I figured that, since it *is* my birthday month, I deserve to treat myself. Today, I bought these from the site I linked to earlier:
Cute Belt in Orange
Cute Wallet in Purple
Love me. Love my things made out of recycle juice boxes!
AND, I decided to make pasta salad for Meat-Free Monday. AND, buy myself some nice chocolate. Even though I have no money left in the budget.
That's what savings are for :-)
The pasta salad consists of tri-color twisty pasta, crumbled feta, kalamata olives, and grape tomatoes, with a dressing made from lemon, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper, and basil. Hopefully, it will be YUM.
Photo forthcoming (after it chills for a bit in the fridge):
Verdict: Hm. It needs to be colder, and probably could use a bit less feta. but other than that. not bad.
