[I told Laura I was going to do this post months ago. Sorry, Laura! Life got in the way of, well, everything.]

I first met or even heard of Laura from Hey What’s for Dinner Mom? (@whats4dinnermom) when she was a panelist at BlogHer Food ’10 in San Francisco. I was captivated by her. She spoke about the sorry state of school lunches with an alternating anger and optimism, and all the time, her humor was in evidence. I remember her saying her kids had never had Ranch dressing. I remember a slight twinge of envy at her pioneer-woman ways. (No, not THAT pioneer woman.)

I’m a city girl at heart. Born and raised in the suburbs of the ’60s-and-’70s navy-base lifestyle, I am now a happy urbanite. Still, if you read Laura for long, I dare you not to think it would be totally cool to:

or maybe forage for fiddleheads in Alaska.

Laura is a lovely, hardworking woman with a strong heart and a sharp mind. You should check out her writing. And if you have the soul of a bargain-hunter the way she and I do, you should stop in on Sundays for the Penny Worthy Project.

Thank you, Laura, for caring about the world, your loved ones, and your bloggy friends. I for one appreciate it.

For decades, the TV industry has been dominated by the bundle model: Consumers pay anywhere from $50 to over $100 a month cheap oakleys for hundreds or thousands of channels, no matter which ones they actually watch. ESPN is not typically included. (The network is included in Dish Network’s lower cost streaming TV service called Sling but Sling’s subscribers don’t count toward ESPN’s total subscriber figure.)Smith also was expected to be a first round pick before he tore two ligaments in his left oakley sunglasses outlet knee during Notre Dame’s loss to Ohio State in the Fiesta Bowl. Following the advice of doctors at Notre Dame and agent Eugene Parker, who passed away from cancer on March 31, Smith had Cowboys team doctor Dan Cooper perform the surgery.It has only been awarded 21 times, and two thirds of the people who earned it died in the process. It was initially reported that Yadav had as well, but it turns out that they just mistook him for someone less badass. Or they just figured no real human being could survive a broken leg, shattered arm and 10 15 fresh bullet holes in one sitting.The 21 year old US Tour rookie returned a five under par 65 to finish 15 under overall on 195, two strokes ahead of Els (66) at the Waialae Country Club. Americans Robert Gamez (65), Briny Baird (67) and Chris DiMarco (69) shared third place on 200, one ahead of Japan’s Shigeki Maruyama (69).Still, the throwback nba jerseys hope of a glimpse at the Pittsburgh Steeler quarterback, his new bride and the dozens of team oakley outlet luminaries who turned out for the ceremony was enough for Dolly Metz to sit in a car complete with Steelers covers on the headrests in a nearby parking lot with the windows down in 90 degree heatIndeed, the confusion goes all the way back to the 19th century, when a largely antagonistic Sydney media looked down its nose at what it decided was called Australian rules. That’s a name, though, which was never officially codified, either. The National Football Council, formed in 1906, declared our game to be Australian football.The Steelers have been honored with 7 Defensive Player fake ray bans of the Year awards since 1972. Their style of play has consistently been aggressive, wholesale Jerseys fast, and blitz happy. While that style of play poses some risk, it also puts a tremendous amount of pressure on their opponents which can lead to turnovers.I paid about $250 for it this year. I buy it for the Bills games. That’s it. I don’t need add ons like the Red Zone and Fantasy Zone channels. Just the Bills.USA TODAYBuffalo Bills becoming just like Rex Ryan and that might not be a good thingYou advertise that “only DirecTV brings you every out of market game live, every Sunday.” Until now, I always fake oakleys figured that meant if the game were available on one of my local stations it would not be on DirecTV.

I run The Mom Food Project, which was born out of love for my mom and a desire to preserve the recipes of my childhood, which didn't actually exist in written form until I quizzed my mom and wrote the recipes down.

  1. My husband’s grandmother is an awesome cook. She cooks most everything from scratch. For wedding presents for all of her many grandchildren she sent each couple a few recipe cards with some of her recipes she thought were probably their favorites that she cooked. A great way to pass on and preserve them!
