Hey, not too much interesting stuff going on food-wise. I have been trying to be really careful about spending money so a lot of what I've been eating is just repeats of one big dish made at home. I did go out one night this week with my friend Antonia for a couple drinks and pizza:
V for Vegan slice at Two Boots. I think there was another vegan slice too but this one was OBVIOUSLY cooler and therefore more delicious. I dunno if anyone in Baltimore reads this but that is where Antonia is from and she was happy to see they just opened a new location there.
Needed to get out of the house but not spend money. Also I am collecting things to put in the magic jars, so NATURALLY I needed to take a nature walk. It was a beautiful morning. It was a good thing I went out when I did, though; it rained a bit later in the day.
Ingrid's or probably even as scenic as anything Molly and Mike might find but it was a beautiful and very welcome step away from my usual. I'm so lucky and happy to have a park like this so nearby. Fun as it always is to hang out with friends, beyond changing my eating habits, the fall makes me feel
introspective and quieter and I crave
solitude. I'm really enjoying and needing to be alone more recently.
Does anyone else feel like this? Not that I'm ever all that happy to be
with groups of people but even one-on-one is becoming a
little overwhelming. So. The walk took about an hour and a half. When I got home I was ready to eat:
I baked cookies the other day and had leftover dough, so I put that in the freezer. I decided to bake a couple more tonight:
So that's been my fairly frugal week: keeping busy inside reading, sewing, and writing; otherwise just taking walks for fresh air; eating what I already have in the house; finding new ways to doctor up old meals; making cookies rather than buying them... What are yr favorite frugal eats? Or any ways to save money?
