Dinner Ideas

I dread 5:00 each day if I don't have a plan for dinner!  There is nothing worse in a household of boys than to hear "What's for dinner?" and not have something already cooking.  On the flip side, there is nothing better than to have it planned, cooking, and ready to serve BEFORE they get hungry!  Here are a couple of sites that are helpful in planning dinner.  After all, you already know each day that your family will be hungry later on.  Why not plan in advance and save yourself the stress?

I love Food on the Table!  They take your local grocery store sale flyer, match it with what you feel like cooking this week, and then allow you to either input your own recipes or give you suggestions for cooking.  After that, you can print off your grocery list and head over to your store!  Or even better, have them send it to your cell phone so that you don't misplace it.

Go to Meals Matter and input your information.  You can plan your meals, get recipe ideas, and print it off.  Good ideas here!

Check out a sample menu from The Dinner Page.

Check out the Crock Pot Girls site for lots of recipes using your slow cooker!

Everyday Food ~ Love it!

Okay, I love cooking and decorating and organizing our home, but I really love cooking and decorating and home organizing magazines!  It's easy to get too many and then they all start to look the same.  One that I have loved for years and actually keep on hand to refer back to regularly is Martha Stewart's Everyday Food.  It seems to have a lot of articles and recipes that really appeal to how I cook and how our family eats.  If you've forgotten about this little gem, it's time to check it out again!

You can also check out the Everyday Food Blog!

There used to be an Everyday Food show on PBS, but I haven't seen it recently.
Check out the website for all of the past episodes, with dozens and dozens of recipes!

Designer Fabrics ~ Great Prices!

If you love to reupholster, make throw pillows, or sew with designer fabrics, then this website is for you!  At NewToto, I have found fantastic prices on fabric pieces that I normally would not be purchasing due to the high price.  Their trims and tassels section is also great with good colors to go with your fabrics.  It's a great site to check out on a regular basis!
