This month I feel like being spontaneous with our meals. I'm trying to use up some things in my freezer and pantry, and it's easiest for me to do this by just planning my menu a few days at a time. I'm also trying not to buy very many groceries this month other than produce and dairy. I just stocked up on meat, so we're good there. I like that you can go to a website like www.allrecipes.com and enter in the ingredients you have and it will search the recipes based on what you have. I've come across some great recipes by doing that. I'm hoping to post some of the recipes that our family likes this month as well.
I'm a Christian stay at home mom to my three boys & a baby girl, trying to balance family life, homeschooling, and all the little things that go along with caring for my family and my home, while serving the Lord.
I don't want to be a tightwad or a spendthrift. I want to be smart. I want to celebrate life, to surround myself with beauty, and to be content in whatever state I am in. I want to manage my finances, to organize my routine, and to use my possessions wisely. I want to budget resources and time, to help others, and to bring glory to God. --- by Cynthia Yates
