dinner menu 1/25- 1/30

So in my attempt to save money I'm trying to plan out our meals for the week. That way I can actually make a grocery list based on what we need instead of just going up and down the isles tossing stuff that I know we use in the buggy. So here's tonight through Friday.

Sunday - Chili
Monday - Hamburgers and french fries
Tuesday - General Tso Chicken (homemade, I have almost perfected the recipe and I'll share mine once I do)
Wednesday - Spaghetti
Thursday - Chicken with BBQ sauce, cheddar cheese and bacon. Bacon green beans, & mac n cheese
Friday - Steak and fries and/or salad

I'm hoping that by planning out our meals I'll be able to keep from having to run to the store all the freaking time. Because trust me, with two kids, that can be quite the pain in the butt. I also started working on my coupon binder tonight, I clipped all the coupons from last weeks paper and got about 1/3 of them put in, hopefully that will make it easier to keep up with them.

my newest cake

tomorrow is my sisters birthday so i made her a cake, i needed a chance to test out my newest cake pan anyway so that would be why i made her a Lightning McQueen cake. it came out pretty good considering i had to make it in stages b/c the kids kept being needy.

I'm a bad blogger

so i'm doing a bum job at project 365, it should be day 21 and i haven't posted a picture since day 15. and its not like i'm just behind on posting, i also haven't been taking pictures much either. oh well. i have, however, added a bunch of blogs to my list to read and most of them have something to do with saving money. one of my goals is to save up some money and the best way i can do that is to not spend so much (DUH!) and so i've been reading all these blogs trying to understand things like CVSing and how to get the most out of coupons and sales. i've always been a good shopper but i can see that there are mamas out that that are amazing shoppers. so if anybody else is looking to do the same check out some of the blogs i have listed.

also prayers are needed for some of the blog familys i read about: the Tubre Quads have one in the hospital and 3 more at home sick, the Wright Five had a kido pass out and shes in the hospital now, and the Gerwer Quads are all sick and their mama is in the hospital sick too. so if you pray then say a prayer for all of them. and also for my grampy whos in the hospital, he was having an irregular heartbeat yesterday and so they're trying to get it back in sync.

all the leaves

if you look closely in this picture you'll see that all the big outside toys have been knocked over. that is because i have a crazy 3 year old. he went on a toy tearing rampage while we were outside.

Connor running at me

i managed to snap this picture as he was diving into me. apparently knocking over all the toys wasn't enough he had to come after me also.
