We are back from our vacation to Florida. We had fun in the sun and the grandkids got to go to their favorite amusement parks. Youngest went to Disney and the oldest to Universal. We all went to Sea World and seen the whale show. What a great time.
Memories to last a lifetime! I wish I could have took a better picture but they were so far away!
We seen these
Herons Sandhill Cranes (thanks Nancy) in Florida, they don't grow that big in Michigan ha ha. We called them Monsters.
We drove for 2 days to get there and 2 days to get back. The grand kids took a plane home with their mom!
We had a blast but I'm so glad to be back and you know what? My home never looked so good!! Even the cold and little snow on the ground doesn't bother me!
My Diet: This morning I'm starting my diet off right with egg cups made with the deli meat we brought back in the coolers. They were delicious!
I went to the freezer in the garage just now and pulled things out for some of this week's meals. Pork chops, hamburger, fish, blueberries, and a loaf of bread (we love the bread from Aldi's -not too low carb but not bad)
Monday Pork chops, canned green beans flavored with my saved bacon grease, and potatoes (for him)! .
Tuesday I thawed enough out for today and we will have leftovers and a salad.
Wednesday We have a lot of sandwich meat we brought back so we will have that on low carb hamburger buns (or a least I will) and soup.
Thursday Hamburger stew (1/2 pound of hamburger made with my canned tomatoes, frozen corn, and potatoes)
Friday Fish and chips
Saturday spaghetti made with just a half pound of hamburger stretched like I read about on facebook (I'm thinking some oats) and my spaghetti squash.
Sunday Out to eat (planned birthday)- it was really earlier in the week but we couldn't stand to eat out one more day!
Now about that No Spend January I do every year, I'm 5 days late but I'm going to do it anyway. We need to save money.. that's for sure! You can look at the rules I follow here.
So far my grocery list is:
Fruit and veggies
Yogurt (cheapest and smallest so I can find so I can make my own)
I'm so tired I'm just going to Aldi's and not anywhere else. I'll look for more deals later. I'll keep the bill $40 or lower for the rest of the month.
I'm so glad to be back on the blog with everyone- I'll keep you posted how I do grocery shopping and let me know how you are doing. Are you doing a no/low spend month?
