Happy Birthday! I'm glad you took a blogging holiday to enjoy your special day.

Emily said...

You eat super healthy. I know, I've eaten at your house....so what's up with the ramen? Is it for a recipe? Was this to placate Elijah for all those lentils you've been feeding him???


Maria D. said...

Happy birthday! I hope it was a good one!

Gayle said...

Yeah, the ramen was to placate my teenager. He'll probably eat it everyday for lunch until it's gone.


Erica said...

I hope you had a great birthday. I love your blog, thanks for all the hard work.

Cheri said...

I've been following your blog for a while now and finally am joining in. I do not do anywhere as well as you, but try to stay under $60. We do not have the discount stores you have in your area. I just get to shop the sales with coupons. Thanks for the encouragement every week!

Cracking up at the ramen.

Just bought some the other day for the first time in ages. When 4:45 rolled around and I realized Josh was going to be home and I'd been playing Scrabble on Facebook all day, I loved that I had a meal in 2 minutes. Healthy or not...TWO MINUTES!!! =)

Happy Birthday!!! I'll go get a cookbook down and have a recipe ready for Friday. I have a great Sunflower Slaw that calls for Ramen. I love that cabbage is so cheap, this makes a great potluck recipe.

Happy Birthday!

Happy Belated Birthday!! :)
God bless,

Happy Birthday!!

Christy said...

Gayle, Thanks for teaching me about the "Click here to display links" on the older recipe exchanges.
I thought I missed my chance to snag a recipe I found from and earlier week when the links weren't being displayed. Now I know about it it seems kinda obvious, lol.
