I used to do it all the time, but have not done it in ages. So I decided to make a list of meals for the next week or so and see if I can stick to it!! I find it saves time and money if I have a plan, as I know ahead of time what I am going to make, so no last minute rushing around.
Here is my menu plan:
THURS 19TH: LIVER CASSEROLE & RICE
FRI 20TH: LEFTOVER PORK WITH PASTA AND VEGGIES
SAT 21ST: BAKED POTATOES WITH BBQ SAUSAGES
SUN 22ND: FISH & SALAD
MON 23RD: BEEF STEW
TUES 24TH: SOUP & HOMEMADE BREAD
WED 25TH: LEFTOVER BEEF STEW AND HOMEMADE BREAD
THURS 26TH: FRIED EGGS, HASH BROWNS & BAKED BEANS
FRI 27TH: LIVER, ONIONS, MASHED POTATO AND GRAVY
As I said my main downfall will be trying to stick to this.
I also went to the quilting store on Thursday as I needed some material, and help on this block I am doing. Both A.J. and Jacky are great people and Jacky comes from Britain. Jacky is one of these people who does things in her head, she doesn't need a pattern. Whereas I need a pattern and follow instructions to the letter!!! Suffice to say after talking with Jacky, I am not following the pattern they gave me to the letter, as Jacky said so!!!! I wasn't supposed to say that, as she told me not to write that on my blog, "as Jacky said so!!"
Anyhow here are some more photos from the store. I swear you could spend hours in there and still not see everything!! One of these days I am going to go in there and have a really good browse around, hopefully I'll also have a pocket full of money as well at the same time.
I got the material what I wanted and even booked a class for December, which was bad of me, as money is very, very tight at the moment, but it was only $15, and I don't think the supplies will be much, as we are using scraps of material that we have around the house. I want to make this something as a Christmas gift, so I can't mention what it is on my blog!!
