    I only had to feed myself tonight so I went simple with a salad. Spinach, sweet bell peppers, and tomatoes all from a sale at Aldi a few weeks ago. Topped with croutons and Newman's Own Dressing from HT triples last week. A nice cold supper on a hot day!

    Tacos, as requested by my 16 year old. Haven't had it in a while. Salsa was free, taco seasoning very cheap at FL a month or so back, some of the cheap shredded cheese that's been about over the past few months, ground beef from a sale at ... FL? IDK, I take stuff out of the trays and bag it to reduce freezer burn.

    We had spaghetti and meatballs the past two nights, and much as I love it, I am soooo over it. Thankfully, no more leftovers.

    Tonight we are either having grilled boneless chicken breasts (Lowes' sale last week) marinated in garlic, lemon, EVOO and caesar salad, or tuna and pasta shells salad (mayo/sourcream based) with green pepper, radishes, green olives, celery, red onion.

    I'm hoping we can cook out! I'm tired of so many rainy afternoons!

    Faye, I have to say, i'm so bummed about the siser shubert rolls-i missed out at the HT sale since they were out of stock-i did get a rain check but the q's i had to make it a great deal have all expired. We LOVE those rolls!

    Change of menu again tonight. I cooked up the whole value pack of boneless chicken breast yesterday in the slow cooker with Italian dressing. We had about 1/2 last night with the pasta and tonight we are having the rest of the chicken in chicken salad sandwiches on Sister Shuberts rolls, per the request of my oldest. We'll have pasta salad and steamed carrots as well.

    Thanks for sharing everyone!
