Quest for Cornmeal

Today I went to the local grocery store to buy a few things including cornmeal. I searched up and down high and low in the baking aisle. I couldn't find it. With a heavy heart, I resigned myself to buying Betty Crocker's cornbread mix. Then, low and behold I found my cornmeal! It was two aisles down in the pancake batter and pancake syrup aisle! That's a mighty strange place to put it if you ask me. Yellow cornmeal in this brand was my only choice.

Old Fashioned Summer Fun

Since we are trying to save money, we decided that we would not take a vacation away from home this year. The Summer has been filled with good, old fashioned fun. We have enjoyed days playing in the stream and hiking in the woods. Instead of traveling far, we have stayed near home playing in the wading pool, picnicking and visiting the local parks. It has been one of my favorite Summers because we have spent extra time together as a family enjoying the simple pleasures in life.
