I'm so cold today -finally broke down and turned on my heat -which my family is thankful for. It is 32 with 40 -45 miles an hour wind . Hope the wind stops blowing .I t will help with the coldness. At least we did not get the snow that out west was going to get + the wind not a good combo. The good thing is it is friday - Pay day so I can pay some bills -I'm trying monthly groc. shopping. Only going to buy milk -I have to buy 6-7 gallons every week because of the daycare - It's a state requirement they have milk twice a day - so I try and limit them to two glasses at each meal. Its really hard to shop for my family of 5 and then I feed 11 others a day - not so great on the food bill - Good thing our state has a food program - if you are a liceased daycare . I get a small amount of money for each child in my care . But I cook mainly from scatch - put some kids in shock - they adjust - snacks I try and hit the dollar store or have homemade items -juice is a big money item - any idea's ?? I try and serve water twice a week -But I have to have two componates -meat ,bread ,fruit or veg. well better go P.S everyone stay warm Bobbi -NE

    With the juice most kids get more than they need. I have in the past when I buy a container of juice taken it and split it in half then fill it up with water. Still has the fruit taste but less calories etc., plus lasts twice as long. Not sure if you can do that with it being a daycare but might check into it. Sometimes the concentrate is cheaper to buy.

    I've always you the concentrate juice. It is cheaper to buy and seems to go alot farer too.

    Try and stay warm --hope the weather gets better for you. It's 62 here in Ohio today, rain now..The temp. is slowly dropping. The weekend will bring back Nov. weather they have said. So old man winter will soon be here also...
