Plans for the Day.

No shopping today. Except for picking up Big Girl from school- I am not even leaving the house.

I've got a lot of little jobs to keep me busy. I've made my to-do list.

I'm making veggie meatloaf, mashed potatoes, and green beans for dinner. am out of onions but instead of going to Aldi I'll just soak some dried onion in veggie broth with the tvp burger stretcher.
While the oven is heating for the meatloaf, I'll mix up some Weight Watcher's Pumpkin muffins for tomorrows snacks and breakfast. We have an abundance of cake mix and clearance pumpkin cans.

The sweet tea I made yesterday was enjoyed by Hubby (and tolerated by me) so I'll be doing that again. And I finished off two boxes of tea from my pantry too. Yay!

We are finally out of tvp so I've added that to my grocery list. That might have to wait until next week though. Of all of the things in my pantry I think tvp and soy flour are the most handy and versatile. Those are definitely staples in my house.

I'm off to work on my to-do list. Today we're working on potty training and playing with our Christmas train table.

I have to make those pumkin muffins. Thanks for sharing. I actually have the spice cake mix and a can of pumpkin. I can't wait to try it. I am trying to lose weight on a budget which at times can be very difficult. This sounds like a great inexpensive recipe. Thanks again and check out my blog - PUDGET- Losing Weight On A Budget at

There's an even easier WW recipe to make chocolate pumpkin muffins.
You just mix a can of pumpkin with a box of cake mix. No water. And you can barely taste the pumpkin. These muffins get moldy with 2 days so I'd freeze them if you aren't going to eat them all up quickly.

Thanks so much for the chocolate pumpkin muffin recipe. My last can of pumpkin is definitely going to be used on these. What a great idea. Thanks again!
