I hope you all have a lovely day with the ones you love.
It is still very cold here in mid Indiana. It is 15* right now, warming to the 20's today! We are supposed to get snow today as well. We have a few little flakes falling now - with maybe 2" - 3" before the end of the day. Warming a little this week. What is the weather like in your neck of the woods?
It's been another very quiet week at our house - just the way I like it.
My fugal accomplishments this week:
- Renewed library books on-line
- I did run out and drop off paper recycle at the PO up the street
- NO grocery shopping at all this week
- DID SHOP from the basement/pantry
- Mailed in a rebate form from Menards visit of last week ($5.94 rebate)
- Cooked from scratch and all meals from home
I made a beef roast and just enough veggies for a meal the first of the week. I then used the leftover meat and broth and made a nice pot of beef/noodle/veggie soup. That was a couple good meals. I made open faced (broiled) corned beef/kraut sandwiches (corned beef from new years). We had bean soup and sausage sandwiches one night. Shoot, we ate off the dump cake I made last Sunday for several days. It was so good, it tasted kind of like a crisp.
Today I have taco chicken going in the crockpot. Tonight we will have it over rice - then during the week it will be reinvented into different meals.
I have been craving banana pudding for a while. Only problem is I have no fresh bananas, nor no vanilla wafers. I do have graham crackers, and pineapple chunks (home canned), and sugar free banana pudding. So today, I making my own version of "banana pudding". I think drizzling it with chocolate syrup will kind of make it like a banana split 'taste'! We'll see. YUM
How has your week been? What did you all do to stay on the frugal train?
Check in and say hi - we all love to hear from all our on-line friends!!!!!!
God bless you in the coming week.
