    So I pulled out pork chops but the weather says I should make taco soup or corn chowder sooooo I'll see what ingredients are more frugal when I get to the store later.

    We spent a majority of the day at brewgaloo today and we had a blast. We ate at food trucks, samples lots of beers and people watched before heading home. Made spaghetti when we got home. Quick​, easy and filling. No idea what's for dinner tomorrow just yet......

    Neighborhood potluck/cookout .
    I am taking baked beans ,coleslaw and strawberry buttermilk muffins ( recipe from GOLO mom here at WRAL - i made them into mini-muffins ).
    I took some chicken pieces earlier to get them started on the grills .

    It has been a wonderful day of neighbor helping neighbor . Some are getting older and/or have health issues and can no longer clean gutters, pickup big limbs,wash windows ,haul large trash ,... so many of us pitch in a few time a year to help each other and make our neighborhood look nice .

    Tonight is shrimp casserole with sugar snap peas on the side. Tomorrow dinner is leftover ham, potato, cheese casserole and egg salad BLTs for lunch.

    Happy Saturday! I have no idea what's on the menu for tonight but Sunday night we are having breakfast for dinner with French toast (using the raisin cinnamon swirl bread on sale at FL last weekend), scrambled eggs (using .79/dozen eggs sale from my local Walgreens last week) and fruit salad.

    Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
