Sneaky sneaky

Like most moms I am always trying to get my kids to eat more vegetables. Last summer when I was overrun with summer squash I finely shredded a lot and froze it in bags. I have discovered that I can add the finely shredded squash to spaghetti sauce and the kids don't even notice! It looks like grated parmesan cheese and is undetectable in taste or texture. Yay for sneaky vegetables!

DIY Furniture for a fraction of the price

I'm afraid Frugaldad and I both have the same disease. It's the "I'm not going to buy that because I can make it myself" disease. Which can totally save money, provided you actually make the item in question. You've seen my fabric stash. I almost only buy fabric with a specific project in mind. See that red fabric under the table? It's going to be a skirt for me. Someday. I've had it for over a year now with the intention of making a great holiday skirt from it, but its place on the priority list falls as I decide to sew Christmas presents and stuff. I end up with a huge pile of to-do's. (This year I've vowed to get through my to-dos before I buy more fabric but that is a post for another day.)  read more »

I'm so cute!

what a cutie!

Way behind...

on blogging!

I have a lot to blog about but a lot of the pictures are still on the camera.

Meanwhile, since the baby is a couple of months old now and I put on a few pounds over the holidays (after losing all my pregnancy weight in only a couple of weeks, thankyouverymuch) so my current focus is trying to lose some of the 40ish pounds that I have put on since Frugaldad and I got married and I had 5 kids. I've learned that I have been eating a lot more junk between meals than I realized so hopefully I can lose a lot of these extra pounds just by cutting out the extra snacks and stuff.  read more »
