    I finally decided on baked, skin-on, bone-in chicken breasts (a splurge in the fat category), mashed potatoes (yes, another splurge), and steamed broccoli. My DH needed a little comfort food hug.

    I thought I posted this earlier... so if it's a duplicate, please ignore (but I don't see mine :-)

    We're having shrimp tonight too, as you all got me craving it yesterday. We're doing fried rice with shrimp, a leftover chicken breast, peas, onion, scrambled eggs, cooked rice, ginger and soy sauce.

    I am having pasta and turkey meatballs. My dog loves the meatballs! Everyone's dinner sounds great and I would love to have some watermeleon Faye!

    twinredheads - now that's a good deal! Enjoy the dinner and enjoy NOT having to cook tonight!

    After all your posts, I want shrimp again! lol

    We are having veggie pizza, leftover pasta from last night, leftover broccoli from last night and watermelon.

    I had no idea what to make until I came here. I can almost always count on the blog to give me dinner ideas when I haven't planned ahead. I'm going to copy RFB and make shrimp fried rice. I've been trying to think of something to do with the shrimp in the freezer that my husband will actually eat and that's perfect! Thanks RFB for the idea :)

    I'm doing shrimp tonight too... you all got me craving it yesterday :-) We're going to do my simple fried rice w/shrimp, some leftover chicken breast, scrambled eggs, onion, peas, cooked rice, ginger and soy sauce.

    Careless, have fun! I love hibachi.

    I've been thinking about some kind of salad for dinner, maybe with some shrimp in it. I finally got some romaine hearts yesterday. I was hoping to get some of the Earthbound Farm greens that are BOGO at HT, but the stock at the Clayton store was pretty sad looking.

    Mystery shop at 5 Guys. Makes it cost only $10 after I'm reimbursed and paid for the four of us for dinner :)

    We are going out tonight to use a groupon for hibachi. YUM!
