More of the Same...

October 26th, 2017 at 05:13 pm

I went to Aldi this morning after dropping off the boys and going to the gym. I spent $36 on ten items for myself: oatmeal cookies, croutons, ground beef, salad, almond milk, wine, cheese dip, peanuts, vinegar and granola. I also spent $10 on frozen pizza and ice cream to take to C's house -- not that she will eat it, but the caretakers will.

I also spent $1.10 on a sausage biscuit for breakfast.

Today I will pick up the boys and keep them until 6, when I will take them to Tae Kwan Do and basketball, and then home at 7. I'm planning to take them out somewhere for dinner before their evening activities.

I'm supposed to go to a professional workshop tomorrow afternoon but I expect I'll be needed for Grandma duty instead. I told my DIL about the workshop, but I am sure she's forgotten. Heaven knows there is too much on her mind. I may go to the first hour of the workshop and then skip out early when it's time to pick up the boys. Maybe I can get in on the Happy Hour afterwards, if my son comes home from work early enough. We'll see. I don't need to go to the workshop, but I would enjoy the social part of it.

    I'm not wishing to sound critical but it's shocking how much sugar, fat, salt and unpronounceable chemicals are now in take-out and restaurant foods. During this difficult time I wonder if it might be possible to make small versions of crock pot meals easily transported in a thermos each or an entree & salad rolled in a tortilla or stuffed into a pita bread easy to eat meals for example. When our guys were in hockey leagues and driven for an hour to far locations, a favorite was sauté vegetables, diced ham and cheese omelet, cooked to fit into a hot dog bun all to be eaten in the car. Every vegetable and fruit that could be done crudités was tried out. Jicama was the biggest winner. Now days I'd likely try for spirals. We used Convenience store type plastic glasses with snap on lids as though they were dishes.

    It might be easier on income too.
