    Oh my goodness! I am so sorry so many of you are ill!! Sending everyone wishes for a speedy recovery.

    observant - GREAT dinner!! And I am so glad you are finally on the mend. That was one nasty crud.

    Tonight was flounder, steak and shrimp with sides of baked beans & coleslaw

    My DH & I had the "cootie" too !
    It started May 8th - I just finished my 2nd run of antibiotics 3 days ago .
    I have NEVER been this sick :
    temperature over 102 for 3 days - severe head and chest congestion that turned into infection .
    I couldn't taste anything until a week ago .
    I am still tired but at least I can breathe and sleep .

    Hugs to Everyone !

    I have leftover rotisserie chicken. Will probably make chicken quesadillas. I usually have a mixture of quinoa, black rice and wild rice cooked in homemade chicken broth, add beans, chicken, can of green chilis and tomatoes and cheddar cheese. Put inside a whole wheat tortilla and cook on George Forman griddle.

    Same here at the house my son has a soar throat and 100 temperature, the school called yesterday because he is sick and need to pick him up. Tomorrow he has baseball tournament in Harstville SC and he still wanted to play.

    Barbiedoll, there is a nasty cold bug going around that both DW and I have caught. So sorry to hear you have it too. Feel better!

    I wasn't very hungry last night, so just had dessert for dinner! :)

    Tonight I need to use some of the chicken I baked the other night, so I think it will be chicken cacciatore over pasta. Some roasted veg in it would be lovely if I make it to the store.

    Coupon4me, we love grilled chicken that has been marinated in a garlic/EVOO/lemon/herb mixture. Easy and tasty. Goes with everything, and is good leftover, even cold sliced into a salad.

    Lindabates, yay for DH picking up dinner!

    Twinredheads, lemon noodles sound delicious.

    Faye, your comment about fruit reminded me that I have both raspberries and blueberries in the fridge that I bought with the last of the old rainchecks that I need to do something with before they turn to mush.

    Happy Friday everyone.

    Hubby is getting dinner for us on his way home .. either smithfield bbq or Chinese.

  • twinredheads Jun 2, 9:26 a.m.

    Teriyaki ahi tuna, steamed broccoli and cauliflower, lemon noodles

    We have plenty of leftover rotisserie chicken from last night so I think we may have chicken salad sandwiches and pasta salad and fruit salad. It's clearly salad night at the Prosser house.

    barbiedoll1967 - Oh no! I hope you are feeling better very soon. Soup may be just the comfort food you need.

    coupon4me - I hope your weekend is a bit more calm!

  • barbiedoll1967 Jun 2, 7:56 a.m.

    I'm not sure what I'm having. I have come down with a bad summer cold and really don't feel like much. It may be soup for me tonight.

    What a week! Tuesday's beef skewers were really the only meal we made! Wednesday was take out from a cafe and yesterday was leftovers from a work function. I'm thinking we need to cook tonight. I have some chicken - but I have no ideas. Maybe just BBQd/ grilled...
