I've had a certain teenager who has had nothing but complaints about the menus lately, so this week has been declared: MOM'S WEEK OFF That's right-kitchen is closed. Mom will shop, when given a list, and provided the items on that list fall into the budget and into our healthy eating guidelines (loosely). But otherwise, Mom is on cooking vacation this week. Tonight, my lovely daughter prepared chef's salads. They were good. She did not realize they were quite so labor intensive, but she made it through. I believe tomorrow involves nachos of some kind.
