Wednesday, Crazy and littles!

     Yesterday did not go as planned , but I do have three wedding dresses done so that is good.  One was picked up yesterday and the other will be picked up today.  So that means I will really have to get some things done after the kids leave this evening.

     It is also the day I take a meal in so I have to plan for that.  I made two squash casseroles yesterday and I am going to make fake shake and bake chicken and some rice krispie treats.  I have stuff left over from the wedding to use up.

     I have never made a squash casserole and this was delicious
  I mixed yellow squash sliced thin with and onion sliced thin , then added 1/4 cup of mayo and 1/4 cup sour cream, salt and pepper to taste.  Layer this and cover with 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese.  I then added a topping of one package of chicken stuffing.  I normally don't buy processed stuffing but these were on a close out for .25 a box and I needed to use them.  This was so good although not low call in any way. A keeper of a recipe.

     The kitchen did not get cleaned last night as I was finishing up the hand work on a dress. So I need to go up and clean and get some things ready for dinner. I want to be able to get into the shop when the kids go down for their naps. Or maybe if I get everything done I can take a nap with them.  Doesn't that sound great?

     Another chart was complete yesterday.  I am amazed at the amount of money savings I have had.  This is what a snowball does for you, also being so busy you can't get out and spend money helps.

     I also was able to get my ticket booked to go see Sis and Sluggy.  We are doing a girls trip early October.  I can hardly wait it will be a nice break that I will really have earned.

     Well I need to figure out how I am going to press a wedding dress and make a meal with two little ones under my feet.  Wish me luck!

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  1. Look at you go on all those completed charts. You rule!
    I love a good squash casserole. We have it often with just green beans and coleslaw.
    You are so kind to take meals on a regular basis!

    1. It was so funny yesterday because of the littles I was behind and here it was 6 p.m. and I usually contact my friend about 4 p.m. to let her know when I am coming. So at 6:01 I texted her to say I was on the way and when I got to the house she was teaching a lesson (on our old baby grand that we gave away when mom moved in as we got hers) so I just took the meal into her parents apartment. Her mom who still recognizes me said that Amy had just been downstairs between lessons worrying about dinner and I texted that I was on my way. Amy threw her hands in the air and said "Thank the Lord!" and ran back upstairs to continue teaching. Amy's dad just sits in a chair and doses now but he does like to eat!

    1. You know I kind of am, I think just the weight of the wedding and things getting financially easier is starting to take effect. I still have too much to do but I can see that what I am doing is working and that this too will end eventually. How are you doing my friend? I went into a real depression after my last one left. It took about 6 weeks to realize I was okay.

  3. I think the nap idea sounds good. Then you'll be refreshed for getting things done later, after the kids go home.

    1. I now and then I have to decide, do I want to use the rest of my inheritance to just pay the darn thing off and then put the money back?

  5. Hi Kim,

    I am stealing your squash recipe. It is making my mouth water. A nap sounds good to me. Enjoy one. Congrats on filling out another chaer. That mortgage will be gone before you know it.
