End of the Year


As we draw towards the end of another year, I am looking forward to what the new year might bring. Unfortunately I haven't posted on here as much as I would have liked. This time of year keeps me extremely busy with holiday preparations. Decorating, Christmas shopping, cooking, and a little crafting, along with what seems like never ending cleaning. Lol.

The Absolute Best Chicken Lasagna Recipe.

This recipe has become an all time family favorite ever since my sister gave me the recipe. When she first gave me the recipe, I was a little hesitant to try it, mainly because I wasn’t a big fan of lasagna, let alone one with chicken in it. A few years ago, my son and I made a trip up to Montana to visit her and her family for Easter, and she made this for us. I have to say, I was blown away at how good it was, and how easy it was to make, for a lasagna...lol. I fixed it for my husband one of the times he was home on his home time, and he absolutely loved it. It’s become one of those recipes I save for special occasions, or gatherings with friends. So far I haven’t gotten a single complaint when I make it, even from my picky kids…lol.

Weekly Menu for 10-29-2012

Unfortunately Hubby didn’t make it home last week like I was hoping. On the bright side, he should be home tonight, and he’ll be home for Halloween this year. It’s been at least a few years since he’s actually been home on Halloween, the kids are super excited. Since he didn’t make it home last week, I ended up not making some of the items I had planned for dinner. Opting instead to save them for when he gets home.

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

A couple days ago I had the fun task of cleaning out 3 large pumpkins. They were going to be carved at my son’s cub scouts pack meeting activity. Usually I just throw everything inside the pumpkins away, but this year I decided to keep the pumpkin seeds and try roasting them. I had never before tried roasting pumpkin seeds, and had no idea how one does it. So I googled some instructions, and was surprised at how simple it was to do.

Using Vinegar to Remove Odor from Jars.

These last couple of months I've been saving jars to use for some of the cool project ideas I've seen on Pinterest. There are so many cute ways to use jars other than just storing food. Instead of going out and buying mason jars I've been trying to save some of my spaghetti sauce and salsa jars as well as any other jars that look cool. I try to take the more frugal approach to my projects to help save money as well as cut down on waste.

Weekly Menu for 10-22-2012

As I sit here planning out my grocery list for the week, I think I’m going to revisit some old favorites for our menu this week. I wish I knew for sure when hubby might get home, because I would like to make his favorite recipe as a belated birthday gift. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see which way the loads will fall.

Outdoor Halloween Decorating

My kids and I have been having a lot of fun getting our house ready for Halloween. This is one of my favorite times of the year to decorate. I love the fall colors, and I have this crazy obsession with skulls and skeletons….Don’t ask me why. Lol
