Staying Good in a World Full of Evil

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

Food, that is...I am almost finished with Girl Scout Cookies, and now we have coupons at work for free food. Free Chick Fil A chicken sandwich with purchase of waffle fries and a drink, and another for one free twelve count nugget with purchase of one twelve count. Well, my plan was to buy the twelve count and get the second free, eat six per day with a salad. Yeah, right! Best laid plans...

Soooo, back to the old drawing board. Off to Sam's sometime this week to buy the huge bag of salad for like $2 and buy some balsamic vinegar. I've already the EVOO at home, along with some seasonings I can use to make a wonderful salad dressing.

Yum! Now, I'm getting hungry. Time for a mid-morning snack: POPCORN!

    that's my problem, too. if i'm at sam's, it's too easy to go overboard! i go in there with specific plans and budget. sometimes, it's a simple as "dinner party" or as detailed as "pork shoulder for dinner on nights 2, 6, 12, and mixed vegetables for nights 1, 5, 10; bag of salad, coffee, rotisserie for tonight...". i use sam's as well as our farmer's market and butcher's shop to help save money. i clip coupons and shop at publix, winn-dixie, and wal-mart. they are all within ten minutes from me. i make a "loop" around, going to each store, with a cooler in the back of the car (we're in florida, and even the winter time is HOT)
