And it’s certainly not the sexiest of names so I didn’ t have high hopes. Finally, after reading about it […]

We did it with $7, including a dessert or appetizer. And somehow, that seemed not too bad. Yes, it was challenging. But it wasn’t so challenging that I ever worried that I might not have made the limit. But this week, with a slightly larger $10 budget and without the added stress of an app […]

I love – LOVE – the ease of food that can do double duty. For instance, a roasted chicken like the one mentioned on the Everyday Food blog today can be Sunday dinner, Monday chicken tacos, Tuesday chicken and rice and Wednesday chicken salad. Talk about a blessing for a busy, harried mom — or […]

On New Years Eve, we had a fun visit from an old and dear friend of mine, and her family. Then we ate Chinese food (Shawn’s tradition) and rang in the New Year watching The Next Food Network Star (I think I want to be the next star!). On New Years Day, Shawn had to […]
