We’ve been having a really busy few weeks and with company in and out of town as well as two dinner parties to host, I just really needed a break.  We’re trying to stick to budget, but not the $25 one.  Instead I’m using that “extra” money that usually goes towards the beef fund to cover all the extra stuff for these parties.  Also not taking pictures of everything that comes into the house. It’s just too busy.

I DO have to share the jackpot I hit in the produce markdown bin at Kroger the other day though:  All this for around $9. And I paid full price for the pineapple, tomatoes, onion and squash, that are included too!  Oranges, pears, mangoes, grapefruit, apples, lemons, green peppers – YUM!
