This week went by so fast and here we are on Friday again. This week I subbed three days and packed lunches and drinks everyday. The other days I helped my daughter with her reselling business.
Freebies This Week:
This week I received a coupon for a free bag of Purina One cat food. Freebie Shark still has this one listed if you're interested. Click the link here.
Did you know that Whole Foods and Amazon Prime can be linked together to help you save money? Here is a link to read about it.
Last week they had Glen Muir canned tomatoes buy one get one free. This week's deals can be read at the link above.
This week I filed my income taxes and I'm glad to have that out of the way. The tax laws were changed recently and I had been reading that some people were having to pay more this year.
We qualified for earned income since my daughter was still in school last year, but that will be the last year for that.
Meals were hit or miss this week as I was working a lot and came home especially tired one day. I did make Fiesta Rice one day and divided it up into individual containers for lunches.
This is a great plant based recipe that is very versatile. It calls for brown rice, beans, pico de gallo, red onion or scallions, and then whatever vegetables you want to add.
I added a bag of chopped kale, broccoli, cabbage, and brussel sprouts, and also added corn and shredded carrots. My pico de gallo was homemade and already had lime juice for the dressing and didn't need any more.
I love that you can add whatever vegetables you have on hand and nothing specific is needed. It's kind of like making a pasta salad, but this is better for you with the whole grain brown rice.
That's all the news I have to report this week. I hope you've had a good week. It's been hot here, but is supposed to cool off tonight and I'm glad. I hope you have a great weekend!
