Happy New Year- Newest Meal Plan

Good morning! Happy New Year! I’m so excited about 2011!  We got a fridge/ wipe-able menu planner in the mail the other day, and Erica, My 10 year old wrote what she would like each day for dinner:


The translation is: Chile, chile, soup, taco soup, dominoes pizza, cooked broccoli and chili, and Nacho’s.  Glad to see she likes Chile!

Anyway, here is the ACTUAL meal plan for the first week of January, with plenty of fruits and vegetables!

Just anted to say Thanks. I started following your blog just before the holidays and it really is an answer to my prayers. I strive to cook healthy meals for my family but struggle with finding new dishes we will all enjoy. You’ve done the majority of my work for me and now I can concentrate on other stuff … like catching up on my favorite blogs 🙂 Thanks!

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
