    This is so creative, Wardee! Thank you for thinking of this and assembling a team and then putting it all on the calendar! I’m excited…just what I need to encourage me in the kitchen over the next few couple of months; maybe even find some new family favorites!

    Thank you!!!

      Jill — Actually, this was all Donielle’s idea! I’m thankful to be a part of it, because of how fun it will be and how helpful for all of us. I’m really glad you’re excited about it, too!

    This is a great idea!!! I totally plan to read every bit of this, and I plan to try as many recipes as possible looking for new favorites too. But my normally sweet husband has threatened me within an inch of my life if I mess with our 25 year-old holiday traditions, and that esp includes the recipes for his favorite dishes! (And I figure that my older children would probably finish me off if he left any room to do so.) While I am of course being funny about the threats, I learned long ago that I was not honoring my husband by moving faster in changing things than he was comfortable with, or by changing some of our holiday traditions without his input. SO I will use a healthier sugar, but I will still make his favorite shoo-fly pie. We are getting a free range turkey from a friend this year that we are real excited about! But hot chocolate will still be on the menu; granted I will make it from the best milk that I can rather than the rancid powdered stuff of old, but there is just no getting around a few mini marshmallows on top. I like to tell the children that we will do the best we can with each and every day, but we have room for a few treats, a few traditions, that are not of the stuff we eat on an everyday basis. Its not what we do occasionally, its what we do everyday. And as our tastes change, sometimes we no longer want the things of old just the same way, and that is okay too!! Please note that I am not and have never dealt with food allergies or the many other issues I read about that some of you face; I am simply on a path to eat the healthiest we can, one step at a time, and this is the way we make it work in our family!

      Pat — Lovely thoughts! Thank you! I am totally on board with you and applaud you for how you balance honor for your husband and love for your family.

    Would it be okay to take it from the cold yogurt in the frig? You know the whey from the top (the liguid) of the yogurt? Thank you
