No need for red faces, kadesma! I'm happy you have the time to plan out and prepare something wonderful.

I'm just envious, is all.

And yes, please take (and appreciate?) that most times I'm on here I've got my tongue in my cheek. I only kid the people I really like - the rest aren't worth the time.

Today is kind of special, my daughter has wanted this grilling island for the patio for some time now and it was finally within their reach so we are using that as an excuse to party
Happy sunday Angie

kadesma

So I asked hubby what he wanted..and he wants me to give another go at my last creation flop (boxed mac n cheese, canned chicken, hidden valley ranch, etc)....that's easy enough. No thawing meat tonight!

I did think about it though, kadesma..and if I eat the left overs today, then I wont have any for tomorrow's work lunch. Then I'm forced to eat out and spend money, something I'm trying to stop doing!

I shall cook....and maybe even bake....it's chilly here again today, I could make friendship bread!

Thank you, kadesma. The best thing is that I will have leftovers for dinner later in the week. I also need to finish making the spaghetti sauce that I started yesterday. I plan on dividing the sauce into containers and putting them in the freezer for meals later on.

I'm going to a wedding, so I won't be cooking anything but I'm sure what I'll be having for dinner will be something special.
But I like my meatloaf as is I use ground beef, eggs, chunks of bread, and seasoned bread crumbs, red and green bell peppers, onions, mushrooms, and top it with ketchup which gets crusty. Then for lunch tomorrow it's meatloaf sandwiches, and if there are leftover mashed potatoes, then I can make some potatoe pancakes!

Kadesma, your dinner sounds delicious! And the best part is spending time with family while enjoying great foods together. Summer time bbq is the best. And your daughters grilling area sounds awesome!

The leftovers: meatloaf sandwiches and potato pancakes sound better than the original. Often I like leftovers from my dinners better than what I originally made.

Thanks Amber, everything was so good. We had a wonderful time and we invited the young father and 2 boys from accross the street to join Cade and Ethan and Carson for swimming and dinner. Poor guys and little guys mom had an anurisim and had to learn to walk and talk all over so daddy does most of the work while mom recupes. Those little guys had so much fun and you should have seen their faces when we brought them this huge piece of cake smiles from ear to ear..Then we had some fireworks that little kids can play with little cones you pull a string and they pop out confetti and pretty strings, the kids just screamed with excitement, what a pleasure.
My daughters grilling patio is just wonderful and such a beautiful center, granite counters wow.makes me want to do the same, but, I'm after DH to remodel the kitchen soooo Beautiful day and time with my family and now I'm bushed
