Cutting the Budget More

How to cut the budget even more you ask? I don't know.....

Created a Crock-pot Soup & Sandwiches night weekly this will cut down on what to make as long as we can all agree on the soup. I am not as picky as my other family members..I Love soup the only rules I have for soup are No Beef & No Pork anything else goes them they want (LOTS of Meat/Broth/Noodle maybe Rice)I want lots of veggies & no meat I prefer to use Lentils. So I am currently making Chicken Noodle Soup using the following ingredients. WE will also be having Cheese Crisps in place of the Grilled Cheese so I don't have to stay in the Kitchen and cook 5 sandwiches. What I really hate about dinner time is trying being the only one planning/shopping/prepping/ cooking/cleaning up.

Chicken Noodle (5.50 )

Next time I can cut this down if it goes over well buy cooking cheap pieces of meat and de-boning/ skinning myself)
  • 2 32 oz boxes of Chicken Broth ( one on hand & one bought $1.00)
  • 3 containers of Chicken Pieces purchased ( Already Diced up for $3.50)
  • 1 bag of egg noodle (had to purchase since I didn't have them $1.00)
  • 1/2 cup of minced carrots
  • 1/2 cup of minced celery
  • TBSP of Dried onion
  • Salt /Pepper/Garlic powder/onion powder
Everyone Liked this :O) it was very bland so next time I will spice it up

Yard Doggie


A few weeks ago this sad lonely very hungry yard dog arrived at a RR Yard where I work.
He was very skinny w/ his poor little ribs showing over the last 2 weeks everyone has been feeding him and he is getting closer to letting the men pet him but he is very afraid of them.
They have been feeding him daily for weeks and he is looking a lot better
Well today I was able to have him walk right up to me lick my hand and allow me to pet him very slowly just a little then he ran off.
After a little while I was able to get him to take a doggie treat from me and then he allowed me to pet him freely...

B&tch List 2 Vent

As of late I have been going nuts w/ things that irritate me or really piss me off. Be it at the local store/work or just at home so I decided to create a B&tch list to Vent...


  • Employee's who don't know what common things are these are people over the age of 30+
  • People speaking there native language and ignoring talking to the customer they are ringing up.
  • When your shopping and looking at something and someone steps in front/around you and starts looking at things as well in your face like your not even there.
  • Talking on cellphones
  • Getting Ready for work
  • Making Right Turns from the Left Lanes
  • Pulling right in front of you doing a lane change and stopping to go to the store on the right side of the road.
  • People who wait until the last second to merge
  • People who create drama just to create it
  • People who can't assist w/ daily job duties everyone is to do
  • 2 faced people

I have more to add but just wanted to get started
