Smile Award & What's going on here!

Thank the Lord we finally got some MUCH needed rain. It also cooled the temp down a bit. I have been so busy yesterday and today! I have been working on completing some pretty large wholesale orders this week so I can ship them tomorrow. Seems I got backed up all the sudden? Not sure how that happened but it seemed I got several orders at the same time. I love this time of the year. I especially love when its busy and it's hard to keep up.

I recently started doing a lot of freezer cooking. I never really used my freezer much before except for frozen meals and frozen chicken breast. I am trying to completely eliminate frozen meals from my diet because of the high sodium content. The last time I went to the doctor my blood pressure was a little high and the doc told me to watch my sodium intake. Hypertension also runs in my family; my mom has had it for years. But any way I have been buying the large rolls of ground beef and making hamburger patties and then freezing them. I also go ahead and fry the hamburger and put one pound in each freezer bag. It makes it so quick and easy when you need to add it to a meal. I also stocked my freezer with home made veggie soup, spaghetti sauce and more apple pie filling. As well as corn and green beans and pie crust. I am hooked! It makes throwing a meal together effortless.

My dad and I finally got started today clearing out the land and getting ready for the foundation on my house. I am sooooooo excited! I will be posting pics this weekend of the blank space and the view :)
