not getting digests

I am only getting an occasional digest with few messages as well.  Like,
one every two days or so. I've only very recently subscribed to this list,
so I didn't know what to expect with regard to volume.

That cookbook sounds like it has some great ideas.  I must see if our
library has it.

Michelle still having problems or are there so few messages? Is everyone
having this problem?

On a happier note, I just got a great cookbook from the library, it is
called, "The Convenient Vegetarian" by Virginia Messina and Kate Schumann,
1999. I especially liked the quick mixes. Some time ago one of our members
told us about the mixes she makes her husband for travelling and these are
like that. I have been making them for my University children and for my
pantry. There are also recipes for "Planovers", where you make up a batch
beans and then use it in 2 or three other ways.

Here is one of the Mix recipes:

Vegetable Rice Mix
makes about 4 cups

4 cups uncooked white or brown rice
1/2 cup dehydrated vegetables (often labeled "soup mix" in the bulk store)
1/4 cup vegetable broth powder
2 teaspoons salt

In a jar with a tightly fitting lid or a large bowl, mix all ingredients.

To cook:

2 cups water
1 cup Vegetable Rice Mix

In a medium saucepan bring water to a boil. Add Vegetable Rice Mix, and
return to simmer. Cook, covered, over medium heat until all water is
absorbed, about 20 minutes for white rice and 40 minutes for brown.
