I cooked dinner every night! No restaurant food just good ole home cooking! I have been cooking from the pantry and freezer and trying to get room for cheap meat--turkey and ham! Our budget is loving the freezer and pantry cooking! Yippee!
I found several tops at the goodwill for my niece for Christmas-both still with tags on them--brand new!
Porcupine meatballs cooling!
Muffins disappearing and cooling!
Using my rice cooker, I was able to batch up 2 meals--2 chicken and rice meals and one batch of plain rice for the freezer. For the chicken and rice meal, I cook the rice as per the rice cooker instructions just adding frozen peas, and dried veggies. I sub chicken stock for the water. Add your cooked chicken after the rice is cooked. I let it cool and then pack it in a quart freezer baggie. Pull out of the freezer and put in the refrigerator the day you want to have it for dinner. Just put in a bowl and heat in the microwave and serve with a salad. Great easy meal.
I found 2 cans of evaporated milk in a reduced bin at Kroger. Dents were not on the seams so it will be fine to use. Saving this for fudge for Christmas!
Was able to order my DS#2's Gifts for Christmas second hand. I cannot tell you what it is because he sometimes reads my blog! But I think he will love it! And I saved at least 50% by finding it on ebay!
I just have 2 more gift cards to buy for Christmas and I am DONE-put a fork in me! I met my goal!! Loving not having to Christmas shop in December! I am hoping for a stress free holiday season and I am well on my way to achieving this!
What have you accomplished this week?
