Guests Left

July 19th, 2017 at 07:41 pm

My parents left this afternoon after visiting for nine days! It was great to see them, but that was a really, really long time. I now feel like I need a vacation.

I don't think I spent too much money while they were here, as they took us out for several meals and even bought some of the groceries. We limited our trips out of town to two, which I purchased gas for. The museums and the beach were free, we also played a lot of games to keep ourselves out of the heat.

I do know some food was thrown out, but I now intend to use of the leftovers in the coming days. My meals may be a bit odd! The most frugal snack I bought was a large 2 pound bag of popcorn that cost me $1.79 at the commissary. We didn't use it all, but it made a lot of popcorn just using the pan on the stove. I had forgotten how fast and easy it is. That is a huge savings over microwave or pre popped popcorn.

I hope to have more updates soon, but for now a little rest before I get back into the routines!

    Get some rest! I think guests--lovely as they can be--are exhausting. Too many people with wishes and needs.

    Popcorn is the best! It's yummy, feels festive and like you say costs pennies. We do ours on the stovetop in soy butter with salt and nutritional yeast sprinkled on top. But I've successfully air-popped kernels in a paper bag in a microwave when none of that was available. It's amazingly versatile!
