  1. I really liked the
    se meals! A couple of notes about the shopping list – I was at the store wondering what size of spinach to buy, trying to remember what a “stick” of butter equaled (perhaps you could include a cup measurement here?) and I also wondered what kind of corn/hominy. My grocery store didn’t carry hominy so I wondered what kind of corn was the sub as I’ve never used hominy. Turns out I didn’t end up using the corn…….I did make all of the recipes so I’m not sure what I missed? I also didn’t read the bun recipe close enough to know that the wheat gluten was an “optional” ingredient – I probably wouldn’t have bought a whole box of it if I had known it was optional…….
    hoping this is helpful feedback!

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
