    ascherer - I am so happy to hear your mom is home! And it is a full time job to be a caretaker. She is very lucky to have you there to help her!

    observant - your chicken pizza recipe looks great!

    tabithaluvschris - I'll have to check out that youtube cook you mentioned. Thanks for the info. And yay for baked ziti! We are having the ravioli version of it tonight. Well - the kids are. I am having tuna on a salad. LOL Struggle....real.

    barbiedoll1967 - I cannot stop laughing at the suggestion that I made the cheese ravioli from scratch!!! You know me better than that by now! lol I am a big advocate of semi homemade cooking for those who barely have time to shower let alone make homemade pasta. :-) I am using the frozen celentano cheese ravioli that was BOGO at HT a month or so ago. It's really tasty.

    walkerwest - your casserole really does sound good - especially with the added mushrooms.

    Thanks to everyone for posting today. Great menus, as always!

    Ascherer, sending good thoughts for your and your Momma. I was so sorry to hear of her fall! If you need any tips from the crutches/walker/wheelchair side of things, don't hesitate. My first tip is to put a big soft towel, folded up, on the seat of the wheelchair to make it more comfy.

    Everyone's menus sound so good tonight! Walkerwest, I'm right there with you about trying to use what I buy and reduce waste. I'm not good at sticking to menus which makes it harder. Tablithaluvschris, yay for white pizza! Love it topped with prosciutto before I bake it. I'll have to have it soon.

    I'm scrambling for an idea for tonight. DW is trying to eat high protein but has had an awful upset stomach all day. I was going to have the leftover spaghetti with meat sauce, but I think it will just make her stomach worse. I don't know... eggs and toast for her and leftover spaghetti for me? We'll see.

    Tonight is easy chicken pot pie using a can of soup and frozen veggies. No time to make it from scratch this week. Momma is doing better. She came home from the hospital yesterday. I had no clue being a care taker was a full time job but between the wheelchair and walker, we are making it through. Thank you to who ever had this yesterday. You were my inspiration.

    Last night was baked ziti, can't stop watching jennycancook on you tube! Made her dinner rolls twice this weekend, we had family over and no leftovers for our boys... Tonight Chicken fried rice w/ marked down teriyaki marinated chicken breast (3) for $2.45 at Kroger last Friday. Tomorrow night, not sure yet... Friday though, will be homemade pizza dough for white pizza! YUM

    Walkerwest - your broccoli chicken spaghetti squash casserole sounds great. Would you share the recipe? Coupon4Me, lucky you that you get someone to cook for you! And Faye, the baked cheese ravioli sounds great. Do you make it from scratch if so would you share your recipe too? Tonight I'm having either leftover pasta salad (it makes alot) or a turkey hotdog.

    Oh, and DH is still on his low carb diet---so this way I get "pasta" without it actually being pasta & hopefully everyone is happy!

    ATurner got me thinking about using up leftover vegetables & making Broccoli Chicken Spaghetti Squash Casserole (I'm going to add mushrooms too). I'd planned to make 5 Ingredient White Chicken Chili but I think the sp sq broccoli chicken would use up more leftovers. My goal this year is to use up what I buy/cook instead of tossing so much out on trash day.
