1. I froze avocado, pear, and pineapple.
I had a mushy pear, which was no good for eating, so I froze it for smoothies.
And I ended up with too many ripe avocados at once, so I froze some avocado chunks.
Aaand my new pineapple ripened before the old one was all eaten, so the older pineapple pieces hit the freezer too.
What would I do without smoothies??
2. I made dinner even though I wasn’t here to eat it.
Last night, I took Lisey out for a belated birthday date, but I made dinner for my family ahead of time so that they wouldn’t need to eat out.
(Clam chowder, which reheats very nicely!)
3. I asked for a cheaper inhaler.
Sonia needed a new inhaler for her seasonal allergies, and the initial one prescribed was many dollars.
So, we called the pediatrician and got a new one that was slightly fewer dollars.
Ever better, the expiration date is over two years away, which means Sonia can use it for TWO allergy seasons. She only needs the inhaler for a few weeks each year, so the expiration date always happens before she uses up the inhaler.
And it’s super frustrating if it expires right before allergy season (which is what happened this year!)
4. I used frequent diner credit.
When Lisey and I went out for dinner, I asked the waiter to see if we had any credit from the frequent diner program, and we did!
It wasn’t a lot, but hey, every little bit helps.
5. I’m coming up dry.
I can’t think of much for #5. Ummm…I packed a lunch for Mr. FG using leftovers from our Easter dinner.
How about you?
Hopefully you’ll have an easier time coming up with five than I did today.
