with mark out of town for another week, i'm not even going to bother with a meal plan. yesterday morning i made a pot of chili, and i have enough left for two meals. i know i'm eating out for dinner tuesday (popeye's 99 cent special!) and probably another night as well, so that keeps me fed up until friday date night. saturday we have dinner reservations at a brazilian steakhouse. sunday i'll make a big batch of soup or chicken and dumplings to keep me fed the following week.
