Spending Freeze: Day 18

DAY 18: $894.33 / -0.2 lbs

My bread worked out! 

No Knead Bread Success!

I know it kind of looks like a fortune cookie.  But I don’t care because it turned out awesome and tasty and very artisan-y!  The hubs said this was his favorite and exactly what he’s been needing. I feel like such a little homemaker. Lol


Breakfast:  Coffee.  Then 4 hours later the hubs made mini (I swear that’s just a really tiny plate in the picture) Chicken Quesadillas from the new batch of Slow Cooker Chicken that had just finished. Still the first meal of the day and I plan on doing a lot more eating, so I’m going to count this as breakfast.

Lunch:  Asiago Chicken & Onion Paninis with my new homemade bread!  OMG.  So good.   

Dinner:  We’re staying up late tonight and (since our hunger times seem to be off today) are going to do late night Hibachi Grill!  We’ve done it a few times before and it’s always fun.  No, we don’t have a hibachi grill (I wish!).  We ridiculously use an electric griddle and it’s just as entertaining…just in a very “we’re anything but professionals” kind of way.  I think all that matters in the end is that there is meat, veggies, noodles, and yum yum sauce tonight.  If it weren’t for the freeze there would be other elements, but of course we are improvising.  No pics tonight since I’m posting before we cook.   


Couponing was awesome today!  Oh how I’ve missed “buying” things.  I was tempted to bend the rules a little bit, but sustained.  Here are all of the freebies I got:


I thought I was going to get a free RedBox movie as well, but my codes didn’t work.  So in the end I got over $25 worth of products for FREE!  

I see a lot of flatbread pizzas in my future…


I buttoned my jeans today!  I know this sounds weird, but I’ve been up a size for a while and it was hard to believe that some of my “normal” jeans didn’t fit.  I try them on every once in a while even though my weight hasn’t changed much, but it’s usually disappointment.  Not today!  I think the whole Body Revolution workout plan is actually working, just not on the scale yet.  Other clothes are fitting a little differently too and I think my face is slimming up ever so slightly.  It’s enough to keep me going.  2 weeks down now and REST DAY tomorrow!! Hope you are out enjoying your weekend!
