    Jdouglas- im so sorry to hear you needed to go back. Keep me posted and send me a text.
    the gnocchi turned out great using up the last of a potato deal I got at Aldi a few weeks back. Ended up making sourdough bread...yum!

    Yay for gnocchi, Nakabi! :) I'm back up at the folks and on KP duty. I was at the grocery store up here and found a good deal on roasting chickens, so I have an 8 pounder in the oven as I write this, so it will work for dinner, lunch, soup, whatever it needs to be turned into. I made M&C last night and have lots leftover for me and baby sister. Stuffed portobella mushrooms and chicken for Mom. Argula and tomato salad for all.

    I had just scored a great deal on big baking potatoes and stocked up with the plan to make gnocchi when I got the call to get up here fast. I'm hoping DW might be able to bake some and freeze them for me. Does anyone know if you can freezed baked potatoes?

    Brrrrrr it's getting cold! Made a big pot of chicken noodle soup this afternoon while ESPN took a nap. I'll make gnocchi for it (in place of dumplings) courtesy of jdouglas' suggestion a long time ago. Undecided if I'll make bread to go with it or corn muffins. Fudge brownies for dessert with ice-creme.

    Dinner is in limbo tonight. I will be probably out and about with my youngest so not sure yet what we are doing.

    Looks like everyone else is unsure of dinner tonight as well based on the lack of meals posted today. I promise to get back on track with my meal planning next week. :-)
