I’ve really wanted to have something to blog about. And I could blog about the busy-ness of life. But I haven’t had time!
Last week was a crazy busy week for me. I’m not sure why it seemed so chaotic, but it did. Looking back, I’ve forgotten half of what I did last week. That’s probably a good thing.
I am working on the laundry room shelves and am nearly finished, but the drying time is slowing progress. But they will be done hopefully tomorrow and I’ll have a post to add then.
In the meantime, I have been in the mood to try some new recipes. I require that half my recipes be easy and this past week they were ultra-easy. Spaghetti and meatballs, hot dogs with mac and cheese, kielbasa, sloppy joes…you get the picture.
So last night and tonight I’ve been printing out recipes from http://thepioneerwoman.com/ and http://mealmakeovermoms.com/
We bought a half a beef a few months ago, and I’m at a loss of what to do with anything besides ground beef since I rarely buy other “hunks” of meat. Pioneer woman is helping with that. The other link I was directed to by a podcast that I found yesterday called Manic Mommies. It’s very funny and great to listen to while cleaning up the house. They interviewed the ladies behind Meal Makeover Moms, and I checked out there sight this evening. There were several recipes that I thought sounded easy and tasty, so I printed them out as well.
Now, my recipe collection is totally out of control and unorganized. It is such a daunting task that I am trying to start from the point forward with being more organized and then slowly working through the older stuff I have.
So to start I purchased some postcards/index cards made by Avery. They come 4 to a sheet with perforations on them to make 4 X 6 cards. I found a template on their website and then copy and paste the recipes to them using Microsoft Word. It takes a little bit of editing to get them to fit right, but this way I don’t have a million full sheets and no way to organize them! I can easily pop them into either a 4 x 6 index card box, or even a photo album to keep them protected from messy hands.
So this begs the question…are your recipes organized?
