Mmmm, two of my favourite flavours in soup! It sounds amazing. I make a butternut squash and pear soup, and a roasted red pepper and tomato, but I haven't used sweet potatoes in a soup before.

Lefse, thanks, I will try it!

So, since DH didn't think he could finish work and make it to your places in time, we are settling on the rotisserie chicken and accompaniments. I also asked for some of my favourite ice cream - Vanilla with white chocolate flakes.

I'd be blanching and "Foodsaver"ing all day!

Orange Roughy for me tonight. Not sure how yet, grilled or blackened. Gotta use up some mushrooms so I'll cook them in butter. My bread in the machine should be done around 10:00, so I'll be eating late. That will give me time to pick out something else. Probably something I can do with the shrooms and maybe some onions...

Toss them with the crumbled bacon and carmelized onion. S&P to taste.

Corazon, that pasta sounds wonderful!

We had homemade pizza with sausage, sundried tomatoes and grilled eggplant. We'll end the evening with hot fudge sundaes as soon as I get off the computer and make them!

I checked my receipt to make sure that I was not imagining the price. It was a $1.98/lb. Still a good price!!

Thanks PA. I thought the balsamic could be overpowering but it was not. The chicken came out a little dry but I think it was because I was trying to keep it warm for dh until he got home. Ravioli was good though, served it with Parm-Reg. Think I'll put toasted pine nuts on it next time.

Didn't get to make the salad. Callum is still super sick. I can't wait for him to be better, for more reasons than one. This is the worst illness he's ever gotten.

I could use one of those sundaes...
