    Thanks for the reminder! I made a batch in September and I have 1 lunch size portion in the freezer! That will be lunch one day this week when we don't have leftovers/plan!
    Need to make another batch of chili and the butternut squash soup I had plans to make! Saturday!!

    Well the oldest ate the cooked bacon so didn't make ceaser salad. I found a bunch of mini meatloaf that I had made that weren't really a hit lol. So instead I made meatballs (my sister gave to us on weekend) potato puffs and green beans. The oldest was napping so I put his dinner in Tupperware and in the fridge and cleaned the kitchen. He came up later asking what was for dinner and I told him. He then told the dog that it sounded really good lol! So he ate his dinner and then I heard him heating up his brothers later. So he did like it But I still need to deal with the odds and ends, tonight maybe!

    Hahahaha @ Frugalbigmama! When my DS was a teenager, he ate everything in sight. After a big meal (1/2 hour later) he would be asking what was for snacks cause he was hungry!!! I thought that he had someone else stashed in the house and was feeding them too. He ended up being 6'6" tall so I guess he wasn't stashing the food elsewhere. Now his favorite thing is my cooking cause that means he doesn't have to cook. (He is a professional chef)

    Yes I am finding that both my boys are endless pits! Hence my food prep and trying to keep healthy ready to heat meals in the fridge

    I blanched 24 pounds of asparagus that I got for $10. I saved the ends for soup too.

    I have had a big bin of half-used Christmas Card boxes for many years.. This year I am using them all up. I barely have time to send any, but, I feel that people will appreciate hearing from me no matter what is pictured on the front. After all, I liked them enough to buy them at some point and while I usually like to send relatives and friends who know each other different cards, they may see that someone they know got the same card from me that I sent to them.
    Since I have moved this year, people need to know my new address. Then I can get rid of yet 1 more bin in my need to purge extra things I don't need or have room for.

    I used old Christmas cards for gift labels this year rather than getting a new package of labels

    I asked for a price adjustment at Costco. Call of Duty is on sale for 15.00 less then what I paid and I had bought two (one for my son & 1 for my nephew) so that's nearly $40.00 coming back to me.
    Friends don't let real friends pay full price.
