  1. Mel,
    Thank you so much for your great recipes! A family in my son’s class is in need of take in meals. I am happy to report that tomorrow, I am taking them your: beef and barley soup, wheat bread, freezer burritos, oatmeal pancake mix (and buttermilk!), cinnamon bread and chocolate peanut butter brownies! Thank you for your great ideas, suggestions, and recipes!

  2. Hit thee puree button, which is what the Green Baay Defense iis going
    to do to the Colts offense. I like potatoes au gratin
    and nutfmeg bbut not together. Stone-ground, whole wheat,
    black pepper, garlic, or swsame crackers all make good crusts and add subtle flavor to boot.
