Ty has a new mantra when it comes to meal time: "Make it a salad." So the other night when I suggested burgers for dinner, he suggested we... you guessed it... make them salads. The idea at first took me a bit aback. Burgers as a salad? But I quickly realized Ty was onto something. After all, we typically eat our burgers wrapped in lettuce instead of using buns. Basically, we'd just be eating a lot more greens this way which sounded like a … [Read more...]

I get lots of comments about the number of eggs I buy weekly. Typically, 1.5 or 2 dozen eggs make it into my cart to feed our household of two. People always want to know what we do with them all.
