- wood paneling
- pink carpet in a boy room
- broken baseboard heaters
- no closet in the rec room
And I won't settle for having my bedroom oasis look like a 70's reject. So it's a serious Trading Spaces week around here. But with a WAY smaller budget and an already stressed out woman. I'm looking forward to posting before and after photos when it's all finished.
So when I woke up this morning I knew I better stick something in the crock pot for dinner or we'd be tempted to spend the remodel budget on fast food.
Today's Unshopping Unplanned Menu looked like this...
Cinnamon Toast and applesauce for breakfast
Lunch was sandwiches and grapes
And dinner was creative. I had some stew meat in the freezer so I tossed it in the crock pot with potatoes, carrots, 3 cloves of fresh garlic, 1/3 bottle of red wine that company left at our house a few weeks ago, water, onion soup mix, salt, pepper, and a bay leaf. It turned into some yummy beef stew.
Not bad for a cupboard-scrounging meal. And if you're just tuning in, I decided that grocery shopping was overrated this week and I just wasn't gonna do it. Instead I'm shopping from my cupboards to see what kind of meals I can come up with.
