Good morning ladies, how are you today?

Kayleigh's not really a help with actual cooking. She does very little of that, she's usually busy with homework when I'm cooking dinner. Ian is more likely to help with cooking. Kayleigh says that she regrets not having really learned to cook yet but just hasn't really had the time to devote. She can do simple things of course like make burgers or pasta. The meat free Monday thing was her idea so she can't have any complaints about the recipes I try I think she intends to be almost solely vegetarian at college.

We've been doing meat free Monday for a couple of years now, per Kayleigh's request.
it is very much an all non-toxic, get rid of as much environmental things than can cause illness type practice and part of it is all about diet and exercise and going to a more natural plant based diet.
That's probably pretty beneficial no matter what; I always think that a lot of small changes can really add up. And, It's definitely nice when you're both (you and dh) on the same page. My dh and I were both vegetarians and "middle of the road" environmentalists when we met (we buy organic food and recycle, but we own two minivans and love our airconditioning! ) so we understood each other but neither of us felt pressured (okay, I did try to convert him to cloth diapers, which I had used with my two girls before I knew dh, but the boys ended up in disposables because dh was not willing to go that far, lol!)....
I hope it helps with your health!
Most of my recent recipes have come from www.skinnytaste.com Its been an awesome site especially because it tends to highlight on the front page in-season dishes/ingredients.
This looks like a great link, thanks for sharing. Just curious, why is your dh trying to go meatless one day a week? We're longtime vegetarians, but in other families I often see the wife or teenage dds trying to push healthier and/or more meatless meals but oftentimes the dh balks. I even know several dhs who claim they can't eat fruits and veggies for one reason or another!
Hi everyone. It's a beautiful day here. Work went smoothly this morning. After work, I met up with a friend for lunch. Then I went to the supermarket (*where I ran into same friend from lunch) and the library. NOw I'm home. I wish I could spend a gorgeous afternoon at the lake but I just have things that I need to take care of.
Kayleigh's been working on summer assignments, working on her senior autobiography, looking into jobs and vet office volunteer opportunities.
Not much else happening here.
