    Will do everyone, hopefully she will be popping in soon :)

    Observant-house hunting has been put on pause. DH is up for a possible position with the SBI in NC and we are pretty much on hold depending on the outcome of his interview and if he gets the job. Although half of our house is packed up and all walls (except the bedroom) are painted....im actually glad that I'm able to put it on pause for now, focus on new baby smith, and get ready for this week long Thanksgiving trip back home. I think I'm ok with waiting until after NBS gets here (and is a few months old) to move into another house. Our realtor on the other hand isn't too happy about us holding off the sale.....oh well that's how the cookie crumbles some times lol

    raesmom1612 - thank you for the update on Nakabi! Please tell her we all say hello!

    The rain was only sprinkling tonight so we were able to grill the hot dogs and everyone was happy. :-)

    Observant-welcome back. She and I are in touch a few times a month. She was actually in town back in July for a few days. It was great to see her. I'll have to remind her to come visit us on the blog. She and the kids are doing great.

    How about You and Yours ??

    Anyone heard from Nakabi ?? I have not seen her since the Facebook log-in fiasco.

    Jdouglas- I haven't found an Aldi close to where I live yet... I'm going to do an online search now!!! And I'm excited- one of my very favorite recipe creations uses pomegranates- Brie Stuffed Turkey Meatballs with a Pomegranate Cranberry Thyme Sauce. Love this time of year :-)

    Twinredheads- those crab legs sound fantastic! I'm on a shellfish kick lately, and those are on my list in the near future!

    Baked chicken breast (BOGO at LF) with homemade BBQ sauce. Side dish will be roasted potatos, onions & fennel...Everything in the oven !!

  • twinredheads Oct 4, 2015

    Snow crab legs, spaghetti squash and baked potatoes.

    Observant, it is so nice to see you! It's been a while. Hope all is well with you and yours.

    ThomasG - thank you! And if your DW makes the pecan pie, I will DEFINITELY take you up on your offer. Pecan pie is my absolute fave, with homemade lemon meringue running a close second. Yummmmmmmm :)

    Faye, hope the rain stops so you can cook out. Enjoy the hot dogs! ;)

    RFB, did you get any pomegranates at Aldi last week? I'm a little embarrassed to say I think I bought 6. At $0.59 each, I couldn't help myself.

    Since I got a late start on dinner last night (so what else is new) we had M&C and broccoli. Tonight will be what I had planned for last night -- chicken, asparagus, rice. Plus, the chicken is actually defrosted! Yay! LOL

    Tonight we are having light Hebrew National beef hot dogs on the grill, grilled zucchini and onions, mac & cheese, salad and brownies. Dad's coming over for dinner and he loves these hot dogs.

    ascherer - I definitely need to make some bbq chicken this week after reading your menu for tonight. Love BBQ chicken with slaw.
