All You Challenge Day 3, free cone, netipot

Not much to report today. I'm working three 12 hours nights in a row this week. I realize this is normal for some of you, but since I generally work part time, by the time Thursday morning rolls around, I'll be very tired.

Just as an aside: What do teens do all summer when they only get 1 hour of TV and/or computer a day?? Abby is making minature dolls out of clay and the boys are creating landscapes for their game. They also read A LOT!

One nice little freebie for a Nestle Drumstick ice cream cone (yummm....I really like these!):

And if you haven't received your free netipot yet, the promotion is running again:

I will be updating daily on the All You Grocery Challenge, which runs June19- July16. The Challenge: spend only $25 per person per week or less ($150.00 for my crew) to feed your family, including eating out...but do so in a creative, healthy way. An * denotes our own garden food; (parentheses indicate healthy changes.) Winner gets $1000 and a write up in ALL YOU magazine!

Day 3:

When mama's working in the summer,  Mike and the kids are on there own for breakfast and lunch, so....

Breakfast: cold cereal (including homemade granola) and other generic cereals like raisin bran, cornflakes and cheerios, boiled eggs, OJ, milk
Lunch: ham and cheese sandwiches, leftovers, fruit
Dinner: steamed tilapia with garlic, green beans*, cucumbers*, brown rice, homemade pound cake with strawberries, milk

This photo is of today's garden harvest: cukes, red cabbage and green beans. We do not have a huge garden, and we pretty much eat whatever it produces on a daily basis. I learned long ago that making a menu and then buying the food is not the best way to save money in the long run. I check my freezer and pantry, then buy (or pick from the garden) what's on sale, and then make a menu from that!
