Oh, Stace, there is so much I can learn from you. You must be the daughter my mother always wished she had... Oh, wait. She has Karalyn. HA.

Thanks for the ideas and the website. You can bet I am taking note!

(I boiled and deboned my first chicken a few weeks ago to make Mexican Chicken. I am making progess. Baby steps.)

You are the daughter your mother is so thankful for also. She has told me! (But she is glad you are cooking more! Ha)

I love menu planning! I thought I was the only weird one out there who enjoyed it. Maybe part of it is that I like food so much!

I made my first batch of potato soup last night! I love fall food!

Laura said...

I loved that website! makes you want to organize and actually plan some things out huh? Well, I have good intentions you know but doubt that it will ever get past the "planning" stage!!

Amy Mccathran said...

I am also a big menu planner. I do it two weeks at a time. I definalty want your soup and granola recipes. I don't know if I could ever go for the bread, it seems very time consuming, but I'm willing to give it a go.

Oh yeah, and what is applesauce bread? sounds yummy!
