    Thanks everyone for the good thoughts for my Dad. He was put on hospice today, so at least we know we can get fairly immediate 24/7 help for him if we need it.

    Still no clue what's for dinner, but I'm not the chef tonight (I hope). Dad is having soup. I think I saw some jelly beans in the candy drawer.

    Tonight I made some Filipino spring rolls we called Lumpia, white rice, dinner rolls and left over lomein from last night dinner.

    jdouglas - sending thoughts and prayers your way. Give you Dad a hug for me.

    Faye - Happy Birthday. Enjoy your special day.

    I got everything wrong the last time I posted. Dinner Wed was with the Widow's group my Mom belongs to. It was a hoot. Momma and I both got Chicken Parmesan (with salad and bread) as an early bird special (total $21).

    Dinner Thur was at the Church for working the registration to a workshop. Yes, I will work for free food that I don't have to cook or cleanup after.

    Tonight is left over Chicken Parm with a side salad and a baguette. Fresh strawberries for dessert.

    jdouglas13 - your dad is in my thoughts and I hope he recovers quickly.

    Thanks RFB and Nanee Lion!

    Jdouglas- it's actually quite nice! Most of the recipes are meat-centric (we all know he loves his meat :-) But, I have a list of many that I want to try! And I'm so sorry on your dad. Sending some good thoughts your way :-(

    Faye- HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!!!! Sending hugs and hope you are having such a special day! And what a lovely gift from your kids.

    Happy Birthday Faye. You deserve a great day. Your girls are so sweet, must have taken after you!

    Faye, it sounds like your special day is off to a great start. So sweet of the girls! The necklace sounds beautiful. You're welcome on the cookies -- glad you got some LOL.

    Chinese with extra shrimp and extra mushrooms sounds perfect! Enjoy. If DD#1 needs any baking help, tell her to give me a shout :) I have an easy recipe for an AMAZING chocolate frosting with your name written all over it.

    Thanks JDouglas! I think I decided on Chinese food for dinner so there will be shrimp and mushrooms. yay! Not sure about dessert. My oldest may be making a cake, which is very sweet. They surprised me with a beautiful mom and daughter necklace first thing this morning. It was so wonderful. One of the girls even got up early so they could give it to me before I took the other one into school at 0-dark thirty. And I ate the last of your cookies today. Many thanks!!

    And lunch was the free Jersey Mike's birthday sub and drink! Yum!
