And then there's this guy.David Brody and I are doing a new show called The Brody File. We like to call it "Meet the Press with a dash of Comedy Central and a sprinkling of Jesus." More shamless self promotion, here.
Seriously, though, working SO MUCH and SO HARD over the last month has been good for me. I know I am doing what God made me to do and I am absolutely thrilled to get up every morning (okay, that part's a stretch) and go to do a job that I love to do. I know many people don't enjoy that blessing, and I am VERY thankful for it!
Really, I'm done now!
Now, I'm going to plug Mike's work! He landed a gig as a web guy for Elk Remodeling, a local company. He is managing the company's website and social networking, along with balancing a full load of school work and other projects. Busy guy!! We're still adjusting to our new roles, but thankful to have the work. Thank you, LORD!
So, this morning, we had leftover skillet-grilled peppers and mushrooms from our pizza (note, that was fresh, from scratch, homemade pizza, including the crust) in the fridge. Dana decided she'd throw together breakfast burritos since she had that sitting around. How great!
So, Dana has her creative outlet because she started being more frugal. It reminds me of that saying, "Necessity is the mother of invention." I think of soul food (you know we loves us some soul food), quilting, and so many excellent traditions the same way. Just having leftovers sitting around that need to be used leads to something so very gratifying.
2. I do not know how to freeze and thaw bread dough. So, I was trying to be all frugal/practical/awesome and I froze a loaf of bread dough to bake this past weekend. I followed the instructions that came up in my Google search, but my dough didn't appear to rise all the way... and it kind of looks like it got sick on itself. That's because I didn't wrap it tightly enough, and it kind of spilled out of the plastic wrap.. So, yeah...I am happy to report, however, that both were/are very tasty!
I was able to redeem myself this weekend with Paula Deen's Chicken Spaghetti. I thought I'd be able to link to it, but I got it from her magazine, which I guess they don't post online. I guess that makes sense if they're trying to get you to buy the magazine.That's pretty much what we've been living off of for the past two weeks! I am literally finishing up the Chicken Spaghetti for lunch today. Yummy! Tonight, Salmon. I don't know how, but I'll come up with something! :)
