DW's Tough Love

November 4th, 2017 at 02:42 am

Thanks to DW's tough love I decided not to hit Target up this Sunday. We have enough meat to last this week coming for dinner so no need to go and buy anything. Tomorrow is Saturday so I have nothing planned, I'll create my meal plan based on what I have. Someone mentioned a meatless dinner so I'll be looking for a recipes for at least two nights this week.

I reached out to my insurance company to get basic insurance for my car. It's fairly old but runs really good thank God. I received a quote that will reduce my insurance about $40 a month. I figured I can do this and add this extra savings to my EF (baby step 1) then tackle my debt.

The fiancé wanted to go out to P.F. Chang's after the game tonight. I convinced him not to go. Honestly; I just didn't want to go, I'm tired. When I called to place the take-out order, we were told 30 minutes. He wanted to wait, I said no. First of all for two of us it would have cost at least $60. Secondly, the wait is always long. And lastly the coupon I had for 15% off was for Tuesday, so that's no good. We ended up getting take out for $18 and I made it home to unwind.

As I'm typing this blog I realize there's some household items I'm in need of (e.g. paper towels). I'll have to check prices and coupons.

That's it for me.

    Amber, stir-fried rice is a great meal that uses up leftovers. I make it when I have leftover peas, carrots, corn, and not enough leftover meat for a whole serving, though it can be made meatless. I put scrambled eggs in it, too. I make up a huge batch and then freeze the extra in ziploc baggies so I can pull it out and thaw it on nights when I am too tired to cook. If you make the baggies very flat, they will thaw quickly on the counter or in a pan of lukewarm water if you don't have a microwave. If you have never made it before, the rice needs to be a day old or it doesn't stir-fry, it clumps.
