    Aaaaahhhhh I feel so special :) thanks Faye and jdouglas for the recommendation ;)

    Done, jdouglas! Juanita - your famous "Nine Can Taco Soup" is now in the WRAL Recipe Database!

    I agree about chicken thighs as well, jdouglas. Don't do them either.

    Juanita, I think your 9 can soup needs to be in our recipe database! You get so many requests for it.

    My Dad took chicken thighs out of the freezer for dinner. Chicken thighs are to me what a double cheeseburger with pork bacon would be to Faye. Yuck and double yuck. They are right up there on my list with some of my Mom's infamous "special" foods.

    I've been racking my brain for a way to disguise them, but all I've come up with is chicken cacciatore, which I don't think my Dad is a fan of. So, it may be cereal for me. I hope my DW has something better. From what she tells me, she's been eating an awful lot of sandwiches without a veg in sight.

    Leftover chicken tacos & fish tacos from last night at Ruby Tuesday. Two entire meals plus a generous tip = $15! Their business must be down bad for them to send such fabulous coupons!
