Have you ever heard of the 40 bags in 40 days challenge? It's popular during Lent. The idea is very simple: over the course of 40 days, remove 40 bags of "stuff" from your house. Sell it, donate it, toss it, recycle it... it doesn't matter, as

I'm a stay at home mom with a terrific husband and three sweet sons. I come from a big, crazy, loving family and am very close to my five sisters. Family is the best.
My favorite things to cook
I like to make anything. I like to bake and cook and I especially love making new (to me) ethnic foods and baking bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's chicken & rice soup with biscuits, Christmas baking, the "nothing but homemade" rule for family gatherings.
My cooking triumphs
I am a good baker. Not cakes and cookies type baking, but I do well with yeast breads and enjoy thinking up new bread recipes.
My cooking tragedies
We don't talk about those- it makes me cranky.
