Food planning is getting more and more interesting as we run out of key staple ingredients. Bfst options this morning: oatmeal, toast with choice of spreads (jam/butter/peanute butter), Greek or low fat vanilla yogurt with honey if desired and fruit, planned over Italian sausage-Kale quiche.
Lunch-I am thinking of making a small soup out of some homemade chicken stock, some l/o Chinese food take out (college boy) rice, whatever fresh veg I grab out of the produce drawer (thinking scallions, celery, wax beans). Serve with saltines.
Laundry has been run daily, even combining whites with colored just to get it done. I've posted my washer/dryer on the town Facebook tag sale page (free posting) to try to unload it before we have it moved on Friday. At that point, if still unsold, I'll store it in the garage (luckily we all drive smaller cars), repost it on the FB page as well as Craigslist, explore used appliance stores to see if any exist that will give me decent $ for them. The new rental comes with a brand new, LG washer/dryer front loaders-awesome! I figure that I can recycle the monies from the sale of the w/d into my moving expenses-every bit helps. I'm also "cashing in" my credit card reward points to cover the costs of the paid handyman service that I recently had here to switch things out.
I just posted on a FB tag sale page to purchase a 2 lb bread machine for $15. I am down to one, and it's making a terrible noise. Given my OT issues, this is a real workhorse in my kitchen. For less than the cost of 3 loaves of good bread, I can continue to make our own bread at home, as well as pizza dough, rolls, hot cross buns, etc.
