  2. I Can See the Back of My Freezer!

    Freezer challenge: beginning of week 3

    Did good last week using up items as planned. The pot roast vegetables turned out to be leftover stew, which we ate for dinner Saturday. There's a little of that left which I think DH will take for lunch tomorrow.

    I made a big pot of chicken stock out of the backs and wings tips I had been saving, only to discover my pot pie recipe does not use it (it uses chicken base). I used some anyway, in place of some of the heavy cream. ...
  3. Sorting everything out.

    This month I did what I could to track our spending. I hung on to receipts, lost a couple, but i use the debit card, so i had records anyway.

    So once the little people are napping I'll be able write out what February budget was. And plan March.

    dh and I are booking a time to sit down and go over everything to see what we need to do. If we want to roll everything into refinance or just some of it. I have a much better idea than last time, now that all 4 will be in school, ...

    Okay, so I went to Sam's last week to buy some of the white table cloths, and the ones that I purchased are too small.
    So they will be returned this upcoming weekend, and I will go to the next bigger size.

    I did not get my mylars & absorbers ordered, I decided to order some #10 cans of food storage items:
    1-#10 can of vegetarian chicken broth
    1-#10 can of powdered, whole eggs (I plan on using this for baking purposes only)
    1-#10 can of Morning Moo's

  5. The Single Cousin

    by , 03-01-2009 at 11:22 PM
    I finally met J.'s single cousin The Firefighter (I'll call him FF) on Saturday night. My friend B. (J.'s wife) first mentioned introducing me to FF back in the beginning of January.

    Well, FF was tall and very sweet. He's a bit shy and I think he may be younger than I am. We chatted a bit on Saturday night and agreed to get together for dinner soon.

    My only concern is that he didn't go to college and it shows in the way that he speaks. He's a bit rough around the ...
