Help, I need something I can eat all week!

Posted by on

Dear Vindale,

I’m on a budget and one way to save is to make food at home. I have a crock pot but I am NOT a naturally gifted cook (I once boiled water and came back and the pot was empty … I literally can’t boil water). I made turkey chili that is really good but after two months of nothing but that I need some new recipes. I need them to be fairly healthy, affordable, and able to keep well for eating throughout the week. And if I can make them all in one pot that’s great too. Ideas?

Thanks,

Wolfgang Stuck

January 2015 newsletter poll and caption challenge winners

Posted by on

The winners
Below, the 10 winners of our January 2015 newsletter poll below. If you see your name, claim your $2. (See how at the bottom of the list.)

  1. Brenda – my baby boy and his wife returned from 2 years in africa as missionaries and we are getting a new grandbaby best news ever
  2. celery – I have 2 memories imprinted in my mind and heart from 2014. First my husband became very ill and was close to death in January. He was in hospital since Dec 2013. A few weeks into January, he started to get better physically but was still in hospital in the dementia unit. I would phone and/or visit daily and each time I left for home he cried and begged me to take him home or to stay. It broke my heart. Finally, on a Thursday, his doctor and I decided it was time for a family meeting to decide which community support home he would go to because the hospital couldn’t keep him, his dementia was not getting better and I would not be able to cope with him at home. The following Sunday when I talked to my husband on the phone, I thought,”he sounds different, like he is more “with-it”.” I was blessed to slowly get my husband back over the course of the next week or two as I watched a miracle happen right before my eyes! The doctors had no explanation but by the middle of February my husband was well enough to come home!
    The second memory is my daughters wedding in February. It was in Jamaica and it was just after I took my husband home. He was not able to come to the wedding but we had friends who checked on him while I was gone. The wedding was beautiful and I was able to completely enjoy and cherish every moment of it- while relaxing in a tropical country at the same time. 2014 was a good year.
  3. Quasheeda Mcmillian – The first thing comes to mine is that special someone i met and this year we are getting married. Thank you lord for your Blessing.
  4. Mckenna burrows - I guess it would be a personal event if I had to pick. On my birthday I wanted to reward my self and give my self a very special gift of my own. On 2014 September 21, my birthday; I finally decided after tossing and turning in my bed for years that I would come out of the closet to my family! Since then my family ties has became stronger than ever, as I was able to be myself around my family. Not only that, but my health has improved since, and now I have a boyfriend because of my support of my loved ones actually raised my self esteem, and be in a perfectly healthy stable relationship. This by far was the best gift of not just 2014 but from my whole life, which is acceptance of your self and letting the world know your here and have perpous. Cheers to everone and happy fair well to 2014!
  5. Marlayna Caffrey Hogeweide - 2014 has been full of changes, great life altering changes. Not only did we find out that we are the “forever home” for our foster daughters, but we have been able to move ahead legally with my step son. In addition my husband graduated college (has his GED and was in the Active Army for years) and I decided to volunteer as a co-leader with Girl Scouts. There have been some sad times too, but my hubby and I have been able to have good team work and have been working really hard to make our marriage strong.
  6. Brian Yelvington – been waiting 10yrs. but finally got a much needed joint surgery done in 2014
  7. tracy – My personal event is my eyes disease called retinitis pigmentosa. Lost 85% of my peripheral vision and night blindness. Heard they have been working on stem cells to restore retina, which it has been improved so I’m waiting for it to come to United States. Very happy about this.
  8. lyn32060l – Have scleroderma and going to die from this rare illness but I treat each day like it is my last. Also had 5 strokes and lost the use of my right hand, though I keep my hopes up that someday they may find a cure, maybe not for me but for others young or old.
  9. Pete Brooks – first thing that comes to mind is my son Logan joining the Navy for the next 8 years!! so proud and so scared for him but super glad hes gonna travel and see the world before he settles down and starts a family!!! GO LOGAN!!!!!!\
  10. Steffyboo32786 – This could be considered a personal event and a place. The first thing that comes to my mind when I think of 2014 is my families move to our new home. Me and my 2 kids (both boys 8 &4yrs old), and their daddy used to live in a small shack type of house. The bedrooms were 8 by 8, they were basically cells. I, of course, shared a room with their daddy, and our kids had to share a room. Every room was connected. For example the living room and kitchen were one room and then the 2 bedrooms and a bathroom. We were all constantly waking all over each other, it could be stressful. We had been wanting to move but times were really hard abd we just didn’t have the money do we continued to save our money every chance we got rough was hard and it took quite a while. Anyways after tons of saving we finally had enough saved up in September. We started our search for a place we could afford to rent and a place that we could finally be able to call home. I believe someone was looking out for us because we found a beautiful double wide trailer that sat alone atop a hill on over 5 acres of land. It had 3 bedrooms, 2 living rooms, 2 bathrooms, a huge dining room and kitchen, and a laundry room. It was just a DREAM COME TRUE. My children could finally have their own rooms, and they could finally have a yard to play in (we lived beside a road and train tracks at old place). I actually cried when the owners told us that they would love to have us as their tenants. I cried because I had never thought we could get do lucky abd that something so amazing could happen for us like this. I cured because I could finally say, “this is a home where we can raise our kids and we can truly be happy”. I know it may not mean that much to some people but I have grown up with the barest of things. My family couldn’t afford to do anything and we barely had the bills paid but, of course my parents tried their hardest and that’s all that matters (I love them dearly for everything they did for us). Like all parents, I wanted MORE for my children, but sometimes it is hard so the fact that we could give them a REAL home was a huge BLESSING and a dream come true!! I love that I can go out in my very own yard and watch my kids running around, chasing each other while laughing and giggling. I love seeing that light in their eyes and knowing that they are happier at this new home than they have ever been. Being able to move into this home was one of the best things that had ever happened to us and I feel truly blessed. So yes, when I think of 2014, this is what comes to mind for me. Thank u all and I wish u all the very best and happy 2015!!
