My Blog

My blog has morphed over the years into different things. It is a place to learn about saving money, product reviews, cooking, gardening, and homesteading. It can take you to whatever has my attention at the moment and then back to the day to day. I hope you will learn something here and come back often.

Our Challenge

I am so glad you guys are on board with the Monday Challenge!!  Reply to the blog with your meal ideas and any difficulties you may have.  We can try to help one another out.

We missed breakfast today because we got a really slow start.  We made sandwiches for lunch to take to the zoo....then once we got to the zoo we left because it was sooooo crowded.  This evening we will be having leftovers from last night's soup.  I also made corn cakes to go with it and will probably repeat that tonight because they were a big hit.

I am thawing some chicken breasts to cook tomorrow.  I'm not sure yet how I am going to cook them.  Any ideas?  I get so tired of the same old thing.

I also have quite a collection of fruits in the freezer.  I have bananas, peaches, strawberries and blueberries.  I am thinking about smoothies for breakfast and maybe even some blueberry muffins.  It just depends on how industrious I feel this afternoon.  You know, when the sun shines it is hard for me to stay inside!


  1. Ok - I have boiled eggs for breakfast in the morning. I have banana smoothies made up and ready for a mid-morning snack. Lunch tomorrow will be baked potato stuffed with ham and cheese...yum!

    Still waiting on chicken ideas!!

  2. YIKES ... I think I won your challenge .... I have no groceries now in freezer or kitchen closet! Used some of your eggs in potato salad last night and in Tuna fish for sandwiches tonight! It was interesting to use up EVERYTHING.
    Boys are looking in the closet and saying,
    "Man, we do not have cans or anything in here!"
    Good lesson for them too - see how it is to survive on what you have.
