Menu Week of August 3 and Memories

Menu Week of August 3 and Memories

Just over two weeks ago my sister lost her dear husband. My niece lost her father. My husband lost his cousin. My children lost their uncle. We are still in mourning and shock over this death.

My sister was married for almost 24 years. At the wedding I acted as Maid of Honor. One of […]

Menu Week of April 6

Menu Week of April 7

Spring is on the horizon. We’re still waking up to snow some mornings but many of the days are quite nice. This weekend we started tomatoes, broccoli, cabbage, pumpkin and jalapenos in the house. Joe also planted peas in the garden and got lots of the areas ready for planting when it’s time. Last weekend […]

Menu Week of August 3 and Memories

I can’t believe that we are already in December. It seems that 2013 has completely flown by. Our Thanksgiving weekend was very nice. Joe was off from Wednesday until today (Monday). He did a few things around here and even made our bread for the week on Saturday. I have to tell you, I felt […]

Menu Week of November 17

Last week I mentioned that we’ve not been as diligent with our budget as we need to be. One of the places that we’ve let slide is dining out. A few years ago (around the time I started this blog) our budget was super tight and eating out was not something that fit into the […]

Menu Plan Week of October 6

October 4 2013

We had a big blizzard on Friday. The picture above was the view out our front door on Friday morning. We did have a lot of snow but no damage. We lost a chick this morning. It hadn’t developed enough feathers yet (it was about 8 weeks old) and couldn’t handle the cold. The […]

Menu Plan Week of September 15

This week is going to be busy! I’ll tell you why this week is so busy later in this post– so keep reading.

I’m taking a few minutes right now to put together a simple menu plan since I function so much better with a plan in place. While this is a lot more […]

Favorite Meat-Free Meals

Red Beans: Rajma Style

In my post yesterday, 5 Ways to Afford Real Food on a Meager Budget, I talked about how we ate less meat but still had high quality meals. In this post I share a few of our favorite meat-free meals.

Creamed Onions with Thyme and Sage

This is a dish that we love and […]

I’m happy to be back home after being out of town for work last week. My husband tells me he is extremely happy I am home! It is nice to be missed. I did find being away by myself to be quite interesting. I had a wonderful visit with my daughter before my work assignment […]

Menu Plan October 28

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last week a friend and I were retrieving the rest of our Azure Standard order (a long story that involved ALOT of driving) and we were discussing real food and how it fits into our lives. Well, mostly I was complaining about how I don’t seem to try new recipes and new things lately. It […]

Super Flexible Stuffed Burritos

While we were on our family vacation this summer we ate out at Chipotle’s. We each had a huge stuffed burrito and while dining Joe said we should eat more burritos. I was surprised by that since we often have some sort of burrito, taco or tostado as part of our Stretchy Bean dishes.

My […]

Frito Boats

When I was growing up, there was a Drive-In at the end of town. Have you been to one of those places? You sit in your car and a girl on skates comes out and takes your order. Then brings it out on a tray that hangs off your window and you eat in your […]

Taco Soup

This is a delicious way to finish off a pot of beans. Usually by the end of my bean pot there are still some beans in it with quite a bit of the cooking liquid. Since I cook the beans in broth this is still a very nutrient dense liquid. We’ve talked about the […]

Pinto Beans: Cooking and Favorite Meals

Pinto Beans are prominently featured in my 13 Week Rotating Menu Plan on 3 different weeks (as Stretchy Beans) in those 3 plus months.

Pintos have been a very familiar food for me since I was a child. My mama would make a big pot of pintos every Friday night and that was our […]

Menu Week of April 24

After a break from blogging and my 13 Week Rotating Menu plan, I’m back at both. Last week was an on purpose break unlike the previous week which was due to my lack of organization (you ever have days/weeks like that?). The challenge last week was having to figure out our meals since it […]
