David and I will get dinner on the road on the way to Oregon...

I have a feeling he'll pick either Burgerking or Subway.

I have 2# of shrimp and don't know what I'm going to do with them yet. I'm heading to 'search' and find something yummy.

I'm thinking about Paula Deen's Shrimp and Spaghetti casserole.

I've never seen a recipe of Paula's that didn't sound delish! I'm sure your dinner will be WONDERFUL!

I'm new here, but thought I'd join in. Tonight for dinner I am making yaki mando and some chicken fried rice. I'll also have some white rice and some dried seaweed for the kids because they love it that way. My kids are old enough to help me make the yaki mando's, so we get quite an assembly line going and it doesn't take quite so long.

And that's what we're having tonight.

We're going to friends for dinner tonight and I believe I heard chicken enchilada casserole was on the menu. I think I will whip up some kind of appetizer to take along, but I'm not sure what I will do yet.

I've made that recipe before. I think I even posted it. As good as that soup is, we still have a big tupperware of potato leek soup in the fridge.I think that would be too much soup. Thanks just the same!

Jan,
Paula, makes a shrimp that is wonderful, if you like pepper..We have it often and just either put it over rice, or make a big green salad and get some nice fresh Italian or french bread and just have the shrimp and dunk the bread in the butter wine and shrimp sauce ..Right now I'm trying to type to you and keep Carson from turning off the computer I do think the recipe is on food net work or can be found in her cookbook..
