Menu Plan for This Week 12/11/17!




 
With the forecast calling for more snow and cold I tried to think of all the warm hearty meals I could this week.  You know those heavy meals that stick with you and warm you up.  Yep, after some lovely weather this Fall we are officially wimps. We have to build up a tolerance soon because you know the grand kids will want to go sledding if there is enough snow.  Brr!  

Today I'm making tator tot casserole.  It's always fun and I hope the grandson will love it.   It will be his first time tasting it and you just never know. 

My Menu Plan for this Week 12/11/17!  

Monday               Tator tot casserole 

Tuesday               Chili (freezer meal) and grilled cheese sandwiches

Wednesday          Delicious Chicken Pot Pie

Thursday             Leftovers

Friday                 Hamburger Steak and French fries

Saturday              Out to eat

Sunday                Chicken and Dumplings  


Menu tip:   Cook with the seasons.   Winter dinners here are very hearty!

The grand daughters tractor frozen in time.  


It finally has become winter here in Michigan. When I open the curtains  the snow really brings a lot of light to our dark winter world plus it's pretty!  

I have been downloading all the Merry Days of Christmas coupons from Kroger every day.  I didn't buy all of the things of course but the coupons were there just in case.

I did buy a lot of sugar on sale at Kroger for .99 for a 4 lb bag. The guy behind me in the checkout lane asked me what I was going to do with all that sugar. He said it looked kind of suspicious to him and that maybe I was secretly making moonshine. He was totally cracking me up.  Really, I'm glad I won't have to pay full price for quite awhile.  I want to know something though, where did the other pound go?  Yes, I remember not too long ago that sugar used to come in a 5 lb bag. ...

I finished making  two travel pillow/blankets for friends. I didn't have my new camera yet so I couldn't take a picture.  They were fun and simple to make so I'll know I will be making more and sharing in the future.  I used the fleece blankets I bought at Menard's Black Friday sale, used a Joanne's coupon for the fleece material for the pillow square, and used the lace I bought at a garage sale this past summer to trim it. Total cost maybe $3.50.  Really, we just care about each other and want to express that, so our gifts are not about how much money we spend.  Thoughtful gifts matter!  




We went to estate sale and I bought 6 Santa plates for Christmas dinner for $3.00.  I think the grand kids will love them. 

I found a new hiding place for food that I need for baking or something that I would like to taste!     


My goals for this week:

Wrap up the rest of the presents and mail one out. 

Make some chocolate candy with the grand kids.  Last week we made volcano cookies instead of  the gingerbread.  They were gluten free and everyone loved them.  



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

My New Hiding Place






Have you ever decided to make chocolate chip cookies and find someone has eaten the entire bag of chocolate chips?   If you have teenagers, I bet you have!  Over the years we have gotten creative and found some great hiding places for things we would love to have a taste of before they are consumed in an instant!  
    


When I got a deal on chocolate chips last week I knew I better come up with someplace real quick.   I've been organizing my ironing board cupboard and storing my material elsewhere.  Right away, I knew this was the perfect place!   I'm the only one who sews or irons around here.  

Sooner or later though it seems like all our hiding places are found and we have to start thinking again. We are currently looking for a inside place to hide our pop so it won't freeze and bust in the backyard play house.  The granddaughter seemed to think that's where the pop must belong.


Are we crazy or do you do things like this too?
