  3. Thanks for hosting April! The Granny Plan is moving on to the first steps in building a real food pantry. In keeping with the pantry theme we have strategies to reduce food costs … stuff like thinking of your food in categories. Also I’m sharing my simple summer side dish of raw tomatoes. Food doesn’t need to fancy or difficult to be nutritious!

  5. Hi April! I’ve brought a salad to the party this week! I don’t really feel much like partying at the moment though having just read about how all those people suffered in Boston. Very Sad.

  6. Hello April, I am sharing my recipe for Amaretto Apple Pancakes. This recipe is gluten free, but can be made using “normal” ingredients if you don’t have an issue with gluten.
    Thank you for hosting!
