    Was planning on doing homemade pizzas and then my DH informed me they fed them pizza at their work retreat :(. So, pizza for the girls with leftovers for their school lunches tomorrow and pasta with tomatoes from our garden for hubby and me.

    jtlnsw, you have my deepest condolences. There is no word I can use to describe moving that the censor won't nail me for. Do yourself a favor and pack yourself a survivor bag with everything you need to take a shower including soap and towels, a couple changes of clean comfy clothes, and the makings for coffee if you need it as bad as I do in the morning. Include a lightbulb, scissors or Swiss army knife if you have one, a flashlight, and all your chargers for everything.

    Dinner is leftover breakfast casserole, although I'm a bit dubious because it doesn't really reheat very well. I'm thinking it may actually end up being a cold plate for DW -- tuna salad and cottage cheese.

    jtlnsw~good luck with your move!!

    Yummy dinners everyone!

    Tonight I was going to make a breakfast casserole, but couldnt find and susage, so I decided to make a big pot of chili, but its 90+ degrees out, so im going to make tacos instead :)

    jtlnsw - good luck with the move! You are so right - there is NOTHING easy about moving!

    Nakabi - cajun mahi mahi sounds very good! I am so impressed with your garden this year. I only grew tomatoes this year. Just no time for a big garden with so much going on last spring. Next year I plan to really get it in gear (I think I said that last year...). lol

    Tonight is hotdogs for us too! Managed to swing by HT last night for the Meal Deal. Life Saver is more like it. We're in the middle of moving and why didn't anyone tell me moving isn't easy??! :)

    Faye, your dinner sounds so delicious too. Oh, and Nakabi, I'll swing by to pick up a plate, I can't pass up artichokes!

    Faye-yum! shrimp and garlic? 2 of my favourite ingredients? count me in!
    Tonight we are having cajun seasoned mahi mahi, saffron rice, lima beans, garden salad using all my wonderful veggies from our garden, and roasted artichokes. Dessert will be fruit salad.
