Pin It I really really do not like Century Link (I'm trying hard to be nice here...)!!! Like really really!! I was going to post yesterday and surely enough, we had another outage and our Internet wasn't working any more!! I swear it happens at least once a month right now. I don't know if they have too many clients and can't keep up or what but I'm seriously considering switching a provider because it wasn't working almost the whole day today and part of the day yesterday!! Anyway, here's my original post :)
Do you go to the sales home parties? I deeply dislike these parties. I understand it's a way for others to make a little extra money but I'm yet to go to a party where I can find something I like, I need and can't find cheaper somewhere else. Most of the time the stuff is way overpriced but I usually purchase out of guilt or because the hostess works hard to organize the party.
I visited a healthy food party a few months ago. My friend was really struggling financially and I wanted to help her out. Plus, I was curious about "healthy food". I ended up purchasing a few things including this:
It's a Thai Sesame peanut butter sauce. It's delicious with pasta but turned out that Hubby was severely allergic to it :( So we only ate it once! I've been moving it in a fridge ever since until it expired ...I didn't feel right to offer somebody an opened bottle... Especially with the price tag of $13.95 for a 12 oz. bottle...Read big sigh here... We also had some canned apricots that got lost on the back of the fridge and went bad and half a can of of mandarin oranges that husband opened and left on the counter overnight...triple sigh this week...
And on our menu (all blue recipes are the links in case you are interested :) :
Mon.- Salmon with apricot glaze (update: made it in the oven, delicious!!), orzo, cheesy zucchini
Tues.- Cranberry ham rolls
Wed.- pasta with tomato sauce, salad
Thurs.- hamburgers, sweet potato fries, corn on the cob
Fr.- Zucchini pasta
Sat.- sandwiches/ ? eating out
Sun.- turkey meatballs, rice, broccoli/ whatever leftovers we have
What are you eating this week?
