Every Day

August 6: Low Spend Grocery Month Challenge

It is another beautiful day here, sunny and 71. Hubby was out watering all of the flowers in baskets and pots.

While he was doing that, I cooked up a package of uncured bacon that I found in one of my freezers in the refrigerator. I don’t usually buy uncured. I think I had purchased it sometime before the virus came. At that time my sister and family were coming in April. My BIL can’t have regular bacon. That trip was cancelled because of the virus. Until we have a vaccine, we will not reschedule their visit so that we can keep all of us safe.

After the bacon was cooked and drained, it was calling to me. So I made a bacon and scrambled egg wrap using a Keto wrap. It tasted so good that I may do that again this week for brunch. My original plan was to have a broccoli omelet but I finished the broccoli yesterday. 

Now I am off to the treadmill to get in my daily exercise. I don’t really feel like doing it today but I must.

Neither Hubby nor I were very hungry at dinnertime. It got up to 77 here today and it just felt hot. I think that is why we weren’t really hungry. So Hubby decided he was going to eat a little bit of spaghetti and meatballs that were leftover. I cooked a piece of salmon that fell apart while I was cooking it. That is all I ate. Menu plans don’t always get eaten as originally planned in this house. To keep food waste at just about none, we move things around. 

It was a good productive day though. I cleaned our master bedroom from top to bottom. I even tidied up and cleaned out all of the drawers in our dressers and nightstands.

I hope you all had a good day!

When it gets up to 77 here, we feel like we can use the oven…lol. That is a very refreshing temperature. Sometimes, I buy uncured bacon, especially if it is on sale.

It's hard to resist the allure of bacon, once it's been cooking with that delicious bacon smell. 🙂

We've been working hard to eat up leftovers & eliminate waste. I need to figure out what to do with spinach that came in our produce delivery box. I meant to swap it out, but forgot.
