Oh where oh where have I been?

I've been MIA for almost two months.  It's because we moved and I haven't given this blog any of my time.  Today is the first day that I actually drug out my laptop.  I've been using my ipad mini since before and after the move.

Here is a picture of our new home which was taken in the spring before the flowers and trees were in bloom.  It may look deceiving as this home is over 3300 square feet.  It has a very nice sized finished basement. 

The new house is nowhere near visitor ready.  It's been slow unpacking.  My husband still has about a month of  nothing but night shift which is four nights on and one night off.  My daughter and I have to be quiet during the day so not much unpacking, if any,  goes on then.  I do manage to do the laundry without bothering him.  We have also spent many days at the old house doing work.  We still have a few odds and ends there, but for the most part, we are now done doing work there and we had it cleaned.  On one of hubby's nights off we will probably go there and load up a few more things.  We have had a couple of house viewings on the old house this week and we are in one couple's top three and the other couple said it was too big.  Keep praying for our old home to sell please!

I really love my new home and will love it more once it is all unpacked and organized.  I'm determined to go through every box and weed out again any item(s) that I don't need.

I plan on posting my weekly menus again beginning next week.  I haven't been doing a lot of cooking as most of my kitchen things are still boxed up.  I have most of the basics that I need and just bought a new set of hard anodized pots and pans and I really love them!  Here is the set I bought  I thought the price was right and a good way to introduce myself to hard anodized cookware.  I have a wonderful set of Stainless Steel cookware that will last my lifetime but I also like having nonstick.

See you on Monday with what I'm feeding my family.  Thank you for stopping by.
