I had one banana that needed to be used up today, so I made banana waffles for breakfast this morning. In the process I used up the last of a box of pancake mix that my Mother bought when we last had overnight company along with the last of a bottle of sugar free syrup. I'm in the process of using up all those things that are lingering in the pantry.
I also used up two boxes of black cherry jello along with two cans of mixed fruit and made some jello with fruit. This will be a refreshing dish since the weather is calling for high heat and humidity today.
I went into the pantry and organized in there a little bit. I found a can of black olives I did not know I had. I will be adding those to some pasta salad soon. I also realized that I am down to one 28 ounce can of tomatoes. I knew I had used a lot this summer, so I will need to stock up on those again when they are on sale. I still have about a dozen or so of the 14 ounce cans of diced tomatoes though. I also need to add tomato sauce to my ever growing grocery list.
I pulled out some turkey meatballs out of the bottom of the freezer for dinner. I have not decided if I should make spaghetti with them or serve them with brown gravy and mashed potatoes. I also pulled out a package of sandwich rolls out of the freezer in case I want to make garlic bread with the spaghetti. Later this afternoon I decided on the spaghetti and meatballs with garlic bread. I also made a salad to go with the spaghetti.
What are you having for dinner tonight?
Today will be a no spend day, staying home, tidying up, folding laundry, and enjoying ourselves and the last weekend before school starts on Monday.
Live simply by not spending money you don't have.
