Week 4 Savings, a Recipe and new glasses

I added $15.00 to my stash this week as I only went out to eat one time for lunch.  I think if I have extra money then it needs to go into this savings.  My total at Week 4 should be $10.00 but with adding extra I'm now at $44.00!!!  I hope my enthusiasm continues as I look forward to putting money in there every week. 
This is what I had for lunch today!  I went to a place and was served Birdseed Pasta Salad a couple of years ago and came home and tried to figure it out.  I use whatever pasta I have, cut up broccoli, cauliflower, sweet onion, dried cranberries, sunflower seeds and I use Poppy seed Dressing.  This is a sweet pasta salad because of the dressing but very good.  On just this serving I added some Feta cheese.  If I had had some ripe tomatoes I would have added that to my portion.  The tomatoes get so watery if left in the salad that I like to add them per serving but if you're going to eat it all then add them in!  I would have added cucumbers if I had those.  I think this is a salad that you can add what's on hand and it's yummy!

I cooked the rest of the broccoli and cauliflower as I'm going to add that to some chicken I made in the crock pot yesterday and I baked some rice so I can have some good lunches this week and add more to the savings!!!

I don't normally put my photo up anywhere as I look so old for 31 but I have new glasses and wanted to share them.  My one eye had changed 4 levels!!  I just thought I was going blind as I was not seeing well with my glasses.  Very happy to know that my eyes are okay.
I'm still working on projects after the Friday Nite Sew-In.  I'm working on making the different Make It/Take It things I want to do for our sewing group.  I'll show you some of the things soon but you saw the Christmas Tree hanging already.  I had soooo much fun making that!!!
It rained here last night so I didn't have to water but it's hot outside. 
Have a wonderful day/evening!!!
