  • Happy Anniversary Peeps

    Posted by PJ Lacey

    Jelly beans are my favorite, but you've got to give a shout out to the bright colored marshmallow's 60th anniversary. 

    A serving of these party peeps, 5 chick-shaped pieces equals 28 calories,  each sugar ball has 7.2 grams of carbs.

    Give a curtsey to the Cadbury Creme Eggs or the  Peeps Court -

    Happy Easter!

    Antelope, deer, elk, moose

    If you can scrape it up you can eat it with Montana's new law. The Senate gave the bill intitial backing this week. Senator Larry Jent, D-Bozeman said, "It really is a sin to waste a good meat."

    Opponents question if the meat would be safe and create liability issues for food banks.

    -Add 6 carrots and 6 med. red potatoes to the cooker for about 2 hours.  Then you're ready for the cabbage, 2 lb. cut into 6 wedges, cook another 45 minutes.
