I'm a Midwesterner transplanted to the Deep South, then here to the Center of the US. I love to cook and am pretty much self-taught (okay, PBS-taught). I have been budget cooking since college, and freezer cooking for several years. I keep meal plans/menus on calendar sheets, and find that sometimes I plan a whole month at a time! (Usually when I have a very full freezer or pantry that needs to be cleared out.) Love my kitchen appliances, like my crock pots, food processor, slicer, etc., but love to revert to hands-on cooking, using my pots, knives, graters, etc. I have a DH and two school-age DSs. We enjoy a traditional lifestyle. I am a trained journalist, and enjoy a bit of wordsmithing. I read furiously, especially during the summer -- my library card gets quite a workout. One of these days I'll write that great novel. Meanwhile, check out my blog at: HTTP://OMAHACHEAPTHRILLS.WORDPRESS.COM
