  2. Happy New Year Crystal!
    I'm finally delurking after years of dropping by :). I love your menu ideas, it's wonderful inspiration and Ive printed up quite a few of your recipes.
    Mondays are soup night at my house-quick, easy and warm. That's the kind of winter meal I love!

  3. My mother always made meatloaf with the same ingredients, though she added crackers or oatmeal to stretch the meat a little more. I never knew this was "different" until I got on my own. Good menu!

  4. I've noticed that you have salad on your menu often. Is this lettuce you grow? I have a terrible time finding lettuce at the store that I'm satisfied with; many times I don't buy any because it doesn't look fit to eat. Also, how do your vary the salads so you don't get bored?

  5. HI Monica! During the summer months when I do grow lettuce I use my own. The rest of the year I buy it from Costco. I buy packages of "hearts of romaine" and I buy either spinach or a mix of spring greens and spinach. I add lots of veggies to my salads.. grated carrots, red cabbage, tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, mushrooms.. etc.. I like to think of salad as a great way to get lots of good quality veggies into my family's diet..

    Crystal :)
