Ken's Minestrone Soup
Ran across this recipe while looking for something with green beans in the ingredients. Fabulous recipe. We had never had a minestrone soup. I did some research and found that minestrone is basically a clean out the fridge soup and I set to emptying the fridge!! My big kids liked this but the little ones balked at the chunks of veggies (like they always do). Everyone still ate though and the older set really enjoyed it. Changes made: Skipped the cannellini because we didn't have any, used fresh green beans and used real home made chicken broth.

Carrot Cake III
Loved this and made it to take to a potluck but ended up eating it all ourselves and skipped the potluck. Changes made: Used coconut oil instead of vegetable oil. Used freshly ground wheat flour and omitted the pecans. It was very dark due to my changes but tasted wonderful.

Moo Goo Gai Pan
The kids and I were craving Chinese food like we used to get from our favorite Chinese fast food place. Since we are trying to save money my new mantra has been "Let's make it at home." This was a huge hit! All 12 children (well the baby didn't eat, he doesn't have teeth) raved about it. This may end up being a weekly meal!! Changes made: Omitted rice wine, we couldn't find it. Omitted the water chestnuts beause we don't like them. Omitted the canned mushrooms because hey, we live in the rural Ozarks and ethnic cuisine has not arrived here yet. Roasted a chicken and threw the pieces in at the end. Doubled the sauce. Next time I'll add more fresh veggies like snow peas or zucchini.
