$140 well spent

July 12th, 2009 at 06:45 pm

Last night fiance and I went to Walmart to get a few things.

$19 toaster oven
$25 bakewear set
$17 fire extinguisher
$9 first aid kit
$20 5 qt slow-cooker (probably too big for us but fiance did not want to get the smaller one that was $5 cheaper)
$14 blender

We also bought some pantry essentials: vinegars, stock, rice, pasta, etc.

I don't think we need to get anything else. Some sheets, but we don't need to buy a comforter. Everything else we got from family. Including a microwave.

I put off grocery shopping and now I have to do it. So I'm making a menu for this week right now. Whole watermelons are only $0.50 right now so I'm trying to find recipes utilizing that.

    Some ideas for watermelon include:

    1. fruit salad - maybe combine with canteloupe, honeydew, etc.
    2. put some in a blender and make some kind of smoothie, slushie, etc.
    3. Or, how about my favorite, just cutting off a piece and sitting on the back porch with a salt shaker and eating it?

    Yummy. Now this is making me hungry for watermelon. Big Grin

    not a fan of watermelon, but with the slow cooker - i bought a 6.5 litre one because it was on special, a better brand, and looked nicer Big Grin. there is no way we need a 6.5L slow cooker, but we do make it work by just adding extra veges when we cook something. then DF takes the leftovers for lunch, and sometimes I am able to freeze some for another meal. when i make a big meat dish for DF i make a pot pie the left overs for him, then i usually have miso soup or something Smile
