Second Go around

whoa! This week seemed to fly by!

John's vest is finished!! Took me about 5 days of knitting, definitely fast and satisfying! The steeking was scary, but as I have read, it was completely easy :) I haven't blocked it yet, so no finished pics, but this is after I have done one armhole and the neck :)

It's only been three weeks since my last cooking adventure, but meat was on sale and I had the time this weekend to cook, so I went ahead and cooked the meals for March! I went bigger this month and prepared 13 different recipes and now have a nicely stocked freezer with even more variety! I will admit that this past month some of the meals were a little too familiar :) So this way I should only be eating the same meal once every two weeks (the 13th meal is moose roast and the 14th, spaghetti, but they were already prepped and frozen, so I didn't count them). I just love looking the freezer to see such variety and availability!!

Recipes for March:
  1. Sloppy Joes
  2. Chili
  3. Double Baked Potatoes
  4. Sweet n Sour Chicken
  5. Lasagna
  6. Shepherds Pie
  7. Sweet BBQ Chicken Drumsticks
  8. Moose Stew
  9. Ginny's Beans
  10. Chicken Quesadillas
  11. Bean Burritos
  12. Quiche Lorraine (an improved recipe over last months!)
Also just for good measure a pic of my little mad scientist, lol!


  1. I really like the way John's vest looks. THe colors are wonderful! I completely forgot (surprise, surprise) to ask about the steeking yesterday!

  2. SO I really want to do a planning day with you for recipes and try some mass cooking of my own. I think it would be especially nice as the latter half of the semester rolls around and I get even more busy! What do you think?
    BTW I love the ways John's vest turned out, and I ALWAYS love pictures of Mr. Noah. :D
