I hadn't realized how long it has been since I did a What's for Diner post until I looked back at my blog.  An entire month.  So I decided tonight was a good time to give you some meal ideas.  So let's get to it.

On Labor Day we had our friend Frank over for dinner.  Joe made a pork roast, green beans, applesauce and mashed potatoes.  It's nice that every once in awhile Joe decides to give me a break and makes dinner.

The next day we called out for Chinese food.  The restaurant is one block from our house.  Joe walked down and got it for us.  It has been a long time since we did this.  I had moo goo gai pan and an egg roll.  Joe had chicken chow mein and fried rice.  This is a picture of my plate.

On the fourth we had spinach and cheese tortellini and garlic bread.  It's hard to see, but I put mozzarella cheese on top of my tortellini.

On the fifth we had a ham slice, mashed sweet potatoes and a salad.

We had grilled chicken thighs, mashed sweet potato, and spinach and mushrooms on the 9th.

Last night we had breaded flounder, corn on the cob and a salad.

I had another picture from the 6th showing our dinner of poached salmon, but when I went to send it over to my email, it disappeared.  I had already deleted it so I guess that's it.

We also had fried rice one night and macaroni and cheese on Thursday.  Tonight we had spaghetti and meatballs with tomato sauce.

It's hard for me to think up dinners.  I think I am losing my creativity in that area.  What are you having to eat?  Give me some ideas.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a good night.

Can you believe another week is almost over?  The month is just flying by.

Today we had to go to Target to get Joe's medicine.  While he was doing that, I looked around the Dollar Spot.  If I had enough money, I would have bought a LOT of the things there.  As it was I got some new fall items.  Like I don't have enough fall decor.  Fall is my favorite season of the year and I love decorating for it.  Here's what I got.

I just couldn't resist this cute little pillow.  It's on the sofa and supporting my poor sore back right now.

There were all different kinds of kitchen towels with various sayings on them.  I had another set, gray, white and black, that said "My favorite color is fall."  Then I saw these towels and knew I had to have them.  So cute.  And I love the truck with the pumpkins on the one.

In fact, I liked the truck so much that I got a little ceramic one that I'm going to put on one of the counters in the kitchen.  I picked it up and put it down three times.  Finally I decided that if I liked it that much, I should get it.  I also got some really cute little pumpkin plates.  That reminds me that I should get out my fall plates and cups this weekend.

I also got some fall flowers, berries and wheat stalks to put in a vase.  Since these are fake they will last all season.  They are so pretty.

Then we headed to Rite Aid to pick up my medicine.  While we were there we were looking at the half-price fall items.  Joe saw the scarecrows and wanted to get the pair for the front window.  Being half price they were very affordable.  And so cute.

I also got a drying mat for the dishes for $1.

And finally Joe found and bought for me Halloween peeps.  I am not one for monsters and ghosts so I will have to eat them first.  *wink*

With so many nice fall decorations I think I have to get to work and clean up things so I can display them.  Have you gotten new decorations for this fall?

See you tomorrow.
