Tuesday Random Time

How did it get to be the end of July?! I'm not so sure I'm ready for August.  It's another busy month for us, but most of that busy is fun stuff--an anniversary, birthday (mine), school shopping, and a mini vacation.  Then school starts August 25.  Looking at it that's a lot to fit into the next three weeks. Never a dull moment around here. 
Now on to the random:
  • Cups.  The cups that two boys can go through in the course of a day at home. Because they can't actually refill said cups.  Must get a new one for every drink. The only relatively good thing is they do tend to get dirty cups in the sink--most of the time.  I'd be far more annoyed if I had to hunt them all down constantly.
  • This was my weekend:
  • Well, maybe not all weekend, but we made a startling amount of laundry--so many towels...
  • Bruiser is feeling better--he wanted to go to school today.  So off he went.  Coughing, but otherwise feeling quite chipper. Now to hope the bug has run it's course and no one else gets it in our house.
  • This one is for Nick:
  • And every morning Most of the house feels this way:
  •  I'm on the hunt for skillet meals.  Anything that does not involve the oven. It's gets hot enough in the house without adding a hot oven heating up the kitchen.  So skillet meals.  Got any suggestions?  Other than Hamburger Helper--trying to cut back on precessed foods and salt.
So that about covers my random for the week.  Be sure to link up your random with Stacy! She who is now Random Queen, or our fearless leader of the random!

I'm glad, now that we're back in WA State, that we have a little more breathing room before the start of school - 5 more weeks of summer here! Woot! :)

You're an August baby? My favorite aunt and my older sister are both August. Great month! ;)

I have a few great skillet meal recipes (no Hamburger Helper, I'm not a fan because my mom made that ALL the time when I was growing up...) - I'll dig up the recipes and email them to you later today (after I get back from grocery shopping). ;) When we were in PA, I'd avoid using the oven as much as possible in the summer, since the kitchen was always hotter than the hinges of hell. :) Skillet meals and crockpot meals saved the day! :)

We have cup issues too. Our issues is that Hubby and the kids seem to pack them off and there is never any in the cabinet. How do you lose a cup? I have no idea!

My husband won't eat hamburger helper anymore. He got burned out on it. I can't think of any skillet meals right now, though, except a picadillo and beef tips. I don't follow a recipe for the beef tips, but I got the picadillo recipe on AllRecipes.

Happy early birthday! I'm a September baby.

School starts Aug. 25 here, too. Ugh!
