I love your menus. I make several of them. My husband just recently retired, so I shared your emails that I get for him to look over your menus as he is starting to learn to cook and he can't wait to try a lot of these. I have lots of cookbooks, but he likes to see what it will look like and yours are perfect. Thanks.
