Menu Planning Monday

This is my first attempt at doing Menu Planning Monday. I hope y'all try some of the recipes that I have listed. My daughter is 14 years old and loves to cook. She has been helping out in the kitchen for a couple of years know and has practically taken over the kitchen. I use to call her my little sous chef. Now, I am her sous chef. She has far surpassed my kitchen skills at the age of 14. I use to burn every batch of snap peas that my mother picked from our acre garden. Anyway, it really is nice cooking with someone who actually enjoys it. I hope that by posting our menus with recipes that I might inspire you to try something different at least once a week.

Monday-Deviled Chicken and Grilled Stone Fruit, Jasmine Rice and Steamed Veggie

Tuesday-Eat Out using a gift certificate purchased using a code from here

Wednesday-Sloppy Joe's (this is our favorite recipe), chips and fruit

Thursday-Maui Chicken, Jasmine Rice and Tossed Salad

Friday-Steak, Potatoes and Corn on the Cob

Saturday-Dinner Out after church

Today, I'd like to share with you a site that Erin has shared with me and her other readers on her blog. The site is called Cozi and offers many great features, all for free. You can organize your calendar on their website and color code it to your family members. What I like about this site is that you can access it from anywhere, including your cellphone. It also has a place for list, that means no more worrying about forgetting your list at home. I can't wait to try it out. I believe that this is going to be a great organizing tool.

If anyone has used this site, please feel free to leave a comment about what you think.

Also, Erin is trying to win a sponsorship from Cozi. Please visit her site and post a comment on her blog about Cozi.

As always, remember to "Pay it Forward."

Free School Supplies @ CVS

CVS is having another 3 day sale on school supplies. Here is a list of what is being offered.

Caliber/CVS 100 page Comp Books .99 with .99 ECB Limit 2

CVS Erasers, Push Pins, or Clips .99 with .99 ECB Limit 2

Caliber/CVS Pencil Case .99 with .99 ECB Limit 2

Pilot Easytouch 2pk Pens .99 with .99 ECB Limit 2

Swingline Tot Stapler or Caliber Sticky Note 2pk .99 with .99 ECB Limit 2

Remember that you can pick these items up for very little out of pocket if you use your ECB that you have earned from previous deals. If you need too, split up your transactions and use the ECB that you earn from each previous transaction.And if you don't need school supplies then think about picking these up and donating to a teacher at a local school. Teachers often pay for needed supplies out of there own pocket. I feel that they are underpaid and like to help them out when I can.

As always, remember to "Pay if Forward."
