Salad Say 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, and 58

Monday is a busy day.  I teach voice lessons starting around 11:30 and I continue until around 8.  Hence, I didn't take the time to go crazy creating the yummiest salad ever.  I did use the last of the yummy chips that my friend Rachel got me.  That was nice.

Although I was going to have a busy day, I made a salad topped with my home canned tuna.  I sure enjoy that stuff.  I hope I can afford it when it comes into season again this summer for canning.

Wednesday I made some coleslaw and added apples.  I also ate a "liquid" salad.  I just got a terrific blender and made a delicious green smoothie with spinach, kale, coconut milk, carrots, apple, and cucumber.

Thursday and Friday I was back at the HS for the final performances of Little Shop of Horrors.  This makes for incredibly busy day.  I ended up getting a salad from Subway both days.

Saturday was the busiest day of the week.  I left my house early for a Saturday.  I went to auditions for a new project, Brigadoon at a local theater.  I left from the auditions and went straight to the HS for closing night of Little Shop (when I get some pictures, I'll post about that set and the show).  The sad thing is, I didn't eat all day.  My cute little 8 year old made me an omelet at 8 in the morning... then nothing.  It wasn't until after the show and after strike, that I finally got to eat something.  The cast party was a taco bar.  I was able to find some lettuce, corn chips, and tomatoes to fake a taco salad.  It was rather dry... but hey!  It was a salad.

Sunday was busy with church and call backs for Brigadoon.  My sweet hubby made spaghetti (I got yummy quinua noodles) and salad for dinner by the time I got home.

Yesterday was Monday... a busy teaching day for me.  I only had time for lettuce and dressing.  Maybe today I will be able to get a yummy salad together for lunch.  I will have to eat on the run for dinner.  I teach from 2-6 and then I have to run to our first rehearsal of Brigadoon.

At least I am still on a roll.

Book of Mormon Study... Title page and testimony of the witnesses

According to the Prophet Joseph Smith, “the title-page of the Book of Mormon is a literal translation, taken from the very last leaf, on the left hand side of the collection or book of plates, which contained the record which has been translated, the language of the whole running the same as all Hebrew writing in general; and that said title page is not by any means a modern composition, either of mine or of any other man who has lived or does live in this generation” (History of the Church, 1:71).

That means it’s scripture too! That is why today I start my Book of Mormon study with the title page.

I am part of the House of Israel. My children and their children are a part of the House of Israel. This Book is written for me and for them.

I love that the Title page declares that this book is a “gift”… now this book I am marking will become a “gift” for my grandson. How cool is that? I feel like Nephi, writing my testimony of Jesus Christ and of the gospel plan as I study God’s word so …

An Open Letter to Those Who Hate The School Dress Code

I have noticed a ton of resistance to dress codes in schools.  I have something to say... get over it.  
A dress code is not about body shaming.  It is not about control.  It's not about taking away individuality. The dress code is not about making social divisions.  It is not about taking away individual rights.
A dress code is about keeping a professional environment where real work happens.  Contrary to popular belief, woman don't get to wear whatever they want when ever they want in "the real world." Every profession has some kind of dress code.  Nurses, doctors, real estate brokers, vets, and even McDonald's workers have a dress code.  Even farmers and day labors wear clothing appropriate to the work they do.  School is a professional environment where the student's "job" is to be the student - to learn - and the teachers' job is to open the possibilities in young minds and to create an environment where people - all people - can learn.  Th…

Once-a-Slightly Over Month Cooking

Today may be the last day of the year, but it was the first day of the month around the Boyack house.  Today was Once-a-Month-Cooking day.  The funny thing is that it usually ends up lasting longer than a month.  Our last big cooking day lasted from September to now.  The thing is, I don't always pull from the freezer.  Weekend we cook from scratch.  However, with my voice lessons in late afternoons and sometimes play practice or performance I am too tired to think about dinner.  Making dinner ahead saved me so much money from September to Christmas that I was able to pay for half of Christmas from the savings from the food budget.  Plus, we had much healthier meals!

After collecting which recipes we wanted to make, and making a shopping list, John headed to the store around noon.  We started the cooking and assembly around 1:00 and ended all the cooking by 7:00.  In that time we made 35 dinners.  We have the fix-in's in the cupboard to make 15 more quick and easy meals.  We …
