I made a turkey, mushroom and rice, green enchilada soup, last night. Taking it to work with me and sprinkling shredded cheese on it after heating.

Grandson is going to be here for dinner so I'm shooting for something he's OK with. Roast chicken, pilaf, broccoli and a salad.

Damp here with possible rain for the next few days so I'm gonna make a pot of bean soup. Comfort food feels good when the weather's rainy.

MsM, I am up for either of those choices. I will wrap up some of FrankZ's leftover birthday cake and be right over!

Seriously, Dad is having one of the beef meat pies I made today and the rest will go in the freezer. I, trying really hard on staying on my new lifestyle (we don't use the "d" word here), will have a salad of baby greens, mushrooms, avocado, tomato, cucumber, hard boiled egg, Swiss cheese and a variety of seeds and a citrus vinaigrette.

Still ill, so since we have to go to the pharmacy anyway, we'll pick up a pizza in the same strip mall.

Same here. I am on an "eating modification plan" at the moment.

That salad sounds good!! I love seeds and nuts on my salads.

We had cheese raviolis with the sauce from last night.

I used the left over tzatziki sauce to marinade some chick thighs and grilled those. Had a mushroom rice pilaf (Near East) and almost all the rest of the green beans to go with it.
