    jdouglas13 - I have seen many items increasing 10 - 20 cents lately. It is not just you. Anything related to crops, cows, corn or product (especially coming from the drought plagued California) is also going up.

    We had a big lunch at O'Charley's with my dad today (who used a 20% off coupon had got in the mail - I was so proud!) so whatever I have will be very light. Maybe even cereal with fresh blueberries I bought today. I will probably pop in a Red Baron pizza for the kids and one of their friends who is spending the night.

    Tonight we're going to have the chicken and dumplings I wanted last night since I got to HT today.

    Is it me, or do grocery prices seem to have taken a big jump lately?

    Saturday night we went out to eat. Sunday will be pork chops, oven roasted red potatoes, and steamed green beans. If DH wants it, I will add some steamed broccoli.

    Kathy - love those leftover nights!

    The pizza was great. I topped the HT dough ball crust with Bertolli mushroom sauce, sauteed mushrooms and green peppers, fresh tomato slices, garlic, Italian seasonings, fresh basil from my porch and Sargento mozzarella cheese. Yum.

    Leftover sesame chicken, leftover macaroni and chicken, leftover greenbeans and corn on the cob.

    Jdouglas - those chicken dumplings sounds delicious!

    We did not end up having the homemade veggie pizza last night so it is on the menu for tonight.

    Leftover pulled pork/broccoli/rice for me, probably scrambled eggs for DW. What I would like to be having, had I been prepared, is chicken and biscuit style dumplings. Maybe tomorrow if we get out to the store.
