My Dollar-Stretching, Cabinet-Clearing, Clean-The-Food-Up Project For March - DAY 4 - 3/4/14

Good Evening, Dear Friends!

Day 4 of My Dollar-Stretching, Cabinet-Clearing, Clean-The-Food-Up Project For March is over and, boring as it may be, we're still working on cleaning up those leftovers.

To be honest, even though the last of our six children married and moved out almost a year ago, I'm having a hard time cooking for just two. I still cook like we've still got a houseful of children in the home and am often glad I did because, oftentimes, one of the children and their families will drop by and it's always nice to have something to serve up in a hurry. But, at other times...it's like...the leftovers go on and on without end, but...I promise...end they will and we'll be on to newer, more exciting progress reports as the month goes on. For now, here's today's report on the clearing out and cleaning up progress of Day 4...

DAY 4 - Tuesday, March 4, 2014 -

* For breakfast John and I had farina (cream of wheat) hot cereal again with raw sugar and milk. (It's so good! When I was growing up that was one of my favorite breakfasts!)

* We had to go to Nevada today (the Missouri city of...not the state of) and pick up a few things for my dad. Instead of eating out like we normally do, we decided to save the money and pack a lunch. We took our little, insulated, cooler bag along and I packed it with two egg salad sandwiches, a few green olives, a few Greek olives, a couple of handfuls of Chester's, a can of Diet Cherry Pepsi (for me...John doesn't drink soda pop), insulated travel glasses with water, and two cloth napkins. We had done most of our errands before stopping in Walmart's parking lot to eat lunch, so I added two packages of Welch's Fruit Snacks that I picked up at the bread store for a quarter each. They were yummy! Berries and Cherries. :)

* For supper tonight I finished up the last of the stuffed pepper casserole and unstuffed cabbage soup; John had a dish of what he lovingly refers to as 'the regular'. (That is nothing more than pasta with marinara sauce. Being half-Sicilian on his mother's side, it's John's lifeblood. Seriously, he can...and usually does...eat 'the regular' two to three times a day!) :) 

* For snacks we had leftover crustless pumpkin pie with Redi Whip on top and cinnamon graham crackers with peanut butter.

That's it for today, folks! Will see you again tomorrow! God bless all here!

All My Love,
