    Ascherer, here is a link for the recipe for the chicken:

    So glad to hear your Dad is coming home and that you were able to enjoy some special time with your Mom. I know how precious those moments are these days

    Today we are having hubbys favorite Baked Ziti with a salad and Pepperidge farms garlic bread on the side. For dessert it will be either peanut butter cookies, brownies, or cupcakes. Just depends on how adventurous Rae is feeling lol

    Tonight was grill pork chops and corn on the cob (on sale at Kroger), with oven roasted red potatoes and steamed green beans (from Momma's garden). After dinner, we made chicken salad with grapes and almonds in a mixture of sour cream and mayo. Then we made cream cheese banana nut bread muffins. It was a fun evening of cooking with my Momma.

    This weekend, we started changing things in their house to prepare for my Daddy coming home from three weeks in a PT facility. We will all be glad when he gets home.

    jdouglas - please pass along the recipe for the mustard-lemon-herb chicken. That sounds divine.

    Dinner was something a bit different tonight -- garlic parmesan orzo which was almost risotto-like, roasted mixed veg, and a new mustard-lemon-herb chicken. It was good for a change. Tomorrow is baby back ribs, corn on the cob, Caesar salad, and cheesecake for dessert.
