As exbf was coming into the house and I had gone back to car to get something, he commented to me as I came back to the side door. "You have an animal crying under the house." We discussed this for longer than necessary as I could hear nothing under the house. The cat that hangs around was meowing continuously and plaintively. I have no idea what that cat wants! Plus, there was a large bird screeching overhead, high in the hickory tree.
I heard nothing he heard. He could not hear the cat meowing or the bird screeching. ??? Finally, he concluded it was another acoustical event.
For lunch we had a hotdog on a bun and blackberries. I cannot believe I actually got to the market in time to get blackberries because I have been told they sell out as soon as the guy puts them out. We got a free worm, too. I refrigerated him. It was a splurge, but I spent $6 on blackberries.
For dinner, we had barbequed chicken on a hotdog bun, cole slaw, sliced tomatoes, Fordhook butter beans, potatoes with real butter. He said I gave him so much he could not finish it. Tomatoes he left on his plate went home in a snack bag.
He took home a massive breast I sliced, at least three meals worth. I gave him to take home strawberries, green grapes, red grapes, potatoes, Fordhook butter beans, four hotdogs, two tomatoes from market. Of course, he paid for some of that. I shop and cook. The potatoes were from the Farmer's Market and delicious!
Today, I saw a sign at a business: Free Hotdogs. Of course, I stopped and the people offered me two. I was asked to write my name and address on a list. I will be sent a $10 coupon to shop there. At home I had lettuce and tomato salad. Ooops, I forgot to send lettuce and bell pepper home with exbf.
There was enough meat for at least one meal a day for a week. The vegetables will probably make meals three days. Fruit will probably be enough for five days.
I have had way too many hotdogs this week! The hotdogs I bought at WM were Oscar Meyer and came in two zipped bags with a band around the two package of four hot dogs. I like that because I don't have to thaw out the whole package to eat hotdogs. Plus, the packages of 8 were price-matched for $1.
What have you bought at a Farmer's Market lately? Any bargains elsewhere? Do you have a friend who does not cook and loves to take food home to eat later? Do you ever see random signs for free hotdogs?
