My Frugal Ways this Past week,What Was On the Dinner Table and My Goals for the Week 8/14/16


My Frugal Ways this Past week-Cleaned the pantry shelf


Cleaned my canning pantry and counted how much I had left from canning last year.  Because of the drought this years garden didn't produce as well as last years.

I grilled on Monday and cooked three meals ahead.

I won $25.00 gift certificate from the library!  I participated in the Reading Challenge for Adults program  and  put my name in a drawing once a week.  Last week I was also gifted a $5 McDonald's card just for participating.

Completed the Kroger survey for more fuel points.

We went to some garage sales and found some great deals.   Including a commercial Kuerig for $25.00, more books, and some clothes for me.

Used my $10 off $10 coupon at JCPenny and bought a new shirt for me for $1.92.  


Menu-What was on the Dinner Table

Monday        Grilled Rosemary Pork Chops, Green beans, creamy coleslaw, tomatoes, and cukes.

Tuesday        Hot dogs

Wednesday   Sausage and sauerkraut

Thursday       Beef Stew (made with vegetables out of the garden)

Friday            Husband cooked -Out to eat

Saturday        Hamburgers on the Grill

Sunday          Grilled Chicken, green beans from the garden, tomatoes, cornbread, and the best ever chocolate cake for dessert (not my recipe).   


choclate cake for Sunday Dinner

Please excuse the somewhat blurry picture I'm trying to hide the fact there is a big crack on the other side. It's resting on two heavy duty paper plates. I loved reading Rhonda's blog post how she uses paper plates for gatherings and decided that was a good thing.    


Mess made with chocolate cake

Plus I'm exhausted after I had to clean up my mess this morning. Tip: Just be careful and add the hot water slowly ...umm like the recipe says!
