I made it through another Thanksgiving declaring my usual stance, "...I'm never, ever, ever, cooking again!" (total lie)  It was yummy and blessed though.  I'm a fortunate brat that has plenty to be thankful for, and I am.  We almost didn't celebrate this year; Bubba had planned to work extra hours and we didn't have family coming to visit.  But, at the last minute, (the day before) we decided to buy the ham and start cooking in honor of all that we have been blessed with this year. 

And it was good.  Our bellies were bloated.  Our hearts thankful.  And we had leftovers for a few days.

Life is joyful!

Once in awhile I like to share what we eat.  It's something we all have to do and sometimes, when we are trying to think of something to make for dinner, it's nice to have ideas thrown out there for us to use. 

We live on a very tight grocery budget so our meals are usually simple and kid friendly.

Dinners:

Oven fried chicken w/ roasted brussel sprouts and steamed carrots

Chicken Fajitas w/ tex mex rice

Meatloaf w/ pan seared green beans and onions

Spaghetti w/ garlic bread and side salad

Turkey burgers on whole wheat buns w/ baked fries

Turkey BLT w/ baked pasta crackers

Breakfast & Lunch

Toast/oatmeal/waffles

Sandwiches/bean chili w/cornbread/chicken strips
