    Chipper, we love the scampi (but do like to add extra lemon). I like the Marsala too. That sauce is good over mashed potatoes too! I am going to try the chipoltle this week. But they were free! And they are pretty good!!!

    This week we are full of baseball games so I planned ahead...dinners consist of your choice of turkey breast (cooked in crockpot yesterday and bought on sale at target many moons ago), grilled chicken sandwiches (grilled yesterday and bought a LF this week), salad with grilled chicken or hotdogs (cook when you want it) bought on sale at HT. There ya go-grab a side and we're done! Feels good to have cooked so much yesterday that the meals for the week are easy.

    chipper4800 - We (DH & 2 teen boys) like the Thai Green Curry Campbell's skillet sauce added to stir fried sliced chicken then served over jasmine rice. We did not like the Marsala nearly as much but thought it was OK with lots of extra mushrooms.

    chipper - I didn't really care for the Marsala Campbell's Skillet sauce, but the kids and hubby thought it was good.

    I haven't tried the campbell's skillet creations. I've got scampi down as one to try, do you recommend any other flavors? We are having leftover BBQ, red slaw, homemade ice cream.

    We went to the beach this weekend and picked up some fresh shrimp. My husband made some scampi last night with a campbell's skillet creation I got free from HT a few weeks ago. He served over some couscous that we got free at HT too. Was amazing.

    Tonight he is going to make some low mein type dish, with shrimp and pasta (free from HT last SD) and teriyaki (free from previous HT).

    Faye, I made the blueberry cheesecake from the WRAL recipes. It is pretty fabulous. My husband LOVED it! I don't know what my neighbor does to her hot cabbage/spicy slaw but WOW! It's amazing!

    Mini turkey meatloaves with Butterball ground turkey bought at Carlie C's last week with coupon. I'm going to serve it with leftover potato salad and corn on the cob.

  • ncsugirlie May 28, 2013

    We are having boneless ribs on the grill and fresh corn on the cob, which I will also put on the grill. Not sure what else we may have to go with it yet.

    Did I hear cheesecake???? :-) The hot cabbage sounds interesting, haylilliza. We had regular ole' cole slaw on our dogs last night.
