So just when the dirty snow starts to melt, Mother Nature decided that we needed another deep freeze this weekend! The air temp is 8 degrees and with the wind, well below zero.
But I had a sunny breakfast! 1/2 Sara Lee whole wheat bagel with a schmere of smart balance, 1 egg, 2 tablespoons of peppers, 1/2 ounce Mexican cheese and 3 ounces of mandarin oranges”
Then I went to get an estimate on our car. Guess how much the estimate is: $777! I need to call my neighbors and let them know. Then I went to the post office to get some stamps, to Menard’s for kindling wood and matches for our wood burning stove, and then picked up some stuff at Aldi. We just had this store open near us, and while I don’t go there for my weekly shopping, they do have a few things I like:
At our neighbors daughters graduation party, they had this huge selection of wines to choose from – I especially liked this chardonnay and that’s when he let us in on his secret – all the wine was bought at Aldi and no wine was over $4.99. Sweet! I am glad I am not a wine snob – I usually drink wine out of a box!
I brought Tony home some Wendy’s for lunch. I ordered a plain baked potato and added 1 cup of canned chili and 1/2 ounce Mexican cheese. Plus my Tabasco!!
Okay, so hopefully this won’t gross too many people out, but here’s how Tony’s knee is looking now!
So I am off to make my bread and make my superbowl recipe for the contest. See you later – hope everyone is having a good Saturday!
