I wanted to start yesterday, but my husband came in with Subway. Therefore, today will be Day One. He didn't get the picture about not bringing food home. He was trying to help.
Refer to the challenge here.
As part of my challenge, I am attempting new recipes. Tonight, I made Poppy Seed Spaghetti using real butter.

The hubby asked for bratwurst so there was not a whole lot of imagination to that. Peppers and onions fried up. I made homemade oven fries. I made Ranch Bean Dip for the fries and for chips for tomorrow.
http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Ranch-Bean-Dip/Detail.aspx< I used Southwestern Ranch Dip instead of sour cream and ranch seasoning mix. It was what I had on hand. That was a lot of cheese.
I never thought that I would say "too much cheese" in my life. I will cut it in half for the next time that I make it.
Today was also grocery shopping day. I am exhausted after not sleeping well last night and running around. I am also purging the house while doing this challenge. I dropped off about 150 books to the library. I actually have shelves to dust instead of
dusty books. Funny story, the reason that I did not sleep well is because my darling hubby rolled over on top of me and bit my neck. It hurt too. He just bit my neck and ear. Maybe he was trying to get frisky. He was still asleep. Alledgedly, he doesn't remember
anything. I ended up on the couch, because he took over the whole bed. A couple of hours later, he woke me up to ask me why I was sleeping on the couch. Really? Let a chic sleep.
