I spent most of my day with these little guys…
That is one worn out rug. But it was free. Frugal!
So I baked the zucchini loaf and watched a movie all before 9 am and then I proceeded to clean out my refrigerator which is a feat never accomplished before. To answer some of your questions: Yes, I have lived here over a year. Yes, I am very lazy. And, yes, it feels great to have a clean fridge! I threw out old jars of olives, empty jars of jam, spoiled applesauce, and moldy hummus. It was pretty disgusting. I am so glad it is done!
For lunch, I had an Arnold Wheat thin topped with microwaved eggs (2 whole eggs), sliced tomato, and cheese. Delicious!
I also had a slice of zucchini loaf. Maybe half the loaf is gone already? But I’ll never tell!
I spent the early afternoon in my backyard with my iPhone, a stack of old magazines, a library book, and a Chocolate Cherry Bomb! Perfection, thy name is a mid-summer day.
Ironic that the magazine talks about “more energy now!” because I only lasted about an hour before I headed inside for an afternoon nap. Did I mention I got out of bed at 5:39 am? 🙂
I nibbled on chocolate, trail mix, and more zucchini bread (!). I did some laundry. I stared into the baby’s crib (my current favourite hobby. 14 more weeks to go!). Hubby got home and we lazed around. I began to crave pizza even though husband wasn’t hungry at all. Ordering pizza alone is no fun, plus it is neither fit nor frugal. So I decided to create my own pizza substitute using the minimal amount of groceries we have.
First, I sauteed some zucchini, broccoli, and onion in herbs, garlic powder, and olive oil…
I microwaved a couple of sundried tomato tortillas and then stuffed them with this veggie mix and some cheese. I heated up a small bowl of marinara sauce for dipping purposes. Ta da! Cheap, easy, pizza-craving-satiating dinner!
For dessert, I had a small bowl of chocolate chip cookie dough ice cream, aka best ice cream ever.
Tonight we are watching Dexter, that show about the likable, sociopath serial killer. Good times! Who knows what tomorrow will bring? I am hoping something tasty…
