I need to make some more breakfast sandwiches/burritos for the next week.
Sunday we will have strip steak, squash casserole, and steamed potatoes.
Monday we will have sandwiches at home either for lunch or dinner according to what time we leave for Dr's appt. While we are out of time we will eat at Red Lobster on a g/c they sent me for a bad experience a couple of months ago.
Then we are back to DH not eating at night so I will just have leftovers or sandwiches Tues - Fri.

My shopping on Thursday was a little more expensive because of buying toothbrushes and some canned dog food. We are making an out of town trip to dr Monday and will go to Target with coupons for more pet food and some paper products.

I have used 2 poached chicken breasts, a boxed pasta salad, a pound of ground beef (a little of that went into the freezer browned), a can of diced tomatoes, a can of Rotel, a cup of shredded cheddar, 1/2 small box of Velveeta, a can of corn, a can of pinto beans, a can of cr of chick soup and cr of mushroom soup a can of chunk chicken. DH finished off the popcorn and a bag of chips. We also used 1/4 pack of bacon, 4 eggs, 3 flour tortillas, and two hamburger buns. Well actually 3 hambeurger buns because LB managed to knock the package out of my hands and claimed one. LOL
Unfortunately I have had to throw out a cucumber, tomato and 4 potatoes that were mushy.

Do y'all think the prices have been driven up because of all of the computer-driven fields?
Yield: Serves 4-6
Your guests will hesitate to break into this elegant-looking creation, but once they start there'll be no stopping them. Spreads very easily.
1/2 pound blue cheese
1/2 cup apple juice
4 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup toasted chopped almonds
Crumble the cheese in a small bowl and cover with apple juice; refrigerate overnight. Drain off the juice and mix the cheese with butter until smooth.
Shape into a ball and sprinkle all over with almonds. Chill. Remove from the refrigerator one hour before serving, and let stand at room temperature.
Serve as a spread for Melba toast or small pieces of crusty French bread. less

Did you know that if you mix a small amount of baking soda with super glue, it makes for an excellent bond with balsa as well as porcelain? It's so.
Mix it with white glue and use it to fill in nail holes and small cracks in walls. You can sand and paint it when it's dry. Be aware that it s...

I recently read the book All the Money in the World by Laura Vanderkam. While she espoused a lot of the same sorts of ideas that I am always attracted to and tend to write about, there were a couple of things that she wrote about that seemed a little off-base.

Today I'm looking at another bankruptcy discharge case, see more here, where a bankruptcy judge felt it was appropriate to allow for a legal discharge of student loan debt. In this case, the consumer represented herself in the action and has fought a valiant battle.

Oh lazy, hazy beach days. One of the most wonderful things about summer. And what’s a day at the beach without a cooler full of goodies?
But one must be strategic when it comes to packing food for the beach. Because at the beach, there is sand....
