Weekend Update

Last weekend, we were supposed to travel to NJ to visit some family but due to my falling sick (again!!), we had to cancel the trip and stayed at home for the most part. 

I recently read some quick and on-the-go breakfast ideas and came across the idea of making muffin omelettes. I adapted the recipe from here to use carrots, red peppers and no meat and I skipped on the cheese since I didn't have any cheddar cheese at home. The liquid was a little lumpy once mixed with the flour but I made them anyway. When they came out of the oven, they looked good but for some reason, in about 15 mins, they just completely lost all their ooph and sunk in. They tasted ok but I don't think I'll make it again.

I've always had sleep issues with my daughter and for the last several weeks, whenever she naps at home over the weekends, she wakes up in 45 mins to an hour and starts screaming and being extremely fussy. It takes a while to get her to a good mood.

One of the days this weekend when she woke up, I picked her up and just held her and rocked her a bit and she fell asleep in my arms. It had been at least 3-4 months since she went to sleep in my arms and I relished the feeling and realized I had missed it. She slept for a good half-hour and I just enjoyed the feeling. And when I finally woke her up, she was in a good mood.

I gave my daughter a new puzzle game and was quite impressed with the quality of the pieces. It was a Ravensburger Garden Animals My First Puzzle, 2-Piece and she really liked it. It was easy for her to put together and easy to store in the box it came in.

Some iPhone tips you didn't know about

I came across an article recently about some iPhone tips and it had some suggestions which I didn't know about even after years of using iPhone.

Here are those suggestions:Invert display colors for easy night viewing. o to Settings --> General --> Accessibility --> Invert Colors to change your nighttime display.Slide texts left to read timestamp. A few days ago, I found myself trying to find out when a message was sent in iMessages and was not able to figure it out. This is useful info for the future.Ask Siri what's happening on Twitter. For some reason, I've not used Siri much beyond basic stuff like setting a reminder or an alarm. I should start using it more.Putting the phone in airplane mode to charge faster. I don't know if this really works but something i need to try

Saving money on groceries

Recently, we had some family visiting for a few months and as a result, our grocery bills shot through the roof. It's back to being just us again and I'm trying to reduce our grocery expenses.

One of the reasons our grocery bill gets so high is we buy a lot of groceries at the local indian grocery store and it tends to be the biggest part of our grocery budget.

Use a discount grocer or warehouse club - options for me are Trader Joe's, Market Basket, Costco, ALDI's and Sam's ClubChoose your primary store and learn its layoutWatch the store flyer each weekMake a meal plan and grocery listStock up big on sale-priced non perishablesListen to uptempo music while you shopFigure out the price per unit when buying a specific non perishable itemShop your pantry - meal plan around the items in stock in your pantry So I'm going to start meal planning soon and use the rest of these tips to reduce our grocery costs every month. I will keep updating on how that's going.
