Menu Plan for the week of 12/30/2013

How was your Christmas Holiday?  We had a great time just relaxing, playing games, talking and just enjoying each other's company.  It was nice. We got to Video Chat with my father in law and his wife along with my hubby's aunt and uncle.  We also got to participate in the Pickle Party that my mother in law throws every year without leaving our home- we Face Timed, it was great.  It was great seeing everyone on Christmas.

We are still trying to eat out of freezer and pantry as much as possible. 

Here is our menu plan for this week:

Breakfast
Chocolate Chip Banana Bread muffins- (banana bread recipe made into muffins with a handful of chocolate chips~ Nathan's idea) X2
Oatmeal with brown sugar and raisins X2
Pancakes X2
Strawberry Spinach Smoothie

Lunch
Salad with homemade ranch dressing and a banana for me
Sandwich with homemade bread with apple slices and peanuts

Dinner
Chili with cornbread
Shredded Pork BBQ (from the freezer) served on buns with corn
Turkey Potpie
Grilled Cheese and Soup
Shrimp Lemon Orzo with green beans
Spaghetti with corn and homemade rolls
Leftovers or Eating Out with a Christmas gift card :)

Snacks and desserts
Pumpkin Pie
Indoor Smores
Popcorn
Apple slices

What super yummy meals do you have planned for your family this week?  I would love to hear all about them.

Adventures in Container Gardening

I originally thought that my post this evening was going to be about how not much is going on in our container garden.  I went out to water the containers this morning and some cool things are happening.  I am so excited :)

Here is what is going on in our little container garden out back:
Our very first cherry tomato

Our regular tomatoes getting bigger

Cucumber flowering is a good sign

Romaine looking good
I am so excited to see what these veggies are going to do.  There are no changes in our zucchini plants.  We are patiently waiting.  Our spinach leaves are perking up and looking good- yea!!

I wish we knew more about container gardening when living in Virginia.  I am loving my small portable backyard garden.

Until next week.....

Menu Plan for the week of 12/23/2013

We hope everyone had a blessed weekend.  We had a "fun" filled weekend.  We attempted to go to the Farmer's Market (arrived too close to closing time and everyone was packing up), attempted to take the boys to see Santa (this only took 2 trips), had a family movie night and Nathan broke his glasses.  We have them taped up right now and will be going out to see about getting a new pair. But on the up side, I am loving the low 80 degree days we are having in December :)  I am enjoying every minute of these gorgeous days because I am sure I will be roasting come summer.

Here are our menu plans for this week:

Breakfast
Cinnamon Sugar Pizza
Baked Oatmeal with Apples X2
Applesauce Bread muffins
Oatmeal with raisins and honey
Pancakes X2

Lunch
Salad with homemade ranch dressing and a banana for me and hubby
Sandwich with homemade bread, carrots and popcorn for everyone else

Adventures in Container Gardening

Last week, I told you about my grand idea to attempt to have a garden without tearing up our land lord's property :)

Container gardening has been a lot of fun.  Well except for having to move the 5 gallon buckets every other day to make sure we don't kill the grass.  They are heavy.

I am having fun with my container garden and look forward to seeing what happens.

Here is what is going on in our backyard container garden:
Our lovely blue containers

Romaine lettuce

Tomatoes- Yay :)

Our Florida Adventures with Snow :)

Yes, you read that correctly.  Snow.  You may be thinking, you all are in Florida~ did it snow in Florida? 

To sound a like that our 9 year old- well sort of :)

Before we moved down to Southwest Florida, we researched things to do.  One thing that was so cool was that Cape Coral brings in 20 tons of "snow" every December for the kids to sled down.  How cool is that?  Most of the kids born in Florida have never seen snow, so it is quite the experience.  Being from Virginia, we all know snow. 

We were curious to see this "snow" in Florida.  Off to the Festival of Lights we went.  There was so much to do. Bouncy houses, train rides, snow sled and so much more. 

I thought we would go down, see everything, let the boys sled down the hill and be back in time to make dinner.  No problem- right?  WRONG!!  The boys had tons of fun and we didn't end up leaving the festival until 7pm- oops.

Lesson for next year, eat dinner before going.

