Just wanted to tell you about Simply potatoes. I love them they stay in the refrigerator. They are about 1.20 each and are WELL worth not having to peel,and grate fresh potatoes! FYI

Dinner at the Lawhorns. Carrie and Dan invited us over for a BBQ. We had Rib eye steak,shrimp,mashed potatoes,pasta salad, asparagus, and pineapple. It was a great evening with friends. Carrie and I have become really good friends in the last year. Our lives are very similar. She is married and has 3 children. We both lost our fathers this year while we were expecting our 3rd baby. We love to scrapbook, We both graduated in 96 and come from small towns. She is very easy going and low maintenance. The list goes on and on ;-) Just the kind of friend to have when you are raising a family. If we don't talk for a week or even two. We pick up the phone and we don't have to explain to one another why??. I love it when people say WOW we haven't talked in a while. I have tried calling!! I left several messages!! PLEASE, If I had time to locate a phone I would have picked it up and if I would have got the message.... I would have called you back. No, I did not do it on purpose No there is No reason!! I have a husband with a ODD schedule, a 93 yr. grandfather that takes a lot out of my day. and 3 BOYS all under the age of 5. So what I am trying to say is I appreciate low maintenance friends !! Thanks Carrie. You are a great friend to have and I have really enjoyed our summer of FUN!! The summer of LOVE was way better but we both got knocked up!!..LOL

They have really great local online restaurant certificates for half price. I bought a Cataldos one for 10.oo and received a $20.00 certificate in the mail. We ordered a family special for 21.99 so out of pocket tonight it cost me 3.00 and some change with TAX. so total 13.00 for dinner NOT bad..
divided by 5 equals 2.60 and we have left overs for lunch tomorrow!

I NEVER hardly make them something different but I only had 2 pork chops and pappy doesn't really care for meat any way. So Ray and I had pork chops and zucchini and the kids did love the fruit and spaghettios I made them. Pappy had green olives, 2 green onions, 1 sliced home grown tomato and fried zucchini. He does that some times! LOL
