    Raesmom, yes it is the same one. I need to use anything with salt or sodium sparingly with DW's arthritis or her hands swell terribly. If it were just me, I would be using like you do! :)

    Faye, that yogurt concoction was so good. I can see a lower calorie version of it being a great dip, salad dressing, accompaniment for grilled chicken. Let's hope DW likes it too. ;)

    lol you're welcome jdouglas although I feel like I gave that adobo to you a long time that the same one??? I go through one per month LOL use it on everything!!!!

    jdouglas13 - that yogurt dressing really sounds amazing!

    I'm happy to report that I rescued the potatoes in time before the water boiled away. Since I'm out of sour cream, I used some of my never-ending greek yogurt to make a green goddess inspired dressing in the food processor for the potato salad -- the yogurt, mayo, fresh garlic, fresh basil and Italian parsley, black pepper, and Adobo seasoning (thanks Raesmom!!). I may never go back to my old recipe!

    Garnertoys, Faye and Nanee Lion - I'm split here. My waistline would not appreciate all of Garnertoys desserts but her dinners always sound so good and my tummy says "oh please" everyday when I read her dinner plan. If I was smart, I would just plan on making whatever she is having today minus dessert.

    jdouglas13 - thanks!

    Nanee Lion - I could not eat at Garnertoys house every night because there is no way I could turn down all those fabulous desserts! lol

    garnertoy, I want to move in with you, love that dessert each night. Don't know how you plan so well but I always look forward to your menus.

    UNCW_ASH~Sounds like a recipe I use only I add a can of cream of chicken soup and a block of cream cheese to it towards the last hour and serve over rice or egg noodles.....YUM!!!!

    Faye, I've been meaning to tell you all week how yummy the pic of your vegetable saute looks.

    Ybaverage - yay for M&C. The recipe sounds yummy! I often put the broccoli in the M&C to get DW to eat her veg. LOL

    RFB, your trip to Neomonde sounds like a great success. Looking forward to going there!

    The white pizza last night was soooo good. I'm not sure what I did to it, maybe it was the extra garlic. I ended up with a whole second pizza leftover, so we might have that tomorrow or Saturday.

    Tonight is burgers on the grill, salad, and potato salad. So glad I took a minute to post this because I just remembered the potatoes are on the stove and I forgot to set the timer. Again.
