We honor and thank all those who have served and sacrificed for our freedom on this Veteran's Day!
(A blast from the past - I originally posted this digi-collage on my blog all the way back in 2006!)

Last night I went out with some girlfriends to celebrate my birthday. Never mind that my birthday was over two months ago. That's just the way we roll! Actually, I don't think we have celebrated the birthdays in this group of friends anywhere near our actual birthday dates in years!
Almost better than the gifts is the packaging of the gifts from these creative girls.
This one is my favorite because the paper bow is just some packing material tied with seam binding and a handmade tag. Who would have thought to use packing paper to decorate the outside of a package? I usually save everything and I know I have gotten things shipped in this kind of brown paper. Now I wish I would have saved some of it!

This weekend I finally got around to cleaning out my pantry because I was running out of room to store things. I threw out any expired food items I found, donated a bag things to the food pantry, and the rest I decided to cook up to eat! (Gee, I wonder why I didn't do this sooner?)This bread is a Beer Bread mix that I bought at a home party a while back. There's something about the smell of baking bread in the fall. Tomorrow I'm going to make a pot of soup to go along with the bread.
This morning I decided to make a veggie omelet using some of the green peppers my daughter gave me from her garden.
And I found a box of hash brown potatoes in the pantry, so I cooked them up to go along with the eggs.
In the summer I like to keep a package of pasta salad mix on hand to make a quick side dish when it's warm outside. Well, I found TWO packages in the pantry, so I prepared both of them to serve with my lunches and dinners for the next few days. In fact, this will taste great with the leftover panko-breaded tilapia and sweet potato that I'm having for dinner tonight. So what are you serving for dinner tonight?
