    "This is an ongoing conversation about what we really and truly feed our families day in, day out.
    We are a diverse group here. Because of that, all we ask is respect and tolerance in this thread. Oh and no guilt! We all try and feed our families healthy food but sometimes that box of macaroni & cheese does get eaten.
    This is real life, so we understand that things come up. We are trying our best and enjoying each other's company along the way! " as posted by ladypit

    This thread has been commenced by request from the Recipezaar staff as large threads (over 500 postings) are causing site problems in many of the forums.

    This thread is continued from the following thread- What we Really Feed Our Families 2008

    Sure hope to see all of the regular posters here and new posters will also be welcome to join in too. icon_smile.gif

    wow---we're still rolling through the pages! it's been a long go with this forum.,, so cool!

    thanks for the wave, susie cat---i never quite know when my computer is going to cack, so i do all my online stuff (bills, emails, posts, etc) really quickly and hten i f i have time i read the news or whatever...i definitely check in here when i can. i renewed my membership today so that's a relief. i;ve picked out a new computer but have to wait a few weeks before i can afford to order it. fortunately, we pay up front for it, then my partner's work gives us an interest free loan and we pay it off over two years....but right now i can't even pay up front for it.....sigh. we'll get there .

    i'm planning my thanksgiving menu (yes, i'm doing american thanksgiving b/c we skipped canadian). i'm keeping it pretty simple and am just going to focus on having enough of everything to feed those we invite. i'm also thinking of what i can do ahead of time to make it easier. that's the plan.

    Hi Everybody!
    I am making Japanese Mum's Chicken for supper tonight! It just hit the spot today! I am going to serve it with couscous and peas from my garden!
    I'll let you know what I think tomorrow! #68955
    No deer yet and foul weather coming in. I wish it would just freeze over and then the farmers could combine the corn and beans and then the deer would start to move again. No one has seen any. Why should they when they can lie around and eat corn! icon_lol.gif
    Take care everybody and be well!
    Always, Jelly icon_smile.gif

    oh yeah--i think it was me who made that reference to household food waste---definitely an "average" not the rule. farms and places where there's lots to do with food leftovers (besides eat them yourselves, i mean) would be the places where that average wouldn't apply. we're lucky b/c we live in a city that composts as a part of our municipal system. we don't throw any food in the garbage and the pay back is that in the spring the city gives endless amounts of compost for free all over the city....but what i was talking about was just trying to be more frugal and conscientous about using up leftovers to fill our stomach's and not the compost bin. we don't have any livestock to feed--unless you count my four year olds

    a friend's kid just broke out with chicken pox--we've been around them but i don't know if the contact will have been close enough to expose the boys--i would like them to be exposed b/c i forgo the vaccination. interestingly, she was vaccinated and still got it...i guess that's about a 10 percent chance, i 've heard/ (all of my punctuation keys are breaking--i'm quite amused by the slow demise of my computer--the screen is falling off the bodyof the computer too---)

    Grrlee - hope your computer holds together long enough for you to get the new one! icon_lol.gif I wonder if that kid needed the booster shot (c. pox) and didn't have the anitbodies, like my DD.

    Hello Chef! Interesting looking blog. Maybe you will stick around and chat... not just flog your blog? icon_biggrin.gif icon_biggrin.gif icon_lol.gif icon_lol.gif

    Dinner tonight will probably end up being pizza or something like that. I have to get groceries for lunches so will pick something up at the grocery store.

    David was supposed to be home 45 minutes ago. He was/is over at a friend's place. This is the second time he has been late coming back from this friend's place. I'm not sure how to handle it. Do I restrict privileges? Do I ground him? Do I just talk to him about it (I talked to him about it the first time too)? {sigh} Being a Mom sure can be tough.

    Hi new "Chef". Funny, I just made tomato soup for lunch. I take that same box of soup that's in your picture and dress it up and add to it to make more of it. Stupidly Simple Tomato Soup (Semi-Homemade)

    I originally made it with tofu, but tried it today with cooked chickpeas and it turned out great! My DH (who happened to be up at that time) loved it too. My 5 yo, who used to love soup, will not eat almost any soup lately, even tomato! icon_mad.gif So he had a chunk of summer sausage. Bad mom, but I'm so sick of making stuff that one or the other or all 3 won't eat, even the basic tomato soup out of a box.

    Oh I love Havarti! That sandwich looked absolutely delish! icon_smile.gif
    DH loves tomato soup so maybe next week as I have to get some Havarti. It is such a good cheese and I'm also thinking lavash and a brewski! icon_biggrin.gif
    That is perfect for Friday night by the fire! Yum! Maybe we will go to the city tomorrow. Have to get some plastic for the spa windows anyway.
    Going to watch Survivor tonight! I love this show.
    Maisy has been limping. Kenneled all day and I feel so bad for her. She looks so sad. But if it doesn't look better tomorrow I may have to call the vet. icon_sad.gif
    Take care and have a great evening. I sure hope everyone is feeling better soon.
    Jelly

    p.s. the Japanese Mums Chicken was a hit! I always par-cook my chicken when I put it in recipes. I used chicken thighs and they were juicy not dry! The couscous with peas was a great side.
