Turkey Roll-ups

This is super easy & pretty good. My family liked it :)

  • turkey sandwhich meat
  • cooked stuffing (I used turkey stove-top stuffing)
  • turkey gravy

Roll stuffing in lunchmeat. Pour gravy over them. Cook at 350 for 30 minutes.

Pioneer Women

PW is pretty famous around here. I have made a few of her recipe's lately & they are great! Here are a few things I have made.

Cinnamon Bread My family loved this. Beau ate it as is & Piper &I would toast it & put a little butter on it. YUMMY!

Restraunt Style Salsa, my husband & I think this is some of the best salsa we have ever eaten. It makes alot too. I think I made myself sick I ate so much!
Dinner Rolls!These rolls are so good! It made 59 rolls so I froze what we didn't eat for dinner & it should save some money!

Ashley's Monthly Menu

In an effort to save money, I decided to do a monthly menu for the upcoming month.  I am going to get all the stuff that won't go bad for the month in one trip and then just go back weekly for the little things I need like fruits and veggies.  It's just an experiment to see if planning this way can save us some money on our grocery bill.  So, here is my monthly dinner menu:

1.  Black Bean Tacos
2.  Spaghetti
3.  American Lasagna
4.  Tacos
5.  Hamburgers
6.  Mexican Chicken Soup
7.  Roast
8.  Chili
9.  Tater Tot Casserole
10.  Salsa Mac and Beef
11.  White Chicken Chili
12.  Breakfast for Dinner
13.  Frozen Pizza
14.  Black Bean Tacos (again)
15.  Spaghetti (again)
16.  Hamburgers (again)

I only included 16 meals b/c the other days we will do things like leftovers, eat at my parents house, eat out a couple of times, and do simple things like chicken nuggets, hot dogs, and mac n cheese!

I'll let you know if we save any money on our grocery bill by planning this way!  :)

I'm Back

I have been slacking on the recipe blog the past few months.  It's hard for me to cook in the summer when it's hot and especially this summer being hot AND pregnant....the last thing I wanted to do was stand in the kitchen and cook!  :)  But I'm back!  I am going to try and post some of the recipes that friends have sent to me the past couple of years that I have done a yearly recipe swap!  Hopefully, we can get most of them on here so they can all be in one place. 

If you have any recipes you love to make for your family....please send them our way so we can post them!!
