Weekly Menu

Rent is due soon so we are on a budget menu the next few weeks. I get most of my idea’s from the Hillbilly Housewife$45 a week.  It is a little higher then that now as food prices have gone up, so I would say in my area it is more like $65, but still a great deal. This is not just dinner, her menu plan is for breakfast, lunch, dinner and a snack everyday. That is really not bad. when it comes to my budget recipes. She can feed a family of 4 or 5 on

Weekly Menu 1-18-2009

Sunday – Black Bean Soup

Monday- Butter Beans & Scalloped Tomatoes

Tuesday – Pork Chops & veggie

Wednesday – Tacos

Thursday – Hot Dogs and Veggie

Friday – Pork Stir-fry

Saturday – Breakfast for Dinner

If you have $70 for your food shopping then she has a menu that includes more meat, with food prices I would say it now is more like $90.  I use a mixture of the 2 and a little bit of my own and my food bill this week will be about $80.

Have fun feeding you family and enjoy every minute of them. Dinner time should be a time that you all sit around the table and share how you day went and discuss the next day and anything else that you may want to talk about.


My Life Changing Event

Darla Shine has written a book that saved my life. This book is great and will really help you out if your are in the “Housewife Rut”, this book was made for people like us.

This is the best book that I have ever read, it literally saved my life. There is a whole community of housewives that do not know where they would be without this book. I was too a “A whining, miserable, desperate housewife”, I hated myself. When I got up in the morning I hated to go about what needed to be done, and I stayed in my PJ’s unless I had to go out somewhere, and even then I was a mess. I could not get out of my own way. My house was a mess, I was a mess, and my family was becoming a mess. It was a getting away from me, so I was cruising amazon looking for a savior and I found it in Darla Shine’s Happy Housewives! I read the book cover to cover in one night and started implementing the 10 easy steps the next day, in a matter of weeks my house was in order, I felt like a million bucks, my kids where happy and getting a long better, and my husband and I well, lets just say “teenagers again”. It has been a over 2 years since I got the book and I still read it cover to cover. My family is happier then it ever was and I am always evolving into an even better mommy and wife. I will never forget Darla and how her book saved my life.

I have seen first hand from the actual women who’s life has been changed by this book. Ladies drop by and read the book then leave a comment and tell us how Darla changed your life. Buy it on Amazon!

I must be a horrible mommy

As I’ve stated before I have 3 girls, 2 of which are school aged. They went back to school today and I thought the day would never come. I love them more then anything but they have been home way to long, after the first week I had had enough. I can’t get my stuff done and always have to entertain them. It’s not so bad over summer vacation because they stay outside for most of the day, but in the winter when it is really to cold to play outside they drive me crazy. My house is in serious need of my time and attention as it has become a bit flipped upside down with 3 kids stuck inside for 2 weeks. Again I love them but thank God winter break is over. God Bless Schools!
