No Spend Month
How our family is spending as little as possible this month.
We are spending $20 a week on food, fun, and frivolities.We're using up what we have, buying a few essentials, and living well.
Here are the glory details of Week Two!
Yes, glory details. Because I'm (still) clever.

Two Ingredient Banana Coconut Cookies.
You guessed it! They have banana and coconut in them.
I've seen a lot of "two ingredient" recipes (or three or whatever) that include "box of cake mix" or "can of soup" as one of the ingredients. Nope, not these. They have two real foods - Bananas and Coconut. That's it.
Turns out they make a lovely cookie.
Gluten-free, grain-free, egg-free, nut-free, soy-free, vegan, "paleo," and more. Unless you're avoiding coconut or bananas, you can eat these!

Creating is my passion, my sanity, my sense of being "up to something", my way of contributing a little bit. I always have a few projects going, many left to the side for months or even years before I pick up the best and carry on. Here's some of what I'm working on this week:
Making tasty snacks from ingredients at the back of the cupboards - Apricot Coconut Macaroons - dried coconut, eggs, honey, chopped apricots.
