Lefse, I think it would work really well on your chicken. I've always used it on chicken; this is my first try with pork. I use 1 part plain yogurt (not fat free) to 2 parts balsamic dressing. I usually marinate overnight, but I think a couple hours would do. Hope you like it!

Sorry, I thought everyone knew about Jello pie. Maybe it's called something else in other parts.

It's a package of Jello (any flavor) dissolved in hot water according to the package, mixed with a tub of defrosted Cool Whip and poured into a prebaked or store bought pie shell and set in the fridge until it's set. My DH grew up on it and to this day its his favorite dessert. Very kid friendly too!

ps/ You have to use regular Cool Whip, not the low fat or it won't work...ask me how I know...

We always add a tablespoon or so to our lentil soup. It gives it a wonderful flavor. I'll have to try it with bean next time.

I have a meeting tonight, so I'm thinking something really simple. I have veggie burgers, and homemade bread in the freezer. Not sure what I'll have with it yet.

I missed these threads more than anything the last month!

We had pasta and pesto....I spent to much time catching up with a months back log of emails to cook much, lol. Then we had crackers with my new favourite cheese! Its a gorgonzola mixed with marscapone and walnuts, yummy. Gorgonzola is on our metro network, amazing huh!

I love the sound of vinegar in bean/lentil soup, I want to try that!

Thank you very much. I've never heard of this. LOL, I've clearly lived a sheltered life. And I bet I can guess how it turned out with the low fat stuff...ewwww! Sloppy!

We're grilling out thick pork chops. I'm having lots of veggies and my DH is having FF's.
