Menus and Columbia Restaurant Salad Recipe

In searching the web looking for blogs by older people, I came acress this post by Nicholas Carr entitled "Blogging: a great pastime for the elderly".  He talks about a survey that says young people think blogging is uncool and only older people do it.  Oh well, everything always seems to be out before I am in.

I did get my menus planned for this week.  They are;
  1. Pinto Beans/Cornbread/Columbia Restaurant Salad
  2. Old Fashioned Beef Stew/Rice/Green Peas/Pear and Cheese Salad
  3. Pot Roast with Carrots and Potatoes/Broccoli and Cheese Sauce/Canned Tropical Fruit Salad
  4. Chicken Dressing Casserole/Quick Candied Yams/Green Beans/Fruit Salad
This allows for leftovers and for eating out at least once. The Columbia Salad Restaurant Salad is a signature recipe from a restaurant here in Florida.  It is very good.