Here are some pictures we took at the festival:
It's snowing in Florida- LOL:)


Michael not so sure about the slide

Nathan going up

Nathan coming down

Train ride

Santa came by horse drawn carriage- so cool
It was a neat experience and we will be going back next December :)

Lilla Rose Mystery Hostess Party


Due to our loss of Internet, I have decided to extend the Lilla Rose Mystery Hostess Party.  The party will now close on December 21st at 8pm.  At 8pm on December 21st, I will randomly select 1 person to be the Mystery Hostess and be rewarded with all the Hostess Rewards for the whole party.  It could be up to $150 in FREE Lilla Rose products.  Wouldn't that be awesome?
You can even hop on over to the Facebook event page.  You can ask questions and even play the name that Lilla Rose product game.  Those who play the game will be entered into a drawing for a FREE Flexi Clip or Lilla Rose product valued up to $16.

Not sure what size Flexi you should get, watch this sizing video.  It should help.

Thanks to my Internet drama, I am offering the following special:
Order from the Party Link to be included in the Lilla Rose Mystery Hostess Party.

If you would like the special, simply order 3 items and then email me at momstips2save@gmail.com and let me know what you would like your free item to be.

If you have been or are currently a customer with Lilla Rose through another consultant, please be loyal and continue to order with her. This offer is for brand new Lilla Rose customers.  I appreciate your understanding in this matter – and I’m sure your sweet consultant does too! (You can always contact her, explain my offer and ask if she would honor it, but please keep in mind it would be at her discretion.)

Adventures in Container Gardening

I am loving this weather in Florida.  Nice cool 70 degrees.  I am not missing my cold, snowy and rainy Virginia weather. 

But I do miss my garden.  I love going to the Farmer's Market here and supporting the farmers in my community but I do miss growing, picking and eating the veggies my family grew.

Since we are renting this house, I cannot dig up my back yard for a garden :(  A thought came to mind.  Instead of digging up the yard, why not look into container gardening?  And off to the Internet I went in search of all things container gardening.  I came up with some great information.  I would have never thought to place rocks in the bottoms of my buckets to help the water drain better.  So glad I did my research first :)

I went to Lowe's and got a bag of rocks, garden soil and of course veggie plants.  We ran over to Walmart to get buckets.  I bought all they had and had to go back to Lowes for a few more buckets.

Here is how we set up our container garden:
Hubby drilled holes

Put rocks in

Added soil on top of rocks

Planted plants

Here is my complete container gardening line up :)
We are growing tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, green peppers, spinach, romaine lettuce and zucchini's.  I would have loved some cucumbers but Lowes didn't have any. 

Let's see how container gardening works for us. 

No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars Recipe

I was printing off a coupon for Nestlé's Toll House morsels and a recipe printed with it~ No Bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Bars.  The boys looked at it, looked at me and said you HAVE to make this.

We used our freshly made Homemade Peanut Butter and made this super yummy delicious treat.

You will need:
2 Cups Peanut Butter
1 1/2 sticks butter, softened
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
3 Cups Graham Cracker crumbs
2 Cups chocolate chips- we used Dark Chocolate

First you need Graham Cracker crumbs.  I take Graham Crackers, put them in a gallon zip lock bag and take my rolling pin to them and you have graham cracker crumbs. Set them aside.

Take 1 1/4 Cups of your Peanut Butter and your softened butter and mix really well.  I used a spoon and stirred- it worked great.  Beat in 1 Cup of Powdered Sugar.  Work in remaining Cup of Powdered Sugar, graham cracker crumbs and 1/2 Cup of chocolate chips.  It was to hard to stir, so I used my hands to mix this mixture.  Press in greased 9X13 pan.  Set aside.

Melt 3/4 Cup Peanut Butter and remaining chocolate chips in pan over low heat.  I didn't see that the recipe said to use the lowest setting possible and almost burnt my melting chocolate- oops.  Stir constantly until smooth.  Spread over graham cracker crust in pan and set in refrigerator for 1 hour or until the chocolate is firm to the touch.  That is the hardest part- waiting for the chocolate to harden up so you can cut this bad boy.

Cut into bars and enjoy.  These were very tasty and gone very quickly :)
Someone got caught stealing chocolate chips out of the bowl while "helping".  See Kevin in the background "helping"/taste testing.
Graham Cracker mixture pressed in pan
Looks yummy.  If I didn't have any self control, I would have probably eaten that just the way it was :)
Looks tasty melted
Spread on top and place in refrigerator and wait
Kevin "helping" again- he is cleaning up~ LOL:)
These No Bake Chocolate Chip Peanut Butter Bars were a huge hit with everyone in our family :)

Lilla Rose & Mystery Hostess Party

Have you heard of Lilla Rose?

I had heard the name and saw their products but that was it.

It wasn't until I was at a homeschool convention that I actually got to touch the product.  The rep was sweet and offered to show me how the flexi clips work.  She told me that she could get my long thick curly hair into an extra small flexi.  My first reaction- yeah right, there is no way you are going to fit all my hair into a ponytail with such a small hair clip.

