In the theme of gas/ride sharing, I asked a friend to go with me to see a horse tomorrow. She agreed, and then later asked if I'd mind if she drove because her truck has barely been driven this year and she feels it needs to run a tank of gas through it. Mind?! I'm buying her lunch which seems like a great tradeoff.
After tomorrow's adventure, I'm going to Alberta to look at more horses, so the cooler is getting packed up. Once I get over the border I'll buy some fruits/veggies at the grocery store and hopefully not need to eat out between what I bring and the hotel breakfasts. Unfortunately I withdrew Canadian funds a couple days ago and now see the exchange rate is even more favorable. Instead of buying a block of ice, I'm freezing a gallon of water. Cheaper, less messy and then I can drink it when it thaws.
Yesterday I made a big pot of gumbo with marked-down chicken drumsticks and the following ingredients from the garden: okra, onions, peppers, serranos, garlic, tomatoes, corn. Used half the package of andouille and saved the other half for the next pot. Took the leftovers for lunch today.
Grabbed a bag of feed that was marked 15% off because it had a taped up hole, but didn't seem to be missing any feed.
