Re: Daily Check in June 18, 2021

Update: I washed the doors and windows that were planned and a few more. In the process, I discovered why there are flat paving stones laid around our house at the foundation: it's to set a stool on for window washing! My husband usually washes them and is tall enough to stand without a step stool, ...

Re: Daily Check in June 18, 2021

Good morning, frugal friends. Everyone was tired at my house yesterday evening. DH, Lily Dog and I all pretty much flopped into bed and passed out. I usually don't let Lily stay the night with us, but she was so sound asleep on the bed that I did not have the heart to move her. All the rain this sum...

Re: Daily Check In June 17, 2021

Creative, overdoing it is a problem with getting the shot. That second one is rough. I am being less productive today. Have taken up the neckline of a really cute blouse (why is everything cut down to THERE now?) and tried to change out the blades on our hair clippers. Discovered the Amazon seller h...

Re: Ideas? Vegan individually packed dinners that aren't

Sandi, it's super simple: a can of drained steam crisp corn, a can of half-drained black beans, a can of half-drained petite diced tomatoes mixed together with some diced onion and Italian seasoning. If you want to make it more colorful, you can do chopped green onions and throw in some diced cooked...

Re: Ideas? Vegan individually packed dinners that aren't

I often make for my work lunches a corn and black bean salad with petite diced tomatoes and some seasoning.
