    Last night ended up being Red Hot & Blue. My mom was on her own for dinner too so we decided to go together. My birthday coupon made my meal free so I just paid $2 for my drink and then left a nice tip.

    I had my "final" (I hope!) jaw surgery this morning. Hopefully I'll be able to eat again by supper time. I'm on my own for food again so we'll see which coupon I use for free food tonight :-) My birthday has lined up well with all these dinners on my own!

    TheRealNCYankee - that is seriously the best cereal ever. Except when it tears off that layer of skin from the roof of your mouth. Hate that part. I do love PB Capn Crunch, though!

    jdouglas13 - so good to know about the pickle juice secret. Can't wait to try it on my next pasta salad. And don't you mean Krispy Kreme for dinner with a possible tuna sandwich on the side. lol

    Coupon4me, I like your easy dinner tonight! Pickle juice is used in many summer salad recipes. My Mom's secret ingredient in mayo-based salads was the juice from the jar of stuffed green olives.

    The tortellini antipasto salad last night was disappointing. Not sure why, but we didn't save the leftovers and agreed not to have it again. I could go for a nice easy dinner tonight as well. Maybe tuna sandwiches with Krispy Kreme for dessert?

    The oven repair guy is supposed to be here this afternoon. The Princess is going to go ballistic. She doesn't like strangers in the house, especially men. Let's see if he actually brings the right parts and isn't too afraid of/distracted by the screeching and barking of The Princess to actually install them correctly! :p

    Happy Wednesday! LOL

    A bowl of Peanut Butter Captain Crunch after softball.

    coupon4me - that works, too! I have never tried it with pickle juice, but I do love pickles.

    Tonight we are having chicken tacos with all the toppings, rice and peaches.
