I'm back....for now.....

Well, right now, I'm back. For how long, I don't know. My schedule at work is changing to where I will be doing overnights until Christmas.

So anyhow.

I should talk about how my Thanksgiving meal went. It was pretty awesome. I mean some of it was pop in the microwave and cook, but it was that way because I had to work that day and I only had so much time to get it done.

Menu was:

  • Roasted turkey (in the crockpot)
  • Mashed potatoes
  • Green bean casserole
  • Mac and cheese
  • Green beans (husband won't eat green bean casserole)
  • Gravy
  • Stuffing
  • Apple Enchiladas - I HIGHLY recommend using fresh apples instead of the canned pie filling.
  • Hot chocolate brownies
  • King Hawaiian rolls
Everything came out really well. I was not fond of the mac and cheese. I have to do something next time I make it that way to make it taste cheesier. Oh, I know. Use a different cheese sauce or make it homemade.

My husband got a car for himself (finally). Now he can find a better job that Hardee's but I don't know if that's going to happen. He might become a general manager whether he wants it or not. Hopefully something will happen with one of these places he's applied before that happens.......

Him getting a car makes the finances a LOT tighter. Not a fan of that so close to Christmas with Miss Bug's first Christmas coming up, but it is what it is.

I need to get a blank cookbook so I can put recipes in it. I really don't want to use a computer to keep them. Things can happen to a computer, and I'm a little old fashioned when it comes to things like that. Sometimes, it's just better to have a cookbook done with paper and pen.

Tuesday, November 20, 2012 much for doing blog planning

Yeah, oops. Haven't blogged in a month. To be quite honest. I haven't felt like it.

5 days after my last post, my granddad passed away. I haven't felt like doing much of anything. Couponing, anything. I'm getting by right now. My coupon notebook....yeah, it's a mess. HOT mess.

Just getting by.....yup....just getting by...
