    Tonight is the pot roast. Sides will be mashed potatoes and a side salad.

    Enjoy your Friday eve and night off, Meredith! Liver mush is a Southern delicacy. My Mom would have loved it. :)

    Raesmom, I didn't read your whole post through about the baked beans when I thought to myself -- she's never going to be able to go back to premade. Enjoy. Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!

    I have no idea what's for dinner. I just had a late lunch/snack so I'm not really hungry. My dinner will include the yummy squash saute from last night. So good! It doesn't look like the weather will hold for cooking out, so maybe pasta something?

    So I did some research and made my own version of baked beans. I used a can of pinto beans drained and rinsed, added ketchup, BBQ sauce, mustard, adobo and brown sugar. I will NEVER buy canned baked beans again!!! These taste amazing I can't wait for dinner :)

    Tonight we are having brown sugar bourbon slow cooker chicken on rolls with sauteed zucchini and onions. I cooked 4 chicken breasts with 1/2 the McCormicks Grill Mates marinade packet, about a quarter cup of honey BBQ sauce, 2 sliced onions and 16 oz halved mushrooms in the slow cooker for 5 hours on low. It just finished cooking and it is delicious! Can't wait to enjoy it on a roll with melted provolone tonight!

    meredith88 - enjoy your mushy liver! lol ;-)

    Tonight is bbq pork chops, Mac and cheese and would love some baked beans but don't have any. Does anyone have a recipe for homemade baked beans? I may just go get some......if no baked beans then some sort of green veggie

    I have been trying to cook dinner all week, but it hasn't happened. May be going out tonight, so meatloaf will be put on hold...again.

    I am still in limbo- guess it depends on the weather

    It's Friday Eve! My "night off" from reality :-) I am making breakfast for supper and since it's just me I get to make the food no one else will eat. So tonight I am having scrambled eggs and liver mush. It might sound awful, but it's just so good!
