Setting Goals for 2010

I saw this on another blog and fell in love with the idea. I am going to set some simple yet attanable goals for this year. We have so many projects going on around here that a list of goals would help get them done...I hope..LOL

2010 GOALS

*finish upstairs bathroom
*new back door and wood work in the family room
*finish upstairs hallways
*pay off small credit cards and then add that money to the BIG one
*stick to a grocery budget of $200.00 a week
*go to the gym at least 3 times a week to not only help loose weight but to help clear my mind of my daily stresses
*only go out to eat once a mth
*pay off Rogers truck in hopes of putting back towards a newer one
*get rid of the house phone and other things we have and do not need that are costing us mthly fees

I will revisit the list often and maybe add to it.

Stove Top Meatballs

Easy Easy....

Stove Top Meatballs
2lb ground beef
1 six ounce box of CHICKEN Stove Top stuffing
2 eggs
3/4 cup of water

Mix well and make into balls then place on a cookie sheet (with sides in case there is much grease in your beef) bake about 20 mins turning once about half way at 400degrees...

ENJOY! I love these and so do the kids. We have also made them into burgers and grilled them and topped with cheese and onions..YUMMO...

Menu Plan Monday Pictures, Images and Photos

So I missed two weeks Im thinking...well...during Christmas break the girl and I were I missed that MPM and well Daddy made us Grilled cheese most of that week...LOL..He is the best. Then last week was Daddys birthday so I had a few guests over on Monday and we had lots of leftovers from that last a double cheese burger night...LOL BurgerKing has there double cheese burgers for a dollar...and well..I cant resist such a deal. We got 10 and had them twice last week...BAD I know but...

SO here is this weeks MPM!

Mon- Dinner the the Super Intendent of our School District
Tue- Hamburger Helper and green beans
Wed- Crock Pot Roast with onions carrots and potatos YUMMO!!!
Thu- Grilled Cheese and soup
Fri- either left overs OR scrambled eggs and sausage
Sat- Pizza here with friends..we are having a WII tournament..LOL..
Sun- Out for lunch and sandwiches for dinner

So I am working on using what I have...but that is hard when you run out of fruit, veggies and lunch stuff. So I went to Giant for some fruit yesterday and some snacks..and spent 95.00 NOT SURE HOW THAT HAPPENED! I still need veggies and I plan to get them at Aldis on Thursday when I take my sister for her groceries....sooo the goal for there is 30 or less!!! We have plenty of healthy snacks and lunch stuff for the next two maybe three that helps but I cant believe I spent 95.00 on it. I need to re work that one cause I NEVER SPEND that much at once. UGH!
