First draft of 2017 goals

December 30th, 2016 at 06:33 am

My 2017 goals are pretty basic, nothing fancy. I'll tweak them as I give them more thought.

I have also signed up for the Frugalwoods Uber Frugal Month challenge, thanks to SA! The kids and I will be attending a conference at the end of the month, so extra funds will always be helpful. More importantly, though, a successful challenge will help solidify better habits. Over time I tend to experience "spending drift", where I get sloppy with my spending and saving habits.

Later today I will head to the grocery store to pick up food for next week. I plan to make a big pot of soup to take to work each day, along with my protein shakes. Boring, but effective and cheap. I am heading to Puerto Rico at the end of the month, gotta whip myself into shape!

There will be so many changes this year, which can be exciting. My oldest dd will be graduating high school, and has to decide where she will go next. She doesn't like to talk about it with me, I think she is scared, it's a big change. My youngest wants to stay in this area, but of course that depends on job offers that I may receive after I pass my board exam. DW has to decide if she will retire from the military, or stay in a bit longer. So lots of decisions for the family! It feels overwhelming at times. But I am grateful to have these opportunities, I know that in much of the world women don't have any of these options to consider.

    What sort of soups do you like? I'm not a big soup person, but since it's so cost effective, I've been trying to find some good ones. We've had pretty good taco and celery soup. I recently got better at my broccoli cheddar soup too. As you can probably tell, we're not so hot on the veggies which makes good soups difficult to come by.

    The cream of chicken soup recipe is a favorite in my house. I use the arrowroot version, but also add in some cauliflower and extra carrots for extra nutrition.

    Thanks for the recipe ideas, everyone! I like soups, but mine never seem to be as flavorful as others. But I'm still trying different recipes in hopes that I'll get a few winners!
