Farmer's Daughter

Although 20+ years removed from the farm, farmer's daughter is still a title I enjoy.
Growing up on a farm taught me many invaluable lessons, two of those being frugality and creativity.
Now as a wife and a mom, I love to put into practice what I learned growing up as a
Farmer's Daughter.

1/4/10 Menu

Monday - crockpot swiss steak/cottage cheese/green beans
Tuesday - potato soup with white beans and sour cream/French bread
Wednesday - deli meat sandwiches/chips/fruit (quick meal before church)
Thursday - crockpot moist drumsticks/salad/fat free egg noddles
Friday - eat out after Joel's game

A lot of the meals this week are in the crockpot because I work a lot this week. Joel has two away games which ramps the hectic level up a notch. I also am using the crockpot a lot because my oven is still on the blink.

Brian and I have unofficially started a fitness challenge - with each other not against each other. So my goal is to send him with healthy leftovers every day for lunch.

Along with Levi working, Megan will be back to substitute teaching and Joel will be back in school as well, which will necessitate me restocking my bowls. These have proved very handy with making lunches and provide easy access to after school/work snacking.

Bowls (which need filled) hold poptarts, granola bars,
oatmeal packets, snack crackers, snack cakes,
applesauces, fruit, drink mixes . . .
everything for breakfast, lunches, and snacking!

Recipes I will highlight this week: potato soup with white beans and sour cream (our new favorite) and crockpot moist drumsticks.

Love Me

We will be there on Monday!!! Any tips on the crock pot Swiss steak. I LOVE swiss steak and was thinking of trying out my Mamaw's recipe, but it's more complicated than the crockpot, so I would prefer that route!
