If your kids are anything like mine, they love ALL things Disney, and we have a vast movie collection as evidence With three boys, it’s no surprise that CARS ranks high on their list of favorites, but what fascinates little boys as much as Cars and Trains? PLANES! As parents, we too enjoy these movies because the dialog is funny enough to entertain us as well, without being inappropriate for the kids. Dane Cook is one of Nick’s favorite comedians, and today Disney announced that he will be the voice of Dusty in PLANES. My kids don’t realize it yet, but that announcement pretty much guarantees that Dad will take them to see this movie when it’s released in theaters later this summer! Read the rest of this entry »

Driven by an increasing urge to do my little bit towards addressing the environmental issues plaguing the planet I decided to buy the most green house gas-reducing car on the market. Read the rest of this entry »
It’s cold outside y’all. The kids are on winter break, we had several additional inches of snow this past weekend, and more forecast for the remainder of this week. This makes me want to keep my crock-pot full and brewing everyday. There is something about having the crock-pot on that just makes me feel like it’s warmer in the house! So, I am taking the kids to the store with me today, and we are going to get the ingredients to make some Taco Soup tomorrow night. I have two recipes to share with you. One is from my Mom, and the other is one I have had for years that is for those who need a lower sodium recipe. I tend to blend the two to create my own Taco Soup Recipe.

In our family, we have a child with special needs, I’ve been facing some medical issues, and Nick has some chronic hereditary medical issues that he takes medication for on a daily basis. With so many issues, it is necessary and practical for me to use the internet to try and find discounts to help us save where we can. I often get friends, family, and readers sending me messages asking where I find out about these discounts, so I thought I’d share some resources that I use with you, so you too know how to save money on Health Care Products.

I have Irish Heritage in my family tree, and there are a few recipes that are traditional for St Patrick’s Day. Many people enjoy eating Corned Beef & Cabbage, Irish Soda Bread, Shepherd’s Pie, or an Irish Stew. In my little family, we usually have my homemade crock-pot beef stew, and then I’ll add a Bisquick crust on to make it more like a shepherd’s pie. I hope this gives you a new idea to incorporate into your St Patrick’s Day menu this year!
One of my all time favorite recipes, since I was a little girl, has been Homemade Beef Stew. I can eat it year round. Confession 1 in this post is: I don’t like carrots. However, my kids do. They can’t get enough. I put 2 pounds of carrots in this recipe, and I serve theirs before mine so that I have less to wade through as I put mine into a bowl. In fact, they often eat them ALL and there aren’t any left for me to bother with I’ve included the recipe for my Homemade Stew at the very end of the post, and instructions for how I make the Bisquick Topping below. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do! Read the rest of this entry »
