In the first three years of our cats life she never threw up a hair ball.
Now in the last two weeks I'd say I have been the unfortunate one to find five...hum, what is the right word...piles, blobs, of hairballs.

Should we be worried about this?


Here are a few of the tasty things we ate in Missouri.


1 envelope Lipton® Recipe Secrets® Onion Soup Mix
4 all-purpose potatoes, cut into large chunks (about 2 lbs.)
1/3 cup vegetable oil

1. In large bowl, toss all ingredients until evenly coated.

2. In 13 x 9-inch baking or roasting pan, arrange potatoes.

3. Bake at 425°, uncovered, stirring occasionally, 35 minutes or until potatoes are tender and golden brown.

Sister Sue puts the potatoes, oil, and Lipton soup in a large zip-lock bag to mix.
They turned out great!

The other meal we had that was easy and very satisfying Ceasar Salad with Oven Baked Crispy Chicken Strips.

Now I always thought one had to use a gazillion ingredients to make Ceasar Salad...and a hairy anchovie. But no. Here is how Sue made this meal.

Tear up romaine lettuce into a big bowl. Pour on a as much bottled Ceasar Salad dressing as needed to coat the lettuce. Add croutons.

Bake Schwans Crispy Chicken Strips for 20 minutes (turning once).

Serve with Diet Dr. Pepper.

Just kidding....but ya know...it's just the way it is for me.

This was just soooo good. I have already made this for our family.
I purchased the Annie's Ceasar Salad Dressing. The dressing had very nice flavor.
Emma chose the croutons.

Sue- What salad dressing did you use?

The ribs were amazing too! But a little complicated for me to duplicate. In other words I can't remember the name of the rub... or the sauce.

But they we perfect in every way :o)

My favorite thing to eat in the summer is sliced tomatoes and cottage cheese.
It makes my mouth water just thinking of it!

Eating Well Magazine has some great looking recipes again this month.
Pick it up if you get a chance.
It also has an excellent food pyramid inside.

Have you tried any new and easy recipes lately?
Care to share them?

I know what I am having for dinner :o)

Encourage one another,
