Watch out Betty Crocker...

First off I want to say a huge thank you to Keisha over at blogsforbabies for doing this awesome make-over and I love it!!! Also I big thank you to Amie for holding the contest that I WON!! I still can't believe I won something.
Now we may continue...
My family has real problem when it comes to eating out. It's not that I don't like to cook. It's that I do not plan ahead.So when it's 4:00 and I still haven't even thought of supper we head out.Plus my old stove was horrible.It burnt everything you tried to cook or it was not cooked enough. So this week I decide not to eat out at all. Well Monday through Friday at least. We have a lot going on this weekend so I knew we couldn't stick to it. So here is just a couple of things I made from scratch!! I have to say I am very proud of myself:)

I got this awesome chicken pot pie recipe from The Happy Housewife.

This is the first time I have ever made a pie crust:)

Posted by PicasaMy friend Tracy gave me a starter of the Amish friendship bread.It was SO good!

I also got this Shepperd's pie recipe from The Happy Housewife.
I forgot to take the picture until we had already started eating.
I really enjoyed cooking this week and my hubby was very proud of me too;)
I would like to find some good hot breakfast recipes too. So do any of y'all have good but easy recipes you would like to share with me?

Love the new look, congrats on the when.... We also eat out alot just cause I don't like to cook until unless I am cooking for other people cause my family I have to make 2 meals. But if you need a cheap chicken pot pie recipe let me know I did cook that last night and it is SIMPLE....

I truly love the new look, it cheers me up when I see it, it's bright and colorful!!
I know what you mean, there are many days when I have no clue for dinner and we end up heading out but that was my new years resolution to stop eating out so much and I have been cooking a lot more. I will have to check out these sites to get some of those yummy recipes! Have a great weekend!!

That is the story of my life. We too have stopped eating out (for the most part) It has really saved alot of money, but we get so bored eating the same old thing! I will have to try some of those yummy dishes.
