{CLOSED} One Dish Dinners Cookbook – Giveaway {10 Winners}

Day 3 of the daily giveaways for this week…This is happening way too fast! 10 more winners in the next 24 hours of my One Dish Dinners Cookbook!

I had a great time this morning in Dallas, and I’m headed back home to my baby. Well, not so much baby. Anymore. If I wasn’t expecting another one, I’d be a mess right now. This whole kid-life thing is happening way way way too fast. And then there’s the whole tension of “want them to grow up to be independent, but want them to stay close and little forever.” Gah…what’s a mother to do? I can’t and don’t even want to think about dropping them off at college. The mere thought makes me want to curl up in a ball and start rocking and mumbling. They don’t tell you these things in the pregnancy books…although I don’t think it would matter if they did. Life is wonderful and we’re so blessed to be raising up these rambunctious and independent boys!

Hello, rabbit trail.

    Entry 1-I save time in the kitchen by preparing our dinner throughout the day. Put out ingredients in the morning, chop things up and place in fridge if I have a few minutes to spare, cook meat prior to cooking it for the actual meal, then I’m just warming it up at dinner time.

    Ways that I save time in the kitchen would be that I try to do the preparation right after lunch. That way all I have to do is get everything out of frig. and fix.

  3. Missy says

    My favorite way to save time in the kitchen is cutting
    Up veggies when I get home from grocery store so
    We can grab and go!

  4. Jen H says

    Favorite way to save $ in the kitchen is something that I just tried for the first time and fell in love – CANNING! Who knew?!?! I also love to try and make a menu plan where I can use leftovers for the next night’s dinner :) Thanks for the opportunity and Congratulations on the baby and book!

  5. SamanthaR says

    When I buy a watermelon or cantaloupe, the first time I cut into them I just spend the extra time to cut the entire melon into cubes and put it in a tupperware. We remember to eat it and I don’t have to get out a knife the next time we want a tasty treat!

  6. Josh says

    I cut onions and bellppers and freeze them. This is furrowed than buying them frozen and saves time latter.

  7. Lauren says

    I try and save money by watching sales and stocking up when things are cheap! Not quite organized enough to have a price book, but I am getting better at paying attention to prices.

  8. angie mccort says

    I make a meal twice a big….half for tonight and half for a night when I am busy all day and can heat somehting up from the freezer that I made…

  9. Rachel G says

    my new favorite time/money saver is to make my own brown sugar with molasses and regular granulated sugar. It is so nice not to have to run to the store for brown sugar to make cookies etc.

    My favorite way to save money is to buy in bulk! Especially buying a whole hog or a 1/4 cow. Our new freezer was well worth the money.
