  1. We have had some strange meals this week. Kids came in from out of town on Sunday and then we just had too much to eat for days. Last night we had oatmeal and tonight oven ff and fruit. I still feel overfed. There are still baked goods and other foods to be eaten. Bleh! Tomorrow I just need a huge green salad to set me right.

    1. We have a pile of candy that was given to us that most of it will go in the freezer for later.

  2. We too are eating left overs and trying to clean out the fridge. I have so much cheese leftover so we will be eating many cheese based dishes.

    1. we have so much cheese between frig and freezer We just decided to have cheese, crackers and veggies for lunches or late night snacks. That has been working decent.

  3. I like to do a low spend month in January, as well.
