Another new week of meals to try

last post, I had many new recipes to try and they were all winners!  I will say that the Hawaiian marinade would be much better on grilled meat instead of a pan saute.

This week brings more vegan and vegetarian meals to try.  We have several people (myself included) that do not eat much meat at all, so this will be a good week for us.  It is hard to get a balance in a family of 9 with some who eat meat and some who do not!

Several of the recipes are from the Happy Herbivore Cookbook.  I got this book over 6 months ago with the Forks over Knives cookbook and glanced through them both and didn't find anything I liked.  I gave it another chance this week and found about 8 recipes that I want to try immediately, so I am glad I gave it another chance!

Baking items 
Also on the menu to try this week are:

Next up I will re-tackle the Forks over Knives and see if I can find anything that sounds worth trying in it!

So guess what?

I haven't been here in a while...but you already knew that! LOL
There have been a lot of changes since December, and I will make them fast.

I changed my major at college due to a huge snafu with the Social Work department.  I am now back in Criminal Justice and I know it is the right fit.  I have one year left.  Just one year and I will graduate!  What will I do when I am no longer a student?  I have no idea! haha

Kids are good.  We will leave it at that.  Everyone is growing and healthy and loving life.

I am writing.  Yes, writing.  I found an old story I had started writing back in highschool.  Originally a short story and only 10 pages long, we were able to only find 3 of the original pages.  I have edited and added, and now have that 3 pages up to 20 pages!  Hannah has been reading it and loves it.  Even if I never do anything with it, I will feel accomplished for finishing it.  I will keep updates on the blog.

I went to the Imagine Dragons concert Tuesday night.  It was amazing.  I cannot say enough good things about them.  Going was a very important thing for me, for personal reasons that I cannot say here, but it was needed, and it was good.  If you haven't listened to them yet, start with Demons, Radioactive and It's Time. Yes, we were this close to the stage!

That is it.  Off to do research today.  Will update later tonight.
