Cleaning Out the Freezer

It has been 1 whole week in my Only The Essentials Challenge and I have made big progress in eating what I have! I have been tempted to buy food, but so far I have resisted! This week’s focus is going to be eating what we have in the freezer! We have tons of stuff stocked up in there and it’s time to eat it!

Last night fiancé and I had plans to go out for a date night. We thought about a few places we wanted to go, but it was cold and rainy last night so we decided to stay in and save a few bucks! I decided to pull out a frozen pizza from the fridge for an easy Saturday night dinner. Not the healthiest option in the world, but  I am a firm believer in adding pizza to any diet once in a while!

I added some pepperoni and onions that I had in the fridge to the pizza and it came out looking all pretty and delicious.

Saturday night pizza obviously has to be enjoyed with a nice glass of red wine. Yum!

Remember this puzzle from a while back? Fiancé is almost finished with it! Horry! Get it off my floor! haha.

He also brought me home a nice piece of chocolate that I enjoyed as my post dinner dessert! I pretty much always have to cleanse my palate with chocolate after any meal!

Do you cleanse your palate?

I also got to open my first Christmas present that came in the mail today. It was wrapped up all pretty!

I may have had myself a little bath last night with lots of bubbles thanks to this little luxury bag. It was lovely. Thanks Gen!

Are you a bath lover? What’s your favorite way to take a bath?

In other random news, I was tweeting this weekend that fiance brought home a random flat screen computer monitor. At least I can now hook up my mini laptop to a bigger screen!
