I'm really exhasted today and I can't figure out why. I alos have some final projects due this week that I'm working on, so this does not bode well for dinner!

Unless I get some huge boost of energy I think it's frozen pizza or takeout tonight.

I am working tonight so I will be leaving some chicken breasts for Ken to BBQ, and I will take along a tub or two of homemade turkey soup. I just never know what I might get at work, and I like to be prepared with something I KNOW I will eat.

Roast whole chicken. I think I will stuff the cavity with some fresh rosemary sprigs and a couple of lemon halves. I also have some leftover mixture from making mish's potato waffle thingies that I will recreate into something for me and daughter. HH will have spinach instead - so far he is being really good on sticking to the Atkins stuff.

I agree, kadesma. I'm actually not much of a joiner, but this gang is always so pleasant and talented that it would be a pleasure to have a sit-down together.

thank you, corazon. that's a high compliment from someone who always manages to fix something scrumptious-sounding for her own family.

Years ago, we had an Epicurious, actually, two years running, group get together here in Toronto. It was wonderful to finally meet some of the folks we'd been chatting with for years....and for the Saturday nite dinner, either people brought things they'd made or used our kitchen to prepare...It really is great meeting one's chat friends!!!!

Kadesma, let me know how your cannoli turns out. I bought some forms but haven't used them. Right after, I saw someone on tv make them using forms made from foil.

licia, I didn't make the shells, I just made the filling I had already made shells, my daughter brought me. I do want to make my own, the filling tastes great and I want to now try making the shells as well, thye have to be better than the ones I have.
