Every Day

A Little of This and a Little of That

Since Hubby and I love to do drumsticks in the air fryer, I finally got up to Aldi’s this week and got two packages at $.79 a lb. The price came off the receipt at the end. This is the best price that I have gotten for these in a very long time.

Once I got home I immediately used the food saver and froze them into meal size packages.

On Thursday, I had a Walmart delivery. I was pleasantly surprised that they sent all of these things free. They were inside that snowman bag. Since we are getting low on floss, I was happy to get that. Hubby can’t wait to try the mustard. I tried the coffee this morning. I put the GV knockoff of Nutella away for when my granddaughter visits since she loves it. You have to love freebies!

Hubby and I have been taking it easy and watching a lot of movies and shows on Netflix and Amazon Prime. We have been watching football games too. I have been trying to keep him off of his foot so that it will heal. It is getting there but I don’t want him to do too much too fast. So I have been doing all of the work and waiting on him.

He was craving beef barley soup so I made a pot last night. We will have it again tonight. I rarely measure anything when I make soup. It was just beef broth with chunks of beef, sliced carrots, diced onions and celery, and pearled barley. He loved it!

Since we have everything done for Christmas, we have been working on our financial plan for the New Year. We have a number of projects planned through out the year. If and when we can all travel again, we will be doing some of that too.

I have been planing out my blog posts for 2021 and listing the topics. I am hoping to teach you many more things.

Are you all ready for Christmas? Have you written your goals and plans for 2021?

Hi AD. I made chicken barley soup this week. I put some different veggies in it this time: onion, a leftover baked potato, some butternut squash and spinach. It was really good. I used a chicken carcass to make the broth. I am going to make split pea soup sometime this coming week with the leftover ham bone from Thanksgiving that I had put in the freezer.

We went to Costco this week and stocked on the things we most use there so we don’t have to go back in the next 2-3 mos. I just opened the last jar of applesauce so will be planning an Aldi trip sometime early in the week. I will wait for the ad to come out and see if the Wed meat deal is something I want.

I am not sure all of how I will need to plan for our 2021 finances yet. I know our property taxes are going up. I know hubby is supposed to get a raise. But not sure how much either of these will be yet. I also decided I need to revise our Christmas budget by a bit since we have another grandchild. We aren’t traveling this year and I am not doing the big baking marathon like usual this year, so that helped.

Hi Chris,

Yeah on the barley soup. Hubby and I love barley in soup. I am happy that you got stocked up. We are trying to stay out of the stores by doing Walmart delivery although I did go to NP this week for meat.

We just got our property tax bill which went up $156.01. That is quite an increase this year. UGH.

You did well.
