    I am fairly certain we will be eating tonight but I am not sure what yet. :-) Last night it was chicken salad on croissants with slaw. We'll see what my dad is in the mood for tonight.

    He is doing great on post-op Day 3. It is amazing to me how mobile he is and how little pain he is in compared to pre-surgery. I am so incredibly thankful.

    raesmom1612 - I am so excited for Rae - and you! Kindergarten is such a big girl step. I know she will love it! Bring'll need them. :-)

    aerogirl2084 - your produce box sounds excellent! I'd join you if I could.

    ybaverage2003 - White pizza sounds so good! It is now on my menu for some time this weekend....maybe even tonight. lol

    coupon4me - I hope you are feeling better today! Enjoy your class at the gym.

    Awww enjoy the bittersweet moment of the first day of Kindergarten- raesmom. It truly is bittersweet, no other way to describe it.

    We did McDonald's last night as I wasn't feeling all that well. I'm on my own tonight so thinking it will. We take out after a gym class.

    Yay it's almost the weekend!!!

    HT has dough balls 10/$10. Hoping they are still frozen, so I can put some in freezer for future pizza nights. Plan on using one to make a white pizza (ricotta & mozzerella) with pancetta, arugala and toasted pine nuts. :)

    raesmom1612 I can't believe Rae is going to kindergarten on Monday. I'm sure she is so excited.
    Aerogirl2084 everything sounds delicious. I'm sure it will all be delicious.
    I'm not sure what I'm having. I mowed last night and need to do the trimwork tonight so it may be leftover chicken or a sandwich.

    I'm eating today, RaesMom! :) Although we'll see how long it takes to shuck, peel, slice and cook everything. We forgot to "skip" our produce box this week, so guess what I have waiting for me at home? Four ears of corn, four sweet potatoes, two red peppers, peaches, plums, apples, grape tomatoes and a cantaloupe. I'm thrilled, but I'm also home by myself for awhile, so it's way more than I can eat--I brought some things in to work, but my plan is to roast off the 'taters, peppers & corn, and make a fruit salad with the fruit that's left. Hopefully it all turns out okay--if anyone is hungry, I'll have plenty to share!

    Last night was chili, tonight I have Zumba so dinner will be leftover chili. Rae has been really good at camp this week so I promised we can make "cakes" and decorate them "pretty" we may do that tomorrow after work to celebrate our last weekend of summer break....Kindergarten on Monday!!!!!! aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhh where did my baby go????
