I ordered only fresh food this week. Got some chicken thighs. I haven't cooked any in a long time so will hunt for a recipe.
I like drumsticks and chicken breast and find my cooking skills coming back. With the heat I try to do hot cooking mid day.
But I am eating better.. Tuna sandwiches on whole wheat. Avocado Toast when I have them.. mostly small so use one for three small of light toast or I use a multigrain burger bun.
I have had an icicle off and on on the worst days. It seems you are getting much higher temps then here.
Oh Charlie has to go out more often but for short times. That works well for me also.
I have to buy some decent pasta so am switching to Walmart and buying in quantity. Amazon has junk pasta. The box says one thing but the past inside is yuck!
Today I receive 4 cans of pringles chips. Two 15 lb bags of Pedigree's Healthy weight dry food for Charlie. I always try and keep two bags in the house.This time I ordered two though I have one.
Last month I was out of too much pet food. That happens every 3 or 4 months.
As for me.. I didn't order from Schwans.. No frozen food.
And forgot to order avocados and a couple other items. Dang no A Toast. And salads were miserly.
But I am trying to eat more meet and protein.. I ran out of cheese completely. The next order will have cheese from both companies.
I also ordered two four packs of Campbell's tomato soup from Walmart in addition to the dog food and pringles.
I have enjoyed the ny cheese cake. Small slices twice a week. Plus veggies and bread and what meat I have.
I made coleslaw and forgot to use my blender. ROFLOL! I can never cut it thin enough. So when I made it I happened to glance to the blender and said, "DAMN IT!"
Last week was a real bad mental week. My neck really hurt. The closer I get to the appt with Dr W... I really hope he finds nothing.
I also had a pepperoni & sausage pizza but got thick crust instead of thin. I ordered thin. Oh well. Salads have been good. I am out of ranch and blue cheese, so am stuck with vinegar & oil Italian with parm. Not bad.
The mornings are the only time it is ok to spend time outside and especially to walk to the mail box. Afternoons are in to hot or MUGGY!!!! in capital letters. Though the humidity drys up around 5 or 6pm and sitting on the back porch with Charlie is really nice.
Unfortunately the humidity increases overnight. I try to keep the house at close to 80. But drop it to 77 overnight or I wake up.
Well I can't remember what al I cooked etc last week. LOL
So will continue above with this weeks food.
The Tacos in a bag sound interesting. Opps re the meat/chicken. That's too bad they didn't have enough.
I would love to do veggies like you but my freezer is full most of the time with various foods from the 2 companies. I freeze more leftovers then prepped foods.
Candy I haven't had any, instead am eating the cheesecake and popsicles - cherry, grape, orange, from a month ago that I bought. I just don't have the time you do.
I do buy very veggie brownies with dates or plain ones. Four to a box but small. I will take them to the Drs for snack as I have to fast from the night before till 3pm the next day. OUCH!!
Money has been tight now that I am budgeting so far in advance for year end taxes, county bills, trash pickup, Charlies meds, and so on and so on. Sigh!
My cupboards are bare... even my back up cupboard. I do have lots of vinegar, oils, and other bulk items like every type of light bulb you can imagine. LOL Tons of sugar for the hummers. Ah well.
I just got the dog food etc from Walmart. Oh the packaging is so much better then Amazon or even Chewy.
I love the two lamps I bought - slightly oriental in that they are 4 ft tall with the shade 3 feet. The shades are like rice paper. Very nice. Mine is in my water heater room/closet I needed some light to see my clothes, my file cabinets, and light bulbs and other supplies. LOL It is the only closet I have in my bedroom.. THank goodness the kids found me two Armoires - I know they were $100 each but boy oh boy were they worth the price. They each have a long drawer on the bottom along with two small drawers.
Plus the lattice they are all cedar wood and I hang stuff on the outside such as sweaters, and such during cole weather, But also light jackets and shirt during the summer. I won't walk to the mail box in my "summer tops."
Ok off to the post above. See ya there.
