    Lurker speaking up! I have been away for about 2 weeks on a WORKING

    vacation of sorts. Long story - death in the family and mother moving.

    I returned home to find 165 e-mails of all kinds. I spent most of the

    afternoon going through them. The ones I enjoyed the most were the ones

    with all the recipes from others in the group and Liss. Oh, what a

    wonderful time I had looking at all the recipes and trying to decide

    what to keep. Even for us working people, homecooking from time to time

    is frugal and fun. When I'm not at work during dinner the 4 of us still

    sit down to a family style meal because it's about the only time we are

    all together in one place. Are there other people/families that still

    do this? Just wondering if it is a "lost" tradition. Anyway, I enjoyed

    the recipes! If the subject doesn't interest me, as with some others, I

    know where the delete key is.
