    UNCW_Ash - I have never heard of making boxed cake mix in the microwave. How did it turn out?

    Nanee Lion - after all the good meals I had in the last few days while my relatives have been visiting, I have to get back on the bandwagon myself on Friday! That fried cornbread does sound amazing.

    raesmom1612 - so glad the ER visit was not so terrible and that Rae will be on the mend soon.

    BBQ ribs on the grill, steamed cabbage, potato salad and old fashioned fried cornbread. I know it is sinful but one day I'll get on the band wagon with Faye to eat healthy. But until then, we'll enjoy!!!

    Raesmom, I'm glad Rae's okay. She's probably struggling with all kinds of new pollen and other allergens that she's not used to. Poor kid.

    Meredith, happy early birthday! Enjoy! :)

    Everyone's dinners sound yummy. Any invites? j/k

    Dinner here tonight is going to be leftover baked chicken drumsticks, corn on the cobb, and possibly a salad if I get to the store for some tomatoes -- I have to pick up some other stuff as well, including prescriptions. I nearly keeled over in the heat before just taking The Princess for a brief walk around the yard, so I'm not looking forward to going out in it again. Is it January yet?

    I have two pork loins in the crock pot-found with $5 markdowns this weekend at HT. Having Margaret Holmes turnip and collard greens (HT sale last week) with it and rice. Then to "bake" in the microwave some Dunkin Hines cakes we found on sale a while back and didn't make while on vacation. My son has been eyeing them! Have fun on all the girl's night outs!

    So that wasnt as bad as I thought. The hospital had a children's express unit. Turns out she has an ear infection and her allergies are messing with her too. So dinner tonight may have to be a frozen pizza since I am going to try to log on and do some work since I missed the day. She will be better soon. :)

    Grilled chicken and home made Mac n cheese made in the crockpot.... dessert will be sonic ice cream cone

    Breaking the "no cooking" theme :) Making grilled pork chops with an orange gastrique, garlic mashed potatoes and bok choy.

    Looks like tonight is N o Cooking Night!

    My brother and his family are still in town so I am not sure what dinner will be yet. Last night my dad took us all out to Logan's steakhouse for dinner. I had a delicious grilled chicken breast on salad. Very tasty. I am hoping there is froyo happening at some point tonight!

    raesmom1612 - How sad! I hope Rae is feeling better very soon! Give her a hug from all of us. And let us know what you think of the escape room outing. Sounds scary to me. :-)

    trichardson0621 - Yay on the free dinner!

    coupon4me - Have fun!

    meredith88 - happy almost birthday!! I hope you have a lovely dinner with your mom!

  • trichardson0621 Jul 7, 2016

    Ohh no I hope Rae gets to feeling better real soon and that Baby Ziti does not get it. I am off to the steakhouse for a work related dinner- so a free meal, which also means no clean up!! Happy early birth Meredith88!

    There's a girls night theme tonight on the blog :) Happy early birthday Meredith!!!

    Our girls night is this Saturday with all of my sister's and I can't wait. We are going out to eat and then headed to an escape room using a deal I found on Groupon.

    Rae isn't feeling to well so dinner for me might be hospital food :/ it's gonna be a long day at the ER for us. Its almost Friday!!!!
