    Tonight is chicken that DH grilled last night with the London broil. Probably a baked potato on the side and green beans.

    Great dinners tonight everyone.

    Kathy S. - that cake sounds so unique.

    Autumn_nut - great buy on the taco meat!

    Jdouglas - thanks for the soup offer. I am finally starting to feel better this evening and only had one big coughing outburst during the class today. lol

    Ascherer, grilled London broil sounds great, and the weather is perfect for it too. Wish I had thought about taking something out of the freezer.

    Kathy, I took a look at the cake recipe -- it looks wonderful!

    Grilled London Broil and veggies. I will add some kind of potatoes - I just haven't figured that out yet.

    Dinner at a friends. Bringing dessert. Best chocolate cake I have ever made.

    I use gluten free flour and it still comes out scrumptous. I use canned icing but everyone raves about the cake. Brought this to my friend's last time they had us over and they requested it again. Weird recipe though. It calls for 1 cup of very hot strong coffee and the batter is like water after adding the coffee, but when you bake it up it turns into cake. Yummy, scrumptous chocolate cake.

    Red, Hot and Blue it is! Pulled chicken BBQ platter I think.

    We are having a taco bar tonight with 1# of Taco Seasoned Ground Turkey I bought on sale at Wal-Mart for $1.40.

    Enjoy your birthday dinner, Twinredheads. :)

    I hope you're feeling better soon, Faye. Let me know if you need some chicken soup.

    Tonight think we are having "unstuffed" stuffed peppers using the bag of mini peppers on sale at HT. I'm thinking a layer of halved peppers, and then topping them with a mixture cooked rice, either chopped meat or prosciutto, sautéed EB Farms power greens mix. I'll add some garlic, onion, maybe a small can of diced tomatoes, and some chicken broth. Lots of parm on top, then baked. Maybe some bread on the side.

    twinredheads - so many good choices... I'd have trouble deciding, too!

    We are probably having soup and sandwiches here tonight. I have a cold and soup is easy and tasty.
