*** WINNER: drummmmmrolllllll..... Miss Hannah! Congrats Miss Hannah, you'll be receiving your new picture frame within two weeks! Thank you for the suggestions, you appear to know more than you think you do about feeding people! ***
We’re out of food. Not in the actual, “Cockroaches would starve here” way, but in the “I can’t think of anything to cook anymore” sort of way. I hate that feeling. I’m on track to come in at/under the new grocery budget, which is exciting to me. I wrote the cheesecake that I sent to the fire station off as a “gift”, so I actually probably have about $20 less than what I’m pretending I do.
ASIDE: Did you know that cheesecakes cost that much? Ridiculous. And here I always thought I had cheap tastes.
Anyhow, there’s so much room left in the budget because I haven’t gone grocery shopping for about a week and a half. And I just don’t want to. I can’t seem to get up the get up and go to go and shop. (If that sentence made any sense to you, perhaps you’ve been here too long.) I’m not inspired, mostly because I just haven’t taken the time to get that way. Did you know that inspiration often takes effort? That’s the way I’ve found it to be for me, at least, and I’ve heard from some other people that they often have to grease the wheels before they have an epiphany. Usually, my inspiration for dinners comes from (1) sale notices in the newspaper (or the online version) or (2) perusing online food blogs/recipe sites. But I haven’t really done any of that. And I’m feeling tired. It’s a 5-day week at work, and you know how those effect me.
So instead of making myself do any of that ugly thinking work, I’m hoping you will come to my aid. Suggest some quick, easy-to-moderate, cheap meals for me. I need to make up my grocery list, and before I do that, I need to know what I’m shopping for. If it’s an online recipe, please include the link!
As a special treat, I’ll randomly choose one dinner suggestion to receive a digital picture frame. The two have nothing to do with each other; I just have one to give away. I guess you could load a single picture of your recipe into the frame and use it to cook by. But I’d suggest something pretty or loved, and lots of pictures so you can watch them all change.
My step-dad got one a few Christmases back, pre-loaded with pictures of all of his (then 4, now soon-to-be 7) grandbabies. He watched it for 3 days straight, not even minding when the pictures ran out and started cycling through again. I’m telling you, these things are highly addictive. So put on your thinking caps, and give it to me baby! Give me the best dinner suggestion ever. Remember, though, no fish or beans. I won’t pick you if you put up a dish with fish or beans.
