Menu Plan Monday: Aug 30th

It was so hard to get this week's dinner plans together for some reason. I think I'm just a little bored with what I've been cooking. However, Vince is out of town for most of this week and I need to cook just what the kids will like and eat. I'm pleased with what I've finally decided on~with input from the *peanut gallery*:)

I admit I sometimes don't eat very well when Vince is out of town. I'll just fix something child-friendly for the kiddos and then just snack around for myself. But then I get all cranky because I haven't had anything good to eat...haha So I'm determined to make good meals for all of us this week!

I did try a new-to-the-kiddos recipe this past week that was well-received, so I'm sharing that with you today. I always love it when The Princess says "Mom, you can add this one to the list!".

Quick Quiche
3 eggs
1/2 cup biscuit mix (like Bisquick)
1/2 cup butter, melted
1-1/2 cups milk1/4 tsp. salt
Pepper to taste
3/4-1 cup shredded cheese
Whatever add-ins you want, such as:
bacon, chicken, ham, turkey, mushrooms,
any combo of veggies...(all pre-cooked)
Mix the eggs, biscuit mix, butter, milk salt and pepper in a blender and blend well. Stir in the cheese and whatever meats and veggies you would like. Pour mixture into a buttered 10" pie dish. Bake at 350F for 35-45 minutes or until center is set. Let cool for 10 minutes.

Here's what's cooking this week:

Monday: Chicken Pot Pie
Tuesday: Biscuits w/Chocolate Gravy, Eggs and Bacon
Wednesday: Potato Soup
Thursday: Homemade Pizza
{small group} Green Chile-Chicken Casserole
Saturday: Grilled Steaks, Baked Potatoes and Summer Squash

Yum! I love quiche and don't make it nearly enough as I should, especially since it's a fairly easy dish to make. Your menu looks like it will please your kids and yourself at the same time. I've never heard of biscuits w/ chocolate gravy... I may have to give that a try with my kids sometime! Thanks for the ideas. =)

Making Notebooks

Recently I tried out a new craft idea~and it was SO much fun!! And extremely frugal, too. That's always a bonus, right? So here we go: 1. Take your basic composition notebook (purchased at the back-to-school sales for .99 each). 2. Go to your craft supplies and get your Mod Podge ready, along with a good paintbrush. 3. Look through all those scrapbook papers you've been randomly collecting and choose some. 3. After choosing your paper for the cover of your book and trimming it to fit, start *painting* the cover with the glue. Next, give the back of your paper a good coat of glue, too. (I left the binding uncovered so that I could use a contrasting paper there later on). 4. Glue it on! Remember to smooth out any air bubbles under the paper. 5. Flip the cover open and make a few cuts on the corners so that they will fold over nice and neat, then add a little more glue to the edges of the inside cover and a little more to the paper edges. 6. Fold them over a

The Making of an Egyptian Death Mask

We are learning all about the ancient world this year with Story of the World I and loving it! We've been learning a lot about Egypt, of course, which is completely fascinating. Most recently we have studied the New Kingdom of Egypt, which includes the story of King Tut. So we decided making an Egyptian death mask in the style of King Tut's would be a fun project. First since it was too cold at the time to paper mache in the garage (it probably would have frozen instead of dried-ha) and it was too messy to do it in the house, we decided to pick up a couple of cheap craft masks at Hobby Lobby. Next we cut out cardboard shapes to complete the shape of the death mask, attaching them with hot glue. Vince even put a little detail on the *beard* with the hot glue per The Princess' request. Then the kiddos started to paint them with this metallic gold tempera paint. It worked okay for the cardboard, but would not coat the plastic of the mask. We thought maybe a second c

Door Hanger Chore Charts

My kids have had a chore chart for a while.  It's one of those magnetic boards and they share it.  However, it's not by their rooms and often they (and I) forget to update it.  Plus it's a little bulky.   When I saw the concept of a door hanger chore chart on Pinterest, I loved it!  It was compact, right there were the kiddos could see it coming out and going into their rooms, and it costs almost nothing to make.   I headed over to one of my favorite stores: Hobby Lobby, of course.  They  have these little wooden door hangers for .79.  I also grabbed a couple of packets of decorative buttons for $1.99 each.  I already had the clothes pins and the paint so those cost me nothing.   I began by painting the door hangers (I used tempera paints because that's what I had).  Then I grabbed a fine point Sharpie and the clothes pins and started writing chores on them, making sure to write them correctly so they will clip on the right direction.   The left
