the past two days i have desperately wanted convenience food! i didn't want to stand on my hurting knees and cook food from scratch. i didn't want to shop with my stuffy head.
but i prevailed. i made yummy cheesy tuna pockets with crescent rolls for lunch. for dinner i made 15 spice rub chicken in the oven (i keep a baggie of the rub in my spice basket) and sweet potato chunks for dinner. so all in all, success! and i bought groceries!
i think a big batch of chocolate chip pancakes are in order for tomorrow morning. i freeze leftovers for yummy breakfasts on the run. since i don't eat syrup, a few chocolate chips go a long way to appeasing my sweet tooth.
in answer to questions - for me, i'm not making any exceptions for drinks with friends or gift cards. i would make the gift card exception if i was doing this for a year. and donna, i definitely think you should keep going to get drinks with friends. you have to have little splurges when you live overseas! this, for me, is all to break a very bad habit of mine. the week before i left for christmas with my family, i ate out in some form every day! who did i think i was!? i can't afford that, physically or financially! hence the challenge.
