I used a cup of leftover pumpkin puree to make 4 dozen mini muffins. I served some for Sunday brunch and we ate the rest throughout the week for our breakfast and snacks.
I used our shreddables to start a fire in our firepot. We collected sticks that had fallen in the yard after a big windstorm for kindling and some scrap wood. We'll add the ashes to the compost bin later on.
I cut the top off a milk jug to make a new collection container for our compost bin. I keep it under the sink and empty it into our bin when it gets full. I added the old one to our recycle bin.
I had one and half pork chops leftover from Sunday dinner so I chopped it up to make fried rice. There was also a small dish of peas & carrots which I added in too. This allowed me to save the chicken breast I had originally planned to use in the rice for another meal.
I veered from our menu plan one evening. I had 2 cups of leftover mashed potatoes from Sunday dinner and 1/2 a cup of gravy so I used up along with a few other things to make us a shepherd's pie. By the end of the week we had used up all of our leftovers and had no food waste.
We continued to do our free online yoga classes. We also watched a Duran Duran concert on YouTube for free and listened to music. I started re-watching the series Covert Affairs. Love that show.
I ordered my oldest a new winter coat from JC Penney online. It was on sale and then I received an extra 20% OFF. I had it sent to the store at the mall so the shipping would be free. The original price on the coat was $125 and after the sale price and discounts it ended up being 59.99. Not too shabby, I think.
I used the proceeds from egg sales to purchase two 50# bags of feed for them for the winter. Good job ladies!
I collected peppers and tomatoes from the garden. Can you believe that our garden is still producing? We fed our kitchen scraps to the chickens. I composted coffee grounds, tea bags, garlic skins, egg shells and potato peels.
I did not do any grocery shopping this week.
The chickens blessed us with 26 eggs!
How thrifty were you last week?
