Freezer Dinners ?!?! Don't mind if I do!

Winter/ RSV season is quickly approaching which means, LM, G, and I won't be going out much. I am ok with that I am preparing myself in many ways.. crafts for me and LM, internet shoppings, and FREEZER MEALS!

I LOVE Freezer meals, making, eating, thinking, and even planning! Why not join a group, weeeellll I did that once and the hubster didn't care for that. What you did not like that one person made 3 quesidilla's for one of her meals? Yeah between not getting equal meals then having ones that sounded amazing ending up tasting like shizz. It was just not worth it. HECK, maybe some of the ladies didn't like my meals... It probably happened. Either way it wasn't for us.

SO my plan: I have to make dinner daily so why not make an extra meal? Why not take a Saturday and make a bunch of meals? I could do that and I am going to. To prepare I made a pretty awesome list, and I thought I would SHARE! Do I have recipes for all these things pretty much, and I am going to type them all up and share with you HECK NO.... just google, ask, or use your own recipe. I am not an exotic cook, I don't make things with more then 6 or 7 ingredients I pretty much have ADHD for cooking, but what I do make is pretty darn good. Here is the list and enjoy!

1. Lasgana Rolls *found on pinterst and looks GOOD
2. Apricot Chicken
3. Creamy Ranch Chicken w/noodles
4. Buttermilk Chicken
5. Sloppy Joes on garlic Bread amazing!!
6. Stuffed Pasta Shells
7. Stuffing Meatloaf * Amazing.. I might post this recipe soon.
8. Chicken rolls/pillow whatever you want to call them
9. Bacon Wrapped Chicken
10. Broccoli Cheese Soup
11. Santa Fe Cheese Soup
12. Raspberry Pork
13. Aloha Pork Chops
14.Chicken Caccatore
15.Honey Pork *Great for stir fry
16. Woodland Park Beef Sandwiches
17. Beef Stroganoff
18.Sweet and Sour meatballs
19. Cranberry Chicken
20. Kaluha Pork
21. Taco Braid
22. Beef Stew

There is my list!! I thought that would at least find links for a few of the dinners because I am nice like that! On an unrelated note: Tuesday was LMs 4th birthday It was a hit and worthy of its own post. And today it really feels like FALL YIPPPEEE.

I did 2 things today!

I only did two things today.... my NICU project and make dinner. That's ok because I stayed up late reading The Help, because both LM an G went to bed early!

Project #1: burp cloths for the NICU.. sounds and looked super easy to make. Well it took me 2 days to do make ONE! They are cute and I bet it would be easy to make expect I don't sew that much and I am not really sure how to thread my machine properly. My nice neighbor came over twice to thread it for me. I have stuff to make 5 and by gosh I am going to make those 5. The NICU says they like to have 45 of one thing so that no baby gets left out................

Don't those look cute?!?!

This is what mine looked like:

Yeah... I bet after I make 45 mine will look awesome. One thing, I am a firm believer in washing fabric before sewing it. I washed the cloth diapers before sewing them and they kinda shrank BIG time. Don't let discourage you from making them, if you sew and need a cute present. CLICK HERE TO SEE HOW TO MAKE THEM.

#2 I made this super tasty dinner!! You can find out how to make it HERE.

They were sooo EASY and YUMMY and husband like them too.

We are #1

Remember when I had the "other blog" That one just was not working for me, I am such a different person since I was actively writing there. So time for a new blog, ahhh the beauty of blogger. A cute story: How I came up with the name of this blog. Do you Pintrest? If you don't YOU SHOULD. One of my boards is called For LM and G. It is all the cute ideas I want to do so I can be a good mom to my boys.......... As I was adding stuff to it, I thought that would be an excellent name for the blog I want. So it was born and ment to be. Cute huh??

Back to Pintest. Man that place is more additive than crack or Facebook. HOURS and HOURS have been lost. Irony: This is where I store all the ideas for want I my house to look like and fun things to do with my kids. But I can't do those things because I am to busy looking at crap on there. All while the house is a disorganized mess and the kids are running around naked, watching TV, and eating cereal out of the box. Oh the vicious cycle of life. PS: my mom has taking over my account on there because she doesn't have facebook or twitter, which you are required to have. Huh.

G had a Drs appointment today. It went well he isn't having surgery anytime soon. We have to wait 2 weeks after he is of oxygen before he can even see the Dr again. Oh the life of a NICU graduate. I feel good about it. I like the doctor and he isn't to worried about his herinas/hydrocele. I am to tired to worry anyways.
