My Frugal Ways this Past week,What Was On the Dinner Table and My Goals for the Week 8/20/16!





We bought peaches at the Farmers Market this past week. I ended up with 28 pint jars of peaches. We saved a couple of dollars a quart by buying and canning them. 

I completed the Kroger survey that was at the bottom of my receipt for more fuel points. 



We went on a $5.00 date night!  We enjoyed coffee and doughnuts on the Tim Horton's patio while we watched old cars go by.  I found out from the woman in front of us that Tim Horton's has a senior citizen discount!  


We took the grand kids to Stepping Stone Falls (free).   

I was gifted some jalapeno's this past week from a friend.  I hope to use them in salsa this week.  



Menu-What was on the Dinner Table

Monday       Chicken and Dumplings -made with leftover grilled chicken

Tuesday       Hamburger Steak, Potato salad made with leftover mashed potatoes, Green beans (leftover), Fried cabbage
