And our sympathies to the Chicago Reader......

So, Raye will not be begging again for two weeks, right?  Wrong.  She had Hobie do it for her.  See previous post.

The $80.00 arrived yesterday. And I did exactly what you said, :"Please use this for groceries."
It's amazing how expensive food is getting. Everything I bought was on sale or 10 for $10.00. I spent $76.00 and brought home 4 bags. Sigh!! I bought the staples, bread, milk and eggs.. plus raisin bran. I practically live on raisin bran. It's the only dry cereal that I like. I've been this way since I can remember.
I also bought oatmeal and pancake mix. I should be set for a while. I do have a few items on the pantry shelves and if I can cleverly combine things, I should be able to make some corn fritattas... these are quiches without crusts. Once I bake them, I can cut them into pieces and freeze them.
I've never thought I was much of a cook, but because I either cook or go hungry, I've discovered that I actually can cook things that are quite tasty. I have the basic items, flour, sugar and oil. I bought those last shopping trip.
I made a lemon cake from scratch and I made lemon pudding to go on top instead of frosting. It was delicious. I still have some in the freezer. Both the cake and the pudding were from scratch.
What I have done a few times is put the food I have in the pantry in to a search engine and find recipes for what I have on hand. It's a good thing I don't eat meat. If I did I would never afford to eat.
Thank you again Chicago reader for the $80.00. I figure that what I bought should last me at least two weeks, hopefully longer. Bless you for hearing my plea.
Many thanks and many blessings are flowing your way!!


  1. Right, greedy Rayelan has an income of $7000 per month, yet she cannot afford to eat. A picture of her whale like physique
    says she is a liar.

    1. Sskids, at the very least, she lies. The question is, as with all of her kind, does she know there is a difference between the truth and a lie.

  2. Income in the mail and in cash, that is the best kind because I am sure she does not report that cash to the taxing authorities. She is probably angling for more such cash donations, hurry Rubes send Raye 5 twenty dollar bills and you might get acknowledged in a post too!
