    I told DH he was on his own tonight. We have so many leftovers in the fridge I told him to pick something he wants and warm it up himself!

    DH and I have plans to go to friend's house. DD made spaghetti, meat sauce and sausage yesterday so rest will have that.

    Everyone's dinner plans sound great! You can't beat fun + freebies + family. :)

    If I have enough time to get it together in time to chill, we're having tuna macaroni salad for dinner tonight with the last of the Caesar salad. However, since I just remembered, typing this, that we do have Caesar salad left, maybe I should make life easier on myself and just have Caesar salad with shrimp and some bread on the side.

    Another change of plans tonight... the theme of our week :-) We were planning to make calzones using the dough balls from HT last week however they have been moved to tomorrow night. Tonight we have been invited to go out to dinner with all of my in-laws so we will be enjoying another night out this week for free!

    DH and one DD out of town so the other DD and I are doing a mystery shop dinner at a restaurant I cannot disclose :). Will amount to an appetizer, two drinks, two entrees and a dessert all for free. Pretty frugal considering the report will only take approximately 30 minutes to write. We're following that with a free movie as my DD was kind enough to get a job at a movie theater so movies are one of her perks :)

    Tonight we are having thin sliced balmasic chicken tenderloins cooked on the skillet and served on a spinach and kale salad with lots of veggies, dried cranberries, croutons and a balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Side of corn on the cob (from the Kroger sale this week).

    Ascherer - I hope you have a nice trip to see your mom. Enjoy the cukes!

    Tonight will be dinner on the road. We are going to Momma's for the weekend. I have been told that we will have more cucumbers than we can eat while we are there. My Momma's cucumber crop came in with a bang about three weeks ago and has not stopped. I can't wait to see if she has a watermelon yet.

    Happy Fourth of July everyone. If you have an American flag please fly it.
