I had one of these mornings.

This thoughtful poem by Single Dad Laughing touched me this afternoon so I’m sharing it with you. I had a snippy morning with Out of Time Toddler and her 2 year oldishness. Sometimes I feel like it’s a constant battle with her independent spirit, but it’s one of the things I love best about her. It …

Menu Plan Monday 3/26/12

This week, I decided to try to include a few meatless meals. The prices of meat are out of this world, and I can’t seem to adjust to the new normal for them. A good sale price to me used to be under $1.99/lb for ground beef. Now it’s apparently $2.69 or above. That puts …

Not every tasty dip has to be savory. If you want something fun and sweet to snack on, try this Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Dip! It’s quick enough to bring as a last minute appetizer, it’s great for a girl’s night in, and it was tasty as I watched football tonight! Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough…

Menu Plan Monday 3/19/12

This week I’m continuing to prepare meals using items from the freezer and pantry. I’ve invested a lot of money into my stockpile of food, and it’s time to cash it out to put some money now into savings for a new home. I have prepped the cut veggies for the week, enough for lunches …

1 Wiggly Toddler and a Train Trip

It has been over a week since I took OOTToddler over the river and through the woods, to Grandmother’s house via train.  After a week of recovery, I think I am finally able to speak about it. I was looking forward to seeing our family in MD, as it had been since Christmas that we’d …
