    losltp - we are going with my dad so it has even more meaning.

    Faye - How meaningful that your trip to DC and the Vietnam Wall will have a personal connection for your family .

    Forgot to mention that Mannings is on Main street in Clayton.

    LOSLTP - good luck on the pineapple sorbet. Sounds great!

    Speaking of Memorial Day, my dad told us the story today of how the doctor who took over for him in the very early years of the Vietnam War was the first dr. killed in the war. He was killed very shortly after he took my dad's spot. Very sad. When we go to DC this year, we are going to look for his name on the memorial.

    That does sound good, RFB! We love Mellow Mushroom as well.

    My dad took us out to Mannings on Main for lunch today. I recommend it. The portabella mushroom sandwich is very good.

    I hope everyone is having a nice weekend and remembering those that have died in the service of our country .
    Chicken and dumplings is probably my guilty pleasure (tied with turkey and stuffing) - I just take a spoon and fork to the fridge for the
    DH is working this weekend so today I am making some more strawberry jam .
    My dinner will be salmon, sweet potato and a salad ( DH will not touch the salmon nor the sweet potato so I have them when he is gone ) I am going to attempt pineapple sorbet

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend so far! Today we splurged and got Mellow Mushroom. I love their BBQ Chicken Pizza and DH loves the Meatball Subs. This is our lunch and dinner today!

    We did not end up grilling last night so tonight it's burgers, turkey dogs and beef hot dogs. Sides include corn on the cob, cole slaw, grilled red and orange peppers, mushrooms and onions and frozen vanilla yogurt with fresh strawberries for dessert.

    ascherer- I bet your mom loved the enchiladas!

    twinredheads - I have never been to Saffron's, but I do love Indian food and the menu looks great. What do you recommend?

    Savvysaver - I love chicken and dumplings!

    Nanee Lion - come on down!

    Last night I made chicken enchiladas for my Momma. We had a side of green beans we picked an hour before dinner. No clue what tonight will be but I'm willing to bet it will include a side of green beans.

    One daughter babysitting, the other at her boyfriend's so DH and I are heading to Saffron's with a gift card. Tomorrow night the daughter's boyfriend's family is coming over to cookout. Grilling burgers (bought on AWESOME sale at Aldi's earlier in the week), bratwurst, hot dogs and veggie burgers. Sides of corn (Food Lion), baked beans, green salad with lettuce/spinach from the garden, pasta salad and the guests are bringing dessert. Will definitely have leftovers on Monday :)
