Up on the Agenda today... sleeping, sleeping and cooking!

Mr. R took the girls to church today and let me sleep in.  I slept until 12:45!!! Wow, I couldn't believe it.

I have some ripe bananas that I know we won't eat all of, so I am going to make some banana muffins with my new muffin pan I got for Christmas.  For my birthday, Mr. R bought me a rolling pin and a pizza stone so I'm going to make 2 pizzas for dinner tonight so we have plenty of left overs.

I also soaked pinto beans overnight and just put them in the crock pot with home made chicken stock and lots of seasonings to make refried beans which I'll be freezing since I don't really have a plan to use them.

I think cooking larger batches of food so we have left overs and making sure I find ways to use up all our produce before it goes bad are 2 major reasons that we've been able to cut our grocery budget lately.

I've spent the least amount on groceries this month than I have in a long time and our freezer and cabinets are full of food!  It's a good feeling.


  1. Wow, you definitely slept in today:) Good for you!

  2. That's great that you have a house full of food. Sometimes sleeping in on a day off is just wonderful.
