    jdouglas- plenty to go around! I'm a bit embarrassed, but I think with all this raw food stuff in our house these last few weeks, he's gone off the beef deep end, and bought 2 lol! :-) But, I did make a ranch dressing tonight that had no dairy, and used cashews... and he didn't know it, and loved it- YAY! Here's the recipe from a really great site I found if any of you are interested... she has fantastic recipes!

    Jdouglas - that's too funny! Sorry your dinner invite got lost in the chaos of our evening. Between middle school orientation and high school marching band practice, we barely had a sit down dinner. The corn will have to wait until tomorrow night.

    RFB - those banana pancaked sound awesome!

    RFB, thanks for your kind words about my poor DW.

    Since it doesn't look like I've wrangled an invite from Faye, maybe your DH will share his tri-tip with me? Happykattery's chicken piccata sounds awfully good too.

    Nakabi- mmm... pho is sounding delicious about now!

    Jdouglas- I'm so sorry on your DW's dental stuff :-(

    And wow, everyone's meals sounds so good, happykattery- chicken picatta is the best! And Ckdavismk1- that sounds like a fun night out... with no dishes :-)

    Tonight, DH is having leftover tri-tip from TJ, along with a baked potato and some kind of veggie. And I think I'll do more of that spicy beet and red cabbage salad (seriously one of the best recipes I've ever created... and yes, it is raw food!) And snacking on a few leftover truffles, plus I have some banana pancakes in the dehydrator right now for class, and the house is smelling amazing! Love all these no guilt treats :-)

    Chicken piccata

    Faye, what time are you serving? ;) Yum

    Raesmom, glad I could help LOL!

    And...... we are back to a near liquid diet again for my poor DW. Geez, will this ever end? Now they're talking about possible surgery. Poor thing has never had surgery and she's really scared to death. (My personal feeling about surgery is just knock me out cold, give me lots of drugs after, and you can do whatever you want - but I've had at least 10, so they don't scare me anymore.) I think homemade cream of broccoli soup and scrambled eggs are on the menu for tonight.

    Spaghetti, salad, and garlic bread is what's for dinner, as we have been invited to a friend's home!! YAY!!!

    jdouglas~you inspired me with your dinner last night so tonight we are having baked chicken with mashed potatoes green beans, biscuits and gravy. Comfort food :)

    Last night was fun, we gave the boys a limit of $25 each on their D&B cards and Rae ran her little tail off lol We were at D&B during the storm so we missed the whole thing.
