And for the fact that this poor blog has not had any loving care for awhile. I thought that I would add all of the pictures that I was accumulating for tiny inspirations for Chelles NEW kitchen (when they can get to it)!

So recently during my visit to Seattle in May there was some talk, some excitement and some hoping.
That maybe, just maybe we could have a little get together and meet lots of you girls. Lord knows most of us have been connected for several years now, we are a part of each others day to day. So what do you say? Spring 2010.
That we could chat, and craft, and share our talents with one another, and be real life friends too.... Wouldn't that be a dreamy little getaway.
we have ideas, big ideas, and plans, and we want to make this happen...
we have some neat ideas to keep the cost low, the creativity high
and we have a handful of ladies who think maybe just maybe we can and will pull this off..
What we want to know, what we really want to know... is... would you want to join us?
If so, leave us a little comment here and we will invite you to a new blog to help plan and plot this fun filled weekend! Wouldn't it be divine?

I would also like to remind you, that you can have "Big" meals on this budget but unfortunately this is a lighter one. If I had a larger family I would probably need two pies, and could probably still be very close to budget. We have loved this meal since our early married days, and its still a very favorite of Nicks.
Easy Peasy Pot Pie
I pkg onion soup mix (.25) I buy a box for a dollar.
1/2 pkg mixed frozen vegetables (.75)
1 frozen pie crust (.75)
Anytype of leftover meat from night before 1-2 cups chopped($1.00)
we frequently do chicken, pork, or even steak
2 cups milk (.50)
total for one pie $3.25, a double crust pie $4.00
Preheat oven to 400 degrees
Heat up milk and soup mix in a small saucepan for several minutes until mixed well and a little bubbly.
If your doing double crust lay down first one, place veggies, and meat mixed in pie plate. I made this one a double crust, because my crust was crumbling.
If you have more time you could much cheaper make your own crust, and make two pies still in budget!
Then pour the milk/soup mixture over it.
Place crust on top, and seal, creating a slit to breathe on top
Bake for 20 minutes.
This is perfect for quick dinners before bible study, sport nights, etc. I also plan this into my week to really stretch my dinner budget I normally snag the extra dollar for a night with company over etc.

How many of you are up to the challenge too?
If so, I think it would be great if we could make every Friday here "FOUR FIFTY FRIDAY" and could share some of our favorite dinner ideas that cost $4.50 or less. You don't have to share every Friday, but hopefully enough people will want to participate that we can get a least one recipe a week (especially from you, Miss Leslie!).
Are you in?
a little eye candy?
There is this amazing little spot that the fabulous Kelly Mccaleb is raving about this morning on her blog. And I have to say after scrolling through hers, I was compeletly smitten and went right away and set up my very own Tumblr account...so excited about this pretty way to store sweet picture finds and quotes. Since you all know what a quote junkie I am. Take a look yourself and if you decide to start your own, please do share with the rest of us...
