    jdouglas - glad to hear that about your Dad. I knew you would understand the M&C. I normally bake it but will try broiled next time I make it at home. Last night was the boxed stuff. It had been years since I had it. :-)

    Thanks for all the good thoughts, everyone!! We are cautiously optomistic that my Dad's health is improving. Fingers crossed.

    My sister made a delicious roasted chicken tonight with stuffing and gravy, and roasted brussels sprouts. Ascherer, tomorrow night is M&C! :) They like it baked and I like it broiled, so I may make both versions so everyone is happy.

    jdouglas - I'm with Raesmom and RFB. We are thinking about you and your family.

    Dinner last night reminded me of jdouglas. I made some mac & cheese and made the mistake of eating a bite. I made it through a whole serving before I realized what I had done. So I mixed some tuna in with it and called it dinner. Thank goodness I am cooking for myself for a little while. The one bonus traveling has. ;-)

    I'm with Raesmom- jdouglas if you see this, we're thinking of you here, and Ocean says hi too!

    Faye- thanks for the reminder! Can't wait to get the bread!!! The last T&T, my HT didn't even know about it, so they didn't order enough, and of course I ended up forgetting about it when they finally got it in on the last day. Hopefully they have more of this one! :-) And your dinner sounds great too!

    jtlnsw- yes, avocado!!! :-)

    Change of plans from original menu per the request of my eldest daughter.

    We are having shrimp salad, rice, steamed edamame and the free bakery bread from Harris Teeter's Taste & Tell promo. I picked it up today and it looks delicious!

    RFB - that chicken sounds great!

    we have some chilli left over from last night so Rae and hubby will have thinking a salad for me with all the fixin's tomatoes, cucumber, carrots, mushrooms, onions, banana peppers, shredd cheese, eggs and the dressing (im not a big meat eater).

    Jdouglas ~ if you are out there, just want to remind you that I'm thinking of you and your family. Let me know how its going and if you need anything!!

    Cleaning out the fridge :). Choice of bean burrito, corned beef/potatoes, egg salad or ham steak and mashed potatoes.

  • jtlnsw Mar 20, 2014

    Cheeseburgers possibly. I need to pick up some avocado tho, love it with my burgers.

    Tonight we're doing chiken in wine sauce (it's a Paula Deen recipe) using chicken from LF, and I have stuffing mix, swiss cheese, and cream of chicken soup (sounds strange but it's delicious and so simple!) And on the side sauteed spinach (on sale also at LF) with green peas and shallots (have on hand).
