Another news story is in the works…Will link up to it when it becomes available!
And here is the latest newspaper article about the big Walmart win! “Centerville woman”…that’d be me!
If you are in Dayton, I will be on the Fox morning show, Monday at 7:15 am-ISH! Depending on what happens in the world overnight!

YUMMY week – I haven’t had sweet and sour in ages – sounds great!

I didn’t know you lived in Dayton–I was just in Centerville at my Aunt Karen’s for Christmas! Did you grow up there?

I live in southern California…I just left Columbus, Ohio after spending 3 WEEKS THERE…I really really miss Kroger. I’m wondering if the Kroger coupons would be honored here at Albertsons?…I should check into that. I know my Albertsons’ card works at the checkout…or vice versa…whatev…I enjoy your blog…I just discovered it…great timing for me….keep posting!!!!!

Sounds great!

How do you make your Dominican Rice and Beans?


Sherry January 5, 2009 at 12:34 am

Mrs. Pear asked what I was going to ask! What spices do you use?

Oh! Can you please post the recipe for the rice and beans? I have been to the dominican several times and have had them and they are SO good! I can’t seem to find a recipe that is the same as the one I have had there so many years ago

LOVE beans and rice. We do missions in Cuba every summer and I eat beans and rice 2 meals a day every day!! I have a great recipe for Puerto Rican beans and rice that a friend gave me….mmmmm!

So excited to find your blog!
