A while back, I got 2 bags of carrots from the food co-op. I made a pretty good curried carrot soup with them – with what I had left over after eating some raw – which was about a pound and a half. Last night I made penne pasta with onion, garlic, mushroom, tomatoes and bacon. Very tasty. I had regular cheese, and did not add it, but parmesan would have been good. I’ll have to get some on my next trip – but it’s a good work lunch.

Breakfast has been oatmeal – my go-to. I feel like I have plenty of food right now for one person. Plenty of beans and peas from the garden. I planted spaghetti squash and zucchini and both are starting to blossom. Hope I don’t have zucchini coming out of my ears; and then again, I hope I do so I can freeze some and make zucchini bread. Mmmm, fall cooking is right around the corner.

As always, I encourage you to share your success stories with your own budgets. Along with any concerns you may having cooking different things. I would love to hear your stories and help out!

Have a great week!
