Hello all, My user id is SwoR. The wo is "wife of" because of all the things I am I like being a wife most...with being a mother, a close second. I am married (since I was barely 17) and have been married for almost 19 years now. My husband and I have two wonderful teenagers, both boys. We are simple people, not finacially wealthy but so very rich in every other way. We have all we need, a lot of what we want and the most basic necessity in life......JOY!! I love to study the scriptures and use the knowledge that is there and forget what men say. Example, we eat salt on everything and lots of it...but the right kind, not chemically altered. We defineitly eat our share of butter and honey and we believe in herbal medicine more than pharmacuiticals. The leaves of the trees for healing as the scriptures say. In spite of how this sounds, I am not a preachy person, but since this was a introduction, I thought I would give the basics of me. I love collecting recipes and "how to" information. I also like surfing the internet and doing research on healthy living. I have a passion for cooking and three times a year I help cook for a group of nearly two thousand for a week...thankfully, all of them don't eat everyday and we serve three meals a day so it is still a lot of cooking. I love the forums on this board. I have only "lurked" for a day and decided I would sign up since it was one of my most adored things...talking about food and serving it, cooking it, creating it and doing it thrifty. I hope to get to know some personalities even though I won't be able to post much for the first few weeks. Enjoy your day everyone...or night, which ever it is. Sincerely SwoR P.S. Sorry for such a long introduction. I won't post responses this long all the time...LOL.
