Hunkering down for a wave of cold air to arrive tomorrow, and in preparation I'm making a batch of stew. I think also I'll make some soup.

My Frugal February passed and it was indeed a month of few purchases. I do have things I have to buy so today I made a run to the drug store, to Tractor Supply for dog food, and a couple of other stops. When I tried this last time I found that it's difficult to keep up the practice every month, because you tend to set yourself up to fail, but when you've had a frugal month it means you enter the next one with the goal of preserving the savings that you managed previously. Toward that end, my shopping today was primarily in the bulk food section of the neighborhood Winco where I pay with cash, not a card.

I stopped by a friend's house, and the smell of fresh baked bread met me at the door and I immediately resolved to make some of my dinner rolls; I couldn't eat a whole batch while they're fresh but they freeze well.
