    Hi Observant! :)

    I'd be glad to send you the recipe for border cake. I though I had your email address, but I hunted high and low and can't find it. Can you send it to me at:

    Dinner tonight is marinated pork chops, white rice, and parmesan ranch mushrooms (.69 from Aldi I bought Tuesday before the sale ends).

    Thank you JDouglas, Faye and EM2S! This is our 4th nephew and we have 4 nieces so we are very blessed! I never get tired of holding the new babies!

    Have a Lovely Birthday Dinner tonight !
    Our supper tonight - homemade sauce over angel hair pasta, salad , bread(?)

    Faye- Wishing you and friends a sweet celebration!

    Meredith88 - I truly appreciate from sharing the births of nieces and nephews how one's heart can actually 'grow seven times' it's size the instant you behold. Being an aunt is such a gift ... lifting you and your family for wonderful memories to be made.

    Supper tonight is courtesy of many awesome deals from Kroger with kudos to their advertising team last week for the panzanella reminder :) A version using the batard ends from Monday's meal will accompany our baked Cajun entree of eggplant 'boats' filled with garlic shrimp and diced fresh veggies topped with a spicy-sweet red pepper roux and melted bits of shredded Kraft cheese (thanks Faye for listing HT $.87 special last week!) Dessert is sorbet with fruit skewers and snickerdoodles.

    meredith88 - How sweet! Congratulations on becoming an aunt.

    GJan1 - Nice surprise! I really like that cereal. Enjoy!

    Tonight I am going out to dinner with friends to celebrate one of their birthdays! :-) The rest of the family will be eating the leftover honey mustard chicken with pasta, rolls and green beans.

    I received my Special K red berries cereal from Kellogg's Family Rewards with Simone Biles and the USA Women's Olympic Gymnastics team on the box. I thought I was just receiving a box, but it's a box with cereal in it!

    Thank you so much, Coupon Nana! :)

    Birthday week continues here -- out for dinner with some sweet friends tonight.

    Meredith, congrats on your new nephew! Thanks for the reminder about baked apples. I really have to make them soon.

    We got to go visit our new little nephew yesterday at the beach! It was a wonderful trip and we made it back home early enough that we ate the orange chicken for dinner and saved money by not stopping to eat on the road. So tonight will be Shepherd's Pie and baked apples for the cool, rainy day :-)
