Not Me Mondays!

Not Me Mondays! was started by McMamma. She is in the hospital with baby Stellan. So her blog readers are doing a special "Not Me Monday" that is all about Stellan.

I did not force my two oldest children out in to the freezing cold to take a picture for Stellans name gallery.

Prayers for Stellan

Give us this day our daily bread

I spend too much time figuring out where I am getting our physical bread and not enough time budgeting time for my spiritual bread.

I had about $25 total for our food.

Had I spent it in Westwood:
3 gallons of milk @ $4 each
2 loaves of Bread at $1.30 each
2 large boxes of cereal @ $3.50
3 lbs of apples @ $1/lb

But I went to Susanville and prayed on the way that I could get some cereal for $1.50, I literally prayed the whole way to Susanville.

For $23:
3 gallons of milk @ $2 each
8 loaves of bread @ 4/$1
4 boxes of cereal @ $2 each
12 lbs of apples @ 50 cents a pound

God provides.

Now if I only spent more time on my spiritual bread acquisition.

Easy creamy chicken/turkey stew

I KNOW you have a gallon size freezer bag of Turkey from Christmas/Thanksgiving!

Easy Creamy Turkey Stew
by Jenn Franklin

Left over turkey
8 cups of Water
1 lb carrots
1 head celery
1 onion
1 cup of barley
1 32 oz can of cream of chicken
Salt, pepper, garlic, Italian seasoning to taste.

Boil turkey for 30 min. Remove meat and set aside. Dice carrots, celery, onion and place in crock pot with broth. Add barley. Add favorite seasonings (Not too much, the cream of chicken has a lot of flavor). Cook for hours until carrots are soft. Add cream of chicken and diced up turkey from earlier. Heat it through and eat! Serves 12.

You can easily cut this recipe in half but use 6 cups of water.

I hate apple

I hate apple. There... I said it. Every time I sync my Ipod... something catastrophic happens... Last time I synced the stupid thing... the songs didn't appear on the ipod. Now my computer doesn't even recognize it is there. This happened with another ipod as well. I think they are doing something to make previous generations of ipods fail. But right now I am just pissed and full of conspiracy talk!
