    Raesmom - Please give your DH and DD a great big hug for me. It takes a very strong person to do the job he does and it takes a stronger family to let him go do his job.

    Great job on the part of the oven.

    Thanks, Dr D! :)

    London Broil (sale at FL) in slow cooker, mashed potatoes, green beans and salad.

    JDouglas, online Sam's shows butter in a 4 pk of 1# pkgs for $11.98, so ~ $3/lb.

    Raesmom- I'm so sorry to hear that. I can't imagine how difficult that must be on both of you, to even have to deal with horrible things like that day in and day out :-(

    And we're so boring lately (but I'm loving the simplicity and far less dishes!) Steak fried rice using some leftover steak for DH, and I'm doing the broccoli and fruit salad with the Kentucky maple dressing again- yum!

    Raesmom, was it the little girl that died in the apartment in Durham?

    Faye, glad it worked out with the avocadoes.

    Me too Faye, 6:30 in the morning it was a sobfest at our house :(

    Yes I'm excited about my deal too

    We're going to have Raesmom's stay-home menu, although I may make the pork in the oven rather than the slow cooker. We have some errands, and I still don't quite trust leaving the slow cooker on while we're out.

    We're in butter crisis mode too, and with two birthday cakes to make within the next week and a half, we will be in pretty bad shape.

    Does anyone know the price of butter in the warehouse clubs? The one in White Oak or Sam's Club? I might even have to break down and buy some at the dreaded Walmart. Does anyone know the price of butter there?

    raesmom1612 - that made me cry. :-( Great job on the deal on the oven part.

    Yes maam, I found the replacement piece on amazon for $11.74 (used a $5 amazon gift card from previous swagbucks) so just waiting for it to be delivered. Normal price is upwards of $60!! That's one thing about being a homeowner....something breaks, you fix it yourself lol

    And yes at times his job is SO stressful, I hate it for him. He was the arresting officer last night. Came home and went straight to Rae's room to wake her and give her lots of hugs and kisses.
