Another egg and meat fast day yesterday, so a bit more expensive than usual. Actually, it wasn't the fast that made it expensive but the fact that I had beef for supper. Pork and chicken and eggs are much cheaper. It's unfortunate that I'm... Read more

My not almost-15-year-old (next month) niece was here this week. She's 100% vegetarian and pretty much vegan (plans to become totally vegan once school starts next week), which makes for some interesting times figuring out menus, since I eat a l... Read more

"International" because it calls for Thai fish sauce, Italian spaghetti sauce, and French-ish Sunny Paris seasoning! The recipe I'm going to give is very very close to Nom Nom Paleo's Slow Cooker Cheater Pork Stew at nomnompaleo.com... Read more

Didn't get the Beef Zucchini Pie made. I was at Mom's house this morning walking her dog and working in the yard, and when she fixed me lunch I found out she was out of bread and the only veggie in the house was some carrots! So I went to Winco ... Read more
