    And in case you did not notice - there will be no meal plan today...or tomorrow. I am aiming for Wednesday.

    Because......" I'm all about that doubles, 'bout that doubles, Super Doubles." Clearly I have teens. lol

    I am working on the SD list now including the ad. :-)

    jdouglas13 - if the spider is that big, you could also be designated hunter and then cook that baby up for dinner! lol We would need to see the spider take down on video though. :-) Enjoy your ziti.

    mys1983 - I think I will make that frosting for every dessert I bake from now on! My kids would absolutely love it.

    Raesmom - Travel safe. You and your parents are in my thoughts.

    Raesmom, your Spanish rice sounds really good and so much better than 3 am McD. Sending continued good thoughts for your Dad. Drive safe and not too fast! ;)

    As usual, baked ziti seems to be contagious here. I think that's what we're having too. I thought about cooking something on the grill, but a HUGE -- like the size of a quarter at least -- red and brown spider has set up residence and made a monstrous web that completely covers the top half of the patio door that leads to the grill.

    Since I am both cook and the designated insect remover, I think we'll just cook in tonight. ;)

    For the cupcakes frosting/topping I mix 1pk of vanilla instant pudding and 1 cup of milk, tsp of vanilla, and fold in a tub of cool whip!

    Chicken fryer on sale at HT this week. Threw it in the slow cooker with potatoes and carrots. Used the McCormick's rotisserie chicken seasoning as well.

    Faye~I havent talked to him since Saturday. He has been in and out of the room with different doctors and what not. I just can not wait to get to Buffalo this time around. I am told by my sisters that he is pale and swollen. They have no idea we are coming (didnt want them to think they had to cater to us while we are there) so hopefully that will put a smile on both mom and dads faces. Thanks for the safe travel wishes :)
