This week, I harvested sage, thyme, rosemary, lavendar, and mint. I usually just hang them to dry but the sage wasn't drying in my kitchen (too much humidity) so I used the dehydrator. I also save the dried stalks of the herbs to throw in the fire in the fireplace this winter. Smells very nice.
We picked a big mess of green beans from our garden. Green beans are so delicious fresh. We also had some sliced tomatoes and cucumbers that we picked!
We went to a subdivision sale on Thursday and bought a lot of clothes for the grand kids. We will go back this morning to see what we can find.
Eating out and buying drinks, coffee:
We now go to Meijer's gas station to buy our drinks when we are out and about. Mcdonald's had gotten way too high. This morning I got my 44 oz diet coke for free with my mperks and he loves their coffee. So, we were good for $1.05 (including tax).
I'm not going to lie, we eat out usually once a week. We get it to go unless it's a special occasion. Here are the ways we found to save while giving me a break for the last three weeks:
We went to the Mennonite Store and they have a deli inside where they make fried and baked chicken. We both got a meal of 2 pcs of chicken and two sides for $7.99. We stopped at a roadside park and had a picnic.
Famous Dave's had a special one week for $5.00 you could get a BBQ beef sandwich and a side. It was very good.
I bought 3 Chicken parmeson Meijer Market dinners for $4.50 a piece through flash food app (half price). Three minutes to warm up in the microwave and we were good. If you haven't used flash food before if you spend over $15 you can get a $3.00 credit if you use code VICK36PZH.
