Frugal Friday

I planned ahead for our day out running errands and pulled something from the freezer.  This gave us a quick, inexpensive, home cooked meal. 

I picked lettuce from the garden.  It is still holding up well and should last until we are able to plant more once the weather warms up.

I harvested stinging nettle from my garden and dried it in the dehydrator.  I will use it to make a tea to help with my allergy symptoms.  I have bought it in the past, but free is much better. I did need to wear leather gloves.  Otherwise it was simple.

I resisted the urge to buy some clothes and cookbooks.  I did not need any of it though it was tempting. 

I made some birthday cards and note cards.

I watched a few shows for free on the History Channel. 

I used some materials on hand to make a sprouter for the farm animals.

I planted tomato and herb seeds in the greenhouse.

I found a recipe that called for stinging nettles...I'm pretty sure it was a pasta dish. I'll see if I can find it again and get it to you.
