- Making chicken fingers from scratch
- Keeping the calories in check
- Impressing my should-be chef of a husband

Sadly, this is the only picture I have of my creation. Dinner smelled so good cooking, that everyone was actually at the table waiting for me to give them their plates. The final product was the chicken strips, mixed veggies and applesauce (can't WAIT to hit the orchard so I can make homemade...that is something I HAVE done and am quite good at if I do say so myself). The dinner was a huge hit. My husband even commented on it again later saying how good it was. I could get used to this.
Not only is this a great way to keep the whole family organized with special events highlighted, but it's my own version. It gets me using my cricut even more, and is a fun way to add more decor to my home. It's not even September yet and I have that ready to go...and while it is waiting to be hung on the wall, I have already started planning out my October board. BOO!
I have also started to find a LOAD of craft ideas that I can eassily make for gifts for people. I too am feeling the crunch of the economy, especially with two growing kiddos, so homemade gifts are l\ooking like the perfect answer to the upcoming holidays. The ones I am finding and really liking are things that are inexpensive to make, plus you get the added bonus of telling someone you made their gift and that to me makes it more special. I have also decided (early enough this year) that I will be knitting some gifts. I have wanted to do this the past few years, but don't think about it until mid-November usually. Even with my fun little knifty knitters, I need more time than that.
