Comments: Wow, being on Carl Jung’s personality scales an “ENTP” makes it hard for me to consistently stick to one thing. But this idea of eating for a dollar a day is taking on increasing meaning in that I’m thinking about it every day. I’m still buying things to eat but am conscious of every bit spent. I even brought up the idea to people at the “grumpy old guys Bible study” that I attended today. Dave Mould had determined to buy me breakfast. I tried to keep it inexpensive and so had oatmeal and toast and coffee but was so surprised when it cost over $10!!! Will not make that mistake again. I thought the toast was free for some reason. I don’t know why the guys buy oatmeal AND toast!
Breakfast: 1/2 bowl oatmeal. Two pieces buttered toast. Two cups of coffee.
Lunch: 1 small sweet potato microwaved for 7:30 minutes with two tsp. butter. Filling but not really satisfying.
Comment: I was looking for some meat in the freezer and found a bag of tacitos (see dinner) and also some old frozen meat packages. I took out $21 of steak or chuck roast that had been in there since September of 2007!!! See 2/19/2010.
Dinner: 10 tacitos – corn tortillas wrapped around mystery filling. They were in the fridge and Holita heated them up in the toaster oven.
Snack: 3 slices bread with Brie cheese. Holita and Sara made grilled cheese of Brie melted on french bread. I felt piggish but wow did it taste good………….
