Boy, do I love Girl Scouts. I've been a leader now for two years (involved parent for far longer), and everyone in my cluster can already tell that I'm a lifer! My girls are amazing, and they remind me of how important it is to go at life with all your weight behind you. Not every woman gets the chance to be a super-hero, but I certainly feel like one when I'm with my troop. It was seeing myself through their eyes that gave me the courage to follow my own dreams.
My favorite things to cook
I like to try new things, but my husband doesn't! It can sometimes be difficult to find a balance when meal planning. Lately, I have been trying to cut my family's meat consumption. Achieving this has Health, Economic, and Environmental benefits. My ultimate goal is to completely eliminate red meats, and to reduce our other meat intake to three times per week. I'm still a long way off!
My cooking triumphs
The most amazing thing happened just this month. I "snuck" spinach into three meals in one week! (Italian wedding soup, Chicken flourentine cassarole, and Southwest chicken eggrolls.)
