First of all, I wanted to start off by saying thank you to everyone for your support on my last post.  My posting has obviously slowed down a lot more than I thought it would, but again, I don’t plan to be gone for too long – although I’m sure it will still be a […]

First off, I have to apologize.  I meant to post this last week.  Or was it the week before?  I remember a couple people were curious about my salad creation and I was so excited to share it, but I had forgotten to take pictures and then I completely forgot.  Then suddenly, I realized I […]

Maybe I’m getting ahead of the game with this salad.  We don’t have local cucumbers yet, or ripe tomatoes in the garden, or even peas yet which should be one of the first things, but I was still craving all the things in this salad.  It was also kind of a clean-out-the-fridge type salad where […]

I took the kids for a walk today.  I don’t know if I mentioned it but we live at the bottom of a hill and the entire town is uphill from us.  So we walked for about 45 minutes and then turned around and came home.  We did the same thing yesterday and we were […]

Wheat Berry Veggie Salad

Usually I love pasta salads.  Obviously, they need to have a good dressing, but making one at home isn’t hard at all.  I try to choose a good whole grain pasta and lots of good veggies and fresh herbs, and then it suddenly dawned on me.  I have a cupboard full of wheat berries.  Probably […]
