It must be Thursday...the fridge is looking bare

It must be Thursday because the fridge is looking bare.

It happens just about every week at this time. The fridge starts looking sparse. I just used up a bunch of this and that to make lasagna for supper tonight. We had sloppy chicks (sloppy joes made with ground chicken) left over so I added some cottage cheese, Parmesan cheese, Greek yogurt and tomato sauce and cooked the few lasagna noodles and made a dish of lasagna. I shredded mozzarella cheese to put on top. Not a super expensive dish to make and it should be filling as well.

We had meatloaf the other night and we had enough for sandwiches yesterday. I think we have enough for lunch tomorrow as well. We have had leftover turkey from the other night we've enjoyed as sandwiches too.

We met with our financial advisor the other day and we are scheduled for another meeting so we can go over paperwork and stuff. He wants a written budget from us. I wonder what he will think when he sees ours. We eat out some, but nothing like most. My grocery budget seems high, but then again, we eat at home a lot and I use lots of fresh vegetables and fruits. The garden has helped this summer.

    I think it's brilliant to bring an up-to-date budget to your meeting with the advisor. A mid year review can reveal opportunities for small adjustments to allocations so that all investment streams mesh as best possible. I wonder where advisors are moving client since governments are suggesting interest rates need to increase.

    Our advisor said from what he has studied, the Feds don't want to raise interest rates because they want Americans to borrow money and spend, not save. If that is the case, it is scary.
