Catching up: Smoky Ketchup, Meatless Tuesday, Consignment shopping

Made this Smoky Ketchup the other day to eat with some fried oysters. After this shot, my camera battery petered out, so I don't have any proof that we ate oysters, mashed sweet potatoes and sautéed kale. ;)
Didn't manage to eat meatless on Monday, but made up for it on Tuesday. Made our spaghetti with Morningstar Farms mock meat crumbles. Hubby's not crazy about them, so I won't buy them again...once we use up what I've already bought. Hubby didn't complain too much about them this time. I've learned not to add them to the sauce until we plate our food. And of course, a little wine always helps anything to wash down. ;)
Went consignment shopping today to find a highchair for Grandbaby to use when at our house. We did end up finding one to suit our needs, at much less than retail prices. According to Living Greener, buying used "reduces the need to manufacture new materials, meaning less energy is consumed and less water is wasted in the process." Gotta love that!
Must end with this gratuitous pic of the pizza we ate last Friday. My fav E.B.A. pizza is from a locally owned and operated joint, 54 Pizza Express. Though there are lots of reasons to buy local, YUMMY FOOD is my favorite reason to keep going local. BTW, EBA is "everything but anchovies." YUM!
Soo excited that tomorrow is Friday. Maybe another EBA pizza is in my future? One can always hope!
   We have some out of town friends who have a family tradition of inviting friends over for pizza on Fridays. I LOVE that! Another friend makes enough chili for a crowd almost every Friday night during the cooler months. Before I became protective of my Friday nights--preferring to stay in--we ate many a bowl of his Friday night chili.
   Any similar food traditions going on in your neck of the woods?

I always think it would be a good idea to have a tradition like that, something that brings my friends together. The problem is that I have such a tiny apartment that I'm not sure how it would work out! I'm also a bit of a recluse sometimes...a habit I keep meaning to break :)

Hubby and I ALWAYS have pizza on Thursday nights---it's our date night and in four years of eating Marty's Pizza pizza, we've never gotten tired of it!

Here in Michigan, they've BANNED the sale of used strollers, car seats and I believe cribs for safety reasons. What a shame--makes me sick to think of all the stuff headed to the landfills, and also all the young people trying to find economical ways to get baby equipment. I guess I see the point, but my gosh........

I'm in-love with the idea that you bought a gently used high-chair for your little one. Buying anything new these days causes me great pain. Bravo to you!

I love consignment shopping. And while I do care about the environment, I do it mostly for the $$ saved.
