Financial Peace University

30th December 2008

Financial Peace University

Most of you don’t know where I live, so this post won’t mean anything to you.

Handsome will be leading a course at our church called Financial Peace University, starting in February. It’s a 13 week course developed by Dave Ramsey, nationally recognised radio personality. He has written a book called Total Money Makeover and a couple of others. His radio programme is pretty good too. Basically it’s a simple program to teach people financial management - getting out of debt, making a budget, saving for retirement, all those kinds of things. I read his book a couple of years ago after my brother and his wife recommended it.

No matter where you are financially we’d love to have you join us. It’s all taught by DVD lessons, you don’t have to be a member of the church. We’ll be meeting on Wednesday nights and there will be childcare. If you’re interested let me know and I’ll get the information to you when it’s available. We will be making a decision about the start date within the next week.

results of a day of cooking

Well. I’m tired. I just took off my shoes and I realised that they had been on my feet all day. ALL. DAY. Since 7am when I got dressed. I’m not a shoe kind of girl. I liked living in New Zealand for that reason because I didn’t have to wear shoes all the time. I’ll never forget when I first started working at the University of Canterbury after being in NZ just six months and I saw university students going to class without any shoes on! A few years later I found myself going to the supermarket without any shoes. I didn’t even notice until I was halfway through my shopping. Oh well, when in Rome…

I’ve got a freezer full of meals for my friend, which I’ll deliver tomorrow, as well as some for my own family. I made at least three of each recipe, so I’m giving her two and saving one for us. She’ll get  a total of ten meals, along with instructions. If I were a really good blogger (which I’ve never claimed) I’d have a picture to show you with all the meals nicely stacked somewhere so you could oooh and aaaah over my stash. But I’m not a good blogger, so I don’t. Besides, the deep freeze is pretty dark and you wouldn’t be able to see them anyway.

So, I highly recommend Fix Freeze Feast, as referenced in my previous post. And I particularly recommend Cheesy Chilada Bake. Handsome had three helpings. It was reeeeeal good.

And Wilm, glad to hear you enjoyed the enchiladas! The chiles aren’t spicy at all and the leftovers are almost better than the first go round!
