    I've had a certain teenager who has had nothing but complaints about the menus lately, so this week has been declared:

    MOM'S WEEK OFF

    That's right-kitchen is closed. Mom will shop, when given a list, and provided the items on that list fall into the budget and into our healthy eating guidelines (loosely). But otherwise, Mom is on cooking vacation this week.

    Tonight, my lovely daughter prepared chef's salads. They were good. She did not realize they were quite so labor intensive, but she made it through. I believe tomorrow involves nachos of some kind.

    I'm trying to avoid groceries since we will be out of town for several days, so we're doing quesadillas with deli chicken so there is minimal cooking involved.

    Trying to eat light tonight. Zucchini noodles with pesto sauce. If I'm really starving i'll have some chicken with it. We won't be having Thanksgiving dinner until 5pm tomorrow so I'll have a small brunch type meal late morning then dig into the feast!! :D

    My favorite is when Joey from Friends puts on Phoebe's maternity pants & calls them his "Thanksgiving pants." We watched the middle & the mom calls them her "holiday pants"...LOL!!!

    I'm thinking cheese enchiladas, corn on the cob, and rice. However, it's almost like anytime I cook something more than a casserole these days DH always has to work late. So, I'm wondering if I should chance it and jinx myself, lol.

    Some mac & cheese & a tad of leftover rotisserie chicken, that's it. I had a good-sized plateful today for lunch at a Brazilian Steakhouse.

    Yum, Ms. I!

    Sweets and I went to friends' house for NYE. She and I spent the afternoon making creole food for dinner (red beans and rice, jumbalaya, crab cakes, bread pudding, and some kind of pecan cake). I've never had Creole and don't know how it is supposed taste, but I thought we made a pretty tasty dinner. Today I am making chicken and dumplings soup.
