    It sounds really good, Juanita. Glad Rae gobbled it up!

    Lol gotta love tuna sandwiches, I applaud her effort.

    The taco bake was pretty tasty! Rae hasn't been eating well(going through that phase, how fun) but she ate every bit of 2 servings! I'm adding this to our regular menu rotation.

    Keep us posted on your mom :)

    Oh no, jdouglas. I am so very sorry about your mom. You are all in my thoughts.

    Thanks for your prayers, Juanita. Much needed and much appreciated.

    My DW is awesome and has offered repeatedly to cook for us, even though boiling water is a challenge. She makes a great tuna sandwich :)

    Your taco bake sounds interesting. Let us know how it turns out.

    Im sorry to hear about your mom jdouglas, and your DW too, I give you credit for even trying to cook! I don't think I would be able to knowing my mom is so far and that ill. I pray for the best.

    Im going to try a "taco bake" instead. Sorta like a taco lasgne, layering the tortillas, then beans, then meat, then salsa, then sour cream, then tortillas, then cheese. Maybe garnish with extra sour cream, corn, and onions. We will see how it goes.....

    Nuked sweet potatoes, baked chicken legs, fresh green beans, and stawberries with whipped cream.

    My Mom took a serious turn for the worse just after I got back (of course), and my mind hasn't been on cooking. My poor DW has had either no dinner or seriously burnt dinner for the last five nights, so I'm hoping to make up for it with something I can't screw up too much! :p

    I even made some deviled eggs like one of those cool housewives from the 50's actually serving an appetizer, but they were really intended for something else that never got made, and I can't remember what, so I've gotta use them up. :)

    Tortilla Bean Stack: tortillas layered with black beans mixed with salsa, shredded cheese - bake. Serve with lettuce, tomato, sour cream, salsa.

    I hope your day gets better. :-) At least you have yummy chili waiting for you when you get home.

    kat - I am glad you are not slow cooking a vegetarian today! I was wondering what word was missing when I first read over your meal for tonight. lol
