    PEPPER@ - I hope it is close to what you are looking for !
    That might be the recipe to finally get my DH to eat cheesecake
    ( it was his mother's FAVORITE - BROOKLYN Cheesecake only )

    Faye - I took your idea and warmed some of the juice from the meat and made mine a french dip too ! I found a small amount of potato soup in the fridge DH forgot to take today ( OOPS !) so I had that as well .
    Your chicken strips over salad sounds very good too . I have some leftover chicken breasts that I needed a new idea for ...

    Observant - Thanks :)

    Tonight we had grilled chicken strips on a salad with butter lettuce (love this stuff) and veggies.

    observant - your roast beef sandwich has me craving a French Dip sandwich. That may have to happen this week. :-)

    hot roast beef sandwich maybe with cheese and a small salad -
    meat is leftovers ( meat sale at Kroger a couple of months ago )
    salad is from sale items at Kroger - including some freebies ( dressing & cheese ) .

    Jdouglas - I can't really describe it ... it's just yummy :) I found a couple of 'copycat' recipes that each say they are so close you can't tell the difference ... but the recipes are so different. I was hoping someone had already made a really good one and would share the info.

    This is the dinner thread, isn't it. Well, hmm. I haven't got a clue what we're having. LOL ;)

    Crank up the caravan bus! Everything sounds good! Hard to choose, so we'll have to make stops at everyone's house. :)

    Pepper, can you describe the Cheesecake Factory pumpkin cheesecake? I've never been there, but I'm pretty good with cheesecake and might be able to come up with some options for you.

    Does anyone have a really good recipe for a pumpkin cheesecake ... don't laugh... that is like the Cheesecake Factory's ? If so... please share :)
