    Twinredheads, your raspberry tart sounds wonderful! Happy birthday to your DH! :)

    Raesmom, come on over girl! Today's baked delight is border cake. I'm sure I've mentioned it here before. It's sort of the M&C of cake in our house. ;) It's a chocolate loaf cake with raisins, cinnamon, and cloves, topped with 10X sugar buttercream. I always think of my Mom and her Mom when I make it. It's an old family comfort food recipe.

    Faye, stop by on your way home from Wilson, and I'll give you some cake to go. :)

    Coupon4me, I'll trade you some cake for some of your dinner. Yum!

    Meredith, your soup may be what's for dinner one night very soon.

    Lindabates, my DW wants to eat at your house tonight.

    Wifeandkids, thanks for the tip on the freebie! :)

    The girls are having leftover pizza because they refuse to try anything new :). It's DH's b-day so I am making him one of his favorites: curried cauliflower with chickpeas and tomatoes. Will serve with Naan. Picked up a GORGEOUS raspberry tart at Trader Joe's for dessert. Definitely not frugal, but my DH is pretty awesome and deserves it :)

    Last night ended up being corn chowder and grilled cheese sandwiches. One of my coworker's freezers died over the weekend so we've been cooking her food all week before it spoils. Yesterday she sent us a huge pot of fresh corn chowder with potatoes, zucchini and bacon. I added grilled chicken.

    I think tonight will be a repeat of last night's meal since I don't feel like cooking :-)

    Tonight's dinner is sun dried marinated grilled chicken with green beans and macaroni and cheese.

    In my email from Betty Crocker today, there was an offer for a free Nature Valley nut and seed bar. I was able to get it a few minutes ago.

    I'm surprisingly in a baking mood, so we'll see what comes of that today. :)

    Last night's eggplant parm was so good! Tonight I have a lot of veg to use up, so I'm thinking steak or chicken on the grill with a lot of mixed veg also grilled. I have enough that the leftover veg can go into a salad tomorrow.

    I'm teaching tonight and the kids are eating elsewhere this evening. I'll probably have a bowl of cereal or a veggie burger for a late dinner.

    lindabates - so I guess it's a cereal or veggie burger kind of night here. LOL Enjoy your hot dog.

    It's looking like a hot dogs and chips kinda night at my house.
