Frugal Living: Leftovers for 2 days, but plans for tomorrow

May 24, 2022 8:59pm CST
I'm doing my best to use up food and not buy new things that I don't yet need.. Last night I ate up the leftover baked buccatini pasta with a salad. Today for lunch I made hash brown potatoes, grilled tomatoes with spinach, and a couple of fried eggs. Tonight, I ate up the leftover swordfish, broccolini, and I made another salad. Tomorrow, I will make sure that I cook up a small package of short ribs and use the last of crimini mushrooms with it. I will make it in my small instant pressure cooker. I will probably cook carrots to go with it. I'm sure that I'm going to get hungry here in a little bit, so I will have a cup of tea and an apple for dessert in a few minutes. What was your dinner for Tuesday night? Photo is my own.

We had leftover roast pork. We needed something quick and easy as we were going to the movies.

@TheSojourner It was in our village clubhouse - a very old one - Inn of Sixth Happiness.

I didn’t eat much today. I’m going easy and cautious not to overload my stomach.

Short ribs sound good. When I was shopping I hadn't seen them in years. I had a strawberry yogurt and a pancake dog.

I like the boneless ones. I leave the bone-in for others.

Spent pretty much all day at the hospital as they said after the procedures, my son could not drive for several days. It was a long, tiring day. He had not eaten for quite awhile, he was discharged about 6:30 pm, and by then I was starving, too. We sucked it up and went to Olive Garden, I had a hoarded gift card so we blew it. I brought home the leftovers for tomorrow. So, does the gift card make me frugal? LOL. Other than that, I got almost nothing done all day today. Before I left I did a load of laundry and that was about it. Now I am out of the mood and out of energy to do anything, and I need to go to bed shortly. Maybe. Tomorrow will be a better day.

Hugs. Sounds like it was a mentally exhausting day. The gift card makes you fortunate. You deserved to enjoy it!
