Are we cooking tonight?

I'm not, I am taking sis and her crew and my crew OUT..I got up monday morning and didn't go back to bed til 11:30 last night. Mom is in the hospital and I'm running on empty. So, the cook is going to go out order a glass of wine and have dinner made by somebody else!! How about you..I could use an idea or two for tomorrow..

Make sure you fuel the tanks kadesma, with that kind of hectic schedule you will be running on empty in a hurry. Hugs!

We are having roast chicken, some kind of spud, dressing, green beans and salad.

sorry to hear about your mom kadesma. i hope you get to enjoy your dinner tonight. and have a coupla glasses of wine, they're small.

tonight is dw's birthday, so we were planning on going out for dinner, but i asked dw if she wanted me to go in to work early, and be home early to go out, or if she wanted to sleep a few more hours and i would go in late, but then we'd eat home.

guess which one a new mom would choose?

so i'm working late; i may pick up some lobsters to make tonight, or whatever fish looks fresh. will probably start with a crabcake appy.

or i'll give dw the choice of where she wants to get takeout.

we'll go out for dinner over the weekend i guess. i know she wants korean bbq, so we may go there. or possibly japanese, so they can sing in a growly voice "haddy dur day, do you. banzai, banzai, banzai!!!!"

but i will endeavor to persevere.

Today is husband's birthday, so I'm taking him out to dinner - his choice.

In fact, I'd better get cracking with the gift wrapping. . . .

Kadesma, sorry to hear about your mom. Glad you are getting out for dinner tonight.

Bucky -thanks for my laughs today - you never seem to fail. Oh, happy birthday to your wife too! Hmm, duct tape, huh, thanks for the suggestion!

BreezyCooking - happy birthday to your husband, enjoy your dinner.

We are getting massages tonight - the lady comes to our house - so it is quick and easy ---- Roasted chicken breast (either teriyaki or italian herbs and olive oil), parmesan and pine nut couscous and green beans.
