My last night in San Francisco and was I ever tempted
to stop at a corner store and buy a nice bunch of greens, maybe a piece of fruit, maybe a container of creamy Strauss whole milk yogurt and then the little (or big) voice said "Make It Work" - if I am seriously going to stick to a budget of $1,000 a month - it is not going to cut it, the stopping and buying anything on a whim. Hmm "Make it Work" an hour later: brown rice, mustard stems sauteed in combo olive oil/butter, smothered with a cup of strawberries I had slightly mashed and frozen months ago (defrosted of course). The wierd thing was the combo actually worked and I got more practice at changing my ideas of what constitutes a good meal AND no money left my hands today.
