    RFB - YAY!!! Congrats on the new place! Good luck with the big move. And yum on good Chinese takeout!

    It's fend for yourself night here. One of the kids is going to a party and won't even be here. I am having leftover Tuscan chicken, green beans and leftover corn on the cob. N

    Jdouglas- thank you! It's mostly a give and take... great location, shoebox of a place lol! But, always up for a great adventure :) And your peppers sound amazing! I haven't bought prosciutto in far too long. Delicious!

    Easy dinner tonight. Leftover stuffed peppers and Caesar salad.

    The peppers were good - yellow peppers stuffed with rice, crispy prosciutto strips, spinach, a chopped fresh tomato, lots of sautéed scallions and mushrooms, a little leftover crushed tomatoes. I poured some chicken broth over them and about an inch deep in the pan, which also held the leftover stuffing. Topped with parm, of course ;) and baked about 30 minutes.

    RFB, congrats on getting the keys to your new place! I'm more than a bit envious of your new location -- so close to all the good stuff!

    Im thinking gourmet buffet tonight. I have some bbq drumsticks with rice and beans from last night, pasta from a few days ago and some pork chops in there as well. Been a long day at work all alone today so Im not cooking!

    We're getting Chinese take out tonight!!! We haven't had a Chinese restaurant close by that we've really liked since we've lived here the last 2 years. There's a great one that I love close to where we're moving... getting the keys to our new place this afternoon YAY!

    WildFrenchRose - come on over. Your invite should be in your mail box around 3:00. You bring the extra bacon and I have everything else covered. Somehow a lot of the first batch of bacon ends up in me and not on the BLTs.

    Can I come to dinner? I'm sure my invitation is in my mailbox as we speak, but in case it got lost...
