Uberfrugal Month Begins

January 2nd, 2018 at 07:13 am

It began for me with a free dinner at Planet Fitness. I was surprised to go there last night and see a very light crowd -- usually it's packed on Pizza Day, but it was very cold, and it was a holiday to boot.

Other than that, I made the chicken/mushroom/noodle dish -- I've got enough for another meal or two. Didn't cook the spinach yet, so must do that today.

Today it is 8 below. That's not even counting the wind chill. It makes me wish I could just stay in, but I have to feed the kids' cats, anyway, so I'll go to the gym, too, and then I'll stop at Aldi for creamer and butter. I'm out of parchment paper, too, but I'm sure Aldi doesn't carry it. Maybe Food4Less does, which is in the same plaza as Planet Fitness. Is parchment paper a need? I hate to be out of it.

I just heard that the deep freeze will continue till the weekend. At least there is no financial hit to me, since I pay for my heat through my assessment fees, which are fixed.

Getting low on dry cat food and kitty litter, but it is not yet a need for today. Maybe within the next couple of days.

    We had a lovely spinach dish from a Martha Shulman recipe from the New York Times. Google Turkish Spinach with Tomatoes and Rice. I read the notes and made it into a main dish with browned ground turkey.
    Stay warm-- this cold spell is something else!

    It feels like the forecast keeps pushing back the date when it will finally start to feel sane again! Right now it's dangling 14-16 F for Saturday. I could have sworn it used to say we'd see those temps Thursday or Friday!

    Oh well. At least it's really showing AS's mom how MN could be, so that can help inform her decision whether to move here or not.

    I do consider parchment paper a need and buy it at Dillon's (part of Kroger company). So, if you have a Dillon's or Kroger near you, you might find it there. Not sure about Aldi.

    I just remembered that Food 4 Less is part of the Dillon's chain.
