Green Meat Thursday

No, I don't actually eat green meat. That's just nasty.

When Ed was in Biloxi with the Air Force for 6 months, he and the guys would shop at Albertson's on Thursday specifically to purchase "green meat." "Green meat" is meat that has an espired SELL BY date. The guys could save money from their per diem by purchasing cheap food and making themselves. The money they saved went into their checking accounts and their wives were free to buy non-green meat with it.

Since then, any marked down meat has been dubbed "green meat."

I happened to stumble upon a bunch of "green meat" today, so I loaded up considering Ed's current employment status.

In addition to doing my weekly grocery shopping, I've also managed to wash three loads of laundry (it's not put away yet), clean out the fridge and freezer, vacuum and feed Eddie and myself breakfast and lunch.

I still have work to do though. I have to balance the checkbook, dust, put away the laundry (my least favorite chore), clean both bathrooms and figure out what I am doing for a cake for tomorrow night. Will I bake the cake myself or will I buy one? So...

Back to work it is.
