    Ascherer, glad you are feeling better!

    Brownies! Yum :)

    Tonight's menu is ravioli in spaghetti sauce with sausage and a little salad with the last of the Caesar dressing. Hoping it's still good.

    I think tomorrow night is going to involve roasted sweet potatoes and roasted brussel sprouts. Haven't decided on the protein yet. Maybe chicken picatta? I think something with a bit of a sauce since the veg will be on the dry side.

    Of course, tomorrow's dinner is at least 24 hours away, and I usually don't decide until the last half hour. so it could be anything! ;)

    Since I have been sick all weekend and had no appetite, we are going out for Mexican tonight now that I am finally craving food. DH was a sweetheart all weekend by making his own meals.

    Chicken and lo mein noodles with stir fry zucchini and mushrooms. My oldest daughter made some delicious brownies this afternoon so that's dessert...if they have left any! LOL

    Salmon steaks marked down at HT today from $9 to $3.5 (going to grill with a recipe found at the store), fresh green beans on sale at Kroger and sweet potatoes also on sale at HT.

    We're doing tacos again with HT sale ground beef. I'll be adding the can of corn and 1 container of the jasmine minute rice along with a pack of mild taco seasoning again. It was so delicious! And we always fry our own corn tortillas to make shells... makes all the difference :-)

    Gator Girll - thank you for the reminder about the ISS! We will be doing the same thing at 8:40!

    I went to HT after a bunch of errands this afternoon and loaded up on their Asian food bar. We're gonna watch basketball and eat Chinese and go out and watch the ISS go over around 8:40.

    jtlnsw - if we were neighbors we could alternate houses for dinner! lol

    jdouglas13 - mélange of leftovers does sound impressive. :-)

    carelesswhisper - our BBQ chicken sandwiches were so good last night. Enjoy yours tonight. Had the BBQ chicken again in a tortilla with that yummy wholly avocado verde salsa for lunch!

    Wow Faye, if we were neighbors my family would find me at your dinner table two nights in a row, lol.
    Tonight, it's grilled burgers with all the fixings and Ore-Ida french fries. They are so goooood.
