    We had tacos with the trimmings, mixture of quinoa, black rice and wild rice mixture, and corn on the cob.

    Faye - Happy Birthday wishes to your daughter!!! My family would give all thumbs up to the oreo ice cream cake :)

    JDouglas13 - Eggplant parm is a treat, indeed. Buon appetito!

    ILiveFancy - Moe's serves such large portions - makes for happy taste buds the next day :)

    Last night's supper was super easy: teriyaki beef and broccoli (finished off our first of three $2.99/lb sirloin roasts from Lowe's Foods and the teriyaki broccoli was frozen and free with coupon from HT) over Success rice. Tonight is veggie night: crock pot of pintos ($.59 bag with coupon from Kroger), sauteed summer squash, homemade refrigerator kraut, cucumber-cauliflower-carrot crudites with Meze 3-pepper salsa dip ($.50 at Target with coupons and ibotta), hush puppies leftover from a family bbq. Dessert is Betty Crocker peanut butter cookies (a past HT freebie) with whole peanuts added to batter -- we enjoy the extra crunch :)

    May everyone's Tuesday end well!

    Last night I went to Moe's for a Joey that I couldn't finish.. Tonight will be grilled chicken drumsticks, broccoli, and brown rice. Nothing spectacular. -_-

    Good dinners everyone!

    Raesmom - I love a tomato, onion and cucumber salad. So refreshing and cool in the summer.

    Tonight we are taking my oldest out for her birthday dinner. Not sure where we are going yet because she hasn't decided. I guess it will be a surprise for all of us. LOL We are having an Oreo ice cream cake for dessert. Yum. :-)

    Last night ended up being Chick-fil-A :-) We had a couple free meal coupons that expire in a month so we used those and got dinner completely free! After spending a couple hours at the laundromat that was our reward. Haha. The thermostat in there said it was 96 degrees :-/ All those dryers add up.

    I think tonight will be burgers on the grill. We have lettuce, onions, and cheese to go on them. Sides will either be leftover baked potatoes or chips and dip. Fresh watermelon and grapes plus side salads as well.

    I'm still enjoying my tomato, onion and cucumber salad (all to myself lol) so I'm gonna make some more of that for me with a salad again. Gonna throw an egg in there for protein :)

    Family is gonna have gourmet buffet. Options include spaghetti and meatballs (HT meal deal), rice and lemon chicken from last night and mashed potatoes with gravy and pork chops. Have a lot of running around to do tomorrow so tomorrow will be quick and easy.....TACOS!!!!

    Last night I was not in much of a cooking mood, so we had breakfast for dinner: tomato-chive-cheese omelets with breakfast sausage and rye toast.

    Tonight I'm making eggplant parm and spaghetti with Italian sausage. I love eggplant parm, so it's a real treat for me.

    What's on your menu tonight??
