mmm, gyros, I haven't made those in a while and Ian's been asking for them. I use half lamb/half beef, and tzatziki sauce (cucumber). Maybe I'll have to make those soon!

I LOVE your blog and everything you have on the menu this week sounds really good! (Although, just wanted to tell you, your chicken pot pie link goes to a recipe for "Spicy Nuts") I know that I hate it when I do that and no one tells me!! :o)

Hopefully, I can stick to my budget this week. That's always a challenge around here!
