    Great post, I like how you did the format with the entrees, sides and desserts all together. I have to admit, Costco was giving away samples of Hebrew National dogs yesterday, so I’m kicking off the weekend tonight with hot dogs. But have big plans for the rest of the meals. A couple of things caught my attention here. The pesto chicken and that grilled pound cake. Thanks Robyn

    Grilled pound cake always rocks. At first I thought it was texas toast in the picture. Once I realized it was pound cake, I still was on toast mode and thought about what kind of sandwich you could make with two pieces of grilled pound cake. Hmmmmm

    A sandwiched dessert? Or something like a monte Christo?
