I started looking for Kabocha Squash recipes this evening and lost track of the time. I did learn a lot though. I am building quite a repetoire of recipes for Kabocha Squash. My next research project will be for Sweet Sugar Pie Pumpkins. I have at least two of those.
Ann, This is a great time to buy fall and winter clothing. All the catalogs are trying to get rid of them. Check out catalog stores, Overstock, Amazon, Nomorerack and any others you can think of. There are some really great sales out there.
Heather, I will be checking your blog later today. I want to see what is available that I can use? I can't remember if JoAnna included Nutritional Data with her recipes. I'll soon find out.
oh and I forgot to answer your question, home school is going GREAT! We are doing Calvert, it's been around over 100 years. Our local school district pays for us to do it. The local school district calls it MVPS. And they have their own building now with lots of workshops, and activities for the kids. At least once a month something for Kindergarten. (the higher the grade the more stuff they have). But, Lela just loves it! We also belong to a few of the co-ops here and do their stuff too. So she's having a ball, and it's going really well. I highly suggest calvert to any one. It's a really good program!
That's one reason I'm trying to get my blog as self sufficient as possible. I have full control of my blog, and how things are listed, etc. So I'm working with my blog and MC to get things more user friendly for myself AND for all my He friends. So that we can all access the recipes easier. I wish that there was a easier way to catergorize the recipes here as well. But, thankfully due to all our hard work we were able to restore Judy's site and that has a good deal of recipes there too.
yeah I try not to give WM much of my business either, but really we are left with barely any choice sometimes. It's sad! But, I shop local as much as possible! They are targeting all we have left Krogers, by putting this new WM (called a neighborhood WM, it's just a very tiny version of WM) directly across the street from EVERY Krogers we have! They already drove out all the others we had here. Sickening!
But, any how, Camp Courageous was a fund raising cookbooklet that JoAnna put out for a small camp in Iowa for handicap people and their family, called Camp Courageous. It's ALL desserts, it is in the book section here! But, I'm working on putting the whole thing on my blog today. Only a few recipes left to go!
I am not sure why it's not working for you Ann, are you just clicking on the link? Cause when I go there and click on the link it takes me to the recipe, so I'm not sure.
lol Mastercook is not that hard. For the most part right now though I am just putting in recipe titles, so I can have the same type of search engine that used to be on the HE site! Once I get all the titles put in, then I will begin to add the recipes too! lol
Many cookbooks in MC's hayday were released digital in MC format, Jo had one CD like that but I am not sure if it was MC format or not! Too bad more weren't released in MC format, cause Cooklight has a lot of their books released in MC format, so it is nice to have them in the MC easily like that!
Good Afternoon. Chilly but the sun is out. I didn't get on line yesterday. By the time we got home from visiting our friends I was one tired lady. They live about a 45 min. drive north of us and we drove the express lane most of the way. I was happy to see their redone kitchen. It really is lovely. They had Home Depot do it with new cabinet doors and a laminite on the rest of the cabinets. New counter tops that I'm not sure what they were but so pretty and a tile floor. We player Mexican Train dominoes and then went to lunch and back to their house for another game of dominoes. We came home with a bag of lemons and tangerines off their trees that were just loaded with fruit. DH said the tangerines are so sweet. I haven't tired one yet. DD will enjoy the lemons for her ice tea. Our lemon tree is so pitaful compare to their big one.
Judy, I didn't tell you the truth. For some reason I can not put up the books that Heather had posted here in the Recipe Index for Books and Newsletters.
Heather, why can't the tinyurl.com be pulled up any more for the recipes in the books and newsletters you posted in the Recipe Section???????????
Judy, if you scroll down our threads here you will find one that Heather has printed lots of recipes from different H E cook books. The Camp Courageous Book is there with all the recipes. I know because I printed them all out and put in a skinny note book.
Heather, you know I have Mastercook but have never 'mastered' it. One day.
Patty, neighbors have trees that are blooming already. they don't know it isn't spring yet. I have no idea what kind of tree they are but remind me of dogwood. The flowers on them are white. At the hospital grounds they had pansy's planted. They seem to be a very hardy plant.
Well when my jeans get dry I can get dressed. I only have two pair that fit and didn't want to put on my dressiers slacks. I do have a couple of pair of jeans that are really a thin fabric but not very warm. This time of year isn't a very good time to shop for warmer clothes as all the spring and summery things are beginning to shop up in the stores.
You just stated one of the reasons I will not shop at Walmart. I hate to see them drive other businesses out of town. Their merchandise is shoddy and they misuse their employees. 'nuff said.
Try checking on line. You might just be able to find some rhubarb there. I have a company that dehydrates fruit and veggies. I love their products because freeze drying gives a much more appetizing product.
Tell me about Camp Courageous. I have not heard of it. You have my curiosity in full throttle. How are you and your family doing with your homeschooling? I am interested in the recent information in our state that is working on proving that pedagogy isn't necessarily the best way to teach children. I have long thought that helping the child to find answers to their questions is a better way of teaching. It certainly worked for my grandchildren,
I cooked up a kabocha squash last evening and I have a lot left. I am thinking it would make a really great pancake, especially if I put some blueberries in the cake before I turn it. Yum! I am going down to make some breakfast for me. See you all later.
I finished putting in ALL of February's newsletters into Mastercook and then uploaded them to the yahoogroup. I am working on Camp Couragous being added to my website today, and may start on March newsletters.
I went to buy more strawberries and some rhubarb to make more jam (from Preserving the best of Timber Ridge farm but none of the berries looked good and I couldn't find rhubarb. In NYC they sold frozen rhubarb I'm not finding any frozen here....hmmm...we are down to only two major grocery stores though (we used to have many many!) but WM drove all of them out....and of course they aren't selling frozen rhubarb! ARG!
Good morning Girls, It is sunny and not snowing here this morning. A glorious morning.
I started a pair of socks for me in shades of heather pinks and grays. I started yesterday, and had to take them out this morning. My gauge was off, and they were too big for me. I went down to a size 2 needle, and down 1 size as well. It was hard ripping that out, but I did it.
