  • In completely unrelated news, Detroit Mommies has an awesome recipe for a Pumpkin Shake.
  • And Sarah’s Deals just launched an iPhone and Droid app, which is just plain cool.

  • I love everything about this post from Keeley McGuire – she coordinates her daughter’s lunch with the current theme at school!
  • And this one from Life With Katie, as she wraps up her camping series and takes us over the river and through the woods to her Grandmother’s house.  I love the family story woven in and the backdrop of Michigan!
  • Kelly The Kitchen Kop is headed to the Wise Traditions convention in Dallas, and she has a sponsor.  Go girl!

What Michigan Bloggers are Talking About This Week, from your very own Mom TV Michigan Mom.

Those of us in Grand Rapids like a good deal.  We like garage sales, coupons, and are very averse to paying too much.  Lucky for us, there are frugal bloggers all over the state that bring us coupon codes, grocery store match ups {matching coupons with current sales}, and all things bargain related.

  • Her blog is about many things, including faith and homeschooling, but Glimpse of Sonshine also offers up Meijer deals weekly.
  • Coupons Equal Cash has lots of grocery store deals and coupon match ups.
  • Five Dollar Shake has all kinds of great deals, and also has quite a few giveaways on her blog.
  • Bargain Shopper Mom has lots of different bargains; especially higher end stuff.
  • West Michigan Mommy is part of a national network and brings those of us on this side of the state some great deals.
  • Sarah’s Deals is just bursting at the seams with grocery store match ups, deals, freebies, and more.
  • MI Savings Momma brings all kinds of freebies and great deals.
  • Saving Dollars and Sense has information about homeschooling, but also tons of deals, bargains and freebies.

  • There were a lot of 9/11 posts out there, but this one from the Adventures of Super Spice not only stood out, it made me do a fist pump.
  • Eat Local West Michigan stands up to for the often overlooked pear.  I love learning new things, and I learned that pears make wine, thereby significantly elevating their status in my mind.
  • Natural Living Moms wrote about eating local produce on a budget.  Local + frugal = I love it.
  • And while there isn’t a particular post, I do want you to check out Bargain Shopper Mom if you haven’t already.  It’s a frugal blog, and there is tons of good information!

I am clearly looking for some simplified back to school recipes, because I bookmarked three this week!

  • Sarah’s Deals has a great recipe for home-made bread to try when it cools down.
  • The Domestic Executive Online has a great recipe for Chicken Pasta Salad that I will definitely be making in the very near future.
  • Being Cheap Is Easy has a great recipe for Easy Enchiladas.

Some fall goodness here, enjoying the bounty and getting back into the swing of a routine.

And from the ‘state of the blog’ department, we have two different posts to check out.

  • Serendipity Mommy is two years old.  And she is rocking it.  Take a look at what she has accomplished!
  • Katie at Sluiter Nation tells is why she will never be a ‘big’ blogger.  She’s totally wrong, in my opinion.  I think she is a big deal waiting to happen.

And finally, Wendy at the Local Cook recently traveled to Uganda, and wrote a really interesting series about her trip.  This is the last post, so read it and then you’ll want to read all the others to get caught up.

  • This post from A Quiet Simple Life, “Keep Calm And Carry On” completely resonated with me.  As our country becomes a more confusing and unsettling entity, it drives me to make my home a more calm and organized one.
  • On The Road Again brings us a wonderful recap of a perfect Michigan vacation in the Traverse City area in “Roughing It“.
  • I read this post from Blossom Bunkhouse literally one day after I recycled a band aid box and was very sad for the missed opportunity to make a DIY Kids First Aid Bike Kit like hers.

Michigan Mom Monday – What Bloggers In Michigan Are Talking About This Week

michigan1 Michigan Mom Monday   What Bloggers In Michigan Are Talking About This Week

This Michigan Mom Monday post is soon becoming my favorite!  I get to sit down and read tons of great posts and see all of the awesome blogging that is going on in Michigan.  Every couple of days a new Michigan blogger pops up too.  I LOVE IT!

This week, one thing Michigan bloggers are talking about, well, blogging.

  • Mommy is In Timeout tells us why Blogging Ain’t Easy.  And by tells, I mean raps. Via vlog.  I witnessed the Karaoke “Ice Ice Baby” performance at Gleek Retreat it was fabulous.  And on a boat, which for some reason made it 10,000 times funnier.

There were lots of interesting thoughts and comments about wants vs. needs on this post by Kitchen Stewardship Does a Child Really Cost A Quarter Million Dollars?

And finally this week, there was a very nice, sneak-some-healthy into a treat recipe from Mom Colored Glasses for Black Bean Brownies.
