Couponing Deals for the week of 12/10/2017

Couponing can be overwhelming and/or time consuming.  I was there once.  Completely overwhelmed with coupons and deals.  It doesn't have to be.  My advice to new couponers is to take it slow.  Start by picking up a Sunday paper and focusing on 1 deal for the week.  Soon you will be couponing like a pro :)

Our Menu Plan for the week of 12/04/2017

How is everyone doing? 

I know I have been absent for a little while on here.  The day after Thanksgiving our internet went out :(  That alone caused me great anxiety as I was supposed to go Live on Facebook for an online event.  We contacted our internet company only to find out our router went bad.  No worries~ they were going to overnight a new router.  We were set to receive it on Monday.

We received a router on Monday, unfortunately it was the wrong one.  They had no clue why the wrong one was sent and offered to send us a new one for a fee.  Ummmm no.  Once the fee was waived, it seemed like forever to get the new router.  It finally arrived and we finally have internet :)  YAY :)

We are now on the hunt for a new internet provider.  I am open to suggestions.  Comment below if have a recommendation :)

Here is our menu plan for this week:

Breakfast
Overnight Oats with fruit X2
Waffles with fruit X2
Banana Pancakes with fruit X2
Cereal with fruit
Banana PB Oats for me

Lunch
Egg Avocado (Egg Salad) with fruit for me
Sandwich with carrots, apple slices, blueberries and grapes for everyone else or leftovers

Dinner
Chicken Tator Tot Casserole with green beans and salad
Beef Stroganoff with peas and salad
Chicken Stirfry with carrots
Homemade Pizza
Dinner with family X2

Snacks and Desserts
Apples
Grapes
Bananas
Strawberries
Carrots
Popcorn
Pretzels
Tortilla Chips with salsa
Chocolate PB Nice Cream
Rice Cakes with PB
Celery with PB and raisins

Happy Thanksgiving :)

Our family would LOVE to wish your family a very safe and happy Thanksgiving.

May your tummies be full, but not too full, save some room for some pumpkin pie :) 

May your travels be safe and may you enjoy your day with your loved ones :)

May you laugh and share wonderful memories as you make new ones today :)

Give thanks to the Lord for all your blessings :)

I am thankful that the Lord blessed me with an amazing hubby and 4 wild and crazy boys.  I don't know where my life might of taken me without them :)

Take a moment and remember those who have gone to Heaven and can't physically be here today.

Our Menu Plan for the week of 11/05/2017

We decided that we wanted to do some freezer cooking.  We went over to The Large Family Table website and got some great freezer cooking meal ideas.

Instead of taking a day or two to prep, cook and freeze our meals, we have decided to make a large quantity, eat dinner and freeze the rest into additional dinners for our family.  Does that make sense??

For example, when I make Chicken Stir Fry, I make up enough for 5 dinners.  We eat 1, portion out and freeze the rest :)  Stocking up our freezer with easy dinners :)

Here is our menu plan for this week:

Breakfast
Overnight Oats with fruit X2
Waffles with fruit X2
Banana muffins with fruit X2
Bagel with fruit
Banana PB Oats for me

Lunch
Egg Avocado (Egg Salad) with fruit for me
Sandwich with carrots, apple slices, blueberries and grapes for everyone else or leftovers

Dinner
Chicken Broccoli Alfredo with salad
Beef Stroganoff with peas and salad
Stuffed Shells with green beans and salad
Chicken Rice Stirfry with salad
Pancakes, eggs, sausage and fruit
Homemade Pizza
Kielbasa Broccoli Pasta with salad

Snacks and Desserts
Apples
Grapes
Bananas
Strawberries
Carrots
Popcorn
Pretzels
Tortilla Chips with salsa
Oatmeal Raisin Bites
Cookies
No Bake Vegan Energy Balls
Chocolate PB Nice Cream
Rice Cakes with PB
Celery with PB and raisins
