    Raesmom - such wonderful news!! I am thrilled for all of you!

    Change of plans on dinner tonight. I forgot I am taking youngest to see a friend graduate from a small private school here in JoCo tonight so I am throwing in a frozen pizza for everyone before we had out. We'll also have watermelon and raspberries. Guess the turkey sausage and veggies will be Friday night.

    jdouglas13 - glad you finally woke up so she didn't starve last night. lol

    Raesmom - That is wonderful news. I will keep praying for all of you.

    I think dinner tonight is going to be pizza.

    Raesmom- that is fantastic! I'm so happy to hear that!!! :-)

    And tonight we're doing frozen food (I know!) I've been driving around all over the place house hunting these last few days, and I'm exhausted. At least the Mandarin Orange Chicken from Trader Joes is a good option... delish!!!

    Thanks everyone!! I feel like its finally starting to get better for her! And you can imagine Rae's excitement when she heard grama for the first time in a while. Yesterday she syas "mom we need to call grama because I have to check her voice" lol that kid is a trip!!

    jdouglas~I'm thinking either creamy (using cream of mushroom soup or a packet of pioneer country sausage gravy) or sweet and sour pork chops using the tangy sauce recipe from this herb roasted pork tenderloin recipe below. Its a super simple sauce which includes soy sauce, sugar, vinegar, water and cornstarch all staples in my cupboards :) Just depends on how adventous I feel after my hour long zumba class tonight.

    Raesmom, I'm so happy you got some good news about your Mom!! I know what a very long, difficult road this has been for you and for her. BTW, how are you making your pork chops?

    Dinner tonight is Caesar salad mixed with shrimp, corn, tomatoes, and some cubed Texas toast for croutons. Much more impressive than last night's dinner which ended up being a grilled cheese sandwich at 1:30 am. I had intended to take a quick before dinner nap, and never woke up until 1:00 a.m. DW was trying to make chips be enough for dinner.
