    Try disconnecting the tank form the grill then re-attaching - there may just be trash in/around the connection or in the fuel line that will be dislodged . Spiders love things with fuel lines ( a friend bought 3 weed-eaters in 2 years before a repairman told him the problem - took 5 minutes and cost $2 !).

    Thanks for sharing everyone. The stuffed peppers and bbq chicken sounds delicious. It's been too long since I have made stuffed peppers. Need to put that on a future menu.

    I totally changed up our dinner. I realized that we had no eggs this afternoon so no frittata today. I thought we had another dozen in one of the fridge drawers - apparently not. lol

    Instead we had parmesan and herb chicken breast cutlets (Tyson on sale bogo with coupon recently), leftover pasta from last night in Trader Joe's organic tomato soup, corn on the cob from the local farm stand and watermelon from the local farm stand.

    Tonight we are having stuffed peppers. The green bell peppers are from Aldi's sale this week. They will be filled with rice and ground beef mixed with corn, tomatoes, mushrooms and cheese. We'll have pinto beans and canned pineapple to go with it.

    And since I came up with a new menu planning system over the weekend, I already know what we're having all week :) I think I finally have a system that works so we can menu plan every week!

    BBQ chicken in the slow-cooker served on hamburger buns with a sides of corn on the cob and watermelon.

    So many potential invites to choose from and they all sound good! :)

    Half the fun of a trip to NYC is the amazing food, so we'll have to save some of the budget for that. I can think of a dozen places just off the top of my head on only one cup of coffee.

    Dinner tonight is a mystery, but may involve a salad with romaine, tomatoes, gorgonzola and a vinaigrette of some kind. That's all I have so far. Still need to figure out what's wrong with the grill and who can fix it.

    Faye- anything you'd like! lol! And I had my concerns on a not chicken (I used sunflower seeds!) but it was surprisingly good, and even DH ate the whole thing :-)

    Great meals tonight everyone!

    RFB - do you think you could bring along some of the "dilled not chicken salad with cranberries wrapped in romaine" for our blog outing to NYC?? lol

    Chicken curry, saag paneer, basmati rice, and garlic naan using all ingredients in the freezer or pantry.

    Spagetthi and meatballs with a side salad

    I'm thinking ground beef tacos tonight with all the fixings.
