Pizza and Crew 6

Several weeks ago the boys in Crew 6 planned out things that they wanted to do. They like food and the topic of Gourmet Cooking came up. I am game, there is no reason why they should not learn a little about cooking and enjoy eating. The first meeting where they cooked they made hot […]

Lunch Time Fun

At work a few of us are excited to see lunch time come. We quickly eat lunch and then head outside. As for the lunch itself, I have learned to subsist on Lean Cuisine and other sub 350 calorie lunches. This type of lunch does two things. One, I have lost 10 pounds in the […]

For starter I have used 1847 Oregon Trail Sourdough Starter for many years. For many years Carl Griffith shared his starter and it is now shared by his friends. They also […]
