    aturner25 - how cool that you are supporting Relay for Life!

    jdouglas13 - I agree about roasting on a sheet pan. So delicious!

    Vlynn - we went to Blue Olive Bistro at 1821 Hillandale Rd, Durham, NC 27705. Below is the dessert menu. It's the goat cheese and honey crust cheesecake. It was drizzled with honey and had whipped cream and a raspberry on top. Very nice presentation and absolutely delicious!

    We haven't been cooking much of anything exciting lately, and haven't really been menu planning either. Just eating out of the freezer and pantry.

    Tonight we're are having one of my sheet pan dinners -- roasted cauliflower with bread crumbs and parm, grape tomatoes, and Italian sausage. Magical things happen when roasted all together on the same pan, and no cleanup since the pan is lined with foil and parchment.

    We have had NOTHING for dessert around here lately, so I need to bake something. Maybe a border/boarder cake I've mentioned here previously.

    We have another crazy week ahead, so if I can't stop by to say hey, have a good week everyone! :)

    Last night was hot dogs, chips and coke at the Relay For Life Bingo night my team from SportEndeavors put on. Today just eating leftovers.

    Tonight we are going to my Aunt's for dinner. We are taking some fruit salad we made yesterday. This will be the first time Momma has tried to go out except for appointments since her fall four weeks ago today.

    raesmom1612 - Chipotle - yum!

    We ended up going to a Greek restaurant last night and I had a fabulous Greek salad. But the best part was the amazing ricotta cheese cheesecake with a PISTACHIO crust! It was inspired and I plan to try to attempt to duplicate it with my next cheesecake. It included crushed pistachios and butter and probably some brown sugar. It was so delicious.

    ascherer - rosemary bread would be great with spaghetti!

    Lindabates you said tacos and now I want some lol. Maybe tomorrow. I brown my beef and a half can of refried beans to the meat and have corn, plain Greek yogurt, salsa, lettuce, the rest of the refried beans, rice and cheese as toppings.

    Tonight...... Chipotle lol

    Leftover spaghetti. While I was at Kroger I picked up a rosemary olive oil bread loaf to have with it.

    Tonight I am doing appetizers... so far I've decided on: potato skins, and taco stuffed shells... not sure what else will end up being made.
