Meanwhile, I am trying to clean up my act and ate green vegs today--haricots verts, then skinny asparagus. Also made polenta and salmon and yesterday, baked two loaves of oatmeal bread but not what you [or I] might picture. They do contain oats but also molasses, and I used whole wheat flour in place of white.
$ MONEY SPENT OUT OF POCKET
- Starbucks, for Punch and her friend V. after I got them at 5:15 p.m. One of their favorite things to do is borrow my phone and request the "secret" recipe for a Mermaid Frappuccino. The counterperson often asks the girls to look up the recipe on the phone. It involves a green "seaweed" effect. $14.50.
- Facebook birthday donation that went to mental health support, $20.
- CVS, one-stop shopping again, since I went in for two RXs and got all the other things I needed while I waited 15 minutes for the meds, including Hallmark bday card, $50 Vanilla Visa gift card to mail to special young lady, $4.95 activation fee for that, diet ginger ale for Dan, Barilla pasta on sale--and supplies for the Black History Month poster Punch has to hand in Wednesday morning, including glittery stick-on letters, a chunky black Sharpie and a bottle of glue. $100.34 [and that doesn't count the $56.22 out-of-pocket RX payment, since I don't list medical expenses here].
