For lunch I had some frozen breaded shrimp. I spent most of the morning talking to my mom and sort of ran out of time to think of anything.
For dinner I made these German sausages I got from Aldi, marinated some beets and made the other kind of German potato salad, the kind with apple. It was surprisingly tasty!
Next week Aldi has dog supplies on sale so I think I will do our grocery shopping then. It would only be three weeks but we are a little low on some items (carrots!) and we need a new container for dog food. Our freezer is still very full and I’m a little hesitant to use too much in it because I think things will get worse in the fall so it will be nice to get some fresh food.
I’ve really been stretching out the meat and other ingredients the last couple weeks so I actually ended up freezing more from the shop on June 17th than I expected. Aldi ads come out on Wednesday so that is my preferred shopping day and the following Wednesday is our eye appointment so I can’t shop then (dilated eyes) and the week after that is my birthday and Matt’s off the whole week so I don’t want to shop then either. My guess is I will either do a online order to fill in or we will go to a specialty store at some point around then.
Non-food related activities:
We’ve been talking about getting a second dog after Pippi suddenly died. I saw one that looks nice at a rescue and put in an application. Fingers crossed! It’s a bit of a drive but we’d only have to do it once.
I really spent most of the day talking to my mom about her medical care and books.
I listened to more You’re Wrong About. I can’t wait for Candace Opper’s memoir to come out. I find her fascinating. I had read an essay of hers about her fixation on a classmates suicide so I was excited to see she was the guest on the Kurt Cobain episode.
Trying to knock out at least one more book before the end of July!
We watched Popeye on Netflix DVD. What a weird movie. Oooooh. Ooooooh.
