    Dinner tonight turned out being sonic corn dogs and some chips we had at home!

    Meredith, hope your washer and dryer come soon! A month going to the laundromat is a long time!

    Last night we had the long-awaited corn chowder. It was really good. Tonight is going to be either spaghetti with meat sauce with an assortment of hidden veg mixed in or M&C with broccoli on the side. What I'd really like is for someone else to cook dinner so I can just sit down and eat it. :)

    Grilled bourbon glazed salmon, lemon noodles and corn on the cob.

    meredith88 - congrats on the upcoming breakup! lol And you may want to give the Sonic a call to make sure they are participating. Not all of them take part in these corporate promos.

    raesmom1612 - What an interesting conversation about the baby chicken. Rae is a hoot! that's great news on the yogurt dressing chicken. The dressing really does sound good. Your lunch sounds very healthy! I'm having and egg as well for lunch. 1 egg overlight with sauteed fresh spinach on a piece of 50 calorie 100% whole wheat toast and a sprinkle of 2% shredded Mexican cheese. No butter needed because the slightly runny yolk moistens the bread nicely. I'll have a cup of Trader Joe's organic tomato soup for snack around 3.

    The chicken last night as a hit Faye. We know I'm not a fan of it but I had a small drumstick & it was really good. It marinated in the dressing overnight. I think I will keep that recipe for the dressing & use it more often.

    I have a super quiet house now & time to do something for me lol so im actually going to have lunch today! Im thinking a salad with some tuna (no mayo) on top with eggs, mushrooms, banana peppers & a small bit of shredded cheese.

    I put the whole baby chicken in the crock pot this am with mccormicks rotisserie seasoning as I was getting Rae ready for school. I showed it to her as I was rinsing it off & she says "mom what is that" I said "its a baby chicken" she says "where is the head" I said "it came off bc we don't eat the head", she says "well where is his family" I said "probably in someone elses freezer, still at the grocery store or on someone elses dinner table" her resposnse........"that's so cool im gonna eat a baby chicken today!! Gotta love the kids!!

    Tonight's dinner will be 50 cent corn dogs at Sonic. They just opened the new Smithfield location so we are going there before we head to Lowes to finally buy a washer and dryer :-) Only another month or so until we can officially break up with the laundromat! Not that I'm counting.... ;)
