It's forecasted to be sunny, warm and dry through Monday at least. Easter could hit 80 F!

I forgot to take anything out of the freezer this morning, so I'll probably thaw a steak in the microwave and toss it on the grill.
Sorry about your water problems Andy, I've gone through four floods and know what a pain in the butt that they can be. After all is said and done, you may want to go to your local home improvement center and purchase a small plug in pump. They're not that expensive and will suck water up from a flat surface fairly well. You just screw on a standard garden hose to the discharge of the pump and put the other end of the hose outside or into a drain. Don't buy the sump pump type models that have to be submerged as they won't suck water from a flat surface.
Good luck!

Thanks for the tip, John.

Lasagana, salad and garlic bread.

I decided to make it easy on everyone since Mom was getting in this evening and they are notorious for getting lost (EVERY vist they get lost on the drive) so it is hard to gage when to have dinner ready for since i never know when they will really be arriving. This time they will be about 1 hr 20 minutes late (they called for directions ... but that is another story), so the lasagana went in and will be ready 30 minutes after they arrive.

I know the feeling. Sometimes I cook for the three of us like I am catering a banquet and we eat it for days. But if it is edible for DH I portion and freeze whatever it is for his work dinners. Pizza I could eat forever!

We had A&W for lunch and Dad and I were still feeling full so we had sausage rolls and salad. I hope to get that beef cooked up in some form tomorrow!

A large salad with chickpeas, green peas, corn, tomatoes, green leaf lettuce, sweet onion, and extra sharp cheddar with a red wine vinegar/balsamic/Dijon mustard vinaigrette. Baguette on the side.
