I am combining a few leftovers; the lentil and sausage soup with some au gratin potatoes and some extra cheese sauce that didn't make it in the potato dish. Maybe a small square of corn bread too.

The last of a roast chicken warmed over with hot sauce, topped with a drizzle of blue cheese dressing, a scoop of cottage cheese and a scoop of Fire & Ice salad.

Kayelle, I'm curious to see how you make out with the dried ravioli. I used to make soup with Barilla's Cheese & Spinach Tortellini. Day one it was soup and the leftovers turned into a pasta casserole because the tortellini drank all of the broth. Both meals were very good , but I was surprised the first time it happened.

Thanks for the reminder AB. I've had that happen with other soups with noodles etc. I think I'll cook up the little ravioli separately, and dish them up into the soup bowls without adding them to the pot. That way I can have "soup" again for leftovers.

Cold, gray, cloudy, and misting. Gonna grill some bone-in chicken breast, and clean out the refrigerator. Chocolate Ice Cream later for sure. Maybe an oatmeal cookie.... NO raisins.

Hello to Uncle Bob ;)

Early dinner for us. Neither of us were very hungry so we Split a Juicy Lucy ( molten cheese stuffed burger) at a neighborhood burger palace along with their version of a "small" order of fries.

Yeah, nice to "see" you Uncle Bob and it's good to know you still have a hankerin' for chocolate ice cream!

Our meal tonight will be shared with Glenn's son and his little 2-year-old guy. I smoked a mess 'o piggy earlier in the week, so we'll have western Kentucky smoked pork barbecue sandwiches on homemade hamburger buns. I have had a craving for macaroni and cheese so I filled the crock-pot to the top with mac and cheese made with cheddar, provolone and fontina. Yummarootie! I sampled it before it was set to cook.....

We'll fill in the cracks with slices of Famous Dave's Devil's Spit pickle chips. Iced tea will wash it down and a nice slab of southern buttermilk pie with whipped cream will be dessert.
