    It was an awesome experience and I can't wait for the next one! I had shrimp etouffe from a baton rougue food truck and DH had shrimp and chicken gumbo.....I liked his better lol. We also had chocolate dipped cheesecakes for dessert. Mine was cheesecake dipped in white chocolate topped with sweet coconut flakes and a raspberry sauce drizzle, now I want another one lol. DH had a peanut butter cheesecake dipped in milk chocolate topped with crushed peanuts and a chocolate sauce drizzle. We tasted a couple of beers too. Weather was beautiful in Durham today.

    Gregory vineyards is really nice. We've been before using a groupon and we found our favorite wine. Its called Lee Love, it's a very sweet dark red wine. The groupon we bought includes 2 souvenir glasses, a cheese plate, a tour and a bottle of wine. We can't wait to go back.

    ascherer - that sounds wonderful! That light mushroom cream sauce over pasta would taste great.

    raesmom1612 - What a fun day!! I love food trucks! What did you get?? And your wine tasting sounds like lots of fun.

    jdouglas13 - I'll be over for those sausage and peppers in 15 minutes. ;-)

    Hey yall thanks so much!!! I'm just grateful that our anniversary was on a weekend or else DH would not have been here. We had an eventful day. We went to the food truck rodeo in durham (my first time at a food truck rodeo) then we went to walmart to pick up the protein shakes, then jetted over to Carrabbas :) it was a great day. We also have a groupon for wine tasting at Gregory Vineyards that we are going to try to use next weekend. Dinner tomorrow, leftover Carrabbas for Rae and I.

    So dinner tonight is chicken cutlets covered with ham, spinach, provolone in a light mushroom cream sauce over penne pasta. Plus I saved 36% using the buy 5 save $5 twice and most things being on sale.

    Happy Anniversary, Raesmom -- hope you're getting to Carraba's for a nice dinner with DH, Rae, & Baby Ziti. :)

    Last night we had burgers on the grill and potato salad I had made earlier in the week.

    Tonight is going to be Italian sausage and peppers with tomato sauce over ziti. Aldi's had a deal on a package of 3 peppers -- 1 red, 1 orange, 1 yellow -- for $2.79 this week. Maybe garlic bread on the side if I can find some bread in the freezer.

    Dinner tonight will be whatever I find at Kroger.

    ascherer - Isn't it your anniversary this weekend as well?

    Happy Anniversary to both of you!!

    Raesmom - Happy Anniversary. I hope it is a wonderful one.

    Tonight it is fend for yourself night. :-) We have a variety of leftovers and sandwich stuff to pick from. I am having roasted veggies and rye bread.

    I wasn't able to make the chicken quesadillas last night so that is on the menu Sunday night.

    I am guessing that with this beautiful weather, there will be a lot of grilling this weekend.
