    Faye - It was pig BBQ tonight with DH's pig sauce. Awesome good! I want to do another baked ziti soon but lasagna sounds good also.

    Thanks for asking about my Daddy. He is much stronger after spending almost 3 weeks in a PT facility. He comes home on Thursday. Over the weekend, he acted and sounded more like my Daddy than he has in a long time.

    I am glad you had such a good time with all of your visitors. over the weekend. I was thinking about you and hoping it went well.

    While it wasn't very frugal, I am okay with it because we supported a local small business...Hubby & I tried out the new restaurant at 4042 called Simple Twist. We shared a Spinach Salad which was yummy! We also shared Lobster/Shrimp Mac N' cheese as well as a Burger w/ Portobellos and swiss! We had tonssss left over, probably a lunch and dinner for me and a dinner for hubby! Hmm...maybe it was frugal...we spent $35 including tip.

    ascherer - I love bbq chicken on buns with slaw. That may need to be on the menu next week with the lasagna we were talking about on Monday! How is your dad doing?

    I had a change of plans tonight. I needed to use up a ripe avocado so I had a veggie burger on tortilla with romaine lettuce, tomato, salsa, cheese and avocado. It was soooo yummy! Of course, anything with salsa and avocado is delicious to me. Hubby liked it as well. He had a spicy veggie chicken patty on his tortilla.

    Raesmom - I hope things went well with you dad at the dr today.

    Tonight we are having Teriyaki tofu and stir fry zucchini, squash, mushrooms and onions, side of brown rice. And we are still eating the watermelon and peaches so we'll behaving those as well.

    twinredheads - that sounds like the perfect meal for a group of teen boys!

    Hosting two 18 year old boys in town for the Tournament of Stars Baseball event. To that end, making a HUGE batch of meatballs with marinara in the Crockpot which will be served over spaghetti. Sides are garlic bread and green salad with produce from our garden.

    Tonight we're doing turkey meatball, artichoke, tomato and spinach skillet. Had pretty much everything on hand, and my DH likes it over those Minute Rice Jasmine cups... they're so simple to make! :-)

    Hey Ascherer~They have an appointment this am (thought it was yesterday). I will email you tonight with the details. Thanks for thinking of me :)

    Had enough baked ziti for one more day so we had that yesterday and tonight will be bbq chicken in the oven with mashed sweet potatoes (simply potato on sale last week at HT) and veggies on the side. Excited for the fruit sale at Aldi starting today. Cant wait to run over there on my lunch break and pick some up!!
