    After several years of buying good deli meat (Boar's Head) for lunch sandwiches, DH and I agreed to simply buy chicken or turkey breasts (on sale if poss), roast them ourselves and thin-slice them instead. Cha-ching! Lots of savings there.
    My therapist told me the way to achieve true inner peace is to finish what I start. So far today, I have finished two bags of M&Ms and a chocolate cake. I feel better already!

    Totally free dinner day for us! I volunteer as a free tax preparer at our community center. The community center has a commercial grade kitchen that people can rent to prepare food for catering. The carterers came back from their event/lunch with lots of leftovers and invited us tax preparers to help ourselves. They had zip lock bags and were nice enough to put 4 mexican rice/chicken stuffed bells peppers into one for me to take home. (this will be 2 meals for us) Then hubbie came home from his volunteer job at the food bank with ready to stirfry veggie mix and a chocolate fudge cake! Since the food bank doesn't open again til Tuesday and all this stuff was already a day past its sell-by date they can't hold it over so it's up for grabs to the volunteers at the end of the day. We love our volunteer jobs!

    Breakfast: scrambled eggs and sourdough purchased yesterday.

    For lunch we finished up the Big bin of salad mix and last of the tomatoes for a lunch salad. both purchased 12d ago.

    Dinner? Roasted brussel sprouts purchased that same day and chicken breasts pulled from the freezer. Slice of sourdough bought yesterday.

    Wohoo! A Saturday with no restaurant meal.

    We got together with my sister and a friend at sister's place last night. We brought the ingredients and DH made a pizza and a calzone, so it was a pretty frugal way to get together for dinner.
