WFD ~ Easter Sunday Dinner
Woke up early this morning to put a Rump Roast in the Crock-pot along with some carrots, which I bought at Sam's Club this week. Sam's sells five pound bags of carrots for $2.98, which works out to 59 cents per pound an unheard of price in any grocery store here. Served mashed potatoes (loss leader this week - 10 pound bag for $2.99) along side the roast, and served Strawberry Shortcake for dessert. Made two gallons of sweet iced tea for drinks (55 cents per gallon - I use decaffeinated tea bags, so higher cost than regular tea bags). Total cost of dinner was right under $20, which is not bad for a holiday dinner considering Christmas or Thanksgiving dinners can sometimes cost three times that amount.
