    You definitely need to teach them how to shop & stock up !
    I HOPE you can find some decent shrimp ,
    some affordable butter ( I got another $1 coupon from the challenge butter website Friday )
    a pizza place that delivers !!

    Meant to add -- I am so used to no delivery out to the goat farms area where I live, that it never dawned on me to see if there is pizza delivery here! If all else fails, tonight will be pizza for dinner. ;)

    The stew last night was delicious, but we ended up having homemade gnocchi with it instead. We had only 4 tablespoons of butter in the whole house, which is beyond my comprehension, because at home I have 15 - 20 pounds in the freezer at any given moment Thus, no mashed potatoes or biscuits since Dad needed the butter for his Sunday a.m. waffles.

    Tonight Dad is asking for shrimp scampi over angel hair pasta, so it looks like that may be the menu assuming (a) I actually get to shower today so I can get to the store and (b) my sister gets home from work early enough that I can get out today. Here's hoping the store here has some shrimp that is not farm-raised in Thailand or Vietnam.

    We had a change of plans last night. We did the gourmet buffet. Tonight we are doing the chili.

    My husband and I just had the Progresso southwest white chicken chili for lunch and it was pretty good. I was disappointed when that was the only kind they had left at HT but it was ok. We also had a grilled cheese with HT cheese on sale.

    LOSLTP- I agree on FL... I've shopped there quite a bit these last few months! And thanks for the idea on the oven baked chicken. I'll have to give that a try!
