    jdouglas13 - I am so sorry about your dad. Have a safe trip and drive safe in all that snow. That was really nice of HT to sell you the dough from the pizza stand. Could you tell any difference in taste from their deli dough balls?

    Nakabi - I'm with you on the soup! Everyone else had philly cheesesteaks tonight but I wanted soup so it was tomato soup with croutons for me.

    Jdouglas- oh no. So sorry on your Dad. Sending my best and will be thinking of you in your travels.

    Tried to buy pizza dough at HT late today, but they were all frozen. The folks in the store-made pizza stand were very accommodating though, and sold me a large hunk of dough for close to the sale price. So, a very easy dinner since I didn't even have to make the dough: sausage pizza and some salad in a pathetic attempt to use up some produce. I got a call this morning that my Dad is now very seriously ill, and so I'm flying back up to Oz. Of course, DW has no interest in either cooking or eating the stockpile of produce I just bought. Any takers? LOL

    We got snow here so it's good weather for soup!! I'm doing beef barley and we will have sourdough bread with it that I made and froze a few weeks ago.

    Marinated some sirloin steaks that I've had in the freezer. We will have those with steamed brussel sprouts and some mashed potatoes.

    Thanks LOSLTP. I''m going to check Trader Joe's as I have gotten them there for excellent prices in the past. Joe's is very close to the Walmart so I will head over there if I come up empty. I just wasn't sure if anyone was carrying them anymore and now I know!

    Sweet chicken chili in the crockpot and either salad or green beans.

    Tonight we are having Philly cheesesteak sandwiches, sweet potato fries and salad.

    I saw some beautiful acorn squash at Walmart yesterday - sorry I did not notice the price since I was not getting one this week .
