Most of the food I had today was leftover from something – so since there isn’t any tantalizing NEW food to show, only leftovers, I thought I’d share pictures of my deck plants.
I am so proud of the plants on my deck this year. I think the reason they are doing so well is that we have gotten a fair amount of rain. The area I live in has been in a drought condition for so long, but this year we’ve finally come out from that. So I wanted to share some of the pictures I have taken.
I stayed after the Music Camp I am directing this week to do some work at church, so lunch was not photographed due to eating it there and being a new blogger I didn’t remember my camera – but it was an Arby’s regular sandwich (I had a free coupon) a bag of Rold Gold pretzels and a glass of ice water. I know – pretty boring but absolutely free and that is important for me right now! Arby’s has this thing where if you have a receipt and do an online or phone survey you get a free sandwich if you write down a code on the receipt. I had bought a drink there a few weeks ago when they were giving away free Roastburgers and did the receipt thing – so two sandwiches free for the purchase of one small drink. There – a tip on living frugally – the sandwiches aren’t that high in calories so it wasn’t too bad a deal money wise or calorie wise. (The pretzels were leftover from music camp snack today.)
Next came supper and it was another very frugal meal – leftovers. We had pork roast and eggplant rollatini so I had a little of both with one of my traditional salad, some steamed broccoli, and a slice of really delicious canteloupe that we had cut up last night. It seemed even sweeter today!
Don’t you just love all the colors? And here is my traditional salad – I have to have it be colorful as well.
For dessert I had these two delicious vegan cookies that Jennifer made a few days ago. They have chocolate chips in them and I was having a chocolate craving so these hit the spot!
These are as delicious as they look.
