Today is a snow day for us here. The weather forecast is calling for snow to start falling around 7 a.m., so school was cancelled for the day. The teacher I was supposed to sub for texted to let me know yesterday afternoon, so unfortunately, no work for me today.
We made the best of it though and stopped by IGA for some ground beef to make Chili for dinner. I bought this three pound chub of 80/20 for $4.77, which is $1.59 per pound, which is a pretty good price.
I also bought corn (59¢), tarter sauce (1.79), skim milk ($2.99), sour cream ($1.69), eggs ($1.49), cheese ($1.77), and bread ($1.00), and one marked down yogurt (45¢). Some prices were higher because I stopped at IGA, which is where I was located at the time. I didn't want to drive farther (where I normally shop) to save money as the money I would have saved would have been spent on gas.
Snow in the forecast is the perfect time to make chili in my opinion. My family thought so too. So we hunkered down and watched the movie, The Lost and Found Family, while eating our bowls of chili. :)
Two other teachers have called me today for Thursday and Friday. That all depends on the weather though as it is a mixture of snow and sleet right now and the roads are icy and slick. And as luck would have it, they've already called school off for Thursday too, so maybe we will be able to head back on Friday. :)
