Every Day

How Is Your Sunday Going?

Mine is wonderful! It is a beautiful cold, sunny day. I was up at the crack of dawn this morning enjoying my coffee and then going out to run errands while everyone else was sleeping. Seriously there was no one on the roads. 

I stopped at Top’s to fill my gasoline tank up using my $ .60 per gallon discount paying $ 2.08 a gallon. I ran into the market just to get a Buffalo News so that I would have an extra set of inserts.

Then it was off to Rite Aid to pick up a prescription and a 100 ct. bottle of Tylenol on sale for $ 9.03 and  I used my $ 8.00 RA Bonus Cash that was loaded to my card to defray the cost to $ 1.03. 

So I spent $ 4.03 including the newspaper out of my  $ 75.00 grocery money so far this week.

Last stop was at Burger King to purchase 2 Sausage, Egg and Cheese Croissan’wiches and 2 Hash Browns. I had a BK gift card in my wallet that I thought only had a couple of dollars on it. It paid for breakfast and still has $ 9.77 for next time. That made me happy!

After breakfast I had to quickly get my beef eye round roast into the crock pot along with some onion, beef broth, and an au jus packet. I will be cooking that all day to have sliced beef on a weck for dinner. I have made this recipe before and Hubby loves it. It is not very appetizing looking right now so I will take a picture after it cooks.

Then I checked my e-mail and did some computer work, one of which is this blog, while also watching the soccer on TV. 

So far so good. Now it is time to re-organize the stuff under my kitchen sink. I want less under there and more in my stockpile. I just need the essentials. So I am off to do that.

Here is the results from my organizing under my sink. Nice and neat and simplified. All I have to do is put the recycle bucket back on the left hand side in front of my grease jar. Right now it is soaking.

The rest of the afternoon was spent watching a few You Tube videos.

Dinner turned out to be delicious. Here is one of the beef on a weck that we had. 

The au jus that you see on the roll was so scrumptious. I have a crock pot full because I cooked the eye round roast in it. Eye round is a tough meat so it needs cooking in the crock pot to tenderize it. It was melt in our mouth good.  

The au jus is so good that I am going to use it for the base of a crock pot beef barley soup for tomorrow night’s dinner. Hubby and I will team up tomorrow morning to make that from scratch.

I am tired tonight. I feel like I am in a fog. Perhaps the daylight saving time is affecting me. So I am off to bed early.

Did you all have a good day?

It's a very good day today. I am well and do not feel like I am getting sick. It's a shame that I have been so ill so long that just NOT feeling ill I a very good thing. I love eye of round roast. But, do not eat mammal meat because of allergies. I could drink that gravy because it looks so yummy.

Hi Liz, this is Chris. I had a good Sunday, but it was not very frugal. Daughter and I went shopping for supplies we need for 2 bridal showers we are co-hosting for our 2 nieces out of town the next 2 weekends. We did find a few things on the clearance rack at the Hallmark store that we needed, and had a coupon for buy one get one free dozen cookies at Cheryls cookies, which we are using for favors. The rest of the stuff we got at Party City, Costco and daughter ordered from Amazon. Hubby took care of our grand daughter while we were out, so we didn't have to worry about her, and he will help with her during the showers and just bring her in at the end. They had fun, too. She will be 2 next month, so is at a cute age. We had lots of leftovers from the week, so I didn't cook all weekend, and hubby made sausage and egg English muffins for breakfast on Sunday.

Chris again, PS, I forgot to say I had to laugh when I saw your grease jar under your sink, b/c I do the exact same thing. My mom did, and now our kids do also.

I have done this for over 50 years. I don't wnat grease from cooking to go down the drain and clog my pipes. When the jar is full, it goes in the garbage.
