    Wow, lots of delicious dinners on the menu for tonight!

    Faye, welcome back! Glad your ride home went well for your Dad. Your chicken fettuccine alfredo sounds like comfort food at its best. Enjoy!

    Raesmom, how is your Dad doing? I promise not to make any cheesecakes in the near future. ;) Great job, girl!

    Nakabi, that is so cool about the saffron. And you got the bonus of a new friend in the deal too.

    I think the plan for dinner tonight was a shrimp Cobb salad. If so, I need to get moving to make the hard boiled eggs and clean/cook the shrimp so everything is chilled in time.

    Oh I also picked up a green pepper. Tonight I may make a peach topping to put over ice cream for dessert.

    Faye I stopped my favorite produce stand 2 days in a row! Sunday I got cantelope and sweet corn. Yesterday I picked up some peaches and tomatoes.

    carelesswhisper - your dinner sounds superb. I may be serving that later in the week. I have to get to a grocery store/farmers market first!

    jtlnsw~sweets arent really my thing......I have a bad addiction to chips!!! Although, if jdouglas made another chessecake.....that I would cave in for LOL

    Faye, glad to hear your Dad is doing great! That ride isn't exactly around the corner. Good to be back home with everyone in tow.
    That pasta sounds really good. for us, think I'll dump one of those slow cooker packets in with some chicken and steam rice, along with some salad.
    Haha....Raesmom, I would definitely cave with those cinnamon rolls.

    Glad the trip went well for you, your family and especially your dad!! I know the feeling of being gone and finally getting back home to your OWN stuff!!! Enjoy dinner tonight, it will probably taste like the best meal ever LOL

    Tonight will be baked pork chops in brown gravy, with mashed potatoes and veggies on the side. Maybe some pillsbury cinnamon rolls for dessert for Rae and dessert will be a bottle of water after my T-25 workout LOL

    Faye-glad everything is going better with your dad!!! Enjoy your pasta tonight :)
    jdouglas-re: you requestion from yesterday about the saffron. I met a Moroccan lady at the farmers market and we ended up talking about the saffron and how expensive it is. Her family in Morocco ships it to her since it's much cheaper there. She offered to sell me some and that's how I got the 5 pounds.
    Tonight we are having whole grilled tilapia, Israeli couscous, broccoli, green beans,and yeast rolls. Dessert will be the last of the blackberry and peach cobbler I made using blackberries the kids picked over the weekend :)
