Menu Planning Monday

Hubby is gone on business again this week, so the kids and I are on our own. I remember when I was a kid and my dad would go out of town on business, we would get to have frozen pizza, boxed macaroni and cheese and hot dogs. My mom always cooked fantastic meals when […]

Menu Plan Monday

My husband is out of town all week this week on business. While he is enjoying all the fine dining New York establishments on his company’s dime, the kids and I are going to be attempting to have somewhat decent meals at home. My instinct is just to feed them cereal every night, but I […]

Paybacks

My grade school friend, Jennifer Treiber, was the daughter of our school cafeteria cook. You know how most people complain about school food? Well, I cannot relate to such nonsense.

Pet Peeve

I try not to let too many things get to me… really I don’t, but sometimes people just push a button one too many times and I get annoyed enough to say something. I will probably get reamed for this, and that is fine, but if I see one more person flaming someone else about […]

Neighbors

I know I often complain about being stuck in the Midwest and I long for being a living part of the pages of Coastal Living, but I will say this… we live in a great neighborhood. This weekend has been full of food, friends and fun. Friday night we went to a block party across […]
