Thanks Michele,it seems just about everytime we have fried or grilled chicken I do a pesto tortellini salad. Do you add anything to your salad? We always add tomatoes either halved cherry tomatoes or if large ones I cut into bite sized pieces. Seems like tomatoes and basil were made for each other Your dinner sounds wonderful..

Tonight is going to be loaded potato skins with salsa or sour cream to dip in. I think I will also do a big caesar salad and to heck with garlic breath at the ball game tonight. These parents aren't all that chummy anyway.

Actually there won't be any real dinner at our house tonight. We took a tea party to a lady in our church who is 93 years old and not able to get out and about anymore. Because she has a nap in the early afternoon, we had it at 3 and that is too late to have another meal. We do have some roast chicken if dh wants some of that and some raw veggies. I think I will have some sugar free gelatin later.

I usually stirfry some shrooms and steam some broccoli and snow peas. I usually add some grape tomatoes but didn't this time. YOu won't believe this, but I usually make my own dressing - this time I tried a bottled dressing that was on sale for $1 (can i tell you the brand without getting in trouble?) - italian basil pesto - I thought I would at least try it - can't taste the difference - so excited about my new shortcut. this will be a summer staple!

Oh I believe you made your own dressing It's work tho..And finding one all ready done is great. I usually just by a frozen brand of pesto, unless my basil is up and big enough to make a nice batch. I like your additions will have to try ading some snow peas the kids and I love them mushrooms too..Thanks Michele

Kadesma, we got ours from Sears also. It's the refrigerator of my dreams. I feel like this is my reward for all old leaky ones I had to defrost.
What kind did you get?

Connie we got the Kenmore Elite.We were limited in size as the opening between the wall and counter are narrow..So, DH who does not cook nor do much in the kitchen except eat, decides he likes this one cause he doesn't have to bend to get ice!!! Yep now I bend to get the food out of the bottom..Freezer is on top...ARGHHH but that's fine, it's new and works, it's just that I should have insisted on the other one I saw..It was just the opposite..Oh well there is always next time
