Gosh! I am getting lazy resorting to two recipes in one week.

Today, I am visiting a certified, professional job coach. Hope that she has some excellent advice for me because I surely need it.

Have a great day, everyone!


  1. Good morning, buddy! And good luck with your job coach! What are you looking for exactly?

    I'm going to try your crouton recipe. It sounds very tasty - we love stuff like that that you can munch on. I bet it's addicting!
    Have a good one - Vickie

  2. Those sound yummy!!

    I hope you learn something new today...

  3. Vickie, if I knew what I was looking for "exactly" I wouldn't have to visit the coach! ;D

    Yes, addicting is a good word for them.

    Robin, thanks...something new is what I need to learn for sure.

  4. Oh Vee...I love these things...when the kids were home, we made these each Christmas and packaged them for little neighborly gifts...

  5. You are making me hungry girl! Those rhubarb squares look so good.
    Don't you wish we could sit down and have a cup of coffee and chat over one of those?
    How are you adjusting to your new do? Was it a hit over the weekend?

  6. Lazy...no way! That looks like my kind of snack.

    Hope your coaching session is beneficial!

  7. Hi Vee!

    I just got back from our trip to Ireland! We had a wonderful time!
    I missed reading your blog and all my other favorites.

    Good luck with the job coach! I hoipe she will be helpful!

    Hugs, Pat

  8. What a great idea!!! I bet these taste amazing in a salad! I'll have to try this....you made me laugh out loud again Vee *thud* :) Good luck with the coaching!! xxoo, Dawn

  9. Oyster crackers... bet they contain a form of lactose.

    Ranch dressing... lactose.

    Not for the Lactose Intolerant.

    I'm sure they are yummy but.. I'm finally losing weight, with my Lactose Intolerance! :-)))

    A certified, professional job coach! WooT! That sounds heavy! Good luck with it.


  10. Good luck with the job coach. Hope you find the perfect job.

  11. Yep, I see myself eating these by the handful. Hold the lettuce, just pass the croutons!

  12. They have people for that? Wow, I learned something new today. What does a job coach do? Are you going to teach? Am I being too nosy?

    The recipe sounds delicious and easy, a must try!

    Best of luck on the job hunt!

  13. Vee, I love recipe ideas that are brand new to me. I had never thought of making croutons with oyster crackers. . I'll be putting them on my grocery list. The recipe looks wonderful.

    Good luck with the coach.

  14. Vee, we can never have enough recipes can we? even if we try them only once, this looks like a good snack to me :).

    Job coach??, I think you could probably teach her a thing or two!

  15. This is a recipe I have been looking for. Thanks for the post! My guys are going to love me this weekend when I get this ready for their 'munchies'.

  16. Those sound good! I bet my kids would enjoy making- and eating- them.

  17. I have made those and I really like them especially in the winter when I am making lots of soups and stews....Mary
