I wish I could write a huge post today but I'm really exhausted right now. My kids were both a little sick last week, and now Hubby and I got it too :( I hope it's the last cold of the season but I'm pretty miserable right now. So this post will be pretty short but I should be back very soon.
But first thing first, guess what I have now?? If you look at the top right corner of my blog, there is a new button there. On My Side of the World is now on Facebook!! Yes, it took me a while to get there but I finally got one. So, please, click on the button and come follow me!! When I reach 150 followers, I'll have a fun giveaway!! :)
Other than that, there is not much happening here. I went through our fridge and pantry and chucked everything that expired away. So today I have a little more food waste than usual:
1. First, I had two cans of soup that expired...uhmmm...6 months ago...I know, I know. The thing is, we NEVER eat canned soup at home because it tastes nothing like homemade (no matter what all the ads say). I got it for my husband when he still had an office job. But now his responsibilities changed, and he spends most of his time in a car, so no soups for him any more. Honestly, I just forgot all about them. Hence the results :(
2. Then, the salsa. I LOVE (and it was love from first bite) Great Value Peach Chipotle Salsa from Walmart. It is so good!! But then I saw this mango peach kind in a local store, and thought it would taste even better.I was WRONG! It tasted absolutely disgusting! And no matter what dishes I tried to put it in, it was still just gross. So it was time for it to go. No regrets here (well, other than wasting $4 on it!)
3. Also this week, we threw away a pack of potato gnocchi (don't ask me why, no excuse. We just never used it before it expired), a spoonful of spinach dip and half of an avocado (again no excuse other than the fact that all three boys can't stand avocado).
All in all, I had better weeks :( But I'm too sick to care right now. As for our menu this week, I don't have one. For the reason, see above. So unless you want to bring me a pot of chicken soup, we will rely mostly on food I have in the freezer and leftovers. This is one of those weeks when I'm grateful we have a full freezer!
So here is what's happening in our frugal Chez. What's happening at yours?? Come on, tell me something good :) Or funny :) Or unusual :)
OK, now I'm blabbering... I better go get to bed...Night night, everyone!
