Blogging with the Americans!

   Most of the blogs I visit are written by American ladies, and a few Canadians, too.

  On ‘Menu Plan Mondays’,  I often wonder what some of the dishes actually are, so right now I’m surfing the net and doing a little research. I looked on my msn webpage which I really enjoy browsing, and found this  I must get one of those crockpots! 

   Then I was side-tracked (nothing new) onto another site which explained how to deal with a two-year old who bites his sisters, which is happening in my house right now. It started last week, and Spud thought it was a good idea at first. Check this out…. BITE

  So, back to the foodie bit. There are a few more things I struggle with. Meatloaf is popular on the menu’s, as is sandwiches. Now, if my Husband came home from a 10/12 hour shift, to be presented with sandwiches, he’d head right out the door and down to the ‘Chipper’ for a Lunchbox!

  Leftovers night …BRILLIANT! I throw the lot together and come up with ……erm…..something! No, seriously, since adding leftovers to the menu, I waste nothing. I’ve saved between 20-40 euro per week on groceries. Honestly! I don’t buy what we would all like, I buy what we’ll need for the week.

 I think I should plan next weeks Meal Planner Monday on meals I’ve seen on these said blogs!

    Which brings up a thing or two about your blog…what kind of beans do you serve with eggs & bacon? Beans aren’t something we routinely serve with eggs & bacon…we’d go with something like grits or biscuits. I think I will adopt the Meal Planner Monday to help jump start my planning for the week. If you have any questions about mine, don’t be afraid to ask!

    One more thing…any idea how euros compare to the American dollar? I have no idea if 20-40 euro is a lot or not! Thanks.

    20 euro is 26 dollars…
    Tell me, what are grits or biscuits? 😆

    Grits are corn ground up very small. They are relatively flavorless, but we like to add cheese or butter for flavor…they are like rice only smaller. Biscuits are a bread, like rolls only made without yeast. We put ham or bacon or eggs or butter on them. Sometimes, more than one of those at a time. Does that help?

    Also…we eat baked beans with our hamburgers or barbecue sandwiches. Not usually with breakfast. It’s interesting to learn about other diets/menus!

    Thanks for the info. I’m going to be trying out a few of the menus I’ve seen on my next few Meal Planners!
