I think it is about time for another eating out post, and I picked one of the most common fast food restaurants around – McDonald’s. Like many restaurants the options aren’t super low sodium, but Joe can manage to work them into his diet in a pinch. I have laid out a couple of breakfast options, some lunch choices, and a couple of desserts here. Continue reading “Eating Out: McDonald’s”

Mashed potatoes have to be one of my favorite foods, and I have been working on perfecting my mashed potato recipe since I was a teen.

(You can even half this recipe and mix it in a bread machine if you’ve got one of those. It works great that way.) Continue reading “Favorite White Bread”

Subway happens to be one of those franchises that you can find everywhere – tiny towns included. This makes it a great option for those of us who live in rural areas, or happen to occasionally travel through rural areas. Continue reading “Eating Out: Subway”
