recipe – 5/6 – The Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans LLC


I have just recently started eating shrimp.  I’ve never been a fan of shellfish, fish, crustaceans, or any other word for things that inhabit water.  But, I’m learning, because it really is a low-fat healthy way to get some good protein in you.

I grew up hating meatloaf. It seemed like my family had it ALL THE TIME! I understand now why. Money can be tight when you are trying to feed a family of 8 (I’m one of 6 kids) on a truck driver’s income. My mom needed to make meals that were easy and cheap. Now […]
