New Freezer Meals!

You all know how much our family has been enjoying my membership to MyFreezEasy, right? Well, my son “The Artist” and I just yesterday finished another session of freezer meal prep, and boy, does our menu look so good for the next couple of weeks! This is what we prepared:

This makes two meals of each recipe, and in actuality, there was enough of the Bacon meatloaf to prepare three loaves for the freezer!

Here is “The Artist,” mixing up some of the meatloaf . . .

Here is one of the completed recipes, a Keto recipe called Bacon Meatloaf. This is the very first time we have used Almond flour!

Here, we have 13 meals for the freezer, two each of Ritzy Meatloaf, Slow Cooker Cheesy Salsa Chicken, Slow Cooker Chicken Gyros, and Slow Cooker Shredded Mojo Pork. There are three bacon meatloaves, and since there was enough extra boneless chicken breast, we set that up in two freezer meals with BBQ sauce.

Here is the bounty of a couple of hours worked!

Wulf the Saxon From Heirloom Audio Productions: My Review

Once again, our family has had the great pleasure of listening to, and reviewing an audio adventure from Heirloom Audio Productions! This time around, we were blessed by Heirloom Audio Productions with a two CD Set of the wonderful production Wulf the Saxon, which we have so enjoyed listening to, just as we have enjoyed so many other of the terrific productions created by Heirloom Audio!

As a member of the Homeschool Review Crew, I have had the wonderful opportunity to review all but on of the “extraordinary” Adventures of G. A. Henty.

G. A. Henty was a master storyteller, and the Heirloom Audion Productions are based on the novels which he wrote in the latter part of the 1800’s. These are awesome stories, because they are stories from real, exciting history! Here is a little video from Heirloom Audio Productions to better explain the mission they have to produce wonderful, true history accounts, which will showcase the hand of God in all of our historical events.

Here are my reviews of other Heirloom Audio Productions that we have been blessed with:

In the Reign of Terror

The Cat of Bubastes

Beric the Briton

The Dragon and the Raven

With Lee in Virginia

Under Drake’s Flag

Heirloom Audio Productions also has a fairly new arm called Live the Adventure Club.

Here, you will find access to extra educational materials for the various audio adventures, articles of interest for parents, a discussion group and much more!

You’re likely wondering when I will get to telling you about Wulf the Saxon, aren’t you? Well never fear, because here we go!

Wulf the Saxon begins in England during the 1060’s, during the time when King Edward the Confessor is ruler. Wulf is page to  Earl Harold Godwinson, but he hopes one day to become a Thane ((in Anglo-Saxon England) a man who held land granted by the king or by a military nobleman, ranking between an ordinary freeman and a hereditary noble.

As a Thane, he would rule his family’s lands. As a page, he is learning to live in a way to show that he is ready for his position in life. During this time Wulf is forced to learn some hard lessons, humility and the importance of friendship, among others. He is sent away after an incident regarding his behavior, and after a time, forgiven and allowed back. He DOES become a Thane, and continues to serve the Earl, and of course, the King.

From this point on, Wulf survives a number of “adventures,” including a shipwreck and being held captive by the Normans. He learns many lessons during this time, and matures in his faith. We learn that continuing in faith is always going to make things end up as they should.

At a time in history when nobles mostly were married in order to create alliances and to prevent wars, Wulf learns that a fortunate few are able to marry for love.

This production, as always, has an awesome cast!

My Factory Original Parts Are Wearing Out!

You all know that I recently had a total knee replacement on my right knee. Plus, the left knee still needs to be done. And, I have cataracts. Well, now my left foot is bad, too! I have possibly a torn tendon, nerve damage, a definite dislocation, and may have to have a hammertoe redone! I’m telling you . . .

Getting old is NOT for sissies!

Freezer Meals!

As you know, we’ve been doing freezer meals for a while now. It has been the best thing ever! Now, there’s no more “oh, we forgot to check and see what we can put together for a meal, guess we’ll need to pick up fast food!” Why? because we can simply check what prepared meals are in the freezer, thaw and cook!

This is what we put together this time:

IMG_20180120_154121

We made two of each recipe for the freezer, in less than two hours of work.

Here is “The Artist” browning ground beef for the Beef Burrito Casserole, which was the only -pre-cooking needed.

Shiloh thought he was going to get something, before we sent him away to play with one of the other boys!

IMG_20180120_122918

Everything is done! Nine packaged up, and one made directly in the slow cooker and put into the fridge for Sunday dinner the next day.

IMG_20180120_153131

Here are some of the meals as we’ve had them . . .

Tomorrow night, we’ll be having Baked Cream Cheese Chicken, then we’ll start the rotation over again! Sometime next week we’ll be doing another prep. Looking forward to deciding what meals to make!

This is where all of my freezer meals come from, and it’s one of the best household expenses I’ve ever made! Check it out at MyFreezeEazy, I bet you’ll love it as much as we do!

Milestone Birthday!

My friends, this is what sixty looks like in my house!IMG_20170924_195933

Today is my birthday, but I actually went out yesterday for an early birthday lunch . . .

IMG_20180105_145356

Which was delicious! (yes, that soup is Zuppa Toscana  and the entree is Chicken and Cheese Piadina from Olive Garden, one of my favorite places!) I also went and got my nails done . . .

This is when I am warm . . .

IMG_20180106_194043

This is when I’m cold!

IMG_20180106_194134

I just love the color changing gel polish! They didn’t go all the way dark, because I just ran cold water over my hands to make them cold, and by the time I got back into the living room for a picture, they were warming up!

I have a post yet to do about Christmas, but really wanted to post this on my actual birthday.
