Friday: Jell-O and fruit

The fan favorite of the week was the banana bread.   The least favorite snack of the week was the “pantry trail mix” because it was mostly cheerios, and needed some more variety. If I were to make it again I would add some pretzels, goldfish crackers, and possibly raisins or dried cranberries. The kids preferred the Jell-O without the bananas.

Sunday: Leftovers or sandwiches

This week went pretty well for our dinner score. I only had only one child who would not try the lasagna.  The biggest fan favorites were the pulled BBQ chicken, and the pancakes. I did not count the tomato soup on the scorecard for Thursday because the only ones who ate it were my husband and I.  We didn’t end up having tacos on Saturday night, as we ended up going to Wendy’s instead. We ate a late lunch on Sunday, and 
didn't end up eating the sandwiches.

Frugal Friday- Cutting the Cord on Cable

I used to love watching cable, but the truth was that I only watched about three or four channels, along with the cartoons that my kids watched almost constantly. Seven months ago we cut the cord on cable and have not looked back since.  Here are some tips that made life easier for everyone while cutting the cord on cable.

1.) Internet
Though we cut the cord on cable, but didn't go completely "off grid". We discovered that with high speed WiFi there still are many options for entertainment if you are willing to be flexible.



Movies and TV**

The obvious options for movies and TV shows online are Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.  All of these are paid subscriptions if watching recent shows is important to you. So far we have tried to stay away from a subscription and have opted for free services such as tubitv.com and YouTube.Tubitv.com is a website that hosts older TV shows, I was surprised to find a few shows that I used to watch on cable, and many more I had never heard o…

Thunderstorm

The lightning flashed, and thunder crashed as it poured . I was trying to help my oldest daughter finish her homework assignment. My four year old, who was supposed to be sleeping, came running back out to the living room. "Will the lights go out," she wondered. My oldest daughter chimed in, what if one of our trees falls down? What if it falls on the house? " I prayed for them, for safety in the storm, and gave them a flashlight. After  while the storm dissipated enough and I was able to get them to go to sleep.

After they went to bed, I thought about the storms in my life and how I often react to them in  similar way with anxiety and worry. I know that Jesus has the ability to control the storm, it is that I need to trust Him more fully in every area of my life.
