|Yum. Shopping Detox No Spend Challenge Lunch.|
So, today worked out totally fine without buying any groceries. But really, wouldn't most days? It's not like I live with an empty fridge that needs to be constantly filled.
Quite the opposite.
To those out there who have expressed concern that I will go undernourished - fear not! If I had a functioning camera, I would take a picture to show you how jam-packed my fridge and freezer both are. If I don't get too tired of the monotony, suppers for the next 7 days can easily be filled with salmon burgers, pork chops, and grilled cheese sandwiches.
I was tempted to buy food today because, obviously. That is what I do. I think I need to make cookies or something (yes, I think I have all the ingredients - flour, etc.) to satiate my several-times-a-day urge to buy chocolate bars (which are banned anyway, according to my Detox regulations).
|Sadly, I don't have ingredients to make homemade chocolate bars this week.|
And it turns out that eating a boiled egg is an OK lunch, when you put some salt, pepper and paprika on it. (I don't have mayo, and hence could not make egg salad as per my plan -- although apparently you can make your own mayo? Need to look into this...)
So, this mini-challenge is going totally fine so far. I think I might make some sort of quiche too, as apparently I have some frozen pie shells, along with both eggs and cheese. Wonder if some of my frozen veg could be included? I have a package of frozen spinach.

In other news, I had to buy some clothes today. You guys, for real this time. I have a job interview next week and none of my grown-up clothes fit properly. But I shopped the sales, and got a dark brown blazer ($40) and dark brown trousers ($40) and a kind of ruffley shirt ($30). When I started thinking, "Oh, I should buy shoes to match too! And nail polish!" I turned on the Detox Brain and stopped myself. Am pretty sure I have dressy shoes around here somewhere... I think?
