    Gator Girll- wow, that brought back memories. My Nana used to make that for me when I was little. Delicious!

    Pasta with meat sauce for dinner ( 93% ground sirloin on sale from Lowes Foods).

    I had some leftover smoked sausage so I'm going to add that to some saute'd cabbage and onions with diced tomatoes. May serve some cornbread with it.

    ascherer - Yay! Hopefully you get to see him soon.

    RFB - the ww pasta sounds good. I don't love regular ww pasta either, but this one sounds tasty.

    Tonight we are having breaded chicken, carrots and pasta. And more watermelon for anyone who wants it! lol

    Ascherer- how fun! And Charlotte is such a great city to visit, so you'll have a great excuse!

    Tonight we're doing some simple whole wheat bow pasta with marinara and broccoli, plus a sweet potato and arugula salad on the side. Also, we've tried both the bowtie and orzo whole wheat Fresh Market brand pasta... and they both are AMAZING (plus the packaging is adorable)! I typically don't like whole wheat pasta, and these are great. You can't even tell the difference, and they are reasonable priced.

    That is wonderful news . I am so happy for you.

    No clue what dinner is going to be. Gourmet buffet probably. I may have ice cream to celebrate.

    I am still just over the moon with joy. My Brother and SIL arrived in Charlotte last night after driving in from Colorado. Today starts the first time in 20+ years my Brother and I have lived in the same state.
