Come here Wednesdayand give me a hug!  Ahhhh thank you.  Happy Wednesday to you!

Sheperd’s pie without beef? A neat concept.  Will it work?  Sure why not? What about using lentils as the base for the sheperd’s pie and adding some onion, corn and black beans?  Doesn’t sound terrible does it?

I really am getting pumped up about this process.   I was even so excited that [...]
