>Recycling… Food


I’ve mentioned before how I do alot of planned overs. Making one meal and planning on turning it into another meal. This week ended up being the ultimate planned over week quite by accident. I know that I put up my menu for the week on Monday so this is a little repetitive but […]

On Monday April 19, I was able to see a part of Wyoming’s government in action. Myself and two others left our town at about 8:30 AM headed for the Wyoming Legislature’s Joint Agriculture, State and Public Lands and Water Resources Interim Committee meeting. It was a 3 and a half hour drive […]

Quick and Easy Lunch or Light Dinner Ideas

Spicy Old-Fashioned Gingerbread

I love reading historical fiction. In the books I read the ladies always make sure to have a treat on hand in case visitors drop by and for their children and ‘menfolk’. Gingerbread seems to have been a very popular treat usually topped with applesauce or with whipped cream. I love the flavor of […]
