    All the talk about spaghetti and meatballs sounded so good, we're having... spaghetti and meatballs! I had the meatballs in the freezer made from chuck roast on sale a while back, cooked and all ready to go. Canned tomatoes for the sauce were BOGO, and the Barilla was on sale at Kroger for $1.

    Salad on the side as well as garlic toasts which I make from a baguette sliced very thin, and topped with a butter, garlic, parm, herb mixture, and baked until brown. It can make a very little bit of bread go quite a long way. Lowes often has their french bread on sale BOGO, and I usually buy a few for the freezer to turn into garlic toast, french toast, bread crumbs, etc. It's a nice backup when I don't feel like making bread.

    Here you go wildfrenchrose: 1 can black beans, 1 can pinto beans, 1 can chicken broth, 1 can cream of chicken soup, 1 can green enchilada sauce, 1 can of corn, 1 can diced tomatoes, 2 can chicken breast. Throw it all in the crock pot for a few hours and dinner is served!! :)

    Also having meatballs and spaghetti. Just using the spaghetti squash that has been part of a decoration on my table. Time for something more springy.

    Beef stew using London broil bought on sale a few weeks ago at FL, cheap potatoes/carrots from Aldi. Will make cornbread if I get the time to go to the store for milk.

    Toasted Sesame Chicken with Garlic & Ginger over fetticini. Boneless skinless chicken breasts picked up yesterday at HT for $1.99/lb, Campbells Skillet Sauce gotten free I think during Super Doubles at HT, free pasta from somewhere at some point....

    Crockpot meatballs (bought months ago at HT during super doubles) with marinara sauce. Hubby and one daughter will have it with angel hair, the other on a hoagie as a meatball sub. Will probably just serve with carrots or green peppers.
