    Thank you so much, ascherer, GJan1 and jdouglas13. Your sweet thoughts are very much appreciated.

    Coupons4me My thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

    Faye - My thoughts and prayer are with you also. The anniversaries can be rough.

  • GJan1 Jul 13, 6:43 p.m.

    Coupon4me - Praying for you and your family.
    Faye - Praying for you too. You would have liked my Mom. She was super frugal. I wish I had gotten in to couponing seriously while she was alive. She would have loved it. She would have loved you.

    Coupons4me, my DW and I have been the grateful recipients of many kind thoughts and prayers from the good folks here on the blog. Please know we are sending you the same, and hope you receive some comfort from it and that your pain is eased.

    Faye, I didn't know that tomorrow was your Mom's anniversary. Sending you a hug. I lost both parents within 13 months of each other a little over a year ago, and I think of them all the time too.

    Dinner... well, I'm thinking a creamy pasta concoction with asparagus, crispy prosciutto, and parm, with the fervent hope that HT has their reggiano parm sale SOOOOON! I'm starting to get panicky that my stash is running out! Last night was a Toad in the Hole - sort of a Dutch baby pancake with breakfast sausage baked into it.

    coupon4me - and congrats on the new car!

    coupon4me - I am so sorry your family is going through a rough time. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. If there is any way I can help, send me an e-mail at faye@smartspendingresourcescom. My mom died on July 14 eight years ago so I think about her a lot this time of year (well, every day, honestly). She always used to say, "This, too, shall pass." I hope that is the case for your family and the pain you are experiencing right now. Sending you a big hug.

    It's been a long few weeks. My family is in desperate need of prayers. Sorry if this offends anyone but have often seen it asked on here. Hurting so much - asking for prayers and thoughts from any and all.

    Using this meal posting as a distraction from the blah!!!

    Monday - we did a make shift taco/ burrito night from leftover chicken. Served with brown rice, beans, cheese and avocado and of course hot peppers on mine.
    Tuesday - I bought a new car so it was a Panera night. I just love their Asian Sesame Chicken salad!
    Wednesday- I had a networking event so I had apps for dinner
    Thursday - I brought my lunch to work today but when I went out I saw rise was giving away chicken sandwiches! So I'll have that for dinner and I'll make my boys chicken nuggets with a side of pasta and green beans.

    I have no idea what's for dinner! I'm on the way to Elizabeth City with my honey. He has to go for work so I tagged along and will work from the hotel. Hoping to find some good seafood. Any suggestions?
    Barbiedoll - stay cool!

    I have to go home and mow grass tonight (boy is it going to be hot) so I may not eat supper. Have a great Thursday everyone.
