    ascherer - great to hear about your mom! Have a good trip.

    jdouglas13 - Your nectarine streusel coffeecake sounds amazing! I'll have to look that one up.

    Ascherer, I am so glad to hear your Momma is doing well. Wonderful news!

    Last night we had takeout pizza for dinner since we were out doing errands close to my fave pizza place.

    I'm not trusting the weather to cook out tonight, so we're having breaded chicken cutlets, sides TBD -- maybe roasted broccoli. I'm making another Bisquick streusel coffeecake with nectarines in it for dessert. I'm a bit embarrassed to say we finished off the first one in two days, it was so good!

    Tonight is dinner at my Aunt's house with all of the beach family. I'm not sure what we are having or what we are taking.

    Faye- Momma is doing very well. This trip is to get some things done around the house before her trip. I will be house and cat sitting them. Plus I just love spending time with my Momma.

    Happy Sunday everyone

    Tonight is slow cooked chicken breast with onions and carrots, sides of corn (leftover from last night) and a salad.

    GJan1 - I had the broiled shrimp and scallops with steamed veggies and cole slaw. The seafood was perfectly cooked in a light lemon butter sauce and it was delicious. The cole slaw was excellent. The hush puppies were a bit crunchy for my taste but that's good since I don't need to be eating any hush puppies. lol The waitress was lovely! I did see the 15% off coupon and I was pretty excited about it. :-) Yikes on the speeding ticket!

    ascherer - I hope your mom is feeling better these days.

    Glad you had a good time. I haven't tried either of the Miller's restaurants. I heard good things about the Waterfront one. I really want to try the seafood one because they have a lot of local seafood. Please give your review of Miller's Seafood and Steakhouse. I noticed online when looking at the menu that they have a coupon available for 15% off dinner. That's all if I can get over my fear of flashing blue lights. I got a speeding ticket the last time going thru Tyrrell County on the way to OBX!

    Tonight is leftover pork loin in gravy. Sides are fresh butter beans, creamed corn, sliced tomatoes and cantaloupe. I love leftovers at Momma. Just down for a quick visit. As much as I am here, I really should just move here.

    ybaverage2003 - Great deal! I love your sides!

    We had a change of plans since I had shrimp for lunch. For dinner I am baking balsamic chicken with sides of roasted sweet taters, corn on the cob and sauteed zucchini and onions. It's a veggie kind of night. lol

    Tonight we are having cajun shrimp on a big spinach salad with lots of veggies and fruit on the side (using the super fruit deals from Lidl).

    GJan1 - thank you so much for the feedback about Kill Devil Hills yesterday. I did not see it until late last night when we got back but the Wright Bros memorial was still very interesting, even though the visitors center was closed. The talk was entertaining and the monuments were neat to see. We ended up going to Millers seafood in Nags Head and then......Duck Donuts!! It was my first time at Duck and it was very good. Next time we will try Black Pelican. Thank you for the recommendations!

    Have a wonderful Saturday everyone!
