Day 1: Today is the first day of the 21 Dollar Challenge!
I baked a loaf of bread last night, thanks to my wonderful friends Michelle and Chris Oorschot, who gave me some fresh yeast :-) Don't you just looovvveee the smell of bread baking?? Its just a delicious smell! Anyway that loaf of bread got devoured at connect group this morning, so I'm about to bake another loaf, Not sure how long it will last us... that's another thing about fresh bread, it just tastes soooooo yummy!
Today has been easy as I have had no temptations to spend money, but tomorrow is going to be a hard one... I work every Tuesday and normally treat myself to a Latte and a pastry, but if I do that, that's using 30% of my weeks food budget! so I am going to take one of those coffee sachets and a piece of home made chocolate cake with me instead! MMMM home made chocolate cake YUMMMMM.... I really do enjoy baking, I think this will be my favorite part of the challenge, having an excuse to make yummy home baked goods! Obviously I cant go making fancy cakes with 100 different ingredients, but if I use what I have available I still can make some pretty delicious snacks!
27 days to go!
