I passed!

I spent the day in town attending an event called ‘Seedy Saturday’ where by we local Sustainability nuts get together to sell seeds and trade tips on growing food in a zone 2-4 area which as you can imagine, is a challenge.

The Community Kitchen was on full alert spinning out goodies and a baked potato something or other that sent my oral factories into over drive.  But I held firm.  I had packed a container of leftover Almost Texas Chili n’ quinoa in the truck and quieted my belly.

Afterward I went for a spontaneous grocery shop (gotta be opportunistic when we are in town) and discovered ‘Chicken on sale’ so I loaded up and I will do my cooking around those specials for the week.

I’m starting to relax into my cooking as I become more familiar with it, so shopping with the specials not only takes into account my cleanse but my sensibilities of ‘saving money.  Oh yeah……I could write a book on ‘saving money tips’. Easily.  It’s amazing how much knowledge we pack away or skills we acquire that we forget are even skills UNTIL you try to impart that information to a teenager about to leave home.  Then you realize just how many great tips you have to pass along.

N’way…….I didn’t cave to the pressure of temptation so I’m going to go home and NOT reward myself with food.
