The Frugal Girl

More on that don’t-want-to-cook-dinner thing in item #5. I used up two extra egg yolks. A dinner recipe called for two egg whites, which meant I had two yolks sitting in my fridge. So, I added them into my scrambled eggs, which were part of my lunch plate the other day: 2.

A few thoughts on turning 40

The Frugal Girl

Delayed a bit, since I turned 40 at the end of April. But then again, I was a little busy on the weekend of my birthday. Just FYI: this post is going to have nothing to do with frugality and a whole lot more to do with navel-gazing. Because this is my blog and I will navel-gaze if I want to!).

My overnight was fantastic. I went to a local hotel overnight by myself on Friday, and it was fantastic. I took a walk in a local free park at sunset. I ate outside at a little Mediterranean restaurant. I went to bed early. Because I am a party animal! I ate breakfast all by myself.
