Grandson's Birthday

September 24th, 2023 at 04:14 am

Tomorrow is my grandson's birthday. Today I withdrew $250 -- $200 for his college fund and $50 for his gift. I also bought a couple of cards for $10. One is for him, the other is for my son, whose birthday is in February. It just happened to be the perfect card for him, so I bought it.

I did a little juggling and correcting, and my variables are now at 85%.

We will have a little party tomorrow.

On Tuesday, I'll do my last grocery shopping trip of the month.

I've had a hankering for a Reuben sandwich, but when I shopped last week I did not want to buy a corned beef brisket -- way too big. I was at Aldi, so deli options were limited. So I bought canned corned beef, thinking, how bad can it be? It was pretty bad. I will have to think of other ways to use it up. Corned beef hash, for sure, and I can also make a sandwich spread with mayo and relish, like tuna salad.

It's very salty. I doubt I will buy it again.

    CB if you don't like a product from Aldi they allow you to return it for your money back and pick an alternative, i believe. They don't ask questions . Very nice return policy from Aldi.

    Thanks, Michelle, that's good to know!

    If you are going to use it in hash, you can probably dock it in water, then drain it, to reduce the saltiness.

    Happy birthday to your grandson, I love the gift idea.
