Our Weekend Getaway!
Hi to everyone! I am so excited this weekend my husband and I will be going to our church's annual couples retreat! This is something that I look forward to every year!
I wanted to make sure that my children will have a bit of fun also while we are away so we are planning some fun and frugal ways of doing this.
Crystal mentioned over on Money Saving Mom that she was going to be baking and freezing ahead of time.
I decided this week to do a bit of cooking and freezing ahead of time also.
Yesterday I made three pizza's. I cooked the dough partially, let it cool and than added the toppings. I froze them so all our children have to do Friday night is just pop them in the oven and enjoy! No major mess. Here is the recipe we like to use.
We are also going to splurge and buy some Costco muffins for Saturday morning breakfast another treat. Off to the Red Box to rent a few movies for the weekend and a few snacks from Aldi's and they should be able to have a fun and frugal weekend!
We have even decided to grab a couple of those yummy muffins for our selves for our Saturday breakfast so we can just relax in our room a little longer and not feel rushed. Not to mention that it will also be much cheaper than running out for breakfast at a restaurant.
I will try to post some pictures of our weekend when we get back! Have a great and blessed weekend! God Bless, Kathy
