I had an artichoke with melted butter and lemon juice, and a sliced tomato. Nothing to write home about, but it was good.

+1!

We're working on leftovers here.

Then I do some other wacky stuff like different shaped or coloured noodles. One year I even added hot dog slices pierce with spaghetti strands and boiled that way. There was one each for the youth and leaders as they were time consuming to make!

This year the noodles were basic but I added chopped pepperoni in with the cheese cubes.

So when I make this, we too eat mac and cheese. The kids and their Mom were over to help and they ate too. To make it appealing to them we called it "home made Kraft Dinner with hot dogs in it! They accepted it and ate it!
Love this, you've given me some great ideas here! 3 of my 6 grands will be here for dinner tomorrow night while their mom has a meeting, and dad has to work. Was just thinking about dinner for them, everyone loves mac and cheese but they probably wouldn't like my adult version. LOL

I'll play around with your ideas, and everyone likes veggies, so green beans alongside should work. Ice cream for dessert. Thanks, Laurie!

I made a meatloaf in the pressure cooker. Too hot to contemplate using the oven. Rice and steamed broccoli. And I got a fruit topped cheesecake from the bakery section. It's our 31st anniversary. We'll go out for something fancy this weekend.

Thank you, Dluver! 31 years goes by in the blink of an eye, it seems. God willing, we will have another 31. 62 years may call for more than meatloaf, though. Although it was a darn fine meatloaf!

Nothing wrong with a celebratory meatloaf mmyap! Happy Happy to you and your other half.

Steve, that sushi is almost too pretty to eat ~ almost. Although I must say I've never seen sushi with a Cheez-Whiz finish...

Kayelle, I didn't know what a "lumpia" was so I had to look it up. Ah, Filipino egg rolls! My neighbor is Filipino but she still calls them "egg rolls".



Himself tossed a ham steak on the grill tonight. I made "breakfast for supper" and made home fries (perfect in the CI pan - I usually forget how hot that pan gets and scorch them) and scrambled eggs with sauteed mushrooms and smoked Gouda cheese.

Eye roast was on sale at Ingles so I took it and cut up into cubes. Put into the crock pot and made gravy with beef stock and homemade onion soup mix. Served over rice with steamed brocolli.

I made beef tacos with the usual toppings. Tasty.
