1 cup milk
1 package (3.3 oz) white chocolate instant pudding/pie filling
1 8 oz. container Cool Whip (thawed)
3 tbs. sliced almonds
1 container (6 oz) fresh raspberries (or strawberries or omit them all together)

Toast the almonds lightly. Melt chocolate chips in microwave and "paint" the insides of the waffle bowls with it.

Mix pudding with the 1 c. milk. Melt white choc. chips in microwave and then fold into pudding mix. Fold in cool whip. Spoon into waffle bowls and garnish with toasted almonds and fresh berries.

This is SOO good!

You're welcome!

It's really light and fresh and YUMMY!

I would make some myself, but I'm too hot and cranky.

I found PRIME strip steaks in the marked down bin at the local grocery, so I grilled prime steaks, made baked potatoes with sour cream, fresh green beans and a wilted salad. I haven't eaten prime beef since the days when my father managed a meat market. It's just SO decadent! DH had never had any prime beef, and was suitably impressed. Although, at $13.50 a pound (and that was clearance!!!) We won't be having it often.

The cajun chicken was a HIT!

Ryan loved it - there's enough for him to take for lunch tomorrow too!

I liked it, but probably would have liked it more so if I was feeling 100%.

Good for you on the splurge! I always figure it is cheaper than going out to a high end steak place. There is a lady at our Farmer's Market selling some sort of beef and DH always stops but at $25 a pound for a ribeye, I'm not willing to try it out!

Almost there Jaclyn! Wow!

My meals aren't too exciting as we are on a healthy eating plan around here. Tonight was grilled chicken, asparagus, and the leftover goat cheese grits from last night. Those were so yummy! I'm a grit lover and hadn't had them in a long time.

For those interested: It is 99 calories per 1/2 cup serving if you make it this way:

4 cups water
1 cup quick cooking grits
3/4 tsp salt
chopped parsley and basil
4 oz goat cheese

Boil water, add grits and salt slowly, lower heat to low and cook for 5 mins then add herbs and cheese. I added a little greek yogurt for creaminess.

That actually sounds kinda good, but I've never had grits. My Momma wasn't a fan of them so she never made them. However I may have to try them at least once. Can't be THAT bad if there is goat cheese in them!

You can adjust the cajun to make it as spicy as you want.

4 oz linguni pasta
2 bonless skinless chicken boobs cut into strips
2 tsp cajun seasoning (I just shake until all chicken is coated the more spice the better in my book)
2 tbsp butter
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1/2 red pepper, chopped
4 fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 green onion, minced
1 1/2 cups of heavy cream
1/4 tsp dried basil
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 tsp salt (I omit)
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp ground pepper
2 tbps grated parmesan cheese

Bring large pot of water to boil. Add pasta and cook until al dente; drain.
Meanwhile place chicken and cajun seasoning into bowl; toss to coat.
In a large skillet melt butter and saute chicken until no longer pink and juices run clear.
Add green and red peppers, sliced mushrooms, and green onions; cook until slightly tender 2-3 mins. Reduce heat and stir in heavy cream. Add spices and let heat through.
In a large bowl combine sauce and noodles. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
We love this one!!!

I had only ate them once at Waffle House. They remind me of Cream of Wheat, require some sort of flavoring. I really want to add cheddar cheese and bacon next time!

I made 'Chicken' Divan (we don't eat meat so I use Quorn, a meat substitute that is really good!) over rice for dinner last night and peach cobbler for dessert. So, so, so good!! I have a love affair with white rice. I love the way it tastes and I love the way it smells. Brown rice just doesn't satisfy me

We're having leftovers tonight. I love leftovers. No cooking, no mess.

tonight was supposed to be pizza night- well Jesse did something to his knee. He woke up and could barely walk did his work and fell asleep at 6:30 downstairs on the couch and Joey has been at grandma's since 4:30.

I had a sandwich and some broccoli and cauliflour.

So much for the menu...

We went to a small town this afternoon for their festivites. Joey ate there but by the time we all eat it would be close to $35 for food and drinks.

So Jesse and I skipped that and we are going to order pizza tonight. Works for me.

Homemade chicken spaghetti tonight for dinner, but we'll be using the rest of the linguine noodles instead of spaghetti noodles.

I ended up making pizzas last night since we had all the ingreds. and we didn't have to spend anymore money.

Crockpot surprise night:
Tonight is pork tenderloin in an apple burbon sauce in the cp (haven't tried this one yet)

I will also do mashed taters and corn on the cob with strawberry banana smoothies for dessert.

Howdy! I need to figure out something for dinner tonight as it is past noon here on the West Coast and everything is frozen. I don't want to spend the money on take out tonight either. Maybe I should make tacos as I think I bought new tortillas last week.

Yesterday we were at Mayhem all day and I got a gross hamburger (they ran out of cheese!) seriously, a concert venue that holds thousands of people runs out of cheese. At least my garlic fries were good and I lost count of how many ounces of beer I consumed.

I need to sit down tonight and plan our meals for the week otherwise I'm in trouble.

Michelle - Can't wait to hear your report on the pork tendloin. Sounds yummy! I buy them at Costco and need a new recipe. Plus CP is even better.

Tonight is burgers on the grill (love those Costco frozen patties), corn on the cob, and grilled asparagus. I wanted to cry when the farmer told me last Saturday was the last week. I held back and only bought two bundles. Time to find a new vegetable obsession. Green beans are looking good right now as well as heirloom tomatoes.

Tomorrow - no idea. DH wants to eat foccia (sp?) bread and parm cheese for dinner. I may just let him!

