A July power up and the best omelet I ever had

George and I love to cook together. Making and even growing great food and eating meals together is something that has made life rich and full. It’s actually put more money in our account as we rarely eat out now.

We had a crazy day last week with no time to cook. We did have some leftover unsauced pulled pork BBQ in the fridge that he got at Whole Foods. Sometimes he has to travel to Chattanooga for work related events. Last week was one of those times so he swung by for lunch.

That night, he sliced an onion and tossed it in a skiller with the pork and a little extra virgin olive oil. After the onions were cooked, all of that came out and he made two omelets using the cooked pork/onion mixture as the filling.

The smokey flavor of the pork came through and the onions were perfect with it. It was the best omelet I’ve ever eaten and I’m still thinking about it days later.

Today’s power up is $4.14 leftover after paying for our internet/cable service. I know I say this over and over but these power ups are the back bone of our MG account’s growth. Without these, we wouldn’t even have the big deposits. Before we figured out how to gameify this, the big windfalls went to make up the shortfalls we constantly made. Because everything was getting made up eventually, we thought we were good money managers.

Stay on top of it. It’s a lot easier to say no to small things than to face saying no to a something like a rent or mortgage payment. Keep bossing your money around with as much gusto as you boss your character around in your favorite game.
