Dinner on August 23rd?

Nobody eating today?

I've got a pot of chicken corn chowder on the stove and we are having BLTs to go with. I'll likely do some kind of veggie with that as we are SWAMPED with veggies at the moment.

I'd like to bake a cake for dessert, but I can't decide on what kind! I've ruled out chocolate and lemon. Any suggestions?

We ordered pizza. I have a headache and I can't face cooking.

Mmm Cake ! I would like a pineapple or peach upside down cake, please

Dinner tonight is marinated grilled chicken fajitas and I already am dabbling in a bowl of guacamole.

Kitchen's closed tonight. We're doing Chinese take-out tonight as we're off for a long weekend.

I am nauseated from IV anti-biotic so at the moment don't feel like anything. Thank goodness this is only a 3-day session.

DH said he will call before his break and if I want him to pick up something he can bring it then. He takes such great care of me!

Chinese style here. Not sure what to call it. Pork and veggies, with oyster sauce, sesame oil, topped with sliced almonds on fried noodles...

Got home late, so I picked up a cooked chicken for chicken and noodles.

We will be having Hillshire Farms "Chicken Apple with Gouda Cheese Premium Smoked Chicken Sausage" cooked with sauerkraut, and served with baby peas. I tried this sausage when I was at my daughter's last year, and while beef will always be my favorite, they weren't bad.

Apparently people here were put off by the name (I probably would have been too if I hadn't already tried them) and no one was buying them. They had marked all of that variety down from $3.99 a package to $1.95. I bought all ten and put them in the freezer. Too good a deal to pass up, and as I told the cashier, with that type of meat, if you don't like it so much you can cover it with BBQ sauce or salsa and you'd never know.

Always nice to hear the wonderful way DH treats you. Hope you feel better soon.
