    Meredith, thanks for the link for the farm. Oh, the farm looks like such fun. There is a farm near our house that has baby goats and a baby donkey. I am dying to go play with them. We were just at NCSU yesterday with The Princess. Wish I had known!

    Raesmom, glad the Nutella came to the rescue! LOL Probably a good thing you didn't bring home that baby chick..... it's hard to say who would have loved it to death the most! Kitty, Princess or Rae! ;)

    Uummm that last sentence should have said chowdown not chief own Sorry. And jdouglas nutella totally hit the spot. I forgot I had it until at 10pm I opened the cupboard and it was like a beam of light!! I spread some on grahams cr@ ckers and had some sweet tea to wash it down. Thanks for the nutella :) you saved me from having to make brownies last night lol!!!!

    Yea jdouglas the farm was a blast and I'm looking forward to the chowdown too! Rae had a blast.....but there were a lot of kids!! I would totally do it again. Rae for to hold a baby chick.....and I thought about brining it home. That thought lasted two seconds when I remembered the mini zoo we already have here at home lol. I'll let y'all know what we find at the chief own on Sunday :)

    JDouglas, thank you! I love to cook!

    Here's the farm even Raesmom was mentioning. https://www.cals.ncsu.edu/farmanimaldays/ It just ended but looks like a lot of fun!

    That does sound like fun, Raesmom! And what's this about the farm? I need details please! I thought of you and your wanting brownies/chocolate last night. I was going to say that back in the day when my chocolate cravings got really bad, I would make a little bowl of chocolate frosting for myself. Nutella straight from the jar would do the trick too! LOL

    Meredith, you are such a creative cook! You inspire me!

    I think we're having breakfast for dinner tonight. Maybe I can con DW into making the bacon for me. It's one of the things she cooks really well, and I consistently burn. Maybe a roasted veggie frittata too. Magnum bars for dessert. :)

    raesmom1612 - the Chowdown sounds like so much fun! Let us know what you get there. I'm living vicariously through you. lol

    The girls and I are on our way to the farm at nc state this morning so no idea whats for dinner. DH is back this weekend so I know I'll be cooking at least one day. MIGHT have to be today as I would like to use the Carrabba's 15% coupon tomorrow and we are going to the Chatham street Chowdown in Cary on Sunday (like a food truck rodeo). I might do burgers or chicken........and brownies :)

    I am teaching tonight so it's fend for yourself night at my house. lol We have plenty to chose from so I am certain nobody will starve.

    After 4 nights in a row of new recipes, tonight is a simple dinner! We're having pizzadillas. Everyone gets to pick the exact toppings they want. Choices are ham, bacon, onions, peppers, mushrooms, spinach, olives, and tomatoes. And anything else I find in the refrigerator that I think could go on a pizza ;-) Side of fresh fruit.
