Well, the garage sale was a total bust. We had 4 customers in 4 hours...totally sucked. So Dwayne suggested I take out a couple of ads in the local paper to advertise one for next weekend. He seems to think this will make a world of difference, so we'll see what happens. Hopefully we'll have a lot more traffic.
I haven't been grocery shopping in 3 weeks....just been eating stuff out of the freezer and pantry because I haven't had any money in the budget for groceries. Today I scraped up $30 and Dwayne gave me another $35, so I hit Publix with $65 in hand...woo hoo! I took a pic of everything I got. Oh how I missed fresh produce and dairy! As T.J. would say, here's a picture of my loot!
Ok....here's what I got:
split chicken breasts
whole wheat hot dog buns
My sister Amy came over tonight and had dinner with me. She sauteed some shrimp in I Can't Believe It's Not Butter w/ a touch of salt and some pepper, garlic & parsley. We each had a little saucer of it with a salad on the side w/ romaine, spinach, onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, a sprinkle of garlic & herb feta cheese & a splash of Greek dressing. Dinner was light and delicious!
I'm making an effort to get back on the right track with the eating, one step at a time. Dinner was good tonight and I baked some chicken and broccoli in the oven for lunch and dinner tomorrow. Breakfast will be yogurt with fresh blackberries....snacks will be carrots and and a salad I made up tonight so it'll be ready to go in the morning. I've had lots of water this wknd and hope to continue that through the week.
Hope everyone else had a good weekend...I'm signing off so I can get a few more chores done and then get to bed at a decent time. 5:30am comes way too early! 'Nite friends. :)
