    It's a final clean out the fridge tonight. I'm making grilled chicken on the foreman. There are some black beans so we can do those with chopped tomatoes and salsa with taco shells. We'll also have the last of mixed peppers and broccoli.

    Dr D - WOW - that is a great deal on the milk! Thanks for posting.

    Barbiedoll - thank you! I will let your know. It was a wonderful morning and she even got a surprise scholarship from the Rotary Club (thank you Rotary!).

    Jdouglas - I am so sorry you were in so much pain. I hope the leftovers are excellent tonight. My Cajun shrimp is so easy: saute peeled/deveined shrimp in a little olive oil, garlic and Cajun seasoning (I have McCormicks Cajun seasoning here) until pink.

    JDouglas13 - thank you. I hope you are feeling better today after your bad day yesterday. Enjoy the leftovers. It sounds delicious.

    Lindabates, love your menu for tonight!! :)

    Faye, congrats, and please tell me how you make your Cajun shrimp.

    Barbiedoll, your garden sounds wonderful and I am totally jealous. Enjoy your night off after all your hard work. You deserve it!

    Last night I cooked dinner -- breaded chicken cutlets and junk food noodles (my version of the no longer available Noodle Roni Romanoff). While it was tasty, I was in so much pain after a very long day at the doctor and doing too much standing while cooking, I was too sick to eat it.

    Tonight will probably be leftovers since there was plenty left. I might add something green to the menu as well.

    Aldi in Durham had milk for $2.08 today, limit 6 gallons. Expiration dates were May 22 and May 24 on the ones that I could see.

    Tonight dinner will be sandwiches that each person's makes their own and a bag of chips.

    Faye, please give your daughter my highest CONGRATULATIONS! Wow hard to believe she is graduating from high school. I hope you'll have a wonderful day. Enjoy it.

    I have a coupon that I can use already from Redbox but thanks for the reminder.

    Today is the big day for my oldest so we will be having a nice lunch after graduation. Dinner will likely be leftovers from lunch or something light like a salad with Cajun shrimp.

    Obviously, I'll be AWOL from the blog for a while today. Please post any great deals you find and have a wonderful Friday!

    barbiedoll1967 - Don't forget to do the Redbox 10 days of deals to see if you get a good coupon to use for a movie rental. Text DEALS to 727272 to get a code.

    I think I might go to Subway tonight. I have a text message where you can get two six inch sub meal deals (sub, chips & drink) for $10.00. I can have one tonight and another one later over the weekend. I got my garden done last night so I can rest tonight. Might also rent a movie. Husband will be fishing as usual. have a great Friday everyone!
