Snowmageddon and Snowpocalypse. Two words that make me laugh when I read about the snow storm that has stretched over 2000 miles. We got a lot of it here! My kids have thoroughly enjoyed the time off of school and the snow. Here's what it looks like in our driveway.
The Pioneer Woman a few weeks ago and have been waiting to make these when I can eat them. We did a sugar fast for 28 days. Yikes! It actually went great.
Maybe it's the snow that's got me thinking about budgeting. Well, who am I kidding. I think about it all the time.
And I'm okay with that.
No. Really. I am.
We are lucky to find something that we enjoy and can actually do well. Something I enjoy but cannot do well? Play the piano. But that will come with time.
What in particular was I thinking about? Well, cheap meals. Tonight I'll be making ham and beans with cornbread. YUM! Especially when you splash a little hot sauce in it. The bag of beans cost me $1.09 at Target. The bag of cornmeal cost $1.19 at Reasor's. I'm extremely lucky that Grampsy sends me canned ham. But when we make a ham, the leftovers are endless and we never use it all, so I freeze the ham and bone for later. A little oil, salt, eggs and sugar later and I have a total comfort food meal. Perfect for this snowy night.
Enjoy! Stay warm, stay cozy and stay safe!
