I should cook more often

Because of the financial situation this month, I'm trying to make sure I don't overspend and staying on a budget. That means no fast food or restaurants and so I have to actually cook. I don't mind cooking really... I don't care for the mess afterwards and I usually don't have the time to cook, but overall it's not too bad. Tonight I made beef enchiladas and they were quite yummy if I say so myself. Luckily I'll have leftovers for lunch tomorrow since I didn't pick anything up for my lunches this week. This Thursday I have to cater a lunch to my top five students in the Stock in Talk sales. I will be making them Stromboli, Fettuccine Alfredo, Salad and Dessert. It should be quite yummy. I can have my friend Bret and my ex-husband vouch for me in that.

It was another long day at school with not enough time to get everything done. I did make hotel reservations for our trip to Lubbock next weekend. Right now the trip is going to cost over $2000. It's a good thing they did so well with their fundraiser. I have papers to grade and I actually brought them home, but I know I'm not going to touch them. I don't know why I bother. I don't give my kids homework because I don't like it myself.

Well, I guess I better go do the dishes so they don't get as bad as before... especially since I have to do more cooking this week.

sounds like a yummy meal! I love to cook. It's actually relaxing for me and I love knowing that my family looks forward to it.

I like to cook too but I hate to defrost and I don't like the mess either. That's one pricey speech tournament!!

Please email me your chicken enchilada recipe.
