    • Glad you like it and REALLY REALLY glad you do not have to go through old e-mails. Now with a click of the mouse you can see them all!!! (you forgot to tell me about the Ceasar sandwiches…..)

  1. We really enjoyed the Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad! I love receiving your blog and I fully intend to make the cranberry bread with bag I got from Aldi that is in my freezer when I have the chance to make it.
