Welcome back everyone. So, it’s been asked why all the food stuff on the blog. Here’s the answer. I love food. As you are aware, I am very bad about updating the blog when I have to report on what the kids are doing. For the most part, those things don’t change on a daily basis. However, we eat something different every day! Plus, I’m uber (how do you spell that?) excited about the cookbook that I want to share recipes with all of you!
Anyways, as promised, I posted the cinnamon roll recipe at the end of this post. I doubled it, just for fun, haha! They turned out amazing, of course, was there any doubt? Next time guests come over we are having these again for sure, they were that good. Guest worthy.
Also, as you may see I am planning my meals. I usually do, in my head. Sometimes I write down recipe ideas that I read on blogs. I occasionally write on the white board what protein we might be eating…but February is a big month for us. We are going on a spending freeze. We will pay our bills, buy gas for the cars, and limit our groceries to $150 per week. That’s it. No take out. No Starbucks (I conveniently planned this spending freeze after peppermint mochas are out of my system). No new clothes or shoes, for anyone. No pizza night. No pay per view. We are doing this for the whole month of February, just to see what we can save! So, back to meal planning. Especially since I have a freezer full of food; and two pantries filled to the brim! However, $150 pretty much buys me 6 gallons of organic milk, two dozen organic eggs, some fruits and veggies…and not much else. I will be baking all my own bread this week….all our treats for lunch and dessert…And, since I’m sure you are all interested, I will keep you all up to date how it goes!
