Homeschool Review

We've been homeschooling for 4 years now. When we first got married, we wanted to homeschool, but my husband's family has 2 teachers and we were pressured into doing things the 'normal' way. It didn't work out for us. With one child being special needs and the other just being wonderfully weird, public school wasn't…

Silence

The worst part about being unhappy in the workplace is that you can't talk about it. WHY IS THERE A FIGHT CLUB RULE WITH EMPLOYERS? Now I get that they don't want disgruntled employees blasting the company and scaring off potential employees or even customers. And, to be honest, I would definitely have thought twice…

Stovetop Cheesy Broccoli Rice With Ham and an Update

Continuing on with my 4 new recipes for my 66 dollar grocery run week, I popped over to Buns in My Oven for some Cheesy Broccoli Rice with Ham. I always encourage my family to try new food. But sometimes the yummiest looking recipes don't always turn out yummy to us. It could be that my hubby…

Penne Ham and Pea Skillet

I mentioned in a recent post that I had planned on 4 new recipes this week. A Week of Groceries Tonight was the first. The recipe is from Julie's Eats and Treats. It used 3 cups of the leftover ham. I did use an extra cup of broth and dry Parmesan instead of shredded. But it…
