Me, take it or leave it :O)

Who am I? I have been a single parent for 19 years. Currently Living in Peoria, AZ just a stone throw from Phoenix.

I am addicted to food be it recipes collecting or even cooking food. I don’t want that fluffy crap they call dinner on a plates that costs $14.99 a plate and all you get is a small sick little piece of chicken, a spoonful of white rice , 5 small pieces of broccoli and call that a meal. I may not be 110 pounds but if I am paying $14.99 a plate I want a meal. So we as a family don’t go out much for nice dinners. We play it simple and do a lot of cooking at home cheaper and it yield a better meal w/ dessert for $14.99 a plate w/ leftovers.

I can whip up shredded chicken enchiladas in a 9 x 13 (I usually do it different I will explain more later about me and budget tricks) plus homemade refried beans and homemade Mexican rice for usually under $20.00 with leftovers for a few days ( I freeze leftovers)

I am very creative and budget well…I use to feed a family of 3 adults for $300 a month (that was food/household products/etc).

I also enjoy reading a lot as well as thrift store shopping and crocheting...

You'll fit right in here. You and I have a lot in common. I love cooking, saving money, reading and crochet.

I've been planning on starting a new thread for those of us who sew, knit, crochet or do crafts, but I've got a miserable cold right now and it's hard to drum up much enthusiasm.

What's your current crochet project?

If you can't see the bright side of life, polish the dull side.

Good morning from North Wales, I cant sew, crochet or knit, the only craft I do are the cheese slices, I think I can cook though.
