About sledge258

I'm a wife, mom, with a full time job. I love to cook, write and photography. These are my pasions in life. With a full time job my passions tend to get put on the back burner, but I am trying to change that. I wanted to start a blog so I can bring out all of my passions in one place.

Sunday Updates

Hope everyone had a good weekend and enjoyed the nice weather.   Yes, tomorrow is back to work for some of us and I am sure we are all so excited to go (hehe).  I finally got the chance to add 2 more of my recipes to my blog under Dinners, Sloppy Joe’s and Chicken Stir Fry, so check them out if you like.  I will be trying to update more recipes as the weeks go on.    Have a good evening :))


It’s Friday

It’s finally Friday I hope everyone has a great day and weekend.  I will be updated my blog this weekend with recipes I tried and some I came up with so maybe you can try yourself so be on the look out for them.   Have a great day!!!

Catching Up

This past week I have just been so busy with house work, work and family stuff.   I did sign up for Costco this past weekend as well.   there was so much there that I seen that would save us money and stock up to save money down the road.  This is going to help with our plan to aggressively pay down our debt.    If all goes well with this plan we should be debt free in 4 years.   This is also going to take restraint from going out and shopping at Michael’s.

Coming up with a Plan

I have been on You Tube for most of the day just trying to get tips to save more money.  I am already doing good with saving money, but I am sure there are more ways to save than what I am already doing.   I am going to find a way to get rid of cable.  This is an expense that could be cut.  I love cable and so does my family, but the price is high for just to see the same programs everyday.  I am looking into some of these new streaming sites now, and maybe that will help reduce some money.  Also going to start doing bulk grocery shopping, and invest in a Food Saver machine.  These will also help me to cut some of our budget.   Once I can get this figured out, I am going to do a deep dive into paying down our bills, so we can take a vacation.

Also while doing this today I was making dinner and it came out great.  I made slow cooker red bean with white rice, and some Cajun pork chops on the side.  These bean are a keeper for sure. IMG_0863 The recipe for the beans I found on Pinterest. The link is below.
