Got bread crumbs? You probably do! Not only do they happen naturally, in the bottom of the bread bag, but they a great use for that last slice or heel of bread.

Well, here is everything you need to know!

White Bean Soup with Cilantro Broth, Green Bean Soup, Cottage Apple Salad, Winter Pea Salad Plate with Tomatoes and Cashews, Whole Wheat Yeast Dinner Buns, and Dessert Apple Slices!

 Our suggestions for your own Sunday Dinner at 3:00...

Who sits around your table is more important than what sits upon it ready to be enjoyed, by all who gather. This was a given in my childhood family home. And truthfully we were no wealthy, so not every dinner was a roast or other special cut of meat, cooked to perfection. But Sunday dinner was always special. Food cooked with love and served with pride, no matter what was dished up into serving bowls and platters. 

In my family, we always enjoyed Sunday dinner, a Sunday drive, and once home again, dessert. To me, in the child's heart that has remained, is the perfect Sunday afternoon! 

The food changes, even the sights, places, and routes enjoyed on our drives changed through the year, but one thing remained the same. Sunday dinner was at 3:00, won't you please join us, in this tradition...

How to Cook Brown Rice in your Instant Pot. A soaked rice method.

Is brown rice on your table often? It is on ours! Since we eat a lot of long-grain brown rice, I wanted to learn to cook it perfectly in my Instant Pot. After a while, it became simple to do, and so delicious to enjoy with meals. Presenting, How to Cook Brown Rice in your Instant Pot, A soaked rice method! Instructions included for both long-grain and short-grain brown rice. 

Easy and delicious! How to Cook Brown Rice in your Instant Pot.

We eat quite a bit of brown rice. Not only good for us but also a good source of fiber and those important B vitamins. As a young wife, I did not even know about brown rice. Rice in my childhood home was always standard white rice. Sadly, I think I threw away a bag of long-grain brown rice that had been given to me those many years ago. At the time I could not imagine cooking rice for the 45 minutes stated on the package. It must have taken another 30 years for me to learn about and enjoy eating whole unprocessed food.
