    Thanks for everyone's good wishes yesterday on our marriage license!! :)

    I'm not sure what's for dinner, but it doesn't look like anything on the grill tonight since it's kind of drizzly out. I just placed my parm order at HT, and got some lovely asparagus fairly cheap at the Fresh Market yesterday. It was either $2.29 or $2.99 -- can't remember which. When I pick up the parm at HT later today, I think I'll get some of the Boars Head bacon everyone's been talking about ($4 on sale at HT), and dinner tonight will be pasta carbonara with bacon and asparagus. I love one dish meals! I have a lot of eggs, but if anyone is inspired, 18 ct eggs are also on sale at HT this week.

    BTW, HT now has organic romaine hearts for $2.99/3 pack. It's their new "regular" price, and pretty good for organic! They were nice and big, too.

    Tonight we are having beef stew in the slow cooker with veggies and rolls.

    twinredheads - that is a crazy good deal on 90% lean ground beef! Well done!

    cdavismk1 - your Chicken Cacciatore in the slow cooker does sounds great! Enjoy your night out.

    garnertoy - you had me at banana pudding. :-)

    Just scored an AWESOME deal at Aldi's on 90% lean ground beef ($2.36 a pound!!) and so I'm thinking tacos. An employee was placing $5 off stickers as I walked by the meat case so I grabbed 7 pounds (yes, I left some for others :) which works well since we are grilling burgers on Sunday with friends. This was at the Aldi's in Cary and there were still at least six packages left. The 80% lean was getting $4 off stickers as well.
