    Pork chops homemade "shake n bake" style-my son loves them that way and I just use bread crumbs I find on sale and add my own spices. We will have remaining leftover basmati rice, leftover roasted asparagus (OMG so good) and maybe another veggie if that's not enough. At this point I've now cleaned out all the meat I had stocked up and need to start over. We just have an extra fridge rather than a big freezer and have been working our way through what we had.

    Thanks for the reminders of those store. We went to Ross and Burlington yesterday and completely forgot we have gift cards from babies r us that we haven't used (and a friend came by and brought us 10 boxes of baby clothes.....we are set!!!) and we also kept all of Rae's things (tub, high chair, bouncy chair, pack and play etc) plus got lots of diapers and wipes from the shower as well. I wasn't sure what we were going to use the gift cards for....now I know :) I will be sure to send you pics jdouglas and Faye.....they are going to have matching dresses....well at least that's the plan lol

    Yay for grilled asparagus! My favorite way to cook it. DW has been a bit under the weather, so I am the temporary grillmaster. Last night we had asparagus and marinated chicken on the grill. Very good, and the chicken was only minimally burnt.

    Tonight, the leftover chicken will probably make an appearance in the form of a dinner salad. Details TBD.

    Raesmom, I will definitely need a pick of your girls in their Easter finery! I think Target was running some sales on kids' Easter clothes, and at one point, I think there was a coupon for $xxx off ?? Not sure if that was this week or not though.

    So as mentioned before- grilled asparagus again- can't wait and maybe a nice steak- it is so nice outside. Maybe me and my granddaughter will do some more work in the soon to be garden. Hope everyone enjoys this beautiful day!!

    trichardson0621 - YAY! I am so happy to hear that you liked the asparagus! Great idea to cook it on the grill with the foil. Tonight will be the 3rd night of roasted asparagus in a row for us. lol We are also having leftover homemade mac & cheese (it was soooooo good) and I just put a mushroom and Swiss breakfast casserole in the oven so we will have that as well.

    Raesmom - good luck on the dress shopping and enjoy the park!

    Y'all are making me want to jump on the asparagus band wagon lol

    Last night we had frozen pizza bc we took advantage of the beautiful day and went out to find Easter dresses for the girls and hung out at Pullen Park for a bit. No luck yesterday in the dresses so round two is today. I'm sure we will also make another appearance at the park too.

    Enjoy the day everyone!!!

    So I finally tried Faye's asparagus roasted- the only thing different was I put it on a piece of foil on the grill. All I can say is - You are the bomb Faye- Loved it. It was so good and I am planning to have it again tonite and probably for the next few nites.
