Michael’s – Walmart Haul – Dollar Tree

I kind of went a little crazy here, but it is ok.  I got everything I needed to last me for a little while (yeah right).  Michael’s was having a sale and I had coupons so I didn’t spend that much which is how I like it.

As you can see I got stickers books about 5 of them, some washi tap, my inserts I needed for the Recollections planner for next year and more stickers.

This is so far one of my biggest hauls yet.  Let see if I can do better next time.  (just kidding)

You can also check out my YouTube video on this.   You can find me by Ruthy’s Hang out.

This recipe is a family favorite.  I have been making this for years now and it never gets old.  There are ways that I will make this so that is listed below.  Hope you enjoy.


1 to 2 pounds of steak (cut into strips)      IMG_1609

3 medium to large green peppers

2 cans tomato sauce

1/2 cup water

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

Salt and pepper to taste


Prep work

Cut onion into strips

Cook and cut steak into strips



Stove top

Cook steak until no longer pink. Remove from pan and let cool. Cut steak into strips and then add back to pan along with green peppers, onions, tomato sauce, water and seasonings.

Put over rice or noodles

Crock Pot

Put all ingredients into crock pot except for green peppers and onions. Let this cook for about 3 hours on low. Then add in the onions and green peppers and cook for another 2 hours until meat and vegetables are tender.

Baked Ravioli

Here is something quick and easy to make during the week.  Prep time is less than 15 minutes and cooking time is about 30 so 45 minutes and dinner is done.  You can also make extra to freeze and have a meal for the future.


1 or 2 packages of fresh or frozen ravioli  img_1673.jpg

2 or 3 cups of mozzarella cheese

1 24 oz can of Hunts pasta sauce

1 tsp Italian seasoning

¼ parmesan cheese (for top)


Pre-heat oven 350 degrees

Open can of pasta sauce and pour some on the bottom of a baking dish. Then add a layer of the ravioli on top of the sauce. Now evenly sprinkle the mozzarella cheese on top of the ravioli and just repeat the steps until ravioli is gone.

Bake in oven for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees until hot and bubbly

Let cool for about 10 minutes and serve with garlic bread

Meat Loaf

Here is a good Sunday dinner recipe.  You can also turn this into a freezer meal.  Just make the meat loaf but don’t cook it and put it in a freeze save container and you will have this for one of those busy night you don’t have time to cook.



2 ½ lbs. of ground beef

1 medium onion chopped

1 ½ cups of bread crumbs

1 tsp A1 sauce

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1 can of mushrooms

1 tsp garlic powder

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp parsley

1 can cream of mushroom

1 pk of onion soup mix

Salt and pepper to taste



Pre-heat oven 350 degrees

Put the ground beef in a large bowl and then add in the ingredients one at a time until the meat and ingredients are well blended.

Once this is done, take the meat out of the bowl and place into a baking dish and form into a loaf the best you can.


Cover the pan with tin foil and bake in oven covered for about 30 minutes. After 30 minutes remove the tin foil and let cook without cover for additional 15 to 20 more minutes depending on the size of the loaf.


Remove from oven and let rest for about 10 minutes and then serve with mashed potatoes and a vegetable.
