Salad Days 376-390

April 18 I made Coleslaw.  It is surprising how quickly you can make a little bowl of coleslaw.  Still.... it's tasty and it does the trick of getting veggies in the day.
April 19 i made an Anti-pasta salad.  It was ok... not my favorite.  I won't even bother telling you how I made it.

April 20 I made a Grilled onion and Mushroom Salad.  I like this one.  I sauteed an onion and a box of sliced fresh mushrooms.  I added that to a bed of salad greens and a sliced tomatoes.  It's a tasty one!

April 21 I had a Subway salad.  I got the club.  I had oil and vinegar as a dressing.  Sure miss Ranch of Bleu Cheese dressing though.

April 22 I had a plain green salad.  Boring.  But hey!  I still got a salad even if I hadn't been to the store yet.

April 23 I had a Taco Salad.  In many ways, I'd rather have a creamy enchilada... but I resist.  I eat a Mexican flavored salad instead.

April 24 I had salad greens topped with Italian dressing and a tablespoon of Feta cheese.

April 25 I had a chicken salad with salad greens, toasted pecans and Italian dressings.

April 26 I was working on the Honk set and my friend got me a chicken salad with Raspberry vinaigrette for Burgeville.  It hit the spot.

April 27 I was still working long hours with Honk, had a Stake Activity with Lillian and didn't have time to eat.  I caved and got a salad from subway.

April 28 I went to a restaurant with my hubby.  I got a Fajita salad... Well I made it a salad.  We shared the Fajitas.

April 29 my daughter helped me make a yummy chicken pasta salad.  It was so yummy I ate it April 30th too!  We used rice noodles, veggies, and an oil and vinegar dressing.

May 1 I had a Chef salad with Honey Mustard dressing.

May 2 I had an Asparagus salad.  I like asparagus... but I wasn't too impressed with the salad.

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 …
