What can I say about the weather this past week in our part of Michigan, except for it was wild. We had a wonderful 2 hours of 60 degree weather on Thursday, then the wind picked up and the tornado sirens went off. They said that we ended up with 4 tornadoes touching down in our area. There were many homes and barns that were damaged or completely destroyed. I haven't heard of any serious injuries so we are blessed that way for sure.
Then a cold snap blew in and we ended up with snow on the ground yesterday morning. Okay, I've changed my mind "crazy" is a great word.
So far this morning all is calm and the corned beef is in the crock pot. I hope you have a great St. Patrick's day.
Here are the ways I've saved this past week:
Our daughter gave us a box of food she wouldn't use before it went bad. It was full of potatoes, onions, mozzarella cheese, garlic, and carrots. I used the potatoes. onion, and garlic to make fried potatoes and used the mozzarella to make fat head rolls.
I picked up the cat food with the free coupon I got in the mail. The bag even had a coupon on it for a free can of wet food.
My greatest find at the estate sales this week was a quilt (queen size) for only two dollars. It doesn't have a stain or tear, it's just beautiful. This estate sale was quite disorganized and you had to hunt for the treasures. For this it was worth the hunt.
I'm making waffles and blueberry syrup (both low carb) as I'm typing. I'm making enough to freeze ahead for another breakfast. Although we try to keep it mostly low carb I feel that we have fell off the low carb eating quite a bit. I hope to remedy that from here on out. In other words he doesn't get mashed potatoes with his corned beef today!
Keep sewing and crocheting projects.
Keep Spring cleaning.
What are the ways you saved this week?
