The weather in the Midwest is interesting this week.  It’s spring.  No, it’s winter.  It’s spring.  No, it’s winter.  It just can’t seem to make up its mind.  I guess that’s typical for March.  But I’m ready for spring!!! This week's menu includes some of our favorites and no new recipes. I didn’t have time to look through my books and magazines to find new ones.  Throwing together a menu with … [Read more...]
