We've had some big expenses this month, beginning with back to school supplies, clothes, glasses, and now car maintenance...so we are in use it up mode until at least September. I get my next pay in September.
We all that stuff in the freezer that we have put in containers, bags, or wrapped in plastic that need to be used. I took everything out and placed them in the fridge. I've gotta say, that there's a lot of containers that have stuff in them. I call them hidden surprises!!
Tonight I have three 2 cup containers of meat and bean chili that my DH made. What we didn't eat was placed in containers, covered, and put in the freezer. So, I opened three containers, and am heating the frozen chili on top of the stove. I have a small amount of shredded cheese (think about 1/2 cup total) and a small amount of Italian bread. I will serve the chili in mugs, topped with some cheese, and served with a thick slice of Italian bread.
You gotta do what's needed when finances are S-T-R-E-T-C-H-E-D. We did not do our usual two week grocery run today. I am just exhausted and wanted to stay home. Back to work tomorrow night.
That's dinner folks.
