    roast (FL on sale) with red potatoes and onions (my brothers garden:) ), cabbage (brothers garden), and apple cobbler (brothers apple trees). My brother provides me with a freezer full of frozen apples along with fresh ones, raises our family a row of red potatoes, cabbage, strong beans, onions, and tomatoes..he also shells me a dozen packages of pecans to go in the freezer every year. In return, I provide his family with Charmin, Bounty, Puffs, Aleve, Bayer, shampoo, body wash, clothes detergent, fabric softener, and cleaning supplies...and LOTS of freezer bags:) A wonderful arrangement!

    My husband purchased a rabbit at the Farmers Market awhile back. It had been sitting in the freezer ever since, so I made rabbit stew in the crockpot. It was delicious and super healthy for our sick family.

    I am waiting for my son to finish mowing the yard. I was planning on cashew chicken (not the cheapest dish but still good) but am kindof in the mood for a hamburger. So I am not completely sure.

    I am trying to hold onto to summer by making grilled burgers (marked down beef from Kroger), corn on the cobb and coleslaw. Will probably throw in some waffle cut fries I got on sale at LF a while back for the girls (who don't like cabbage).

    Faye- lol... no cheese... and lots of it ;-)

    And tonight we're doing pasta, but wanted to pass on how good our nachos were for lunch. We used the Snyder tortilla chips (LF sale), a rotisserie chicken, those new Bush's Mesquite Grillin' Beans (from past LF sale, and shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese (HT sale)... throw on a bit of Snyder's salsa (LF sale) and YUM... the beans made it so delicious!!! :-)

    Well done, Oxy! Sounds like he will be much better prepared for the real world than many his age. His choice of dinner sounds great.

    My son is 17, and we're working on grown up skills. This week, it was shopping, planning a meal and cooking an appropriate amount for others.

    He chose the pork picnics, russet potatoes and grapes at FL.

    He did a fine job with the hand cut French fries.

    Bacon, lettuce, and cantaloupe, RaleighFoodBlogger?! ;-)

    I was at my daughter's band competition until about an hour ago so there was no dinner tonight - only overpriced concessions. I have no idea what my husband and other daughter had. lol
