Forecast for today...rain...rain and even more rain through out the day so I am just going to stay in and have some comfort food----------baked mac & cheese with chicken tenders
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.
Chicken noodle soup. School just started and I have already missed days for strep throat. Ugh!
Didn't feel like making the baked mac & cheese so I had the breaded chicken tenders with a romaine salad and fat free jello!
I have some Jell-O in my cupboard. I make it every so often...sounds good again!

I know, I love it, with a dallop of cool whip free is awesome!!!
Made a broccoli & cheese quiche for dinner...having more jello too!
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!!!

I'm home along tonight so my sweet parents invited me over we are having Alaskan crab legs and crab cakes from the local fish market who brings in the freshest catch from Fulton market in NYC. I'm bringing over some Chardonnay, California roll and sashimi.
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.
(I've also had their spicy Thai chicken salad before as well, which is the 2nd to the bottom & it's great as well.)
I had dinner with friends tonight. We went to a hole in the wall BBQ restaurant. It is was so good.
Never heard of lazy dog..regional? But then again, I tend not to frequent chains.
Glad you had a great day with mom, Ms I! Hope dad is relaxing 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.

Making a Mediterranean chopped salad and tomato feta melts on pita tonight. Easy, fresh, healthy....
Leftover chicken & garlic gourmet pizza from yesterday!

Going to moms to have dinner tonight with my brothers.....chicken cutlets, mashed potatoes, corn, salad, etc. can't wait!
Scallops with a citrus mustard marinade over rice.
Submarine sandwich with turkey, ham, & roast beef w/ all kinds of veggies on Italian herb bread.
Aug 18, 2015
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.
I'm tired of cooking in this heat and humidity, so tonight it will be salads, cold cuts and cheeses.
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 $$$
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!
Aug 20, 2015
Quick, simple salad consisting of:
red butter lettuce
Loin pork chops stuffed with lemon-thyme goat cheese, mushrooms and spinach.
Aug 21, 2015
Baked Tilapia, brown rice, a big salad & pineapple.
Aug 22, 2015
Went for breakfast this morning with a friend
Dinner will be frittata, veggie salad & fresh pineapple.
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
Yes, they were good! Today, it's a few pieces of inari sushi & big salad after all too w/ as many organixc veggies as possible:
My beverage this time is mint, lemon water & for dessert, probably a little green tea ice cream!!
Grilled chicken with homemade baked beans.
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!

I had a late Sunday brunch today...
French toast, scrambled eggs, sausage & fresh fruit :haha:
Sounds good MrsC!
smoked ribs, mashed potatoes, and baked beans. Hubby did it while the kids and I did errands.

Salmon with rice, sautéed broccoli & salad.
I BBQed a jalapeno cheddar burger. It was pretty good (sooo spicy)!
