    Well I had planned on Chicken Marsala but that just didn't happen. Maybe tomorrow if DH's softball gets called because of rain/fields too wet to play.

    Ground beef stroganoff, biscuits and choice of veggie (salad, red bell pepper, carrots)

    Sounds like it's mostly chicken for everyone tonight. I finally pulled some boneless chicken out of the freezer. Now, I just have to figure out what to do with it. Looks like a late dinner tonight LOL.

    RFB, your pizzas sound good! I hope I remember to pick up some shredded cheese tomorrow at HT while the sale is still on, along with some ground chuck.

    We are having chicken quesadillas, rice and salad for dinner.

    raesmom1612 - good luck on your dinner hunt!

    jdouglas13 - not even sure what to tell you regarding the cloves-filled apple butter, but based on your description, I think I'll pass. lol

    RFB - using pita bread for pizza is a great idea.

    We are having home chicken pie, not sure about the sides yet... My mother in law went and bought me sweet potatoes this morning- I'm a happy girl!!! May make myself 1 for dinner :)

    You're welcome RFB.

    jdouglas same here!! There is only so much chili, soup or chowder one person can take lol and I forgot to take something out this am too. Maybe I'll stop at FL on the way home to see what they have on yellow tag clearance........

    I thought I'd pop in for some inspiration because I'm not really in a cooking mood and nothing is defrosted. I'm ready to fire up the grill again! Hoping to do so tomorrow.

    So my latest cooking project was to make slow-cooker apple butter. I just turned it off after having it cooking for the last 14 hours. I think I should have followed the recipe a little better because I added cinnamon and cloves to taste. I put in WAY too much cloves. I'm hoping it tastes better when it's cold. Worst case, I use it in quick bread or give it away. Any takers? LOL

    Raesmom- thanks for the update on Nakabi yesterday! I've been wondering as well. Please ask her to come back... I miss reading about her healthy and delicious meals every day :) And please tell her hello for me!
