I'm trying to get myself back in the habit of planning my meals for the week. We are heading into Girl Scout Cookie Season and I definately need to be on top of things or we might not be eating (LOL) We get our cookies on Tuesday of this week. I have to head over to our leader's house right after Issac's therapy and help unload. Next weekend we have a 3 booths, so I'm trying to plan my meals from today through next Sunday at least. Here is what I have planned:
Meatloaf, mashed potatoes and frozen veggies
Hot Dogs, Tator Tots and frozen veggies
Beef Stroganoff Casserole with either frozen veggies or salad. The recipe I'm using is from www.familycircle.com
Squash & Lentil Stew with salad. This recip is also from www.familycircle.com
Baked chicken & potatoes with veggies
Spaghetti and either frozen veggies or salad
Chef John's Turkey Sloppy Joes, Fries and veggies. I got this recipe off www.allrecipe.com
**I wanted to stretch mine a little further than the beef I used that night, so I added cooked lentils to it and nobody noticed:)
I just realized I'm short one meal here (LOL) My brain isn't coming up with anything else at this point. More than likely I'll make homeade soup one day. Maybe on the weekend because after standing outside Saturday afternoon or Sunday afternoon/evening homeade soup would feel great!

I grew up loving winter weather, especially the snow. When we lived in California that is one of the things that I truly missed about North Carolina. When we moved back I was really excited about being around snow again. We have lived here over 3 years now and I think we've had snow twice. Where we live just doesn't really get much winter weather. A week or so ago they called for 100% chance of snow for several hours and we got nothing :( Today they were calling for some snow, sleet, ice accumulation, etc. This is what my back looks like right now, this is all ice.

I recently read a post from a dear friend's blog about saving money. I always seem to have the thought that I need to put away a certain amount each week or month to really be saving. When I saw this chart I realized that anything truly is better than nothing! I talked to dh and he was onboard. We are only going into week 4, but it feels good to know that we are doing something.
