OK I just spoke to my brother and he said he has had the lentils for the past 3 nights so he wants to do something different. He will either pick something up on the way over or I will make pumpkin polenta with sausage.

We decided on oven fried chicken. I think I'll use french fried onions instead or with the flour. Not sure how it will work out.

Fresh veggies and sliced tomatoes.

I've only made coconut cream pie twice. as I recall, it called for 1/2 t coconut extract. don't know if yours will or won't but in case it does, trust me here, a very little (the 1/2 teaspoon called for) goes a very long way. Best of good fortune to you, hope you love your accomplishment! I did, hubby did 'more'.................<<<...loves coconut...about the applesauce, who knew? I didn't as my MIL has made it forever. But, I never watched her actually go through all the steps and believe me, so very much not worth the effort/straining/sieving/boiling/reducing/Cuisinart-ing. Blah blah blah, too much. <<And...........none left..........

Okay, now for the idea of a business including brother. A lady that used to come into a food bulletion board I frequented started out by asking us, the regulars, what our favo sandwiches were. <<(she wanted the ingredients too, btw). After getting a truckload of them, she did in fact open a sandwich shop in Georgia somewhere. I'd never heard of the city or the big city by her little city. She posted pix for the board to see and every once in a while, gave us updates. Long story short, she's opened two more. It was 'that' successful. I am sooooooooo jealous, but happy for anyone that ventures out in that direction<>one of your dreams.

Thanks for the heads up on coconut extract, but I was lucky,mine just used 2-3 teas. of vanilla so I'm hoping it tastes okay. It looks really pretty and is setting up fine.

I have so many leftovers in my fridge that I just had to make some use of them. I took the bbq pork ribs from last night's dinner and shredded it. Then add more bbq sauce for a bbq pork sandwich on a whole wheat bun. I had a partial bag of shredded cabbage, so I made coleslaw with it. Then I reheated some baked beans on the stove and that was dinner.
