    JDouglas - Open Mic is exactly what it says. Someone sets up a mic and handles the sign up sheet. Then people get 5 to 10 minutes at the mic. The one we go to is 99% music but I have heard of ones that have are for poets or comedians. Some of it is really good and sometimes it isn't but it gives performers time behind a mic with a friendly crowd.

    Tonight is actually up in the air now. I am teaching a class and will be gone so I think the rest of the gang will be having leftovers and the sweet potatoes I am about to put in the oven.

    raesmom1612 - I hope Rae is all better now! Sounds like you had a really nice day yesterday.

    Jdouglas - tonight looks like great grilling weather.

    barbiedoll1967 - I found a great recipe today that I am hoping to make later tonight for the next few days of breakfast or lunch. It's basically a mini omelet in muffin tins and would be great for you to freeze and take out on mowing nights when you don't have time to cook. Here's the recipe:

    I'm with you Raesmom. I love fall! I would love to use my crock pot during the week but I'm gone for almost 12 hours a day and it worries me to leave it that long. But I plan on using it on the weekends. Your bbq chicken sounds so good.

    I was home with Rae yesterday since she wasn't feeling too well. She had been sick over the weekend and it carried over to Monday. since she had a fever she had to stay home yesterday. Of course by yesterday she was all free and clear of said fever lol. We took Adriana to school and Rae and I hung out all day. we got her room together, we had lunch, we watched tv and played a few games on the tablet. a bit of mommy time/attention always makes them feel better. With all that said since we were home I did bbq chicken in the crock pot yesterday on buns with potato salad, greens and baked beans and there is enough for leftovers tonight. I'm so excited for the fall season to pull out the crock pots! I now have two thanks to an awesome smart shopper friend ;) so I can use them almost on a daily basis. the countdown to the cool weather begins!!!

    Barbiedoll, I'm glad you will get to eat tonight. Too many nights with no dinner after doing the lawn.

    Ascherer, open mic?

    I'm wondering if I should cook something on the grill tonight since it looks like it will be hot. I finally finished the last of the leftovers last night. Much as I like a night off from cooking, I really am not a big fan of leftover food, at least when I make it for myself. I guess I don't fuss with it like I would if it were for my DW.

    BarbieDoll - you and that yard. Bless you.

    Tonight is meatloaf if DH gets home from my FIL's house at a decent hour. DH is working on FIL's laptop. If not, cheese and Ritz it will be. Open Mic starts around 8:45 and I will be there if I'm not asleep.

    Happy Wednesday everyone.

    I think tonight will be eggs for dinner. I probably won't have time to cook anything (need to do the yard trimwork).
