    I'll be going out for brunch, so I'll have a very light dinner or skip it altogether.

    Last night I made creamy pumpkin bisque. Tonight is roasted turkey breast with green bean casserole. I guess I'm getting a head start on Thanksgiving LOL

    Lunch with DH and DS (home from college) was baked chicken and homemade fettuccine Alfredo with pumpkin praline cake for dessert. No supper needed tonight.

    Oh it is soooo delicious. Here is the recipe:
    2 Tbsp olive oil, extra-virgin
    2 tsp fresh oregano, chopped (plus more for garnish)
    1 1/2 tsp balsamic vinegar
    1/2 tsp table salt, divided
    1/8 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
    1/8 tsp garlic powder
    1 medium uncooked eggplant(s), about 1 lb, sliced into twelve 1/2-in rounds
    3 spray(s) cooking spray
    6 Tbsp crumbled feta cheese
    Instructions

    Preheat grill to medium-high.

    Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine oil, oregano, vinegar, 1/4 teaspoon salt, red pepper flakes and garlic powder; set aside.

    Coat eggplant liberally with cooking spray; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Grill eggplant until lightly charred and tender, turning as needed, about 10 minutes.

    Remove eggplant to a serving platter; evenly spoon and spread oil mixture over eggplant. Sprinkle with feta; garnish with oregano (and red pepper flakes if desired). Yields 2 slices topped eggplant per serving.

    Whatever the 13 year old is cooking. I have no clue what he's planning, except that he's pulled out ground beef to thaw.

    My 5-1/2 hour drive home from visiting my daughter turned into a 7 hour marathon (fool accidents) and I didn't want to stop to eat. Dinner was about a pound of grapes, dried cranberries and sunflower seeds, coffee, vitamin water, and half a bag of chips :eek:. Dinner tonight: stir-fry of chicken, peppers and mushrooms.

    Stuffed shells with ricotta, basil, and three cheeses. Made my own marinara too! I normally have a tub of it in my fridge but I hadn't made my own in a while.

    If anyone has a decent meatloaf recipe, please be kind and toss it my way.

    I just eyeball the amounts but I use ground beef, 1 egg, a splash of milk, whole wheat bread crumbs (I heard you could use stove stop stuffing instead) and a little A-1 (or ketchup or BBQ sauce). I mix it all up and if it feels too dry I add a bit more milk or if it's too wet a bit more bread crumbs. It always comes out pretty good.

    The kids ate at church youth group, hubby is out of town, so I made a small portion, and my own version, of the Pioneer Woman's beef with snow peas, and couscous.
