Hot, hot, hot

I really needed the a/c today. I didn't turn it on though, hoping to help with the power bill. I didn't sleep well and was up early again today (be careful what you wish for, right?). There were a lot of tornado warnings and watches in the area last night and all day today as well, luckily no damage here. It made for a nervous night.  It has been very warm inside and out, which kept me from sleeping.

 I got up early this morning and for breakfast, I baked a can (yes, I said a can) of biscuits. These are sort of a comfort food for me, although I don't eat them often. I also fix me a couple of Morning Star Farms veggie sausage patties. I put them on 2 biscuits, sliced me an apple and I was ready to eat.

I saw, at the grocery store, that MSF also has hot and spicy veggie sausage. I am thinking of trying it next time. MSF has some new entrees as well. I've posted a link for a $1 off coupon below.

Today I received a couple more samples and lots of coupons. I love when you get coupons with the samples. One of the samples I received was a Quaker Life bar. It was the Cinnamon Roll Raisin Pecan flavor.  I just had to try it right away.  I thought it was very good. It was sort of like a soft granola bar. It had a few rice crispy type crunchies in it, which I couldn't really see, but if you've ever eaten rice crispy cereal, you recognize the crunch. I would buy these, especially since they sent a $1 coupon with the sample. They also have Banana Walnut Bread flavor.

I sort of snacked and skipped lunched today. It was so hot, I really didn't have much of an appetite, but by 5pm I was ready for something to eat. I had leftover baked potatoes from yesterday, so I decide to use those. I peeled them and cubed them up. I also cut up some onion and 4 or 5 mushrooms that needed to be used. I threw the onions in a skillet with a little oil & butter and browned them a little, then I threw in the potato chunks and after a few minutes I threw in the mushrooms. I seasoned them a little with sea salt and pepper.  I removed them from the pan and threw in a couple handfuls of skinny frozen green beans, courtesy of Aldi. I love these green beans.  I sprinkled them with a little of the sea salt and added a dab more oil and turned up the heat. I sort of stir fried them until crisp tender. This meal was both satisfying and quick. Gotta love that.


  1. I got the same Quaker Life bar as you did. I thought it was really good too. What is that freebie site that you use to visit? Talk to you tomorrow.

  2. Most of the freebie sites I use to go to are no longer there. I haven't found any yet that I would recommend. Most send you to scam sites that spam you, etc. So I've been getting most from product sites lately. If I find a good site, I will post it.
