Happy New Year & Menu Plan

By Kira On December 31, 2011 No Comments

Happy New Year Everyone!! Are you planning anything fun for this evening? We are planning to have a family slumber party with some friends and their kids this evening. Exciting day for my kids who typically don’t get to do slumber parties or sleep overs. Should be a fun filled evening of good food, fellowship and I’m sure some kid craziness! My kids helped me make some Muddy Buddies earlier (ya not really a sugar free / grain free but a family tradition :-) ) to bring tonight and I am working on some fun count down activity bags for the kids. FUN times ahead!!

So on a different topic…Menu Plans. This coming week I am planning some simple tried and true budget friendly recipes. They are for the most part Sugar Free / Grain Free / Dairy Free aswell.

New Year Goals…

By Kira On December 29, 2011 2 Comments

I LOVE Christmas! I also love this time after Christmas…it is calm, not a lot going on outside the house, there is time to just be home, time to clean the house, put away ornaments, organize new toys and items. I love this time! I also love that as I get the house ready to start back into the new year there is time to reflect on this past year…the good times, the rough times, the struggles and the victories. Times when I can see God working in our lives, times when I have drawn near to him and times when I should have drawn nearer but instead allowed the world to pull me away. The thing I find about reflecting and listening for God’s nudgings is it allows me to see places where I can grow or change and allows me to refocus my life.

First Menu Plan of the New Year!! How are you doing on your New Years Resolutions?? I am excited to say that so far I am on track with my goals!!

Ok now for the Menu Plan :-)

Monday – Tomato Rotini Soup w/ Flat Bread Bread Sticks

Tuesday – Potato Soup (I am hoping to freeze a few meals worth of this)

Wednesday – Chicken Tacos

Thursday – Freezer Meal

Friday – Freezer Meal

Saturday – Leftover / mini frozen meals

You will probably notice this year at least for the next few months that I am going to try to plan a couple meals a week as freezer meals and try to cook one meal a week that will re-stock my freezer supply. This will save me some stress and time as it is easier to cook one big meal than multiple smaller meals (also saves

New Year Resolutions

By Kira On January 2, 2011 No Comments

Do you do New Year Resolutions? Do you stick with them?

This is a time of year that I like to spend some time thinking back over the past year and thank God for the blessings he has given me…I have alot to be thankful for! An amazing husband, 3 wonderful healthy kids, a job, a roof over our head, vehicles to drive, lots of fun memories and the list could go on.

I also like to take time to reflect on what I could do differently in the coming year or what changes I could make in my life. This year a few of my goals are:

  • Read through the entire Bible ( I am going to use the Chronological Bible and follow along with this site for added support as I work at this goal)
  • Read a Proverbs a day to my kids (we will be using one
