    Sounds wonderful ABC1223. I bought a rotisserie chicken the other day and am still eating it. I had it on a big salad last night and tonight will add it to pasta with an alfredo sauce from a jar.

    That sounds heavenly!

    I've been without a barbecue for far too long and I finally went out and bought a new one. Tonight, I grilled Asian-glazed chicken and zucchini.

    Healthy "BLT:" - Turkey bacon, spinach, and tomatoes in a spinach tortilla. Maybe some low-fat ranch too.

    I love coconut ANYTHING!!! *drool*
    Last night I made spicy Thai chicken lettuce wraps. Not sure what we're having tonight. Probably a salad since it will be so hot.

    Whatever it is, it will be easy. The other night I made veal meatballs. Well, I didn't want to splurge on ground veal, so I used ground turkey. The secret is that you simmer them in Campbells golden mushroom soup. Not cream of mushroom. Golden has a totally different flavor. Make veal or turkey mushrooms, season as you'd like (I use Adobo), drop in soup with 3/4 can of water, add diced celery and mushrooms. That's it. Simmer for 30 minutes or so, stirring often so they don't stick. Serve on rice or noodles. Surprisingly delicious.

    We have made our own avocado & strawberry salads. We put chicken, feta cheese, almonds, and use strawberry vingerette. That honey vingerette was so sweet it was great. Lol

    Had dinner with my son and his girlfriend at a little pub--the Thai inspired pizza with peanut sauce, chicken, red peppers, chopped peanuts and coconut came highly recommended. Sounds odd, but it was delicious!

    I also love breakfast for dinner. I usually end up making Eggs Benedict if I want something with eggs. If they weren't so fattening I'd be making pancakes or waffles!

    Pizza last night after driving home from golf tourney. Today is mixed grill: beef sliders, chicken sliders, veg burgers, hot dogs and a killer homemade macaroni salad. Sipping on a cocktail recipe I learned at the Barclays and my parents are coming over later for an anniversary Prosecco toast. 56 years for mom and dad xox