I went to the Farmer's Market on Saturday and have lots of veggies to choose from. I think I'll make bacon, blue cheese veggie patties and sesame green beans tonight.

I bought calabacita squash - I've never heard of it and don't know how to fix it other than like zucchini. I'll have to do some searching.

Please share the recipe for veggie patties, I have a serious blue cheese addiction.

I have never heard of that squash. All recipes as a yummy "crab" cake recipe made with shredded zucchini. I like to sautee my zucchini with garlic and mushrooms. Then top with a little parm cheese.

Boneless pork loin chops, baked potatoes, and a mixed veg (it's from Aldi, and called Prince Edward Medley- yellow & green beans with baby carrots-we love it!)

I'm jealously guarding three big tomatoes from friends, when they hit perfection, we'll have BLTs. I'm drooling, just thinking about it. I love a BLT, especially with home grown tomatoes!

Just chiming in on the grits issue. I was raised on 'em, and I love 'em! All they need is butter and salt, yum! It's funny that I don't care for hominy, it's too big and bland, but grind it down into grits, and I love it.

I was raised on the West Coast and never had them but I'm in love with them!! Tonight I made them with garlic chicken broth and some parm cheese. Yummy!!!

I really want to make shrimp and grits, any suggestions are welcome.

We had grilled chicken breast with a rub that was leftover from a few weeks ago and somehow all the salt was left which I didn't know until we ate it. Wow it was salty. Then grilled asparagus and cut up fruit.

Tomorrow - no clue! Hubby wants bread and cheese which I may take him up on. I usually add some dried fruit and nuts for protein. Oh course a great glass of Chardonnay or Viognier.

I made blueberry pancakes last weekend with fresh blueberries, my favorite! I even splurged and bought real maple syrup.

Grits are a staple here at our house. I make cheese grits w/and w/o bacon for my grandboys when they are here and they love them. They are not big cheese eaters, so it's a great way to sneak cheese into their diets. LOL, I don't mention that there is cheese in them and it's all good. Here's a tip. If you don't want or have the time to fry bacon, just add some of the real bacon bits (the soft ones from the pack) into your grits. We love fried grits and tomato gravy for lunch or supper, and fried shrimp, fish or oysters just scream out for a hot bowl of buttered grits and some hush puppies. When my kids were little, they mixed peanut butter in their grits, LOL.

I always joke with a coworker that I should have been born in the south. I love the food! Thanks for the bacon bit suggestion, might have to try that soon as I buy the big bag from Costco. I'm not a huge rice fan so this was a nice find to add a little carbo to dinner.

My next adventure is polenta. I bought the pre-cooked in a tube and I'm not sure what DH will say about that one!

My next adventure is polenta. I bought the pre-cooked in a tube and I'm not sure what DH will say about that one!
How about couscous?

(It doesn't get any easier- I had to do menus for a dance camp of 165 people at a YWCA camp, and introduced the cooks to couscous- OMG! They were SO tickled with it! Never did get to perfect rice for a horde for them, though. I later managed to make perfect rice in huge amounts by baking it, a friend had a commercial stove that I could play with.)

I haven't done polenta as such, but have had cornmeal mush, which is pretty much equivalent.

So Ryan and I didn't end up with waffles last night. Cheri (from the PPPHM thread) mentioned having a salad that reminded me of a taco salad so I had Ryan get me one from the restaurant up the street .

Soooo tonight we are ALL having waffles with fresh strawberries, blueberries, bananas and real whipped topping!

Hubby hates it! Not sure why, but that has been nixed from menu planning.

You can make the polenta creamy but the calories to do that is a little high. Apparently you slice it and put it in a frying pan then top with something. I thought you could just eat it plain, maybe I'll try that.

GEEZ MISS THREE days and miss a lot!!! Sorry for not commenting on the tenderloin Sam.

It was good here's the recipe:

Ingredients
2 cups barbecue sauce
2 medium Granny Smith apples, peeled and diced
1 small onion, diced
3 tablespoons cider vinegar
1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 cup bourbon or apple juice concentrate

Preparation
Bring first 5 ingredients to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat; reduce heat, and simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in bourbon.

It was a bad night and I was crabby with Joey and Alex was crabby because he was tired so no picture.

Last night was garlic bread pizzas and corn dogs and french fries- we had some nasty storms go through so it was something quick and easy.

Tonight I am making the Thanksgiving in a Pan- modified.

2 1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken
2 boxes of stove top stuffing
2 cans of sweet corn
2 jars of gravy

The directions for this are completely different but we decided that we wanted to make it different. I will try to remember to take a picture.

Yeah, grits are a little bit of heaven in a bowl...lol. I fry my hominy and it's wonderful. Drain it really well in a colander to remove all the liquid and fry it in a little bacon fat (just enough to coat the pan to keep it from sticking) and season it with salt and pepper. If I have leftovers, I add it to my cornbread batter, along with some crumbled bacon to make muffins.

Not sure what I'll cook for supper tonight. I do have to cook for a PrimeTimers dinner at church tonight so will probably just make extra and make a plate for DH to warm up when he gets home from work tonight. I've gotta get my butt in gear here this morning and decide what I'll cook for the dinner and then go buy the ingredients. Living out in the boondocks has it's advantages, but having to drive 20 miles roundtrip to the grocery store is a real bummer.

Now worries and no apologizes needed.

It is hot here so we had roasted shrimp, artichokes, bread, and cheese for dinner. I went grocery shopping yesterday and they had sole stuffed with shrimp and cheese, so we are having that with grilled asparagus and corn on the cob.

Not sure about tomorrow, I would like to just order a pizza, but I'm really trying to lose weight and that would send me over the edge. I have no control around a cheese pizza!
