Menu Planning

One thing I need to do is have a menu planned out or I'm lost when it comes to dinner.
I'm also trying to clean out our freezer due to getting a 1/4 cow from my sister-in-law the end of the month.

Menu plan for this coming week:

Friday: Fish
Sat: French Onion Soup and Hot Ham & Cheese Sandwiches
Sun: Chicken and Dumplings (new recipe)
Mon: Tacos
Tues: Leftovers
Wed: Pork Chops, Mashed Potatoes, Applesauce
Thurs: Pizza

Babies R Us: Earth’s Best Diapers for $3.50 per pack (1/6 ONLY)

Heading to Babies R Us and need diapers?  This deal is for you!

Earth’s Best Jumbo Packs $5 (after this Babies R Us store coupon)
Use $1.50/1 Earth’s Best Diapers coupon
Pay $3.50 per pack

I might try and get there myself later. 

New Year - New Recipes to Try!!!

It's a New Year and a time to make resolutions. Instead of resolutions (since they always seem to fail) I'm setting some goals. Here are my 2011 goals:

* Try a new recipe every other week. I love to cook and try new recipes and I have soooo many cookbooks.  Anyone want to join me in this challenge? Posting recipes and reviews?

* Start Taskful Tuesday. Every Tuesday pick a new task that I'd like to accomplish over the next week. There always seems to be little projects that I've been meaning to get done. Maybe this way some actually will get accomplished.

* Have a date night with my husband at least once a month. This can even be a stay home date after the kids go to bed.

* Start/Continue this blog
Posts to include:
Sunday/Monday - store/coupons match-ups
Tuesday - Taskful Tuesday, pick the task of the week
Wednesday - open
Thursday - Tasteful Thursday, blog about the new recipe tried
Friday - Fun Friday's, fun family ideas
Saturday - Blog any saving's of the week
Of course, any of these may be tweaked overtime :)
