I think there should be a rule that once a topic's gone past 100 pages you don't have to worry so much about staying on topic..... :D

I know, I know.....

I actually like this thread so much BECAUSE we chit chat with each other just a little and then, say what's for dinner, then someone else comes on and chit chats some more and says what's for dinner. :) It's always on topic, therefore, and it does not really wander that far off at all and always comes right back to...What's for dinner! :)

So here's what's for dinner at my house:

Beef tenderloin (I use a counter-top Cuisinart rotisserie)

Cauliflower mashers

Haricots verts with herb butter

I made a mini spiced pumpkin loaf today because someone's pants are too tight and she needs fewer CARBS.

(It's a paleo bread by Elana of Elana's pantry and the whole house smells like...um, Thanksgiving! )

What's a plumcot?

It's a hybrid of plums and apricots, I believe,

but I should let LOVE2 tell you. I am guessing she's probably up to her elbows in jam preparation. :lol:

Yes, it is a plum and apricot all rolled into one. They look and taste more like plums than apricots. And the jam is now done! :)

I apologize.

Tonight we are having rice noodles mixed with sauteed balsamic brussel sprouts.

Oh! No apology necessary. :) I just wanted to direct you to a place that had additional information for you from other parents of children with Celiac and how they cope. ;)

Sweetie, you have absolutely NOTHING to apologize for.

You only answered a question!

You did not steer the discussion off topic.

You're fine! :)

and dinner sounds GREAT!!

We had Taco Salad. It's too humid here to do much.

Starting to get humid here, too. May be 90 tomorrow.

Taco salad might be tomorrow's dinner.

Thanks for the idea. :)

I know, I know.....

Some of those 100+ pages are locked now, mostly due to not staying on topic and for other bizarre reasons. :blink::rolleyes:

But, what's for dinner? :)

I'm not a chit-chat person so I just stop posting when threads turn to that.

I had baked tortillas with salsa and mushrooms

Maybe some pasta salad and chicken legs on the BBQ.

I've seen 'pluots' in the store. Same thing? Hmmm.....

Dindin last night was eggs and toast for hubby and chicken salad sammiches for me.

He is out working in this 98 degree day, mowing lawns. I know he won't be home until at least 8. Any ideas for dinner? Trying to decide what will be good after a day like that.... With another one coming tomorrow.....

Yes, pluots are the same.

Pluots, apriums, apriplums, or plumcots, are some of the hybrids.

:)

Hubs is working on the front porch in this heat.

He's getting:

Potato salad

Burgers on CHEBE rolls

and fruit salad for dessert.

We've been living together for over five years. There's plenty of states where I can call him hubby! Not this one... but anyway. We tend to say hubby and wife, especially with strangers. Easier.
