    Tonight we are having Pizza for dinner.


    Last night I forgot to finally post what we had. I made a new recipe from Kraft called Creamy pasta with Chicken. It was really good.

    I've been really un-inspired in the kitchen lately. I think I am going to start BBQing :)

    That's the problem Rennea - we all want to start doing more Summer type cooking, but the weather hasn't been cooperating.

    With that being said, the rain has stopped, and it's fairly mild (60 here today) so I have baby-back ribs out, and will be slow roasting them today, and then finishing them on the grill.

    I'm going to do potato salad with them, I think. I'm so so ready for summer and warm weather!

    Tonight, we're having spaghetti. It's quick and easy for a church night.

    Steak and potatoes here. I was going to make the microwave white chicken chili, but DH wants me to save that for Friday when the guys come over. He wants steak and I have some in the freezer, so that's what we'll have.

    Of course, there won't be leftovers for his lunch, so he'll end up with a tuna sandwich or something tomorrow.

    I think I'm going to try a new recipe tonight...

    Unstuffed Green Pepper Soup

    1-1/2 pounds ground beef

    3 large green peppers, chopped

    1 large onion, chopped

    2 14-1/2-ounce cans beef broth

    2 10-3/4-ounce cans condensed tomato soup, undiluted

    28-ounce can crushed tomatoes, undrained

    4-ounce can mushroom stems and pieces, drained

    1-1/2 cups cooked rice

    In a Dutch oven or 6-quart saucepan, cook the beef, green peppers and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain and return to pan. Stir in the broth, soup, tomatoes and mushrooms. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add rice and heat through. Serves 10.

    Pizza here. I've been in a fairly crappy mood all day. (Up too late and didn't sleep well. That's a bad combination.) I'll be picking up a pizza, then heading out later to Bible study.

    Ham & Cheese Brunch Squares - with the recipe halved, since there are only 3 of us, and "dinner-ized" by adding spinach and mushrooms.

    Ok, time to get off the couch, and CS, and get that started.

    Yes, it does. Actually, I was mostly working on host kits while chatting online. That's one of the joys of a slow printer. While things are printing I have time to chat.

    It sounds great, but we didn't try it tonight. We decided to go shopping for a new computer desk since the one we had was falling apart and the temper tantrum thrown this morning broke it further. Can't afford to replace the computer so we bit the bullet and replaced the desk. We ended up at Steak N' Shake for dinner. We love that place!

    Oh.... That recipe was in our newspaper today. Everyday they have a recipe from a regular cook from the area. You write in to sign up, then when they contact you, you have to tell them what you are having that day for dinner, then they send a photographer to your home that evening to get a picture of you and your dish, then they put it in the paper. I love that little column.
