Where did I ever get my meal ideas before I started reading food blogs? 2/3rds of today’s dinner was completely inspired by the world of food blogging…
But first —
For an afternoon snack today, I had a peach and some trail mix.
Dinner was much more exciting ;)
Served with a bit of BBQ sauce for dipping. Meals are always better when they involve dipping of some sort.
This week, I have actually written out my daily dinner plan for each day this week. I could tell you what I’m planning to have in advance, but then I’d have to kill you. OR, I like to keep at least some element of surprise to this blog :) Instead of choosing what to cook and then buying groceries, I bought my groceries first and then planned my meals around this selection. This is a much more frugal way of planning meals because you buy what’s on sale instead of what you need for a specific recipe. However, it’s not the best method for encouraging culinary creativity and trying new recipes!
For dessert, I cut up a mango, peach and some blueberries for a small fruit salad for us both, and had it with a frugal, low-fat brownie and a cup of coffee. Perfection!
Now I will spend the rest of the evening reading and watching TV with a bit of 5-pound weight lifting thrown in for gun-building purposes.
