Budget: Eating in day 1: My favorite cold ramen

0

Ok, yesterday, I admit I failed starting my 7-day challenge.  The casino emailed me a one-day only 8/30/17 food voucher for $20 so I had to!  It was free food.  So off Carol and I went.  I made the mistake of ordering a prickly pear margarita $10 which came with a free mesquite pork taco and was informed the voucher does not cover alcohol at checkout.  Sooo darn!

Looks like my $5 a day for food was blown.  So I put in $6 on a slot machine and got back $86.  Ok, this I can work with, lol.  I gave Carol a little for gas.  So I made a profit on the food.  Carol and I ran out (well, hobbled as she needs a cane but you get the idea) before I put the money back in. I think I will put $50 towards repainting the kitchen since I’ll be spending some time there anyways.

So back to my 7-day challenge of eating in.  Starting over today. Geez, this reminds me of a diet. Being good, looking to see what I have.  I found my favorite cold ramen in the pantry.  Oh good, I can boil water, lol. I love semi-instant food.

In Japan, I got introduced to a favorite summer food: cold ramen. Of course, the restaurant makes it much prettier than Continue reading Budget: Eating in day 1: My favorite cold ramen
