So, there you go. You now know what my family will be eating for the next few weeks.  You can see that I have a serious sweet tooth (Dessert every other night?  Yes!).  You will also notice that I rely too much on meat.  I am working on that.  While we don't drink green smoothies, there are a lot more fruits and vegetables in our diet than to which this list alludes.  (If you are looking for health food, go to Pioneer Woman.)  I didn't write some of those down because there are a lot of plain sides like a simple green salad, steamed broccoli or a jar of home-canned peaches.  As you know, I am a from scratch cook so if you would like recipes to any of these, let me know.  I'll be happy to send them out.  Probably, though, this will just get you thinking.

The End.


Just kidding.
