I'm the single parent of 10 kids. Currently at home are six developmentally disabled young adults, four have been with me since 1982. The other two guys have joined us in the last few years. Then there are 16 you twins. When people hear about my family, one of the most frequent responses is, How do you stand all that cooking? My response is, That's my favorite part! And, for the most part, this is true. I have a captive audience that LOVES my cooking. (It bothers me a little that I gat the same response, however, when I serve a soup I've slaved for hours over as when I serve Campbell's Chunky, but I'll take all the compliments that are thrown my way! My goal this year is to find some healthy meals that don't cost a fortune and incorporate them into our menus. All our favorites now resemble the things Paula Deen makes, complete with butter and sour cream. We also enjoy lots of casseroles and cheese dishes, but whole pieces of meat, brown rice and veggies haven't been a mainstay. Salad entrees leave everyone looking at me like, What's coming next? I love RZ and have so much fun tiring different ideas. I am just starting to post so I can use the shopping list option. That is just so cool!
