    Yummy dinners everyone! Losltp, I think yours is my fave too! Please post your recipe for the chicken and dumplings. :)

    We were out for a long time today with stops at the Dr. for DW, a bridal shop, Home Depot and Krispy Kreme. Clearly I didn't see the memo on 1/2 price until it was too late!

    So, I just woke up from a late afternoon nap and dinner will be Caesar salad with shrimp with lettuce and dressing I have ready to go from last night.

    Tonight is pizza night in our household too. Toppings include green pepper, onion, pepperoni, ham, mushrooms, and lots of cheese.

    Raesmom - I know you and Rae will have a wonderful time skating with Olaf.

    Losltp - can you post your recipe for chicken and dumplings?

    losltp - I will be right there helping Nakabi and Barbiedoll wash dishes after the chicken and dumplings! :-)

    Nakabi - your chili and cornbread sounds wonderful! I'll come wash your dishes, too! lol

    lostlp-dishes are a small price to pay for some yummy chicken and dumplings; 7pm works for me!
    faye-brrrrr sounds fun but COLD!
    Raesmom-you and Rae will have loads of fun! Princess Fiona would have a blast with Rae!
    Tonight I'm making chicken chilli and jalepeno cornbread. GF brownies and vanilla ice creme for dessert for the family. Cut up pineapple for me.

    LOSLTP - I love chicken and dumplings! And I don't mind washing dishes.

    Raesmom1612 - I'm sure Rae will have a fantastic time as well as Mom! It sounds like fun to me.

    I'm having leftover lasagna (YUM!).

  • losltp Dec 11, 2014

    dinner is at 7 pm ! all welcome - can you wash dishes??

  • raesmom1612 Dec 11, 2014

    LOL Faye......this one is roller skating not ice skating.....although roller skating may be a lot easier and safer (and warmer lol) I actually prefer ice skating, I guess thats the only "up north" I have left in my bones hahahaha

    Although Rae loves Princess Anna and Elsa.....everytime she sees them she always asks "Wheres Olaf?" so she will be excited to see him!!

    losltp - Just let us know what time to come for dinner! Perfect night for chicken & dumplings.

    Actually, I will be standing out in the cold watching my trumpet player in the Smithfield Christmas parade this evening. They are combining ALL the Johnston County HS marching bands for a giant 600 person band for the parade. It should be mighty impressive. And cold. Did I mention cold?

    Raesmom- that is GREAT! I'm with you thinking she'll probably enjoy that even more :-)

    And yum... all of your dinners sound delicious!!

    Sorry to hear Rae does not get to go to Frozen on Ice but skating with Olaf would be my pick too - will help get some of her energy out .I am going to try your cookie recipes this weekend -peanut butter is my favorite cookie , love sugar ones too ..
