Menu Plan for this Week 8/19/19- Starting the Low Carb Diet Again






We starting again...we fell off the low carb bandwagon so we are starting again.  Oh we mostly had low carb dinners but listen the other parts of the day were donuts and McDonald's ice cream.  So, bear with me as I try my best to jazz up my menu with low carb delights.

You know, we both gained back some of the weight we lost this past year.  So now, since Saturday, we have been back to eating healthier.  No more junk!   It will take lots of willpower.  Once you've went crazy, it's hard.  

Here is what I plan to put on the table this week:


Monday             Grilled chicken and green beans 

Tuesday             Big Mac Salad 

Wednesday        Low carb pizza

Thursday           Bean/hamburger  burritos with low carb tortilla

Friday                Leftovers

Saturday            Out to eat (we have a gc from a neighbor for Golden Corral so we will watch it and have low carb there)

Sunday              Turkey noodle soup (made with spaghetti squash noodles from the garden)

Breakfasts 

Boiled eggs, oatmeal x3, chocolate gravy, waffles 2x with blueberry syrup (Trim Healthy Mama recipe)

Lunch
You are on your own.





What do you have planned for the dinner table this week?

My Frugal Ways this Past Week 8/18/19!




It's been all about Back to the Bricks in downtown Flint this past week.  It was all free but we did pay for popcorn -$1.00 and a cup of coffee- $2.00.  We also received lots of freebies!   It was a great cheap date for us. 

Husband fixed the brakes on the car last Sunday.  It took him all day but it saved us about $300.00.  He said it was well worth the time.

I filled out Kroger survey on the back of the receipt.

We are continuing to harvest what we can out of the garden.  Besides a few tomatoes and a few peppers, it's mostly been just zucchini and cucumbers. The zucchini is sliced lengthwise and then frozen for winter lasagnas and the cukes are either put in a salad or eaten immediately.  


I picked the very small corn, that came off my 2 foot corn stalks, this past week.   They were growing in the flood water way too long.

The pumpkins and the watermelon are both growing good but there are no fruits on the vines.  So, they are not going to make it. The green beans are on the prayer list.  

We went to an estate sale and we bought a lot of our cleaning products for our household (detergent, dishwashing detergent, softscrub, etc.) for a $1.00 each.  We also bought a jacket for him and some brand new washcloths and towels.  

My goals for next week:

Grandson went to camp so the wood pile is half done. This week, weather permitting, we will get back to the wood pile.  I did a little work on it while he was gone.  

Harvest what I can out of the garden. 

How did you save money this past week?

Car Show: Back to the Bricks Flint MI



Not a summer goes by that we don't go to see the old cars at Back to the Bricks.  We first go to Saginaw St. for the cruise on Wednesday, then we go to downtown Flint and see the rest of the cars on Saturday (today).   It's all free except for the eats.  It's a wonderful time of looking, and wishing we had saved some of the old cars we had.   Like the Nova, the Chevette, or even the El Camino we had.  Why, oh why didn't we save them?



Although I love old cars, it's the trucks, like the yellow one back there, that I love the best!  



I would have took more pictures on the bricks but I forgot my camera today.   I'll do better next year!  


Then, be still my frugal heart!  

Look at all the freebies we received!   There are a pens, nail clippers, hats, car fresheners, bags, Bibles, and so much more!  Great day!
