We've been eating a lot of yellow squash from our garden lately. Squash. And beans. I made a huge pot of chili and we have it in some form or another for most of our meals. Oh yes, and corn bread. I made a bunch of that too. Squash, beans, and cornbread.
We had squash pizza, squash sandwiches, and most recently, I added a large batch of squash to the chili. Poor Barry - I'm not sure if he liked yellow squash to begin with. I'm trying to make it appetizing, but I'm not sure if he's convinced; I happen to love the stuff.
You see, we're at the end of the month. Which means that most of our food budget is used up. Yes, there's about $10.00 left but I'm saving that for flour; I used up all our flour in my many baking experiments. Because you see, I don't have a job. No job + husband in medical school = wife in the kitchen a LOT. Here's another addition problem for you: 1 wife in the kitchen + $150 food budget = many creative cooking/baking experiments.
It wasn't so hard to stay under our budget this month because for most of it, we didn't have a car. The beloved Corracle was in the shop getting its back bumper fixed (that's another story for another time) and so I got to experience the joys of carless commuting. I biked to Walmart to pick up a prescription. I ran to the post-office, library, and grocery store, arriving home with an overloaded backpack filled mostly with books. I enjoyed it. But I am glad to have our friend the Corracle back with us.
You may wonder why I'm telling you all this. Two reasons. One, I've been posting way too many blogs without words. I'm trying to remedy that. And two, it's basically just another excuse to put up even MORE pictures of food. I know it seems like that's all I've been posting lately. Mainly because it's most of what I've been doing. And reading. Oh yes, and running. I've been doing a lot of that too. 50k, here I come!
