My Babies First 12 Months!


I am so glad I did this.  Every month I took a picture of my baby girl with the Sticky Bellies Onesies Monthly Milestone Stickers.  Today, my baby girl is 1 year old and I put together this collage to share with my friends on Facebook.  I also will be putting together a little scrapbook of each month.

Menu Planning Central!


Stop Feeding Your Family Junk!
If you had a choice between grabbing fat-laden fast food yet again or serving your family a balanced, home-cooked meal, which would you pick?
What if I told you that you can prepare that home-cooked meal and save time and money over the so called "Fast Food" option? Menu Planning allows you to do just that. It ensures that you have the ingredients you need in the house to whip up a delicious and nutritious meal in less time than it takes you to decide which drive-thru or takeout restaurant to visit and then wait in line for your food.
But who has time to sit down to find recipes, make a menu plan and the grocery list to go along with it? The Menu Mom Does!
Hi, my name is Christine Steendahl, and I am known as "The Menu Mom". I sat down and came up with not one, but 4 different types of menus for the entire month. Each of these menus comes complete with recipes and categorized grocerylists that make grocery shopping fast and simple.

  • Family Friendly Menu 
    4 weekly menus that everyone in the family is sure to love.
    Not only do you receive 7 dinner recipes complete with side dishes, but also 2 weekend brunch recipes and 2 dessert recipes. Each menu comes complete with the recipes for each dish and a weekly grocery list.
  • Healthy Menu 
    Whether you're watching your weight, are dealing with a health issue that requires you to eat healthy, or just want to feel better, this healthy menu is just what you've been looking for. You get 4 weeks worth of healthy dinner ideas along with healthy sides. Of course recipes and weekly grocery lists are included.
  • Vegetarian Menu Does your family stick to a vegetarian diet, or you just like to have a few vegetarian dishes in your menu each week? Then this menu mailer is for you with 4 weeks worth of vegetarian recipes and of course a categorized grocery list for each week.
  • Frugal MenuAre you on a tight budget?  Our frugal menus help you feed your family for less, as you keep your grocery bill in check.  Included are 4 weeks worth of frugal menus along with the corresponding grocery lists.
I would like to offer you 4 weekly menus of each of these four options. That's a total of 16 weekly menus complete with recipes and shopping lists.
But that's not all...

Help Vermont Get Back On Their Feet


First, I want to say yes, I live in Vermont, Starksboro Vermont that is.  I am proud to be a Vermonter, we do all we can to help others.  6 years ago, I packed food and clothes in boxes to send to the victims of Hurricane Katrina.  My heart went out to those people in Louisiana and I didn't have much money, but I gave what I could.  Now, my home state has been devastated by Hurricane Irene, and I have nothing to give.  I want to so badly help volunteer or do something, but I have 3 little boys that I need to take care of now.  I did manage to come up with $10 to donate to the Vermont Food Bank (which $10 provides 25 meals).  Something is better than nothing!

I am a lucky one.  My town was not effected by Irene much, some down trees and that's it.  We still had our power through the whole thing.  unfortunately this is not true for places that are not to far from me.  I actually stayed at my parents house that night,  We live in a mobile home, so I was a little nervous about that, so I figured because of the heavy winds I'd be safer at my parents house that is about 8 miles away from mine.

I was wrong.  Everything was okay actually until around noon time on Sunday I went out back of their house and saw this...

Not bad, just a small branch that landed on the back of my mom's clothes line.  The rain just kept coming down, and I was getting a little nervous.  Mainly because my parents live across a river.  This river flooded the year I was born in 1976 (which I don't remember), then it flooded in 1998 which was very scary.  Luckily no damages to any of our neighbor houses but the roads got beat up.  Here is a pic of the bridge from my parents house that was destroyed in 1998...

Fortunetelling this did not happen this time.  The water got pretty high, but no damage on our end.  Thank god.  Here is a video clip from that Sunday evening...

We lost power around 6pm Sunday night.  We went to bed early and everything was least that's what I thought.  The next morning we still had no power, and we knew that the road out of Lincoln was closed so I decided to leave going the alternate route.  It was sunny and nice....then I went home.  I got on to the computer and login on mouth dropped.  Pictures every where of roads gone!

So the next day I went back to Lincoln.  My mom and I walked down the road about 2 miles and saw this...

Of course this is minor compared to some places in Vermont!  To see more pictures check out the Facebook Page:  Pictures of Damaged In Vermont.

Also, if you can give $10 to the Vermont Food Bank that would be great, remember $10 will provide 25 meals!
