Sunday was going to be another egg and meat fast, but I had lunch at Mom's and she made me a big salad while I was working in the yard. I did the egg and meat fast the rest of the day, though.

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
Boy, did I ever get off track while Libby was here! And after she left, too, but only that day. I dumped some perfectly good food in the garbage to get it out of the house.

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
This is one of the summer veggie casseroles I make in the summer and then freeze to eat the rest of the year. It's good. I don't have any cheddar at the moment, and I've exceeded my July food budget already, so I'm going to use some mozzarella I... Read more
I was looking through an old cookbook this morning, from 1918, and ran across a recipe for "Peanut Cream," which is really a salad dressing. The recipe says to pour it over lettuce or celery, but I used it on broccoli slaw, instead. I added some... Read more
