I really enjoy your blog...your "voice"...your transparency is a blessing. I also appreciate these simple menus...I can get wrapped up in the "sides" sometimes..thinking I have nothing to serve and then ending up going out and buying dinner. (Which is almost always unsatisfying and way too expensive) Lately I've been keeping applesauce on hand for a side, too...it's always a hit. Especially with breakfast dinners! Have a blessed day...
