    Your dessert tonight sounds so good, Faye. I love angel food cake. Where did you get the berries? Are they starting to come in yet? I am waiting with baited breath for asparagus season.

    Speaking of seasonal yummy foods, I was tickled to find black jelly beans yesterday when we were out shopping!

    Breakfast for dinner tonight. Breakfast sausage links with either pancakes or French toast.

    GatorGirll, your menu for last night sounds wonderful.

    Ascherer, enjoy having your Momma home. Once she rests up, I'm sure she'll have a ton of stories about her adventures. :)

    ThomasG, you could not have come up with a more adorable name for NBS. Ziti. I love it. :)

    Your veggie and beef stir fry sounds so good, ybaverage2003.

    Tonight we are having bagels and cream cheese, crab cakes, steamed broccoli and angel food cake with strawberries and whipped cream for dessert.

    Last night was a beef veggie stir fry over brown rice. EXTREMELY frugal dinner: Had most ingredients in pantry and refrig...got package of beef chuck ends for 7 CENTS at LF. Was just the right amount for stir fry...fed 2 of us for dinner last night AND lunch today :) Tonight is meatloaf with BBQ sauce, roasted potatoes and roasted broccolini.

    Tonight was breakfast for dinner - bacon, egg and cheese biscuits. Sunday is dinner at my Aunt Jerrie's. I heard a rumor about pot roast. No clue on sides yet. Momma and I will make something to take.

    Momma had a wonderful trip but came home tired as all get outs. She enjoyed the trip but is glad to be home.

    We (well, maybe just me - lol) are having a new recipe I found online for Zucchini Pizza Bites. Low carb and fits the bill for my pizza addiction. :-)

    I actually don't have zucchini right now so I am going to use roasted green peppers instead as the base. I can't wait to try them. Below is the recipe link. I will be omitting the pepperoni and adding sauteed mushrooms instead. No surprise there. I made BBQ chicken in the slow cooker last night so I will probably top some of my little green pepper pizzas with chicken as well.

    I plan to try the zucchini version in the next few days.

    RAESMOM1612 - I hope the new addition ( "Ziti" ?? ) had a wonderful first night with her wonderful family and her mama can eat again .
    DW and I are still enjoying our coffee so no supper decisions made here yet .

  • Gator Girll Jan 30, 2016

    We are having company tonight so I settled on a peppered pork loin with a cranberry "chutney", a brown and wild rice pilaf, and a yellow squash and white cheddar gratin. Dessert may be something simple as sorbet. Of course all of this may change depending upon what I find at the store.

    Tomorrow night is an out to dinner night with a couple of friends.

    Tonight is whatever Momma wants. She is back in the states and should get home around 2 pm.
