I recently spent several days with my mom at her sister's house while my uncle was in the hospital. She would put her dirty dishes in the sink instead of the empty dishwasher right next to it. That one little thing clued me in to why her house tends to be a bit messy (not dirty, however). Tidying as I go comes naturally to me and it just seems like a waste of time and effort to carry one's dishes to the kitchen and put them in the sink rather than the dishwasher (merely one example).

Our niece may be coming to visit this weekend and I was starting to stress a bit about the acres of grass which need to be mowed and various tasks which I am behind on indoors. Thanks for the reminder of what a home means. We may not get everything done but we'll turn on some music, I'll cook something fabulous and we'll welcome her into our home.

We ate entirely vegetarian for a year and since that time have generally limited meat to a couple of times a week. I have a number of really good vegetarian recipes on my blog:

Last night I made a lentil rice casserole which we then use as taco filling in fried corn tortillas. My husband says he likes that just as much as when I make them with beef. I also adapted a family favorite, green chili sour cream enchiladas, which is now made without chicken and no cream soup - we all like it better than the original. As far as the recipes on my blog, check out "Black Bean Enchiladas", "Black Bean Patties with Corn Relish...", and "Vegetable Soup with Parmesan Dumplings" for a start.
