The Weekly Menu Nov. 13, 2017

Weekly Menu Time Again! Hello friends.  Well this week is going to be nice and quiet.  The calm before Thanksgiving and celebrating my husband’s birthday.  I’m getting excited about pulling out all the Christmas decor and getting festive, too.

The Weekly Menu Oct. 23, 2017

What’s On the Menu this week? Well we’re making a lot of pasta and meatballs this week, because I’ve had trouble with my teeth and I’m searching for soft foods that are easy to chew. I’ve got a temporary crown on one side and a missing molar on the other side, so eating has been a little difficult.  I should be getting the permanent crown...

Glyphosate & The Weekly Menu Sept. 11, 2017

Let’s Talk About Glyphosate This week I want to talk a little more about glyphosate (the active ingredient in Monsanto’s weed killer Round-Up) and GMOs. Glyphosate is designed to kill weeds and normally sprayed on genetically modified  organisms (GMOs) who are modified to be resistant to it.  In this case plants like corn, soy, and beet sugar. Glyphosate targets and blocks an essential pathway in...

Mom’s Favorite Summer Pasta Salad

Summer Pasta Salad This summer pasta salad reminds me of my mom and summer and neighborhood block parties growing up.  It was her go-to signature potluck dish, which probably came off the back of a bottle of Kraft Italian salad dressing. Regardless, it was always a hit and so simple to make.  Just cooked pasta, avocado, sliced pepperoni and classic Italian dressing!  Tossed together and...

Versatile Goat Cheese Alfredo Sauce

Why make a Goat Cheese Alfredo Sauce? Besides the fact that it is just really, really good… For people with casein digestion issues, it may add a whole new option to your dinner menu if you can tolerate goat’s milk! The protein casein in goat’s milk is processed, and likely digested differently, than casein from cow’s milk. You can read a little more about that in...
