The View From My Window Today

We had more snow last night, so there was no school again today, and they've already called school off for tomorrow too, so I've missed six days of work in the last two weeks. One of the other subs & I were joking on Facebook that maybe we would get to work in March. :)

What's for Dinner

On Thursday I made what might seem like an odd combination for dinner. In my defense, I am it use it up mode since we have been snowed in so many days in the last two weeks, I've not been able to make a trip to the grocery store. So, I made a package of popcorn shrimp from the freezer, mashed up the last of the potatoes and served some beefy mushroom gravy over the top, and cooked five ears of corn I had on hand, cut them off the cob and served them with butter. Even though it was an odd combo, it was a big hit.

On Wednesday, (Prince Spaghetti Day) I made spaghetti for dinner. I sweated some onions and garlic in olive oil before adding some canned tomatoes, tomato paste, and red peppers from the freezer. I also add some spaghetti sauce seasoning that I pick up from Sam's Club. There was still some left after dinner, so that will probably be lunch today. 

Sam's Club 

Speaking of Sam's Club, I need to make a trip soon and also renew my membership. The savings we earn on OTC medicine there more than pays for our membership there each year. I already have a list of items I've been needing, so I can avoid any impulse purchases. 

How is your Thursday shaping up?

Live simply by not spending money you don't have.

  1. I hope you're not sending that snowy weather up my way....LOL

  2. I've been in Genealogy Land all day here. Eating leftovers for dinner too.

    1. Sounds like fun. Hope you found some exciting things there. I remember finding the census papers from my grandparents in the 1930s when my aunts and uncles were just children and my Mom hadn't been born yet. Fun, fun stuff and a very frugal activity. :)

  3. It is Friday, a day later than your post. Green salad with roast chicken is my lunch today. No snow or ice to keep me homebound; however, the snow view through your window is lovely.

    Through the years, I have spent sleepless nights unable to leave Genealogy Land. Cyberspace's information is invaluable and fascinating.

    1. Thank you, your lunch sounds good. We ventured out today, still some snow here and there, but the roads are good and dry, so that is good.

      I agree the Internet is fascinating. So much to keep us busy learning. :)
