My Menu Plan for this Week 2/18/19!



When we put the freezer in the garage a long time ago it seemed like the logical choice.  Without a basement there just wasn't another place for it to go.  Sometimes though when it snows I just hate the thoughts of going out there.  I mean I'm going out there in the frozen world to look for frozen food.  Just so you know, I'm not a good hunter or an ice fisher woman.  

Sorry just feeling sorry for myself.   Thank the Lord he has blessed me with a freezer and food to fill it.  Listen, that's just how fast we can go downhill in our thoughts I guess and we need to stay positive in this world we live in today.  I have a great husband who is always reminding me of this.   One day I said to him, "I'm just tired of your positivity." We both looked at each other and cracked up laughing!  

  
So this morning I started off making the menu plan with everything that was in the fridg's freezer in the kitchen!  Now for the rest of the week I had to get out of my PJ's, put on my warm pants, and go look in that garage.  While I was out there and cold anyway, I took the extra canning jars  and put the mail in the box.  Three birds knocked out with one stone.  




Monday            Spaghetti with spaghetti squash noodles

Tuesday            Sauerkraut with hotdogs and green beans

Wednesday       Turkey (leftover from the last one I made), sweet potatoes, and leftover green beans

Thursday          Steak and a Salad

Friday               Low Carb Pizza

Saturday           There are bound to be some leftovers of something they can eat!  

Sunday             Pork Chops (just fried down brown),  Shuck beans (he has been asking for them)


I hope to make it through the week without eating out.  


What's on your menu plan for this week?

My Frugal Ways this Past Week 2/17/19!

It finally warmed up here enough that I felt the grand kids could go out to play without freezing.  We took them on a little snowy four wheel ride and then we took them sledding the next night.   They had the best time and were completely exhausted.  Perfect!  

This week I have had a few surprises and it was so fun.   I won 4 tickets to see a children's play that I took my granddaughter to yesterday.   It was so cute and we had a great time.  

My biggest win came from our local car show that we went to.  They have a lot of vendors with giveaways and I made sure to enter them all.  It paid off because I actually won a car starter!  Our van's car starter quit about a year ago. It's been so nice these past few days to just click to start the car from inside a warm house.  I mean we have done without one for a year but there is such a  joy in staying warm inside now. Installation was included but we paid for the door locking mechanism.  Total spent was around $33.00.

When we went to the car show we paid $16.00 for both of us to get in and $5.00 for parking.   We felt like we got a lot of that back with all the freebies they were giving out.   Here are the ones I can remember:  two large snow/ice scrapers for the car, multiple little canisters of sanitizing hand wipes,  lots of wrap around can cooler things,  some kind of moist towels that work like magic to clean off everything it seems in your house (I'm buying a big tub soon -from O Rally's), bottles of car wash, and  little bags of Kleenex.  

I made yogurt.

I dried banana chips in the dehydrator.  

I winter sowed 10 more jugs this past week.

My goals for this week:

Winter sow more jugs.  I need to sew peppers, more tomatoes, marigolds, and lettuce.  I also need to buy more potting soil.  

Finish stenciling the last pull out drawer of the pantry using the stencils I was sent from Stencil Revolution for my honest review.  This hasn't been hard but I find it's like one thing led to another and I'm working on the whole pantry!  I'm at the finish line now so it will be done in a few days.  I'm excited to show you the complete finish with my review!    Here is a peek:





What are the ways you've saved this past week?
