Snow peas, and water chestnuts. Need some more crunch in there. Sounds awesome though.

Ooh! Good idea. That would add and extra shot of "juiciness" too.

I made something similar once and while the flavor was right, it felt like my mouth was full of paste. Ick.

No. Not really cooking. It's raining. Not motivated. So I'm just making some rice and heating the shredded remains of this week's pork ribeye roast with some tomato pesto and tomato sauce to go with the rice.

Lasagna is just about done. We're having that with salads.

Not sure which one of you mad scientists brought up the idea of taco meat mixed with blue-box mac and cheese, but I have been fascinated with it in my head ever since. I love all things blue box and spray cheese, so sue me. Taco salad last night, so I get to test it out today with the leftover meat. Strangely, I am rather excited!

I have an Italian casserole in the oven, with bow tie pasta and all kinds of goodies like sun dried tomatoes and artichoke hearts. I've made it before with chicken, but this time I'm using hot Italian sausage. It was great with chicken so we'll see what happens with sausage. We'll have green salad too.

I love that too!! Add a can of diced tomatoes, or better yet, Rotel tomatoes with chili's, and it's over the top good.

Kayelle, I think it might have been you that originally suggested it, and I have been obsessed with it ever since. And I totally have a can of Rotel in the pantry, I was planning on adding a bit of salsa but the Rotel would be AWESOME, can't wait to experiment. I know Sandy Lee often gets knocked for her semi-homemade approach, but I am all about taking pantry items and making them into something extraordinary with the help of my overflowing spice cabinet. Scratch cooking reigns, but semi-homemade cooking has it's place....at least in my busy world!

Leftover Thai from lunch, and finished off the caramel apple, following another afternoon of lengthy and extremely tedious meetings. Blech.
