It was good and EASY, just a bit too 'eggy' for my daughter; as she is NOT a big egg person. So next time maybe not as many eggs!
After breakfast teen daughter and I headed out early Saturday morning to the 12th Annual Hwy 46 yard sale. All along the Hwy from the Georgia line to Heflin, Alabama we drove, rode and found 11 treasures for a grand total of $17. We were also in a race with the weather, but managed to stay ahead of the rain! I will be sharing some our finds this week during Met Monday, Tuesday's 3 or more and 2nd time around posts and Thursday's Tablescape. So come back all week long to see our 'new' treasures.
Just so you don't have to WAIT for a peek, here are two of the items:
We made it back to my youngest sister's house promptly at 1pm for cake and ice cream to celebrate one of my nieces birthday. She is 9.
I can not profess to be as organized as a few of my friends think I sound! They've heard me talking about menu planning and projects in the works; thinking I am drinking tons of coffee to get it all done. My secret IS..... that I just have to set my mind TO it and DO it! Making the house cozy and working on frugal projects gives me a sense of accomplishment AND I get to enjoy it all. Who doesn't like to save a dime or two along the way? Renewing my menu planning last week created extra time in the evenings after work! No worrying over 'What's for dinner?'; all the ingredients were on hand (so no running to town to pick up something) and teen daughter loves knowing what we are going to eat. PLUS all the meals were a HIT with my sometimes really picky eating daughter! Sunday we had her favorite meal; Salmon patties.
This weeks menu came together after organizing my 'everything just tossed in there' cabinets. I checked to see what could be used from there and the freezer to go with meals. I also found ground beef and chicken on sale. So here is this weeks menu:
We are always rushing out the door! I usually have assorted breakfast bars on hand.
My daughter eats lunch at school & I come home from work to eat leftovers with the occasional frozen zapped something. Ha!
Panini sandwiches, chips and a pickle (plenty of sour dough bread left)
Taco Soup (basic recipe I use) & Scoop Corn Chips
Leftovers (Lots of soup left)
Meatloaf, AuGratin potatoes, baked apples
Ranch Chicken, corn on the cob and left over baked apples
Not sure yet, maybe left over Pizza
