7/20 Expressions

Frugal Recipe: Banana Slushy - 4 frozen bananas (once a banana starts showing a brown spots on the the peel, DD and DH won't eat it. I throw it in the freezer with the peel - to use, I defrost it for about 10 minutes, then use a knife to "peel" it and throw the peel into the compost. I have heard of people peeling them first and freezing them in a ziploc bag). Broken in a few chunks into the blender. A couple of large dollops of leftover yogurt in the large container - store brand. A splash of milk. Drizzle honey and blend.

From the "garden", my daughter got the first "baby" carrot to garnish her lunch. My husband got 2 small strawberries. We also had 2 green beens stir fried with part of our lunch.

Financial: This has happened to us more than once, but I finally went thru mail that looks like junk. One of our shareowner services notified us that "archive services vendor . . . could not account for one of several boxes of data backup tapes that they were transporting to an off-site storage facility . . ." and of course, our data may have been on there - yada, yada. Anyway, atleast they kindly offered us free credit monitoring services for a year - and we will be sure to take them up on it.

I love when the garden starts to produce stuff! We've been harvesting our swiss chard and kale for weeks now, but I just got my first bell pepper yesterday! It was small, but oh-so-tasty :)

We love our fresh produce too! Next year, with this bit of experience, we hope to do better. Thanks for stopping by!
