    I haven’t really thought about dinner tonight, but it’s going to be in the high 70s or low 80s today in Pennsylvania. So, I’m thinking about something summery, probably just grille some burgers and enjoy the weather!

  2. Rebecca

    Surprisingly, I haven’t totally made up my mind yet…possibly our take on a johnnycake with shredded pork, peppers and onions baked in.

  3. Kay

    Dinner? Oh man.. need Ree’s book for ideas!!! πŸ™‚ Tomato soup and toasted cheese sandwiches on the menu!

    I actually am making the Pioneer Woman’s Frito Chili Pie!!! My husband and I made the chili last night because I have a late class today (I’m a second year law student…all I do is go to school…), and we will pour it over the Fritos when I get home! We love everything the Pioneer Woman makes, so I’m sure this will be great also!

  6. Robin

    I wanted to make BBQ chicken in the crock pot…but it looks like I’ll be grabbing something fast for dinner tonight.

  62. Laurie A.

    Since today is March 14, it is “Pi” day (3.14) and I will be making pizza tonight for my family. I just celebrated it in my classroom today with 4 different kinds of pie (and my students had to taste them and vote on their favorite one). I will be taking home some leftover pie too. So it is pizza (margarita pizza, turkey pepperoni and olives and mushrooms pizza, and pesto tomato pizza) and pie for Pi day. =)

  63. Kristi

    We are having spaghetti and meatballs, but I’m trying them with turkey burger and sausage instead of ground beef. Hope it tastes good!!

  64. melle

    I’m making grilled salmon and asparagus. And to round it out, we’ll be making that pesto cream sauce pasta. Yum! So glad I had all the stuff on hand already! It was going to be plain old pasta al fredo until I saw that recipe. Mmmm!

  122. Caren in TX

    Potstiker soup using homemade vegetable broth. First time. Hope it is as good as it looks in the magazine.

  123. Janie Moore

    Tonight I drove through Wendy’s and picked up a small chili then I drove through McD’s and picked up a bowl of oatmeal. Sounds whacky but I’m dieting so I didn’t want to order anything with too many calories. πŸ™‚

  124. Christine L.

    I made two different dinners…My little guy had chicken fries and silly fries. His pet name for these (popular at our house) dinner items…onion rings = silly fries. Chicken fries are homemade thin sliced pieces of chicken breast breaded and deep fried.

    His Daddy had french toast fingers. Egg dipped french bread sticks, deep fried and rolled in cinnamon sugar, served with a side of maple syrup.

    Mommy had a mini combo of both – some french toast, some chicken and a couple of onion rings. Deep fried night not so healthy…will be a yogurt and granola morning πŸ™‚

  125. Heather K Miller

    Sadly, it was a tough and busy day so we had cereal for dinner. Yes, Rice Crispy treats cereal and Peanut Butter Cheerios…sometimes days like this are necessary for me though.

    We had science fair tonight so dinner was frozen burritos!! sad but true!
    I did cook them!! ha ha

  129. Denise Terry

    I didn’t have to make dinner tonight…my husband took me out! But I wil be back to cooking tomarrow. I’m thinking of grilling, it’s going to be in the low 70’s!

  130. Sarah

    After a nasty bout with a shellfish allergy, I’m not feeling 100% yet or up to cooking, and husband is working late tonight…so I made the kids pancakes with strawberries. Not very exciting but the best I could manage tonight.
