* well, another problem hit the fan, well through the mail, and now need to deal with it.
* I've been sitting here this evening, not really starting anything....well, not true. I'm cooking a bag of beans......
Got my food bank things, including four legs and thighs and slow baked them yesterday and then froze them in bags, today, I ate one, and then took the bones, lots of extra meet on them and cooked them with a 1/2 cup of rice added parsley and salt and pepper and it was good. I refrigs the rest of that.
If I put those beans in 1/4 cup baggies and freeze them, I'll have enough beans for a while.
This was my third visit to the food bank and now I have a shelf full of the extra things that I built up, of course I ate the things that I liked first.
It so seems that I have tomatoes on the shelf.
Tonight, the neighbor across the yard and I went to city barbeque, a couple of things here.....it wasn't in my budget, so I "should" have said no. The food was good and I could only eat half of what was there. The atm was down, I drove, and the machine couldn't give me cash, so I told my friend that I couldn't go, and she loaned me the amount for supper.
So I borrowed.....so my social skills stink and I don't have the guts to say no.
I realize what a change I went through getting the food from the foodbank and curtailing my normal habits of eating.
It has required lots of changes. Also, when you cook at home, there is a lot more clean up. convenience foods definitely have some advantages.
An afterthought, watch the beans, don't burn the beans......opps!
