Let's stop food waste.....creative ideas 2

myself..... When I loose money, say a 5 or 10 dollar bill
that ...

Story
Tagline
Hard worker, good friend to many and very happy married to my husband and best friend.
Introduction
Previously I was a SAHM, who returned to the work force 25+ years ago. My husband and I are returning to the homemade ways we grew up with in the comfort of our home and garden, as we plan for retirement. We prefer food from scratch and everything else in our lives to be just as honest. We work side by side, the recipes, ideas and photos shared are from us both and that is why it's call Our Sunday Cafe. Thanks for visiting!
