Salad Day 128-143

Well it's been a couple weeks since I've posted my salads.  Don't worry.  I've kept up with my goal.  I just have been having trouble finding the time to post all the pictures.

So... here it goes.

August 6

This salad I ate at my cousin's daughter's wedding.  There was so many good things to choose from!

August 7

Home again...  I'm really enjoying hummus as a salad dressing.

August 8

More hummus and garden veggies.  This salad had my first tomato and snow peas from my own garden.

August 9

I made a Couscous salad with quinua.  It turned out real good!

August 10

I went to a friend's house for a BBQ.  She made a yummy potato salad.

August 11

Taco salad for lunch.  It really is a quick and yummy lunch.  I haven't got tired for taco salad.

August 12

We went to the county fair.  My husband was able to find a chicken taco salad... hold the cheese please.  It hit the spot.

August 13

Made a Cobb salad for lunch this day.

August 14

I'm beginning to get more baby greens, zucchini, and carrots from my garden.  Yum!

Just look at these yummy cucumbers and tomatoes from the garden!

August 17

Back to a tuna salad.  A good old stand by.

It was a busy day so I got a salad on the go.  This one came from Dairy Queen.  It had chicken, bacon, tomatoes, lettuce, cabbage, carrots, and honey mustard dressing.

August 19

My husband was kind enough to make me this veggie salad with a little feta and honey mustard dressing.

Another busy day.  This salad had to come from Subway.

This is a family favorite.  Chinese Chicken Salad.

 Ok... So, I'm all updated.  I am still crazy busy for a couple more weeks.  This week Brigadoon opens and and next week I begin rehearsals for Wait Until Dark.  Meanwhile, I I am still prepping for Seminary for the coming year, school for the kids, and trying to get a little canning done.  Talk about a crazy life!  Until the next report...

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 …
