Brenda at Coffee Tea Books and Me (one of my favorite blogs) has had an on going series about stocking your pantry and I thought the following post was really good because it also touched on the importance of presentation. You can make mac and cheese for lunch a special event just by how you set your table, no one will care that it's "just" mac and cheese and it doesn't have to cost much!
"Today I want to chat about how our pantry truly can be the start of "gourmet" cooking and fine dining... add in a few great cookbooks and a collection of inherited or thrifted china (and candles... must have candles)... and viola', a meal as good as anything in the expensive restaurants."

If you have been with me for a while, then you know that I love my Little House on the Prairie books! You also know that I re-read them all each winter (it's something I look forward to and makes winter special for me). There are lots of things I love about these stories, but mostly I admire how people work together and help each other out. Also, how hard they work, yet they still make time for fun!
I recently found this really useful site SavingAdvice.com and came upon a post about things we can learn from the Little House TV Shows!
"I grew up watching Little House on the Prairie in the 70’s. Each episode had a moral to it, but it wasn’t until I staged a marathon viewing session courtesy of Netflix that I realized how many of those episodes dealt with the subject of money in some form. Maybe some of my money habits did come from TV, after all."
