Day one of Deception ;)

19 Jan

Today I planned out my list of recipes to try from Deceptively Delicious by Jessica Seinfeld and I am super excited!! Not only is it going to fit in with my usual grocery list budget but it’s making twice the amount of meals that I was getting out of my usual buys! Curious about what I am going to try?

I broke it down into three separate sections. Breakfast, Lunch/Dinner, and Dessert, which could end up being two sections.. I’ll explain at the end!

Breakfast: French Toast & Banana Bread

Lunch & Dinner: Meatball Soup, Pita Pizzas, Mac ‘n’ Cheese, Spaghetti, Potato Soup, & Lasagna

Desert: Brownies

Along with our usual options

Breakfast: Blueberry Muffins, Oatmeal, Yogurt, Toaster Strudels, Pop-tarts, Cereal, Eggs, Sausage, Bacon, and Biscuits

Lunch & Dinner: Salads, Egg Salad, Cheese Ravioli’s, Chicken Nuggets, Bagel Bites, Pizza Pockets, Chicken Cordon Blue, Chicken Parmesan, Taco Soup, Quesadillas, Tacos, Hamburger Helper, Easy Chicken, Cheesy Potatoes, BBQ Chicken, Chicken Cacciatore, Taquitoes, Hot Dogs, Meatballs (Subs), Teriyaki Chicken Rice & Corn, PB&J’s, Deli sandwiches, Grilled Cheese, Shiskabobs, Steaks & Baked Potatoes

Dessert: Candy candy candy candy! 🙂

So this might last me four weeks instead of two weeks and I’ll be happy with whatever I can get!! If I do stock up enough for four weeks I could really use the second grocery run money for some nice vacation time 😉

Tomorrow I’ll be grocery shopping and preparing food all day 🙂 So each day this coming week I am going to try out one or more of the recipies and do a review with pictures included! I’ll even let you know what B says since he’s the picky eater 😉

Love Always,


Cricut Design Studio Round 2!

19 Jan

Okay so I finally got ahold of someone and the reset the serial number and it’s now registered under my name! Hoorayy! Then I went to get it all ready and started designing and realized that the USB cord was connecting to my Cricut Cutter.. geez laweez. So since this thing was registered in 2007 it had some updating to do. I spent the rest of the night doing updates only to find out that I can design with all the cartridges but I can’t cut anything out unless I actually own the cartridge. The description on the website did not say that and it totally led me to believe that I wouldn’t need to purchase any of the cartridges!!! So here I am, not showing you any pictures, no new designs and fun things cut out, because I need to save up the money to buy the cartridges 😦

Luckily two of my friends back home have Cricut cutters and one of them has design studio, so I am getting tips and tricks to help! So maybe in the next few months I’ll have things to show? .. Total bummer I know..

So I think I am going to stick to sewing for the next couple of weeks because I have everything known to man to make whatever project I want!

Let’s just hope everything else goes well today so I can actually accomplish something!

Love Always,
