It's a shame you can't get to the store... but they get to have friends over, etc.
What about lemonade? can you buy some jugs to have on hand instead of using your bulk lemons? Right now I am trying to think what to feed the kids when they come. Burgers I have plenty & buns. No soda as Amazon delayed my order over three weeks - still not arriving timm the 27th? They are shipped by, etc Amazon. I don't get the delay. So all I have on hand is Apple Juice and h2o LOL.
I did buy some cinnamon buns that can be dessert and a few small chocolate fudge heat up brownies. They are small and not what I expected. Oh well!
With the heat have you been able to plant any veggies in pots, or herbs maybe? I do hope you have well water for potted plants and the critters.
I have 11 jugs now with the one that broke. I can go out and fill the base with lots of top soil that was run off the yard.. plus all the dead leaves I just mow but never rake up. I will try and do that in the next few days. But I want the kids to pick up a basil plant for my back porch. I will toss in some roma tomato seeds in the jug. And see what happens. The front porch is perfect for tomatoes but the back is better for the Basil.
I realized I have a weed wacker and can trim the front yard. I have three reallllly long extension cords. So can trim to make things look nicer. EXCEPT!!!! rain is due today and tomorrow, etc. Unbelievable forecasting. SHEESH!
The other day I marinated a pork chop but put too much worcestershire sauce in the mix. It bit to bold but not bad enough to not eat. I fixed a sweet potato and a veg. Last night I pan fried a large chicken breast I cut in half. Olive oil and garlic salt in the oil too lazy to use real. Tossed in chicken and topped with Rosemary and Thyme & S&P. Had with a sweet potato veg butter and halves of corn on cob.
I am eating better and earlier.. except I should have had breakfast already as it's 9am... but did chores, fed everyone, opened house, made bed did a load of laundry - which will now dry inside. LOL Gotta love the ceiling fans.
Charlie had his no ball outing. Breakfast kong, apple and his bones. Chance had his seeds & fruit as well. Lord this place is so noisy if I even 10 minutes late with feeding or letting Charlie out.
I upped my order from Imperfect foods this morning. Avocados 6, 1 lb carrots, 1 # apples, 1# roma tomatoes, 1 bag yellow fingerlings (out of russets), 2Lbs sweet potatoes, total is $25.09 if I get everything,
No frozen food this week - but have plenty of fish, and chops and chicken drumsticks, breast, and other stuff. Lots of frozen veggies but need broth. So I need to order from Amazon I have only 2 boxes chicken, need beef & veggie broth.
Lordy this month is tight. Dang it. LOL
I will be starting next months budget next week. I also need to make an appointment to see Optometrist - my eyes are weird. Mostly because non of my glasses are current. The last ones the Dr kept setting down on my nose. I kept pushing it back so she had them made at the lower position which I didn't know till I picked them up and I didn't have time to get them changed. Plus they cut off my breathing. ARRRGH!!
So I get a free Diabetes eye exam and a free annual exam. SO hopefully early August.. and Appt for Neurosurgeon for my MS mid August. I just what this stuff over. And my yard mowed!
I also need to make some BB muffins, Some french toast with smaller bread and using milk. LOLOL So will need to add some eggs to my list. BRB! Ok that brought me to $30.08... lol
Well I have to fix my Avocado Toast and hang my clothes outside before it rains - the stuff in the gulf of Mexico is coming straight towards here and SA. Temps are in upr 70's but with a bit of a breeze and sun shines right on my clothesline... and temps will be 89 later.
well gotta go hang clothes then eat... Oh I will send you an email gota funny thing that happened. LOL
Well I hope you get to shop sooner then you think. Katie and I are praying for you all the time.
Take care, be safe... and may the heat leave ASAP!
