So what goes good with brats? Um, chips?
And then since I used my tomato slicer at lunch, I decided to make this for Tony:
And while I like all things tomato, including TOMATO SOUP which is my fav, I don’t like sliced tomatoes at all! So I made mine with an English cucumber like this:
My side salad tonight: Black Bean and Corn Salad
- 1 can black beans, rinsed
- 1 can white corn, rinsed
- 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice (lime juice would have been better, but I didn’t have any!)
- 1 teaspoon olive oil
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- cracked pepper to taste
All together, with a slice of watermelon to boot!
Okay, so anyone following along, you’ll know I didn’t do my typical grocery shopping this past weekend. Monday, I spent $40 at the grocery store and $13 at Panera for our lunch. Yesterday, I accessorized our dinner (the whole chicken was in my fridge already) with potatoes and chicken gravy, for a whopping spend of $3.26. Tonight, I had to buy buns, a slice of watermelon, potato chips, fresh mozzarella, and more fruit for Hannah now that she is going to be home since finals are over, for a total of $23.00 even. Then I spent $1.07 for my McDonald salad at lunch, bringing my grand total this week so far to $80.33. So that leaves me with $19.67 for the next two days – totally doable!!
I am now watching the second night of American Idol – I am a total sap for it! See you tomorrow, one more step to the weekend!
