oh that MicheleMarie.......................YUMMO!

Dinner tonight will be for my DGS and myself. I think I'll give him the leftovers from last nights true genious of a dinner idea from MicheleMarie. Plus, he's a fruit/berry nut and his mommy has stocked up on raspberry's, strawberry's, blackberry's and blueberry's, which'll make up at least half his dinner. Our DD is going to the Dr for an Amnio. But if all goes well, we'll have our DGD tomorrow.

Now I'm off to write MicheleMarie a thank you for her posting. Those crazy bbq cups are insane...........................They've been added to my list of ''from now to forever'', staples!

We're just having tacos tonight. I want to cook something elaborate, but, it's my day off and I'm too tired LOL
BTW, DH is mad that noone does the dinner with us anymore. He was asking every Friday, what we were doing that weekend. He actually liked having different stuff. Although, he didn't care for the Thai and Greek. LOL

MY hubby requested corned beef and cabbage so I'm making that for him along with cornbread. Son doesn't eat cabbage execpt in Colcannon (which he loves) so he's having a corned beef sandwich. Daughter doesn't eat red meat and I'm trying to loose a few lbs so I'm making some healthy turkey chili for us. Nice and spicy!

Hubby and I lived in CA for a few years, actually he lived there and I shared time between there and NC. Our children came out a few times (they were in college at the time) and son fell in love with Fat burger. In and out reminded me of that.

EDIT: I`m also going to have to look up this "frito pie", never heard of it before, so now I`m Double curious! :)
never grew up with it, Grandmother or Mother never fixed it. Now Lamb chops are quite pricey ! Guess I'll just eat my chicken ! lol

Fat burger is good too.

I recently saw corned beef in Lowe's Foods and thought it was so strange to see it in August. I had never had it any other time than at St. Patty's day. It was just "how it was" with my mom's house. I did it in the crock but had to add extra seasoning because the packet it came with was ruined. What part of NC are you in?

Maybe a phone call and they can tell you were to find them close to where you are.
Thanks for the info. I live out in Brooklyn. Getting Fritos here can turn into a bit of a search. In the past, when I've made Frito pie, I've had to try 2 or 3 grocery stores or delis to find them. Last night for example, I went to a deli and then to the grocery store and ended up with the key foods brand. Sometimes I find them and sometimes I don't. The guy at the deli told me to try again tomorrow and they might have them. Perhaps Fritos are so popular here that they can't keep them on the shelves.

Maybe try a gas station that's also a convenience store like BP or Exxon. That's where I get mine if I don't want to deal with WalMart.

Another CA burger chain.

http://www.fatburger.com/home/ They may have them other places, but it's definitely in CA but not much further east in the quantities that CA has. There's a sprinkling of one location here or there, but only CA and AZ have mass multiple locations.

I should not look at this thread on a daily basis. Now I'm craving Fritos and chili. Could be good since Steelers football is on tonight. Is it wrong to have chili cheese dip for dinner?

Grilled burgers with juicy tomatoes from the garden and french fries. Fast, easy, done! Maybe some slice and bake cookies for dessert, I bought the ones with icing!

I made chili....something I have probably made only 3 or 4 times....guess it's 'cause I really don't care for it....but hubby likes it, soooooo....anyway, it's a recipe from a new book someone just gave me, I tweked it a bit. Serving it with sliced romaine, shredded old cheddar, some sour cream if he wants that, and I made a corn bread.....it smells very good, so, maybe I'll like it!

Maybe I will. My sister, Corazon90 might have a different recipe from mine. It might be interesting if we posted our recipes together to see if and how they differ.
