    TheRealNCYankee - LOL! That's nice that you can get the meal for 1/2 price.

    meredith88- I hope you are feeling a little better this evening and can enjoy some dinner.

    jdouglas13 - you know I would love that shrimp recipe with EVOO and butter! Yum!

    A late-night half-price meal from the restaurant where I work my part-time second job. The struggle is real.

    On my own for supper tonight and still not completely over this stomach bug so I'm not sure what supper will be. If I feel like eating I might just heat up a Lean Cuisine that I keep in the freezer for emergencies. If not then I'll be drinking more Gatorade and chicken broth :-/

    As usual I forgot to post the dinner menu. :p Probably because I don't have it figured out yet, so I'll post a meal we had a couple of nights ago that was really yummy and took less than 20 minutes start to finish. I put a pot of rice on to cook. In a saute pan, I sautéed a pound of P/D Argentine shrimp that were on sale recently in a little EVOO and a bit of butter. My shrimp were still frozen. You don't have to defrost them. Just rinse them under cold water. When almost done, I added lots of garlic, and asparagus cut into thirds. Cook another 2 minutes, swirl in another little pat of butter, and turn off the heat. Mix in the zest and juice of 2 small lemons. Mix the shrimp and rice mixture together and serve with a little parm on top.

    Stasan, are you a fellow foodie? That vinegar sounds divine. There are some flavored vinegars that are so good. You can make a wonderful, super easy salad dressing with them that don't even need any oil. One of my faves is pomegranate. They can be a little pricey, but you just use a couple of tablespoons at a time, so overall not so bad.

    I'm seriously thinking about heading to HT for the rotisserie chicken deal today as well.

    Last night I roasted a package of pork tenderloins (one for leftovers) and served it with baked potato and fresh green beans. The Princess got DW's green beans.

    Chicken alfredo on penne pasta, salad, garlic bread

    stasan1 - what is champagne pear vinegar? I think I need to splash lots of food in it. :-)

    Harris Teeter $4.97 rotisserie chicken (on sale today), steamed broccoli splashed with champagne pear vinegar and rice pilaf.
