Once upon a time...

I used to make homemade pasta every week.

Pinzon 5-9-Inch Pasta Maker

These days, I'm afraid that we see this kind of pasta on our table a little lot more frequently than the homemade variety..

It's not that my kids are picky eaters.
In fact, it's just the opposite.
They're great eaters.

So, I make crockpots full of beans and rice, big pots of soup, lots of cut-up fruits and vegies,
and the occasional four boxes of mac-n-cheese.
Cheap, easy and plentiful.
That's my motto.


when I went to MN,
and my sister made meals like this for lunch.

and made a beautiful, gourmet meal for my mom's birthday party,

I was in heaven
(the no-macaroni-and-cheese-allowed-kind-of-heaven, that is.)

do you think that my sister, Angela, would like to move to CO to become our personal chef?

probably not.

Maybe I could talk her into a visit.
What do you say, sis?!
And honestly, you wouldn't even have to cook.
(Although you might be forced to eat some macaroni and cheese.)

You can't just share what you make to feed that big, hungry family and not drop us a recipe, especially when they sound like cost effecient types of meals. Come do you make beans and rice in the crockpot (that little people will eat)?? What's your fav. soup recipe?? The people want to know!! :) Blessings, Jennifer
