    I'm grilling some chicken tonight and making some homemade salsa to put on top. I have a ton of tomatoes and jalapenos from the garden!

    I made freezer meals for the first few weeks of school. I ended up with 6 casseroles, a container of taco soup, four chicken packages ready to grill, two containers of twice baked potatoe, two containers of mashed potatoes, and two containers of ground meat ready for tacos.

    Didn't feel like making the baked mac & cheese so I had the breaded chicken tenders with a romaine salad and fat free jello!

    Sub have you ever made jello with ice cream in it?

    Grilled some chicken breasts (a local smoke house marinated them & individually wraps them.), mixed beans from garden, egg noodles with some olive oil & parm cheese & dessert yogurt blueberry lemon cake! Everything was so yummy!!!

    Had a lovely day w/ my Mom & just got back after being gone all day since 8:15am. We briefly visited my Dad (in the nursing home he's briefly in for a few days), ran an errand, did a little shopping, had a nice lunch @ Lazy Dog restaurant, & saw the movie, The Gift, which we liked a lot. Fun time!

    For lunch I tried the pesto chicken & hummus salad, which is the 2nd picture in below's link. It was good! Also had to try their cucumber, thyme lemonade, which was nice!
    My Mom had the chopped spinach, feta, & chicken salad, which was good too (3rd from bottom pic). We also split the Sicilian turkey meatballs. :D

    (I've also had their spicy Thai chicken salad before as well, which is the 2nd to the bottom & it's great as well.)

    After almost two weeks of constantly eating out we are finally back to home-cooked meals. Tonight was pork roast with creamed corn.

    Probably leftover chicken from last night (marinated in Italian dressing and baked bc it was too hot to grill), alfredo noodles, and a salad. Tomorrow I want to make grilled portobello burgers with roasted red peppers and grilled zucchini.

    Summer has really kicked in this week..took a 20 minute walk early this morning before it got too bad out..its almost 100 degrees again today so I am home, staying in the air conditioning and getting some work done on the computer..making some extra $$$:D

    So, with all this heat and humidity I am also having a cold dinner tonight...left over chicken cutlets from my moms house...making a sandwich (I like chicken cold) on a hard roll with a huge salad and iced tea!

    Sounds nice SubCT!

    My BF made us breakfast as he often has. He made eggs scrambled w/ onions, a bit of cheese, & mushrooms along with hash browns, & turkey bacon & sausages.

    Later will probably be a salad.

    Last night was my potstickers recipe. I haven't made them in months! So good! :)

    Your breakfast sounds good Ms. I! I had a mushroom & cheese omelet, home fries, bacon, whole wheat toast & orange juice.

    I'm still full. So I decided not to have a frittata for dinner after all....just a big salad with leftover brown rice.

    And I love potstickers, I haven't had those in months too:D

    We're away as well this weekend. We walked to a small pizza place about 10 minutes from the hotel--thin crust with pepperoni, sausage, ham, bacon, red onions, fresh tomatoes, basil, mild banana pappers and fresh mozzarella. Yummy!
