It's Personal - Change of plans

I was really looking forward to a day out in the snow tomorrow with the family. But snow flakes turned to tooth ache...

Yummy for my Tummy - Menu

I'm about to head out to the grocery store, but waiting for E to be ready for bed so we can pray first. So while I wait I will share my menu with you.

Fish in white mustard sauce (the sauce is white, not the mustard) with potatoes and peas. This is somewhat of a tradition for me from home. It's so good, especially after filling up on Christmas food for a few days. And I always serve peas with my fish. Not sure why. C always pics on me.

English Muffin Pizza What can I say? It's easy. E can make most of them. We have some English muffins in the freezer from a BOG2 sale recently. We make them on whole wheat.

Roast or Roullader (Not sure what you call them here.) I have the meat already in the freezer from a meat sale a couple of weeks ago. Time and energy will determine what I'll be making.

Beef Stew in the crock pot. Someone from C's work killed a cow or something so we got some meat. Love free meat! Thanks someone!

Broccoli Soup with Arnold circle sandwiches. The circles are on sale right now I think. And the broc is cheap too. And E loves soup. And I have a really yummy recipe.

Tuna Noodle casserole My MIL gave me a recipe I've been using for a long time. We really enjoy it, but it calls for a can of cream of chicken soup and since I try not to use canned soups (or anything half made from a box or can) I started making it all from scratch. (Well, I don't go fishing for the tuna, but I do whisk my own butter, flour and milk together.)

Leftover Three bean Chili Cornbread Casserole Again, in the freezer. I made A LOT the last time.

Texmex Soup. I found a recipe on Tasteline. It calls for a package of taco seasoning. I think I'll be able to make my own. Don't care for all that salt they use.

Usually I plan 11 meals and go shopping every other week. Not really sure why I only planned 8 this time. Hoping for leftovers!

Maybe some day I'll have time to share a recipe or two with you.

Zoomed Out

Yep! Barely blogging at all nowadays, barely even reading blogs right now... But I'm waiting for the shower to become available so here I am. I figured I should let you know what I zoomed in on in my last post. Yes, it was oatmeal with raisins (and sliced almonds, but I don't know if they were even visible). I eat this for breakfast, or lunch, A LOT! I serve it with almond milk. Yum!
So anyways, I wanted tell you why I chose oatmeal. Do you remember way back when, when I told you about the magazine I read as a kid that had this contest on the last page and how I was inspired by that to start this Zoomed thing. Yes, thing, I'm tired, ok? It's almost midnight and I still have to take my shower. 
Remember how I told ya that I always wanted to take pictures and zoom in and let people guess what it was? Well, oatmeal has been on my mind since then, since I was a kid. Now, the picture didn't turn out the way I had envisioned.  I always wanted to zoom in on those little bubbles that pop as the oatmeal is boiling away. They're pretty cool. But it got too steamy to do that so that didn't happen. Stupid childhood dream! (Did you also have a dream about zooming in on bubbling oatmeal when you were a kid? What a coincidence!)

Well, the shower is all mine and then it's time for bed. Can you say zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz?

Zoomed In

Did you miss me? I know I haven't been on here much lately, and to be honest I will continue to be sporadic about blogging until things calm down a bit. With Christmas and everything that comes with it plus both birthdays of my girls all within ten days I am one busy mamma right now. My computer is telling me I misspelled mamma but I did not. That's how we spell it in polar bear country. (No, we don't really have polar bears walking around on our streets, but I'm humoring who ever came up with that rumor.)

To add a little bit more to my plate (I know, I'm running down bunny trails here, but we'll get to the picture soon. I promise you.) I decided to save a little money by crafting some of the gifts this year. They might show up here later, maybe as a tutorial or just as a little brag book type of blog post. But it sure is taking its sweet time, so forgive me if I'm not posting stuff here as often. Just know you have a lot to look forward to. =)

So, enough of that. What did I zoom in on this time? Well, you tell me.
Tell me before I tell you! (Yeah, I know, pretty lame. I usually give some sort of time frame, but I think I explained it well enough why that's a bit tricky right now. I'm shooting for sometime next week. How's that?)
