Need A Quick Meal?

May 25 2012 |

   I don't know about you, but I am busy planting flowers, tending my garden and mowing the lawn.  Each evening I have less and less time to get dinner on the table at a reasonable hour.  If you can identify with this, you'll want to stock up on my meal and soup mixes.  Most of these mixes can be prepared in 25 minutes or less AND without heating up your kitchen.  Add a salad and perhaps some bread you've baked earlier (from one of my delicious bread mixes) and you have a fantastic made-from-scratch meal.  

   Order 5 family size meal and/or soup mixes and I will throw in a mini meal* or mini soup mix* for you to try for free!!! (Offer good 5/25/12 through 6/30/12.)  *Mix chosen by me.

 The recently opened Culinary Mill Market & Deli at: 401 E.

A bowl of homemade soup and a warm slice of homemade bread - two of my favorite things!!!!!  Once I have both in hand, I love curling up on the sofa to watch a good movie.  In the winter, on about any given Saturday afternoon, my husband builds a fire in the fireplace while I get the soup and bread ready.  This week our movie date will be Sunday and we are going to watch "The Help".  I recently finished reading the book and can't wait to see the movie.  We are going to enjoy some Vegetarian Black Bean Chili and Cornmeal Yeast Bread.  MMM MMM, looking forward to it!!!!  Stock up on SOUP & BREAD MIXES so you are ready for a movie date or a blizzard, whichever comes first.   HAVE A BLESSED NEW YEAR!!!!

Remember your boss, coworkers, mail & paper delivery persons, teachers, neighbors and friends.  Give the gift of food, which is most always welcomed by everyone.  I have a lot of cute gift ideas or you can bring a favorite container and we can fill it together.
