After that we went to Buy Low!! I'm so excited that we can go to Buy Low again! We couldn't before because the car wasn't registered and I wasn't going to drive to almost another city (it's on the border between our city and the one south). Buy Low always has awesome produce prices, and on Wed/Thurs they have special produce sales. So for $15 we got 13 bananas, 4 onions, 5 apples, 2 pears, 1 1/2 pounds of grapes, cilantro, parsley, celery, 1lb carrots, 3 limes, 2 green bell peppers, 2 lbs broccoli. That's really quite good for where we live. We also got 5 gallons of milk, a dozen eggs, bread, tortillas, bottled juice, frozen juice, peanut butter, and two boxes of cereal. In all, today WIC saved us $50. Hurray!
Earlier this week we got to play with our friends again. Their mom decided 2 weeks in seclution was enough(had a baby). We played outside since it was a nice day. Some neighbor kids came over to the park and got everyone playing a game of tag. I got to hold a tiny sleeping baby! 16 weeks and I'll have my own.
Anyway, pictures from the girls playing:
Drama Queen made "bird nests".
Not quite to the caliber of a lizard trap, but then lizards aren't plentiful here like in CA where I grew up.
is what we had for breakfast this morning. We are making use of the plethora of bulk things I picked up at WinCo last year as well as food storage. I was excited to find this recipe because we had all the ingredients! Well, I used regular powdered milk instead of soy milk powder. And I got tired of chopping dates so I added in some currents to make the right amount of dried fruit. It was good! Mischief ate hers up real quick, Drama Queen took a bit more prodding, but in all it was well liked. I think I'll fry up the leftovers tomorrow and serve them with honey and yogurt. I think some chopped nuts would be a nice addition to this as well.
Anyway, as I try these "strange" new recipes, I will be sharing them on here. So I'll be posting another recipe later as we will be having a quinoa based meal for dinner tonight.
