My Frugal Ways this Past week,What Was On the Dinner Table and My Goals for the Week 10/16/16!

We took a trip up north to see the Fall colors.  Although the leaves were pretty they were not quite at peak yet (still a lot of green). We had a lot of fun and loved it.  We went on a ski lift for $5.00 a piece up a mountain to see the view better.  

Before we left  I made breakfast of french toast, fried bologna (husband), and one of the cans of cinnamon rolls I bought earlier in the week at Meijers. 

We also took apples, bananas, water, pop, and my homemade trail mix along on our trip for snacks.  I followed this recipe but I omitted the pumpkin seeds and cranberries (it's soo good).  

Faced with a potential freeze I picked the last of the tomatoes and peppers the night before. I wrapped up the green tomatoes in newspaper so they will ripen slowly.  I also covered up my flowers with a sheet so they will live a little while longer (update they survived and the greens are still growing great).

I ran out to the recycle bin just before the trash men came and dug out resturant coupons that I had ditched.  Yep, that was me in my housecoat.
