Day 2 of living without
The weather is starting to become more and more chilly. Which means it's that time of year for sniffles and snuffles. So we all turned up at our local medical centre for our flu shots, we received a free cap and water bottle.
Meanwhile I've finally managed to sort out my bedroom, clear away the clutter and organise things I want to keep to see if I can find some way of making something useful out of them. There are some old clothes I'm going to cut up and make up into rag rugs for the ugly fabric. I'll cut the nice fabric up into charm squares for other projects.
Dinner today was a cheap meal of pasta in a bowl using items from the pantry. Carbonara sauce is cheap to buy and easier to make as well.
Step 2: Add pure cream. Bring to boil and simmer for 2 minutes or until slightly thickened. Stir the sauce through cooked pasta and add grated cheese over top. Season with salt and pepper.
“I have done quite a lot of canning of what is left of the fruit and vegetables, and for the winter I think I shall make a quilt to keep from getting lonesome, for some of the women around here are real interested in quilting again.”

This is a no spend day.
I hope everyone is having a good day or evening where ever you are.
