    I have a bunch of eggplant from HT (1.29/lb) and zucchini from a friend's garden. I'm thinking stovetop ratatouille. I love the frozen chopped onion and bell pepper strips - cuts down so much on prep.

    Leftover chili from last night, but not enough for everyone to each as chili, so we are going to have chili dogs, corn, french fries and salad. Not the healthiest dinner but don't do this that often.

    Well, it's just me tonight & my doggie...I am having a salad from HT salad bar here in Wilson and the doggie is having dry "Blue" food...

    ncsugirlie: ugh...half eaten pizza...WOW...I always check the pizza out while someone from Papa John's or any pizza place is standing there...shocking, just shocking!!

    Yes, and it wasn't even my pizza! I was not happy and my husband definitely wasn't when he took it back up there. I wrote corporate and told them how unhappy I was but also told them how polite the manager was and how she handled the situation...and I never heard back from them! I couldn't believe it when I opened the box after I got home.

    Kat - your dinner sounds delicious as well!

    Papa John's pizza. They owe me free pizza for sending me home with a half eaten pizza the last time I did take out from them. So, I'm using my free pizza to feed me, my husband, and my parents...and I plan to have some for leftovers. :)
