Re: Food 'n' whatnot

M will chunk up about 5-6 medium potatoes, two onions, and a couple of carrots. Then he drop them in the crockpot with some spice and some chicken and lets it cook all day. Delish!

Re: Lent this year

Thanks, Laura; that was a big help. I'm still trying to figure out healthier meals for us that don't consist of the same foods every night. The meal planning is the worst part. ;-)

Re: Poll: Which character on The Wire are you?

I don't know if anyone here has ever watched Numb3rs (FBI agent and his math genius brother solve crimes and make funny talk with their dad Judd Hirsch)...
