Busy Couple of Days

It's been a busy couple of days around here. School was cancelled on Thursday & Friday due to snow so my oldest was home from school and the two younger ones sure didn't want to miss out on a SNOW DAY, even though they are homeschooled. So we were all home and tucked away trying to stay warm despite the freezing temperatures outside. A few of their friends came over and they stayed busy playing games for the most part. They did go out a few times but didn't stay very long. Just toooo cold!
It's midnight here now and it is still 33 degrees so it's definately warming up. What a difference a day can make. (From -4 to 33 )
This was also the weekend that I do my monthly grocery shopping. I was able to talk my husband into going with me last night to do the bulk of the shopping and then I finished the rest of it up today. It's nice to have a pantry well stocked throughout the month and it seems to save me some money that way but it's a real chore to get everything in. My list that I take to the store is huge and so is our shopping cart or carts. But it's done for the month....YEAH! Just have to make runs for bread and milk every so often.
Anyways I hope to post a couple new recipes within the next few days. I made my husband's favorite Coconut Pie the other day and I have a new recipe using round steak. I haven't decided what to call it yet but I'm leaning towards Ranch Style Country Fried Steak. It was fried and then baked and had a different flavor and texture than my usual baked steak. I just have to sit and write it all down to make sure I didn't leave anything out before I post it. Enough for now, my eyelids are getting heavy so I'm off to bed.

We'll be waiting for those recipes. I could always use beef ones. I have two freezers full of it!
