Jenny came up with a wonderful idea! Carve faux pumpkins! Buy a faux pumpkin and have your kids draw their design with an orange sharpie. Take a knife or pumpkin carving tool and carve out the design as usual. Use a battery operated tea light to light your pumpkin! The best part, you can have your child sign the … [Read more...]

One of the things that I really like about Fall is that the warm and hearty meals are back on the table. My husband and I both enjoy soup.

It is easy to make in a slow cooker and it is a hearty meal on a cold night. It is a versatile recipe too. Use what you have on hand. Potato Cheddar Cheese Soup 4-6 Potatoes (I use Russet) 2 tablespoon … [Read more...]

I went shopping this afternoon for some things that we needed. I went to Rite Aid, Kroger and Harris Teeter. I also made a quick stop at Old Navy.

Fashion Friday: The Fashion Disaster

I love Fashion but I hate paying tons of money to look great. I believe you need two things the knowledge of what looks good on you and the skill to find it for less. I encourage you to get rid of all the items in your closet that you do not wear. They cloud up your options to make really great outfits because you can't see your clothes! If they are in good condition sell the at a consignment store or a place like Plato's closet, or host a clothing swap. Clothing swaps are a blast! We went to … [Read more...]

Packaging Meat for the Freezer

We are a meat eating family. Both my husband and I grew up on a meat and potatoes diet. I try not to cook with red meat more than once or twice a week; although we do really enjoy it! To save the most money on meat I buy when the prices are low and freeze it in dinner size portions. In fact I have not bought chicken, steak or pork for over a month now. We have been relying on our nice freezer stockpile. Since I do not have a Vacuum Sealer (the FoodSaver is on my want list!), I use Glad Press … [Read more...]
