    jdouglas - the chicken cutlets sound good!

    Juanita - I hope your headache is better very very soon.

    I think we are having creamy chicken and pasta tonight, but not sure yet. May end up being veggie burgers, salad and Mahatma saffron rice. I think I will open it up for voting with the hubby and kids. lol

    Some pruned basil from the garden last night with my HT parmesan stash and a fresh chopped tomato turned into ravioli with pesto. Pesto usually tastes better to me after it sits a day, but it was pretty tasty.

    Tonight with be sauteed breaded chicken cutlets (Lowes $1.99 bonesless chicken breasts), romaine salad with leftover Caesar dressing, and some kind of rice concoction with the leftover rice we got from Chinese the other night when I got back from up north.

    Juanita, your teriyaki pork sounds really good. I have a bunch of pork tenderloins in the freezer I need to use sooner than later.

    I've had it in my mind to make a chicken soup/stew thingy with just about any kind of veggie you can think of in it, at least anything I can find fresh. Hopefully I'll be able to at least get to the store this weekend! That fresh corn salad with tomatoes the Brian & Lisa did yesterday looked fantastic--I'd like to try that as well.

    After a visit to the local farm stand and fish market this morning - we're having shrimp with fried okra tonight, and BBQ chicken leg quarters (.69/lb at HT)with butter beans and corn tomorrow night. Peach cobbler for dessert!

    I am going to try the recipe Brian Shraeder and Lisa Price did a couple of weeks ago on the news, those salmon cakes looked good. It will make a nice lunch. Nothing on sale or no coupons for that, but it looks so good I don't care this time!

    teriyaki pork tenderloin in the oven with some kind of potatoes and green peas.

    I don't cook usually most evenings. Probably try out ORO tonight downtown, haven't been yet, and then go out for drinks and music afterwards.
