Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Eating Green

I LOVE a good salad. One of my favorite things about our Girls Nights In, is the great food we usually (we did chinese take out this month) make and share. I must admit that Beth and I have come up with some pretty FABULOUS salads. Mixing things you would never think of and dressings made from scratch. It's been great fun and tasty too. She's big on fruit in salds so I'm always on the lookout for new recipes to WOW her with. I've found a few at, including one with watermelon, Yummy.
While others are fortunate to create fun salads for their familes, I must eat my salads alone during family meals. The kids eat veggies, just not of the salad variety, but I won't give up. I continue to make new salads and add stuff that I know they like to tempt them. It hasn't worked yet, but I'll keep trying.
In the mean time, I'm a huge fan of bagged salad mixes, or at least the green part. Fresh Express recently came out with 2 new varieties, Tender Ruby™ Reds and Sweet Tender Greens™, these make a great base for a scrumptious salad and by buying the bagged mixes, I avoid wasting precious lettuce that no one else in my house will eat.
