1. Monday Meal Plan, May 6

    We had a great weekend, but it was a busy weekend. Lots of comparative shopping and yard work. Who needs to do a squat challenge when you can just pull dandelions out of the yard? We also blew the weekend meal plan by forgetting to take the pork out of the freezer. That makes it difficult to turn one pork shoulder into two weekend meals. Oops....more

  4. Trying to figure things out...looking for some help

    Hi - I am new. My page says I joined in 2010, but I have no memory of it (oops!), so I am just now doing my profile, submitting my blog, etc. I have a few questions. I hope someone can help me - I didn't see any other place to find answers. The "tour" was not a lot help... :-(Will my blog automatically show up on my profile when it is accepted?How does active membership benefit my blog?What is the best way to get started here - finding groups, friends, etc.?Most importantly, how do I set up the social media section? (that second part that asks for feed, etc.)...more
    Darn it, that Tour link needs to come down. It's old and outdated. I'll work on that next week. ...more
  5. Golden Books Changed Children's Publishing

    You are out shopping at either the grocery store or the pharmacy and you happen upon some children's books. They have colorful cover art and look like fun. When you pick them you and check the price you discover that they are inexpensive. It makes its way into your basket, perhaps with one or two more. If this sound familiar, you might just have Golden Books to thank for it. ...more
    I believe I've seen them at Toys R US too.more

  8. Yay Spring! Meal Plan Monday, April 29th

    You guys. You guys! I left the house yesterday wearing a dress and flats -- no tights, no hosiery of any kind -- and a jacket and i had to take off the jacket because it was too hot. And then we did yard work in the sunshine. It was like spring finally decided to show up more than a little fashionably late. Welcome spring! Less welcome are the blisters on my feet that come when I switch from wearing socks and boots to flats minus socks. Let's just say there won't be any running for a few more days. ...more

  9. Blogger Meetup?

     Hello Everyone, I recently moved back to my native Minnesota after living on the west coast for many years.  I'm a blogger and am looking to connect with other writers here -- does anyone have an interest in getting together over coffee one day?  Or, perhaps there is an existing group that already meets? I'm located in St. Louis Park.  Look forward to hearing from anyone who has an interest. ...more

  10. Meal Plan Monday, April 22

    Our meal plan went to pot pretty quickly last week and as a result ate too much takeout. There are weeks like that. The plus side of the takeout bonanza is that we really, really want lots of homemade meals this week. Well that and we ordered the spicy veg pizza we had ordered last month and it didn't make my lips swell up like balloons this time. Yay! Monday: The shrimp dish we didn't make on Friday because we ordered pizza. (It's ok, we use frozen shrimp and it never even got out of the freezer.)...more
