Another easy day for the challenge
My husband takes a packed lunch bag to work. Today, it had a string cheese, a little dish of mixed nuts, a peeled orange, some fruit cocktail, cole slaw and a dish of leftover blackeyed peas and rice along with a thermos of coffee. He usually drinks orange and juice before he leaves for work and then eats what I pack on his lunch hour and morning break.
I had banana muffins for breakfast, skipped lunch and ate fresh pineapple for my afternoon snack.
Supper was a big green salad, mixed veggies, and a casserole made with cooked chicken from the freezer, a tube of crescent rolls left from Christmas and the last can of cream of soup in the pantry. I don't plan on buying more cream soup and will try some of the recipes to make it homes.
I also made a batch of oatmeal cookies for dessert if we get hungry tonight and for snacks later in the week.
Our local grocery ads started a new cycle today but I did not see anything in them we need right now.
We have some big financial goals for 2013.
We think they are doable with a little planning and work.
But, today my husband got his first paycheck with the 2% change in SS taxes.
2% is a big chunk -
just a warning to you to be prepared when you see your first 2013 paychecks.
I knew this was coming but it was still not a good surprise.
It makes me even more determined to continue this challenge.
