I just made a salad for dinner from my own, homegrown lettuce. No, I don't live on a farm, or even on a great deal of land. In fact, while I do have a small backyard garden, I didn't grow this lettuce in the ground. I grew this tender, delicious lettuce in a pot on my backyard deck, as you can see by the picture above.

Oatmeal Pie - a Very Old Recipe
Have you ever heard of Oatmeal Pie? I ran across this recipe in my Mom's recipe book a couple of months ago and it looked interesting, so I decided to try it. Considering the appearance of the piece of paper it was written on, it has to be very old. It turned out to be really delicious, even better than I thought it would be. I decided to make one this afternoon, so I thought I would share it with you all, in case you wanted to try it.
How to Make Homemade Gatorade
Now that summer has arrived, so has the hot weather. If you work, or play, out in the heat then you will sweat, this is an unavoidable fact of life. Sweating is the body's mechanism to get rid of excess heat, but you also lose fluids and it is very important to replace them. The healthiest and most efficient way to do this is a drink with electrolytes to prevent dehydration. This is why you see athletes drinking Gatorade during the game at sporting events. Gatorade replaces electrolytes and prevents dehydration when a person is sweating constantly for long periods of time, like when playing ball, or working outside.
Have you see the price of Gatorade? Not exactly cheap, so I decided to try making my own. It's pretty simple to do, you can even mix the powder and package it to mix with water when you want to drink it. The recipe is very easy.
