SIL contributes to a great blog called Today's Housewife. Sharing receipts is just one of the many cool things that they do at Today's Housewife. Each week a new topic or ingredient is posted and readers can contribute by posting receipts on their own blog. This week's theme is Please Pass My Favorite from Mom.
