Doug and I have been trying to eliminate waste... OK, I have been trying to eliminate waste and cook more efficiently. I have found some create ideas about how to use left overs creatively. One website is Love Food hate waste, and the other is Recipe Goldmine.
My favorite comes from Recipe Goldmine, in the form of Roast Beef recipes. When we bought a side of beef last year, we had no idea just how much Roast we would be getting.
Roast BeefHappy Cooking!
— Cut into 1/4-inch slices. Dip into beaten egg, then into dry bread crumbs. Fry the slices in oil or butter until hot and golden.
— Put into a crock pot with some canned green chiles, a little cumin, a little garlic, and a little water. Cook until the beef is easily shredded, then use as a taco or burrito filling.
— Top meat slices with cooked onions and peppers and provolone cheese; serve on hoagie rolls.

So... it's that time of year! The time when we all start thinking of what we will put on our feet this winter season. How important is this past-time... very important.
Without it you could possibly spend another season with frozen tootsies.
Each of these fill a certain hole in my closet. I've taken this particular matter very seriously and ordered one of each of these boots so I can try them on with my wardrobe and decide what will make the perfect addition this season. Ordering from Zappos makes this really easy because they have free two-way shipping. Every girls dream!

I wrote this blog a few summers ago- and reading it today I remember what I felt as I saw this girls' life pass away in my review mirror.
Discovering Houston (lost just doesn't seem right), I saw a girl while I driving. I spotted her from far away.
First I saw her face. She looked away, trying desperately to avoid making eye contact with the boy that stood in front of her waving his arms and screaming fiercely.
She crouched low and curled as she pushed her feet fervently against the ground and her body into the chain link fence that cradled her.
She wanted to break through.
Tight lips. She tried to be brave and fight back the tears losing every now and then, he wasn't softened by her sadness.
In my mirror he thumped her chest, she tried not to notice... I couldn't see her anymore, and I was crying.
Hoping it wasn't, but somehow knowing...this was routine.
