Bet you are wondering WHY I have a picture of groceries..well I will tell you..this is my SHOW AND TELL for today!! I am SHOWING you groceries that I just bought and I am TELLING you that this small amount cost me $66.00!! WOW!! No wonder families are having a time making it!! There is just 2 of us and look this is hardly anything..No meat..vegies, fruit and some things to make a few meals and that is it!! Our economy is horrible now. I have seen groceries just climb!!
With milk over $3.00 now; bananas at 62 cents a lb; dozen grade A (18 count) eggs at $2.23
and then trying to add in what else you need to make a meal or hopefully several meals then it just gets ridiculous!!
Also I thought I would include a picture of our granddaughter at her spelling bee. She did not go far but she tried. She said she was so nervous when she got up there and saw everyone...She had a trial word of" her" and spelled it...h-e-er....She was just nervous!!
Today I am off to pick up the kids once again...Their daddy is waiting (I don't know how patiently) for the people at the RV place to get their 5th wheel ready to pick up..I guess he will be late getting back tonight.
I found a new recipe so am trying that today..It is called Lentil and Rice Soup. You make it in the crock pot!! I so hope this is good. I bought some real nice crusty bread to eat with it and I think I am going to also make chicken salad for sandwiches. I have a German Chocolate Cake that is about to be frosted....
I think I had better eat while I can. Tomorrow I am going to a meeting at Curves. They are starting their new program with a food plan. It is FREE!! I thought well I will try!! I have days that food does not bother me at all..then their are days like today that I just cannot get enough to eat!! I wish that i could conquer this bad habit of mine...I bet you do too!! Most of us have this silly problem!! I try to keep good things here to eat but well you know..I slip just like everyone else does!!
Better get that cake iced. It will be time to pick up those two from school once again!! They are really good kids so it is not at all a problem for me...love being close to them...
Thought for the day: "When God takes something from your grasp, He's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better."