Well, you know what- she did.  I was amazed.  I then told her that I was so excited- this is the first time in a very long time that any of me fit in a extra small anything~ LOL:)  I had to touch the flexi  to make sure she actually put in my hair.  I didn't feel the flexi clip in my hair.  They are so light but hold so well. 

I looked at hubby and smiled.  He told me to go ahead and buy one- I ended up with 2 :)

One thing that I LOVE about the Lilla Rose Flexi Clips:
They are made with people like me in mind.  They are all 1 piece.  Nothing to lose- um I mean creatively misplace :)

Another thing I absolutely adore about the Flexi Clip is that not only are they stunning and beautiful, they are very durable.  They are made with music wire.  I heard a young lady say that she ran her Flexi over with her car accidentally and her Flexi looked great and didn't break:)

One of my frustrations with the plastic claws was that if I had to drive anywhere, I always ended up hurting my head on the headrest.  No matter how I would hold my head, it would always end up hitting the headrest and causing me pain.  Those that know me, know that I normally where my hair in a ponytail- quick and easy.  By the end of the day, I would end up with a killer headache due to my hair being pulled so tight.  You know that feeling?  So, not a good feeling.

Enter the Flexi Clip- these bad boys are fabulous.  They not only stay in place all day long, they are so comfortable, I barely notice them in my hair.  Plus you can do so many things with your hair with just 1 clip:
The Flexi Clips come in 7 different sizes.  If you have short hair, long hair, thick hair, thin hair, super curly hair, straight hair or baby fine hair~ Lilla Rose has something for you.  They not only have Flexi Clips, they have Hair Bands, Hair Sticks, You-Pins, Bobby Pins and Badge Clips.  Something for everyone.

As if you can't tell I really have fallen in love with Lilla Rose products.  So much so, that I just signed up to be a Lilla Rose Independent Consultant :)  You can browse around my website if you like.  Be sure to check out the Flexi Sizing Video to see what size bests fits your hair and some neat hair styling videos.

I am currently doing a Mystery Hostess Facebook Party.  Hop on over if you want to join in on all the fun that we will be having.  One lucky winner will be chosen at the closing of the party, which is December 15th.  The lucky winner will earn all the Hostess Rewards for the party.  Plus, I will be doing some giveaways from now until Party Day~ December 14, 2013.  Hope you can join me.  Here is the party link: http://www.lillarose.biz/parties/3503

Let me know if I can answer any questions you may have.

Lowe's Build & Grow Clinic~ December 14, 2013

Lowes will be hosting a Build & Grow Clinic on December 14 at 10am. We are so happy to get back to going to these again.  The boys really love them:)

If you are looking for a great free activity that you can do with your kids- you should check out the Lowes Build & Grow Clinics. Little Michael and Nathan love them. They love being able to do hands on projects with our help.

This Saturday, Lowes Build and Grow Clinic will be building a Train Engine with Rub & Smell stickers.

To sign up for this Build & Grow Clinic, simply go to the Lowes Build & Grow Clinic website, which they have redone to make it more user friendly. I am loving this new website. You register all your information. Then when you visit the website to sign up for an upcoming clinic, all you have to do is sign in and check which kids you are signing up. Don't forget to print and sign the waiver. And you and your child(ren) are ready for a really cool FREE hands on project.

Once you and your child(ren) complete the project they will receive a neat patch to put on their Lowes Build & Grow apron. If this is your first clinic, your child(ren) will receive a free Lowes Build & Grow apron and goggles:) The more clinics you do, the more patches you get to put on your kids apron and they can show them off with pride:)

Our Circus Adventure

I found out the circus was going to be in town totally by accident.  I talked with hubby and we decided to go.  The tickets weren't bad in price plus Nathan and little Michal got in for FREE :)

None of the boys have ever been to the circus.  So, this was quite a treat for them.  They all had a blast and loved the circus.  They even seemed to enjoy the overly expensive popcorn and over sugared drink.  I thought with all the sugar flowing in their bodies, they would be wired and bouncing all over the place.  Nope, they actually say sat still and watched the whole performance.  I was amazed.  Trying to keep 2 young boys seated is sometimes quite the challenge :)

I will never again complain about movie theater snacks being expensive.  If you thought buying popcorn and drinks at the movies were costly, try going to the circus- oh my :)

Here are some pictures of our circus adventure:

 The boys really enjoyed their very first circus adventure.

I can't wait to see where our next adventure takes us :)
