With Mommy in Cibolo

I have no idea how to turn this picture, but I thought it was cute :)


No, no, please darling... wear your sunglasses!


This picture is funny because Miss Evie loves to use my hair as a handy handle to hold onto. I'm often brushing out tangles from this spot... lol :)


Gigi bought her sunglasses since her sweet little blue eyes are so light sensitive. Sadly, she will not wear them for more than a moment! Here I am giving her a rock to try and distract her from them...


She's learning how to wave!


We are loving this weather.

No fuss Lasagna

I really needed a new "go to" easy recipe for lasagna. I tried a new one tonight, and it got good reviews all around :) I also want to start keeping track of how much certain recipes cost total and cost per serving so I can be more budget conscious with my cooking. Here it is all out...

Frozen chopped spinach... 0.55
Mozzerella (16 oz)... 4.30
1 egg... 0.21
Pasta Sauce... 1.89
15 oz Part Skim Ricotta... 1.67
No Boil Noodles... 2.00 (guessing, since I had these on hand)
Oregano and Garlic Powder... 0.10

Total Cost... $10.72
Approximately 8 servings... $1.34

Here's the link to the recipe! (I added the spinach for more punch)

Evangeline Pictures

Playing with blocks... she loves to take things out of boxes!


I think this face is SO cute, I just had to put it up :)


With the Bluebonnets... there's just a few so far, but she loved picking this one apart!!

Chicken Tetrazzini

Here's another favorite, all out...

1 pkg extra wide Egg Noodles... 1.53
1 pkg pimento stuffed olives... 2.78
1/3 stick of organic butter... .33
Italian Seasoning... .05
Chicken... 2.37
Parmesan Cheese... .50

Total... 3.78
This will serve us twice, so that makes... 1.89 per serving.

Cheap Healthy Good

Hubby sent me this, and with his help, I think I'll try it!

I'll need hubby's help because as a person who doesn't eat meat that often, and has never, ever (maybe not even seen?) dealt with a whole, uncooked chicken, I might have problems. Also, as I told hubby, as a reformed vegetarian who struggles to touch meat, picking all the meat off of a chicken might make me not want to eat it... and might make me gag/ die inside a little bit.

Here's to trying new things and having wonderful understanding hubbies! :)
