    I really need to pick up some of that shrimp this week! Thanks for the reminder.

    LOL, the scampi sounds pretty good to me, too, Faye. Just need to make sure I have lemons. I think Lowe's has the Argentinian shrimp on sale again this week for $6.99/lb, which is what I'll be using for the scampi from the recent sales.

    Jdouglas - I'm going to vote for shrimp scampi with thin spaghetti for you because it sounds so good! Your turkey with stuffing sounds great as well.

    Tonight is clean out the fridge night. There are too many options to name, but there is something for everyone! :-)

    Last night we enjoyed the fresh turkey breast we bought at HT with stuffing, cranberry sauce, and no veg at DW's request. Looking forward to turkey sandwiches over the next few days.

    Tonight I'm thinking about something with pasta and am trying to decide between spaghetti with sausage, baked ziti, or shrimp scampi with thin spaghetti.

    Spiral sliced ham (Kroger), mashed potatoes, asparagus (HT), Sister Shubert rolls (HT). We will be having angel food cake with strawberries and whipped cream for dessert. Happy Easter everyone!

    Raesmom - thanks for the recipe! Mine are similar, very hard to pin down exact measurement. The baby shower sounds so sweet. :)

    rduwxboy~I rarely use the velveeta I more so use the cream of chicken soup since its way cheaper. Thanks for the heads up on the velveeta :)

    jodouglas lol with recipes for me!! I kind just throw everything together no measuring but here goes a shot......This recipe is for the crock pot and also includes bacon :)

    1st layer slice potatoes very thin and season how you like (I usually use Goya adobo, oregano, onion and garlic powder, and pepper) add to bottom of a crockpot, throw a few onions in there (I love onions and garlic!!) next layer is shredded cheese, next layer is bacon (already cooked) repeat potatoes cheese and bacon. Over top you can add either a can of cream of chicken soup or cut up a block of velveeta cheese so that it can melt through out. 8 hours on low or 4 and a half on high and cheesy potatoes are done. I'm sure you could do this in the oven as well, but I always do them in the crock pot. Hope you get to try them. Let me know what you think :).

    Sorry it took so long to reply, I was hosting/throwing a baby shower for a friend. Lots of fun :)
