Salad Days 404-421
Oops.... I'm a little behind in posting, however, I have been successful in getting a salad a day. Here the salads I've enjoyed... even if I can't remember every detail:
May 17 I had a salad with toasted pecans, spinach, tomatoes and a nice dressing. It was very yummy.
May 18 I made a Chinese Chicken salad butt I used ChowMein noodles instead of ramen. I liked it much better than the real way.
May 19 I made a warm spinach and feta salad. I like this salad. It is pretty good.
May 20 I made a taco salad. It really is an old stand by. someday I will find time and energy to really branch out.
May 21 I made a salad with crasens, mixed greens, and apples. It turned out yummy.
May 22 I made Thai salad with cilantro. I like cilantro. I need to add it to more recipes.
May 23 I just had an ordinary green salad with tomatoes.
May 24 was yet an other ordinary Green salad day.
May 25... again... ordinary green salad.
May 26... again... plain salad.
May 27... again... boring green salad.
May 28... again.... I see a pattern here.
May 29... again.... but I added feta and some raisins.
May 30... I made tabbouleh! I love this salad. Hannah and I agree, we should make it every week. June 1 I ate tabbouleh again.
June 2 was graduation and I worked all day long. I didn't have time for eating, so after everything was over we went one of my favorite restaurants and I enjoyed fajitas... salad style.
Today, June 3, my son wanted taco salad... so we made that. This coming week should be interesting. We are going camping. Salads have never been all that good while camping. AND it's going to be cold. Wish me luck!
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 …
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…
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 …
