    We did the no cook Thursday as well and went to a Mexican place. Tonight is shrimp, tator tots, and sugar snap peas. I'm hoping to grill something tomorrow night if the weather cooperates.

    Breakfast for us: scrambled eggs, bread, turkey bacon and grapes. I also have some roasted potatoes to add. Happy weekend, it's here!!!!

    Observant, your local chicken sounds wonderful!

    Lindabates, feel better. :)

    I think I might make breaded chicken cutlets for dinner tonight with a roasted asparagus and pasta concoction on the side. My poor DW has had some truly pathetic dinners lately.

    BBQ'd chicken ( chicken is fresh from a local farm ) , corn ( last summer's bounty I fixed and froze ) , asparagus or broccoli ( DH's pick). banana bread or popcorn with a movie.

    RaleighFoodBlogger - I get the foodie burnout thing. I was never a foodie like you, but sometimes it is nice to take a break. The Shepherd's Pies sounds really good.

    lindabates - I hope you start to feel better very very soon!

    barbiedoll1967 - thank you for the coupons! I got them yesterday. :-)

    Faye, I'm with you on the no cook Friday! I saw they had some frozen Blake's Shepherd's Pies on sale at HT, so I picked up 4. Not sure if I've mentioned this, but it's so good (doesn't even taste like frozen food)! YAY for no dishes again tonight... and hopefully I'll get my foodie inspiration back again next week :)

    Lindabates- hope you feel better soon!

    I ended up having a leftover Arby's roast beef sandwich last night so tonight it's turkey hot dogs and maybe tater tots.

    Still feeling very bad so it's takeout tonight... not sure from where but I'm thinking the options will be pizza, taco bell, or zaxbys

    twinredheads - how fun that you are prom dress shopping with the girls. Good luck!

    walkerwest - what a great healthy way to use up the leftover ground turkey!

    And I should probably clarify that I took out the frozen chicken from the freezer and am thawing it in the fridge. I didn't want you to think I am thawing it on the counter top and breaking every USDA guideline on safe thawing techniques. :-)

    Happy Friday! We're using up leftover ground turkey in meatballs and I'm putting it with spaghetti squash and spaghetti sauce & fresh mozzarella. If I get truly motivated, I'd use up our leftover fresh spinach & make a salad to go with it. It's just the 3 of us so the spaghetti & meatballs already makes a lot for us.
