Day 23--finishing the day with a very easy dinner
June 23, 2022 10:13pm CST
I resisted the urge to go to the grocery store today. I didn't really need to go, but I'm going through a little bit of withdrawal. So, I went ahead and made sure that I planned on a couple of things for this hot weather, and kept myself busy so I didn't go spend money. When it was time for dinner, I didn't want to do anything fancy, so I simply had two of the beef low-fat Hebrew National frankfurters with some barbecue sauce, potato salad that I made earlier in the day, and the last of the beetroot and cucumber salad that I had leftover from yesterday. It all fed me, was relatively healthy, and didn't cost me anything else from the store! Photo is my own

@TheSojourner I season the cannellini with olive oil black better, salt and chopped red onion. I place the cannellini on the dish and the tuna (canned in olive oil) on top of the cannellini. We had a tomato and lettuce salad as a side dish.

@LadyDuck as you were describing it and I first started reading it, I thought about putting a bed of greens on the plate and some sliced tomato and then piling the the seasoned beans atop that and then the tuna. It sounds like we're on the same page.
It's only a week left of June. You can do it! Do you have sensible stuff left that you can eat without buying too much extras? I assume you have stuff left to eat :-) But there's food you have and then there's the food you want. I did have some extra gin and tonic this week, since you didn't want them. And some extra ice-cream. Too warm not to eat ice-cream. I have to go back to try all the other varieties ;-)
@TheSojourner It was great, there's bread in the freezer but I still have too much to do some I'm wondering why I didn't just stay til over the weekend. Maybe all the things that I have to do would have just disappeared! ;-) Off to do the first one now. Then to a wedding. I will go underdressed, eat and leave. Hope you have good weather and interesting things to cook :-)

Yummy!!!! What did you put on the potato salad? It looks like it is tasty! I may try what you tried for July. I will be going to the grocery store at the end of the month with my peer but may try to buy enough to freeze some food and not go grocery shopping for the rest of the month. I am trying to use what I have until next Wednesday when i go out again grocery as i didn't go this past wednesday as it was way too hot
