30 days rambling



I have been cooking every night since I started 30 Days of Nothing. I must admit that I caved and bought myself Jack-in-the Box the other night. I don't even feel guilty about it. I have been doing really good in all of the other areas. I do have to buy a new outfit this week for myself because we have our first school function to go to and I am NOT going to be looking like a frumpy mom when we go. I will try to keep it cheap though.

The table and chairs I wanted from Target are no longer on my wishlist because they wanted $300 to ship it when it only cost $349 to begin with. So I abandoned that and found one locally that I love even more. The one I plan on getting now has 6 chairs so I will have extra seating for guests. I am hating cooking every night but I am forcing myself to do it. I am pretty much in the habit now so I might actually make it the whole month. I can guarantee however that come October 1 Pizza hut will be hearing from us.

I also made my menu plan for this week so here it is:

Monday- orange bbq chicken and rice

Tuesday- tacos w/corn tortillas

Wednesday-lasagna

Thursday- herb chicken and rice

Friday- beef enchiladas

Saturday- hamburger helper

Sunday- crepes

Deserts this week are: peach cobbler, cherry enchiladas and jello with cool whip

Oh and the pic is from the other night. I got all the kids to sit on the rocking chair and Macie didn't want to cooperate at first so I just had the boy and Makayla. I love the feet. It is so cute to see the difference between my oldest and my baby. And speaking of the boy..his birthday is Thursday and tomorrow I am going to share the story about how his birthday(9-11) might have saved his life. Hope everyone had a great weekend.

I love baby feet too, especially their little toes :-)

You are doing a great job with 30 Day of Nothing. Hang in there, you can do it!! And, for anyone who does it and has kids, I have to think that it has the potential to teach them wonderful lessons!!

Ugh, I hate cooking too. My family is so ungrateful about it so that makes it worse.

I love the feet picture.
Are you going to show us your new outfit when you get it?

Your menu sounds great.. those cherry enchiladas are so good.. for our quesadillas, i bought a quesadillas maker at target.. it is a fantastic gadget to own.. just put a tortilla in it, fill with your favorite fillings and then place second tortilla on top.. we use it daily

Way to go on the cooking every night!! I find that really hard too - no idea what I'd do if Phil didn't love to cook. I suck at it too. I can do casseroles and pasta and that's about it. I would LOVE your cherry enchilada recipe!!! That sounds super yummy!!!

When you coming to see me?? I miss you!

Wow your doing great! good luck finding a nice inexpensive outfit to wear ;-)
I do my slow cooker chicken by rubbing it with some butter and either adding a packet of powder french onion soup mix or some powdered stock... easy peasy ;-)
