My Frugal Ways this Past week,What Was On the Dinner Table and My Goals for the Week 8/28/16!

Canned 4 pints of Salsa -One 1/2 pint of soup starter

I made 2  and 1/2 pints of salsa and a pint of soup starter.  I have been canning the juice that is left over from making the salsa for a soup starter.   Hope to make more salsa soon but there may not be enough tomatoes in the garden.  

Home made pizza hot pockets (freezer meals) Vickie's Kitchen and Garden

I made some Pizza Hot Pockets for freezer meals.

I made some pickled eggs using the pickle juice from the red hot jar.

Accepted clothes for the grand baby from a neighbor.

Free Ice Cream!  On the way home from the fair we went by an ice cream shop.  Their sign in the front of their building had our last name.  It said "if this is your name stop by for a free ice cream." An ice cream never tasted so good!

Tree house in Nature preserve

Went to see a tree house (free) at our local nature preserve.  The show Tree House Masters built it for them.

Took picnic lunch (sandwiches and drinks) when we took kids to the park.

Menu:  What was on the table last week:

Monday          Homemade pizza pockets

Tuesday          Grilled chicken (frozen meal),  Biscuits, and  green beans (bought from a neighbor),

Wednesday     Tacos and Burritos

Thursday        Hot wings and baked potatoes 

Friday            Homemade Hamburgers and Potato chips

On a cooler night have a bonfire with the grand kids.  We have wanted one all summer
 (we were going to do this last night but it rained- I can't complain about rain at all).


Write a book review.
