I swear I went to the grocery store every day last week for Kleenex and juice. We’re shaking off a cold virus and it feels good to return to some normalcy.
I had a no-spend, no-drive day today. Walked daughter to school, walked to work. The extra time I saved not running around on errands after work gave me time to harvest some rhubarb, one of the perks of living in a cold climate.
A favorite recipe is Rhubarb muffins. The recipe I use if on the Creative Savv blog. The recipe is wonderful because it isn’t too high in saturated fat. If I make a rhubarb pie or cake I am going to be the one eating most of it. If you can swing the touch of almond extract in the recipe, you will find it gives great “bakery” flavor!
This afternoon I am continuing to plan a grocery stock up trip to take advantage of the Memorial Day pricing on summer staples. This is the time to grab graham crackers, marshmallows, ketchup, hot dogs, chips, pickles, and meats for the grill. My coupons are in disarray so I need to cull through those as well.
I have got to make use of a potpourri of canned beans in the freezer. Does anyone have a favorite chili recipe that uses beans and not too much meat? Crock Pot would be great. Feel free to link in comments!
