  1. How to Horrify Friends While Saving Money on Food

    by , 08-05-2008 at 08:16 PM
    First, it is important that you know that my best friend is a chef. In fact, she is a GREAT chef!

    And today, to her horror, I mad a shocking confession.

    In order to reduce this weeks grocery spending , I had spent 48 hours eating my way through a package of hotdogs without buns, dipped in ketchup and mustard. Actually, I ate 7 of them. And worse, I didn't feel deprived - I actually enjoyed them.

    Kind of like the cookies that I stole from the cookie ...
  2. Day #4 Jambalaya

    Tonight was Jambalaya which was good as always. I used Zatarain's Jambalaya mix and a couple links of Turkey Sausage cut up. I use turkey sausage because the regular sausage is so not good for you. It tastes just the same. I had some leftover edamame in the freezer from a recipe I had tried out. They were not good, rather bland and neither dh nor I liked them.

    Tomorrow I might have some troubles. It may be leftover night. I might have to stay late at work. We will see... ...
  3. Day #3 Sloppy Joes

    Ok, the sloppy joes were great. But, we had them for lunch instead of dinner. So, for dinner I made the Italian Bow Tie Pasta that I should have made on day #1. It was good.

    Update on dh's grandma- she is doing better. They are more positive about her outlook. She was actually recognizing people and calling them by name. She may pull through! I am very glad of that.
  4. Seriously...?!?!

    Ok, that is how I feel! This whole infertility thing is just going to be the death of me! I have been on this road for too long. I know I am young, but it has been 2 1/2 years of active TTC with the help of drugs and procedures and still nothing. I know about, let's see, 4 people who are on their 2nd kid since I've been wanting 1. Seriously...?!?!?! When is it going to be MY TURN!!!!!! I have wasted so much money on this, it is NOT a frugal venture. All in all I've spent close to $5,000 ...
