Baby Carrots.......

I've got 40, YES....40 packages of these in my freezer!!! Thank goodness fall and winter are right around the corner, I can put them in stew. Well, glazed carrots sound yummy too!

We have a food distribution truck that comes through town once a month, for one hour, and passes out food! This program is NOT income based, so anyone can go pick up free food!!! It really helps me out with the daycare and all.

The food is donated from various retailers, wholesale warehouses, etc..... The food is about to the expiration date, but still fully usable.

THANK YOU Harevesters! (and the local volunteers that hand it out)!

Joanna Lund Cookbooks

I have many books by Joanna Lund. When "googling" her today, I discovered she had passed away back in 2006. I felt sad. I have felt as if I had known her.

In her cookbooks she always has little snippets of her family life, and if Cliff, her "truck-driving husband", had liked a particular recipe.

I loyally use all her books. They are everyday recipes, with everyday ingredients. I highly suggest you give her recipes a try! Great recipes, and great for diabetics!

A New Week

Happy Monday. This will be another scorcher of a week. Outside chores and play in the mornings, indoor activities in the afternoon for sure!!! With temperatures at 99*-105*, and the heat index at 115*, there is no other choice!
