    my DH is THE biggest PITA when it comes to meals. I'll ask him " what would you like for dinner " ? nearly every time he wants a recipe that we have NONE of the ingredients for in the house?!! I'll remind him again to look in the freezer at what meat we have, check the fridge for veg, check the storeroom...he forgets that we don't NEED to buy anything new. Otoh, he is an amazing cook! ha ha

    your New Year's energy is awesome! I agree 100% on your plan to use up what you have and buy less groceries. We are in that same mindset. Good luck.

    I use a large 1.5 Litre jar of roasted red peppers to make a large batch of pureed cauliflower/roasted red pepper soup. The yield is 30 x 1 cup servings, so the sodium is minimal really. I've tried 2 different brands, S & F and Fino. A 30 gram serving of these jarred peppers contains 130 mg of sodium.
    I never buy canned soups for myself, they are ridiculous with sodium, however my guys eat them at work sometimes. Good on you for roasting your own peppers!

    ha ha ! I also remember strange people who stood in line at Mandarin for hours! You nailed it, what a colossal waste of a day! Jury is still out about NF. I'll drive over 15 min.
    before they open but if there are more than 100 people in line I'll head back home. ha ha ( good thing it is so close to me. )

    Thank so much for thinking of me with the Violife coupons <3. I was shocked when I saw them at my NF (and of course I stocked up on them )

    noticed your soup post about roasted red pepper. Believe it or not that soup was never on our radar until we had a bowl of it at Kelsey's ( of all restaurants? ) .
    They no longer have it on their menu, but I've graduated to a rstd red pepper/cauliflower version that I make extra spicy by adding cayenne, smoked paprika and turmeric.
    I always puree it after cooking. So good.

    ty for your comment about Lose It. It took me getting totally annoyed with myfitnesspal to start looking around for another one. I'm really going to try hard this go around to drop the rest of this awful weight! My sisters both laughed at the Lose It prediction on how long it will take to drop that remaining weight and we all agreed how tough it will be to get through all the Holidays and birthdays between now and then. ha ha

    Your first cruise!!?? Congrats!!! No kids right?, just you girls maybe? We took our 3 on the Cruise ( a million years ago ) and I was always trying to see where they went!
    Very nervous the whole time, well, until the drinks were served ha ha . Plus the eating is 24/7, was so hard to stay on any diet at all. I hope your cruise is a fantastic experience!

    I hear ya about the kitchen being trashed. I wake up to that often when DH gets into his pasta and meat sauce making mode in the middle of the night! lol

    lol! yes, fridge clean out pasta! I'll be damned if I'll allow my mushrooms, broccoli and other stuff to wrinkle up. The guys loved the taste of it too!

    Well I did indeed intend to leave rep but the wee screen on my phone got the better of me! Anyhow I was going to wholeheartedly agree with your take on shovelling snow and how quickly the novelty wears off! Enjoy the beauty of it, keep it all where you are.
    Have a great week!

    ty for the weight loss encouragement, it sure does NOT get easier the older I get. Our fridge has been overcrowded most of the summer with watermelon too! The stores have had such awesome sales, and the insides of each one were so juicy and red we kept buying another and

    regarding my NF spinach haul today, they did have smaller bags of spinach on for $1.99, which IS also a sale but a quick math calculation made me realize the big bag had more in it, even if I bought 4 of the smaller bags to reach $8.00, it was still less spinach.
    Sometimes I get too involved in what is in the fridge, but as you say the guys grab what is dead centre in front of them! ha ha

    ty! wrt the shrimp being sauteed in butter, garlic and ginger and tossed into that Chinese rice mixture, I cannot take credit, DS made the shrimp suggestion! I just wish I'd made more rice. Enjoy your weekend!!

    ha ha I am not kidding about the math thing, both DS and DH , well their brains are wired differently from mine and it can be frustrating when they calculate in their heads and leave me in the Good you got a chuckle.

    Hey, Frugal! I just read your post wrt starting a little business, good for you! Have you looked into tax laws, how much you can make before you need a retail licence? I had one years ago when I was doing fresh and silk wedding flowers from home, but yikes the licence fee has sure gone up! Enjoy your new projects!
