My last shower cap lasted over 5 years. This one? It's been just over a year and the elastic is all stretched out. Who knew Dollar Tree would stoop to selling cheap, shoddy products? Hmmph.

I had a simple, delicious meal planned for last night. Baked ham, sweet potatoes, English peas. Sounds good, right? Then I got home and realized I hadn’t thawed the ham, which is not a huge problem. Then I realized the sweet potatoes were starting to go bad! So I had to rethink this entire meal. I peeled the sweet potatoes and diced them, avoiding the icky spots. I had half an onion left over, that got diced as well. A sort-of-mangy bell pepper, some fresh broccoli that still looked good, and a handful of those English peas, and we’re in business. I sautéed the veg with some madras curry powder, added some tomato sauce, dumped the whole thing over rice, and it was delicious!

Remember how I started this blog to save money/make money so I could travel more? Well, the first planned trip will be upon us soon. We’re going to New Orleans for a wedding next month. I have the money for that trip set aside, now I just need to call and make my hotel reservation. Regarding my vacation, my hosts had asked that I come in May. It was just too soon. I don’t have enough money saved for that yet, I could get there but I’d have no funds to go and enjoy myself. So I asked if we could postpone this til September and they said that was fine. Yay! That gives me enough time to do this up right.
