    I'm surprised how chilly it is now and am wishing I had planned for something warm and yummy for dinner like soup and bread. I think I might have what I need in the freezer to pull together a shrimp/corn/broccoli chowder with some rye toast on the side. I had been thinking about French toast with cinnamon swirl raisin bread I got at HT SD and breakfast sausage.

    Grilled bbq pork chops. DH is going to grill some blsl chicken at the same time. Sides for the pork chops will be pork-n-beans and maybe grill corn on the cob. The grill chicken will be for dinner one night and then the rest made into chicken salad.

    Dr D - I look forward to hearing how your roasted chick pea experiment turns out! Great price on the dried chick peas for a buck.

    ybaverage2003 - I love slaw on sandwiches!

    We went to the funeral of the mother of a dear family friend in Virginia this morning. On the way back, we stopped for subs near Richmond. I ate half my sub so the other half is what's for dinner. I have an avocado that needs to be eaten today or tomorrow so I am going to put some of it on the turkey and provolone sub.

    Making chicken burgers, topped with a "slaw" using vinagrette instead of mayo. Fresh strawberries for dessert.

    Let me know which recipes you try, Dr D and Raesmom. I want to try the roasted chickpeas.

    I'm planning to try the roasted chickpeas as well. I picked up a HT brand bag of dry chick peas last night (on sale for $1) and I already have a couple of cans of chick peas, so I could compare kind which might work better. Already know which type sounds easier! ;-)
