    Small change of plans tonight. The chicken did not thaw even after two days in the fridge. So left over pork chops with baked beans and some veggie out of the freezer. But that pizza sure does sound good.

    Faye- lol! Well, it's all about balance... and I don't ever think I'd give up pizza! :-)

    Jdouglas- That's funny! And yes on the M&C. That's another comfort food, for sure!

    RFB - that sounds like an awesome deal for the pizza and everything else!

    During one of our cross country moves (we drove), we stopped at this restaurant and each ordered a "large" spaghetti and Caesar salad. We hadn't eaten all day and were starving. Each large spaghetti came in a foil catering container that had at least 5 lbs of spaghetti in it. Same with the Caesar salad. We could probably have fed 30 people.

    Didn't get to the store today for veg for the soup, so I think it's M&C and broccoli. DW's dental problems are still going on, so M&C is easy for her to eat. Doesn't that sound like a great excuse to have my fave meal? LOL ;)

    RFB - I was a little shocked for a second! As healthy as you are, I couldn't imagine you chowing down that hard. If it was me? No problem! lol

  • RaleighFoodBlogger Jul 31, 2014

    Faye- oh no... it's all gone.. just kidding! We'll have food for days from all this lol!

    RaleighFoodBlogger - I will be right over to help you take care of that pizza and ziti! lol

    OK, OK, so you all have got me totally craving baked ziti... which always gets me also craving pizza!!! So, I ditched our dinner/lunch plans and got a pizza special from Sergio's Pizza on Louisburg (my last hurrah before "raw food Monday" ;-)

    I'm seriously impressed with the value and it's delicious! We got the Sergio's Super Special for $23.50 (free delivery) which included a Large Cheese Pizza, Baked Ziti, Meatball Parmesan Hero (which is really heavy!) and Six large Garlic Knots with sauce. Can't believe how much food this is... and yes, I'm in pizza/baked ziti heaven as I type lol!

    Wow... just got an e-mail from Amazon for $1 free mp3 download (1 per customer) from downloading the free app. So... I got a 99 cent song for free too :-)

    twinredheads-I bet you will be somewhat close to me :) I'm close to Knoxville.
    I bet Raesmom would love to come join you for the baked ziti :)

    I put a London broil in th crockpot last night and cooked it overnight. Bought it reduced for 1.99/lb! We will have mashed potatoes, garlicky green beans, creamed spinach (using up the last of the heavy creme before it goes bad lol), and brownies topped with sugar free vanilla ice-creme for dessert if I can muster up the energy to go to the store and buy some more cocoa.
