I’m going to be posting more on almonds, especially how to make your own delicious almond milk, but first here’s a warning about which almonds to avoid buying. Another blogger has thoughtfully provided a fairly comprehensive list of almonds to buy and those to avoid because of unhealthy gassing: http://foodidentitytheft.com/trying-to-avoid-almonds-that-are-gassed-heres-a-little-guide/
I’m still trying to figure out how to put web sites on my blog. Because I can’t find a place to do it in the “behind the scenes” section of WordPress, I’ll post a web site here for the nonce. Do go to http://www.journeywoman.com/ and enjoy all the travel tips. It’s a great site to browse.
Sometimes I get heart-rending pleas for my recipes and just can’t say no. Consequently, to see my “to die for” sweet potato cloverleaf dinner rolls (and so easy to make) go to the recipes page. If you have five minutes to fill, this should do it.
One of the ways my grandmother, and her mother before her, used to eke out a meal for a big family was by making something called seasoned pudding. This was a side to go with the main course.

I can remember going for meals to my grandmother’s and eating from rather small plates. That was another way to make people feel they were getting a good plateful!
Today I started my volunteer job teaching ESL again! I was surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Didn’t realize how much I missed it. Hopefully my new “students” enjoyed the session as much as I did. Now my hours and days will be filled with working out ideas and lesson plans, checking out web sites, and collecting pictures. Terrrrrr-rific…..!
