No More Fast Food!

I'm on a bit of a rant lately. I had a migraine yesterday which interfered with the natural progression of my life so I'm a bit snarly. I am also extremely tired of fast food. I have on occasion posted a freebie or discount coupon for a free Arby's Roastburger or some such thing. This KFC/Oprah thing has worn me out, though. I am done with pursuing any deals like this. We are clogging our arteries for a dollar. In my office we are forever trying to bring lunch to be frugal and healthier. We do fine for a couple of days, then life interferes and we're back to square one. I did two days of excellent leftovers this week and was so proud but then today ended up getting someone to pick up Long John Silver's for us. We had coupons and that was the deciding factor. Well, no more, I say! No more! I have got to get a grip because my junk food high only lasted until about 2/3 of the way through my meal and then I was regretful in oh so many ways. I am going to start tallying up my lunch-bringing adventures so you can all keep me honest. We decided in the office to bring our lunch four days and allow ourselves one day out to splurge. Sounds doable so we shall see.

In the meantime, it's strawberry season here in Kentucky so I will be hopefully making preserves this weekend. Stay tuned for frugal Memorial Day weekend adventures in the kitchen! Three days off in a row. Whooooohooooo! Hit your local farmer's market and buy something good and good for you like the fabulous cheeses pictured above which i will be investing in on Saturday.

The KFC thing left me frustrated too. I will not be eating there for a long time.
