    Have fun at the picnic tomorrow!! Wish I coild be there!
    We had soccer practice tonight so ended up getting grilled chicken sandwiches from McDonalds. How do people afford to eat out with those kind of prices????????? Makes me so glad we cook!

    ascherer - wish you could be there, as well! And we ended up having DiGiorno and salad per the request of the kids.

    We are doing either the gourmet buffet again (DH skipped out on it last night because of softball) or frozen pizza (on sale at FL).

    Everyone have a great time at the picnic. I wish I could be there.

    i need something quick and easy tonight since i will be getting the wings ready for the picnic tomorrow, so i will be making ground beef tacos with all the trimmings. Refried beans, lettuce, salsa, shred cheese, tortillas, corn and sour cream. All bought on sale for free or cheap :)

    Tonight we are having spaghetti. I've been slacking on the cooking as well lately so I'm easing back into it. The pasta is free from HT sales (I have a whole shelf of different kinds now), pasta sauce was also from a sale at HT a couple months ago and I will load the sauce with a lot of fresh veggies including onions, peppers, mushrooms, carrots, and broccoli from recent Aldi sales. We'll have salad to go with it using all produce sale items from Aldi and I'll make some garlic bread for the hubby.

    Last night we had grilled chicken breasts (LF sale) with some of the hibachi-style mustard sauce leftover from the other night, rice, and steamed broccoli to DW's delight. Not. ;)

    Making a cheesecake today, and maybe cookies. I have been totally slacking in the dinner-making department lately, so hopefully I'll do better than a fried egg sandwich with a Napoleon on the side that we had on Wednesday. DW would probably be thrilled if we had hot dogs on the grill.

    Rice Noodle Salad with Chicken and Chile-Scallion Oil- from last month's Bon Appetite. Split chicken breasts, scallions, cilantro and soy sauce on sale at HT, had rice noodles from last visit to Asian Market.

    Tonight we are having: Philly cheesesteak subs, baked sweet potatoes and strawberries.

    One of my b-day gifts was a flat of delicious, fresh picked strawberries from someone my husband works with! We enjoyed a bunch of them last night and will have many more today. I will freeze some for the coming months as well.
