    Raesmom, of course for strawberry shortcake! :)

    Faye, the squash saute was soooooo good. And, only a little burnt -- my new way of cooking everything. DW looked at it very suspiciously and asked what it was LOL.

    Thanks for that Ascherer. My actual bday is next Wednesday and since DH won't be here he is making it up to me this weekend and next weekend as well. I may check them out either way....I love Italian and pasta :)

    coupon4me - You could lay it all out buffet style and tell them it's Golden Corral night. You'll need to find a soft serve ice cream machine to really pull it off though. :-)

    Gator Girll - Have fun at the beach! It will be a nice way to relax before the surgery.

    Raesmom1612 - I bet you could add the flax seed to your meatballs and nobody would notice.

    Jdouglas - how did the squash saute turn out? I really need to make that soon.

    I made my eggs and turkey bacon into a bacon, egg and cheese biscuit sandwich and it was sooooo good. Now that I can eat again, I have taken a few too many liberties with my diet lately. Guess I'd better buckle down again so I can fit into my Southerm Women's Show dresses this weekend. LOL

    Raesmom - If you are in Myrtle Beach on your birthday, Angelo's Steak and Pasta will give you a free birthday steak. Rae will love their Italian buffet. You will love everything on their menu.

    Gator Girll - Enjoy your weekend at the beach. Let me know when you have the surgery and I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers.

    Very clever coupons4me! I buy the Spectrum brand of ground flaxseed from HT and have some here. I am going to try your recipe....but I'm also curious to see if I can add some in my meatballs next time I make them???!!! Thanks for the idea!!

    Enjoy the beach gator girll! We will be celebrating my birthday at myrtle Beach next weekend and I just can't wait!!

    Jdouglas if I can hunt down some heavy or whipping cream does that mean I get to have some strawberry shortcake?? :) Driscolls sent me a .50/1 q for my bday so I'll be using that at HT this week to get some extra tasty strawberries (extra tasty bc they will only be .25!!)

    Gator Girll, enjoy your long weekend at the beach! That was very sweet of your DH to suggest it.

    I got some of the HT strawberries this afternoon with the thought of strawberry shortcake for dessert, but they didn't have a single container of heavy or whipping cream in the store. I use cream to make the shortcake as well as for whipped cream on top, so I guess we'll have berries with Magnum bars? I don't know. LOL

    Last night we ended up having shrimp over Caesar salad, so tonight we're having the steak on the grill, baked potatoes, and Faye's squash saute pictured on the WFD page because I've been craving it for a week. :)

    Raesmom - Monday I said I made chicken tenders with flax seed and you asked how.... I actually grind it up and mix it right with the breadcrumbs. Dip it in the egg and it all sticks right on. My kiddos eat it fine and don't even think about it, a good way to get some omega 3 in without the fish...

    Last night we did steak fajitas - of course all ingredients on sale!

    Tonight will be leftover/clean out the fridge kind of night. There is a lot! Some pizza, mac and cheese, green beans chicken.....hmmm how I can make off this look like it is supposed to go together :-)

  • Gator Girll Apr 20, 2016

    Leftover baked chicken, baked sweet potato, and salad tonight. We're heading to our beach place tomorrow for a long weekend so I'm anticipating some seafood in the near future! This is the last time we'll get there before my upcoming surgery so I'm going to make the best of it. Next week I'll be cooking and freezing stuff for dinners my DH might be able to warm up during my recovery. I ❤️ my hubby for suggesting we get away and for taking off work to do it!

    Tonight is leftover chicken spaghetti at our house. Going to go out this afternoon to get some fruits and will have some on the side since I didn't get to put too many veggies in the pasta sauce yesterday.

    Also I got my muffin tin and cake pan back from the storage so Rae and I will be in the kitchen baking up something....anything today. She did say that she wanted me to help her make MY birthday cake next week lol. I thought it was cute, but I told her that she had to get daddy to help her.....lets see how that goes hahahahaha. I won't hold my breath for a homemade cake. Maybe an ice cream cake from the food lion freezer lol

    Tonight we are having shrimp alfredo. The pasta was free from a past HT SD. The sauce was on sale with a coupon at HT a while back. The shrimp was from the last B2G3 sale at HT. Sides include the leftover vegetable tian from Sunday night, more fresh cantaloupe from the HT sale last week, and a side salad.
