I was late posting last week's savings so this is a short list.
W picked some lemons from a neighbor's trees. I actually think these are a cross between a lemon and maybe a grapefruit as they have an unusual look. I had to wait for some to ripen further. The ones that were ripe got zested prior to being juiced. I put the juice in a bottle in the fridge and the zest I dried on a piece of waxed paper.
I did some freezer cooking. I made a big pot of Brunswick Stew and divided it up into meal sized portions. I also made whole wheat tortillas. Having some quick meal options on hand is a time and a money saver.
We had snacks after a sing at church. I used items on hand to make hot dog slices in a pineapple barbecue sauce, banana chocolate chip cookies, and strawberry lemonade.
I made my Swagbucks goal every day for the month of December. The gift cards earned will go toward a faucet for the new house.
I crocheted some hairbows for the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes using yarn scraps.
I picked a tomato from the greenhouse.
I was gifted some beeswax which just needed to be processed.
I ate three meals of homemade frozen dinners. Breakfast was pancakes. Dinner was rice and gravy, roast, and peas. Supper was nachos using a bit of frozen taco meat.
