    meredith88 - Congrats on closing on the house!! I really feel for you and your hubby. You are soooo close. I hope you find the eggrolls. Or at least something that tastes good after such a long few days.....and weeks. Wishing you a home cooked meal in your new home very soon. :-)

    We moved in with family over the weekend and finally got to close on our house today so we are moving again :-/ So dinners have been freezer finds the past few nights. Pizza one night, chicken nuggets another, and taquitos last night. I'm hoping tonight will be egg rolls but I haven't been able to find them in the deep freezer the last two nights. Moving all of our food twice has definitely been one of the worst parts of moving twice in five days! I'm so ready to get into our new house and get our pots and pans unpacked so I can cook a real meal again! All this junk food has us feeling sluggish plus the heat and moving on top of that. I want a vacation :-)

    B-Ran - thanks! 2 people on the FB page also recommended them. I read a couple questionable reviews on yelp though so I was not sure. Have you been to Waraji lately? It's been many years since I was there but the reviews are very good. But - no BOGO.

    Faye -- go to Tasu at Brier Creek (its mear the Earth Fare.)

    Unless it has changed, the rolls are B1G1 and its super delicious!

    ASCHERER- Do you still make the "egg to go " things in the muffin tins for your DH ??
    I made something similar and added sweet potatoes , tomatoes , zucchini and squash - they were really good ! Especially the ones with mashed sweet potatoes . Hint :: If the tomatoes are juicy reduce the other liquids or drain the tomatoes before adding .

    TONIGHT - Slow cooker sausage with taters and onions ; greens beans .
    Dessert : Amazing chocolate mousse made by my Amazing DH
    This is the first time we have had the sausages - I hope I am doing it right. I precooked them slightly yesterday .

    Lindabates we are dinner twins tonight (a little lol). Tonight we are also having pork chops in the oven with mashed potatoes and veggies. For dessert, German chocolate cake made by Rae and her friend yesterday......mmmmmmm good!!!!!!

    Tomorrow is my last day in the office so I think I'm going to do what Ascherer did and put something in the crock pot tonight (after the pork chops) and have dinner on the counter and done by the time we get home.

    Suggestions needed! I am looking for a great sushi restaurant near Brier Creek or Crabtree areas. Any recommendations?

    Tonight we are having baked pork chops, green beans with potatoes, three cheese drop biscuits and maybe brownies.

    Tonight we are having Chicken Parmesan on spaghetti with a side salad.

    ascherer - I bet your house smelled wonderful this morning!

    Tonight is a pot roast cooked in the crock pot late last night. While I reheat it in the crock pot tonight, I will cook the potatoes and carrots with it.
