Why making the time to cook saves TIME and MONEY

We've all said it: "I don't have time to cook." With the "un"routine of summer I have been slacking in the meal planning and cooking department and I miss it. So for those who don't have the time think about this: How long does it take to go to a restaurant and eat a meal? How much does it cost? How many of us have run out for a bag of milk, come back an hour later with $40 worth of stuff we never intended on buying....and forgot the milk? Today I wanted to take care of breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks for the next couple of days so I didn't need to worry about it. At 5pm it is chaos at my house so no, I don't have time to cook I started at 845am. In about an hour and a half (which included two fights over the toy cars, juice refills, phone calls and channel changes) I had a roast in the slow cooker, potatoes washed and wrapped in foil, banana loaves baked, egg salad sandwiches and tuna pasta salad made. This, combined with the fruit, yogurt, crackers, tomato cucumber salad and leftovers from last night, means I don't even think about feeding anyone til sometime Friday! So at 4:00 this afternoon I took the kids to the splash pad. And know what? We were the only ones there...guess everyone else was trying to figure out dinner!

What's For Dinner Tonight? Mexican Inspired

This one is always a popular go-to in our house. I love that its quick, easy, and relatively inexpensive especially if you can find chicken on sale!
*2 boneless skinless chicken breasts (since this recipe also contains kidney beans and cheese this is my meat stretching dish. I use 2 chicken breasts to feed 4 of us)
*one can of drained and rinsed kidney beans
*half a green pepper
*half a jar of salsa
*can of corn (optional)
*cheese for topping

Brown chicken in a pan and cook rice in a seperate pot as per directions. Break into chunks, add green pepper and sautee until slightly tender. Add kidney beans and salsa and corn if you have/want it. Sometimes I toss in the salsa package that comes with the taco kits or some bbq sauce for an extra bit of flavor. Cook on med-high heat for another 10 minutes or so. Add in cooked rice. Serve topped with shredded cheese on its own or with a salad!

Menu Plan for this week (sort of)

So I broke two of the cardinal rules of grocery shopping today...I went hungry AND with grumpy kids. As a result even with a list we didn't get as much as I had originally intended. That's why this is a sort of menu plan! You will notice that I have quite a bit on hand and as I get back onto the swing I will stock up on certain items when they are on sale to work into future menu plans. So with what I had on hand and todays little shop (for under $25) I have 4 breakfasts, 3 lunches, 3 dinners and snacks!

*muffins and bananas
*egg salad sandwiches
*scrambled eggs and toast

*perogies and veggies
*salad and grilled cheese
*nuggets and fries

* chili bake (recipe to come)
*sausage on a bun and salad

Snacks and desserts:
*nutrigrain bars
*veggies and dip
*oatmeal cookies (recipe to come)

Grocery trips to follow in another post. Stay tuned!

Does it Really Work? Newspaper to Clean Your Mirrors

Welcome to Kawartha Bargains newest weekly feature that I have entitled "Does it Really Work?" With two little kids in the house who are obsessed with admiring themselves in the mirror (and why wouldn't they be they are so darn cute) my mirrors tend to look like this:

I had heard somewhere that you could use newpapers instead of paper towels to clean your mirrors and since newspapers arrive for FREE twice a week and paper towels...well even on sale we seem to go through a I thought I'd give it a try. Now I was sure that they would scratch so I picked a mirror that we will eventually be getting rid of and got out my newspaper and windex (although you could use vinegar as well) and got to it.
And here is out it turned out:
Yep, that's the same mirror not me taking a picture of my entry way! Cleaning your mirrors with newspaper really DOES WORK! Plus you are recycling AND saving money. BONUS!
