    Too lazy to go out so :
    my easy meal -
    grilled chicken breasts , corn on the cob and green beans. homemade ice cream.
    On the table in 10 minutes and someone else does the dishes/cleanup .

    cdavismk1 - YAY! Can't wait to see how you like the mushrooms and congrats on your daughter's upcoming wedding!

    raesmom1612 - now that was too funny! Sorry we missed you! Olive Garden sounds great!

    RFB - your chicken and salad sounds delicious!

    I agree with the no oven route tonight so we are having our eggs on tortillas instead of biscuits.

    Hey Raesmon! I forgot about the olive garden Q!!! I may do that instead!

    JUSTME- that pizza is sounding good about now!

    And tonight I'm making chicken salads. I found bags of frozen chicken tenderloins at Trader Joe's (so convenient to use them as I need them), so I'll defrost some up and pan fry with some garlic, fresh rosemary and lemon juice to top on the salads. And Siggi's yogurt from HT for dessert (there is a Q on their website home page!). I seriously get more excited about that than ice cream these days... and it's super healthy- wow!

    I missed the caravan as well. NO COOKING at my house. Have my daughter's bridal shower in the morning and I'm COOKED OUT and WORN OUT!!! Faye, I'm making your mushrooms for "Lake Appetizers" for tomorrow night! Can't wait!!

    I drove past everyone's house last night and all the lights were I went home and fell asleep :)

    I'm so not cooking today (and maybe for the rest of the weekend or until it cools down) so we are going out. Maybe to Olive Garden and I'll use the $6 q that Faye posted about yesterday.

    tonight feels like a $5.00 pizza from little ceasers...lazy days!!!

    I am thinking something cold. Chicken salad on leaves of romaine, sliced garden tomatoes and macaroni salad. You're right YBAVERAGE2003 it is too hot. And G'Toy I wanted to come but didn't want to appear pushy. Plus the caravan never came to pick me up:) I bet those ribs were tasty!

    garnertoy - lol Clearly they got lost on their way to get me.....

    ybaverage2003 - I am borrowing your dinner idea for tonight - thanks for the idea.

    We are having egg, turkey bacon and cheese biscuits for dinner. Side of fruit salad.
