I was going to do a turkey breast roast, but with hospital trips and not knowing whether TB is going to work or not (I am hoping not) it is all up in the air.

I didn't have anything around dinner time as I was at the hospital and there was nothing I could get that I could eat so I ended up coming home and eating things I shouldn't. Even after a month just a little bit of sugar affected me greatly - won't make that mistake again.

The yungun is playing at the mall tonight so we're going to stop and eat in the food court and listen to his quartet play Christmas music.

What exactly is this? Is there a sauce with it like our spaghetti with meat sauce (you've probably seen the thread, lol), or do you simply toss pasta with the beef and sundried tomatoes? I'd love to see what it looks like.

I have no idea what I'm having for dinner yet. I'm kind of bummed out about that. I should have managed my time better these past few hours. Now I'm sitting here wondering what to make

Well that's not good, Andy. Feel better soon!

I spelunked some spaghetti sauce with clams. Then I discovered we were out of spaghetti. So it will be with multicolored spiral pasta.

My left arm (primary) and right hand still hurt from my fall last weekend so DH is making hamburgers and mac and cheese for dinner. Ice cream sandwiches for dessert.

Hot soup sounds nice. I need to throw a chicken in the pressure cooker and make some chicken noodle soup with kluski noodles soon.

I found a container of pre-sauces rigatonis in the freezer and a small piece of pork loin that I *was* going to use for fajitas. So it's leftovers for me tonight. Along with some green beans and garlic bread.

We had fried chicken done my way as close to KFC as I've been able to get, mashed taters, buttered peas, iced tea and banana bread.

Pan seared pork chop and a baked delicata squash. Chocolate ice cream.

While the oven was going, I crumbled up a good size hunk of already dried out cornbread and made crumbs. Not sure what they will be used for, but they wiill go in a freezer bag for something.
