With a new school year on the horizon, it’s time to think about what’s for lunch. Brown bagging it is plenty economical, but a steady diet of sandwiches becomes boring pretty quickly, to say nothing of the fact that all those servings of refined carbs simply don’t provide the energy necessary to power you through a long afternoon.
“I’m not shocked that our fast food culture would fall for Paul Ryan’s ‘Coupon-Care’ insurance scam. Everybody gets a coupon for Ryan’s plain-jane hamburger. You want cheese? That’s extra.

With Mardi Gras looming, I thought it might be fun to cook up some New Orleans-styled goodies featuring duck, andouille sausage and Creole seasoning. These rich ingredients are typical of the fare from this town that knows how to party — an instinct that goes into overdrive during Mardi Gras.
A House panel agreed Tuesday to stiffen penalties for those who abuse pets, but only after carving out what essentially amounts to special treatment – and looser regulations – for farmers and ranchers.
