Once a Month Cooking

OK, so I just have to add this in. I have been researching method of cooking that seems really cool. You cook most of your meals in one week or weekend and then freeze them in the freezer. I know it sounds nasty and like a lot of work but it isn't. Thanks to my friends on Mormonchic.com I was able to research this method and try it out for myself. Mike and I were both a little scared but we did a trail run and I think we are going to keep it up. We have actually tasted the food after we reheated it and it was great. I could not believe my luck because I thought that it was going to be a waste of money (we spent 125.00 for around 20 meals) but it turns out that it has saved us money. Also the Time that I have been saved is amazing. We now pull out a meal in the morning and reheat it in the evening and we have actual home cooked meals. I love it! Now my kids have home made meals every night. They do miss pizza and McDonald's now. Anyways if you want to try this out let me know and I will give you some links.

For those of you not on yahoo 360

I wanted to create a blog that my friends and family that are not on yahoo 360 can see so that they keep updated in the lives of Mike, Des and Beau. Let me know if you have any questions or comments.

We are doing great right now. We still like being a foster family and we currently have two kids in our family. Beau loves having someone to play with and mike and I feel like we are finally doing what we were called to do. These two make our fifth and sixth foster children and they are good kids. Mike is getting ready to graduate and I am excited that he is about to graduate. Beau is in gymnastics and soccer right now and is looking forward to baseball in the spring.

I will keep you posted.
