    Lemon Pepper Salmon salad. I'll put almost any protein on a salad :)

    Leftovers, leftovers and more leftovers. Oh that's right. It's gourmet buffet. :) We have spaghetti and meatballs, rotisserie chicken, roast beef and gravy, and spiral ham. So it's fend for yourself night here and for the weekend until the leftovers are gone.

    Have your DH come pick me up on his way to Lindabates house Ascherer!!

    I pulled out a giant pork steak and ground beef (only had one giant pork steak so ill have Rae and DH split it) pork steak Spanish style with rice and beans for them, and a small portion of pasta and meat sauce for me. Have a craving for some brownies so since the oven will be on I may as well pop the brownies in there too.

    LindaBates - Can I send my DH to your house?

    From what I've seen on the What's for Dinner threads for about a month, no one really cares about food when we get this hot/humid and stay hot/humid.

    meredith88 - yesterday's meal thread was really entertaining. Glad you found the grocery store and your salads!

    Jdouglas - I think we are having the same thing. I am probably putting some cajun shrimp on a salad.

    Meredith, I think you'll find both the Food Lions out here pretty nice. The one on Pritchard is bigger/newer than the one on 42, and has a wider selection of items.

    I have been in a fend for self mood most of the week, but knowing that DW burns water, I've been throwing something together for both of us. Tonight is probably going to be something involving salad and shrimp. Exactly what is TBD. :)

    Yesterday's menus were hilarious!

    I made myself stop at the grocery store on the way home last night (so I know where it is!) and buy a few things. So while we did have leftover pizza yes again :-/ we had fresh salads to go with it :-) All I've wanted to eat this week is salad so it made us both happy. I literally only bought the six items for salads and a bag of grapes but I did walk one lap around the Food Lion by our house so I know the general layout. The staff was very friendly as were the other customers in there last night so I'm hoping that's the norm and it will be a nice "base store" for me to go shopping.

    I think dinner tonight will be.... salad for me and leftover pizza for the hubby ;-)
