Welcome to the start of another week and another menu plan!  We got to turn the calendar another page to March this week even though our weather here sure didn’t seem too spring-like.  I really hope the old saying of “in like a lion, out like a lamb” applies this year because I think we have had more snow in the last week than we have had all winter.  I am ready for some sunshine and warmer temps!

This past Tuesday, I experienced another first for me.  Two of my co-workers and I have joined a local homemakers club and Tuesday night was our first meeting/demonstration.  The subject was all things vanilla and our president actually made homemade vanilla extract for us and then she and a few others used this in recipes for us to try.  Here is a couple of photos from that night:

Next month is all about healthy/alternative diets and I am presenting a short demo about lactose free ice creams.  Wish me luck!  I am usually not comfortable in front of crowds but I hope to pull it off without too much drama.  LOL!

I have a few new recipes this week along with some old faithfuls.  The peanut butter pudding cake didn’t get made last week because I needed to work on a recipe for the upcoming edition of the Lady Behind The Curtain’s Dessert Challenge so the PB cake is back on the list this week.  Have a great and blessed week!

Beef stew with noodles (new)
