We went to town today for my daughter's volunteer duty. We left early so we could stop in at several places. First stop was Kmart for Ziploc lunch bags for 19¢ and while we were there also found a bottle of cranberry-grape juice for $1.60.
Next stop was Target for Cottonelle wipes for 52¢ and Bounty paper towels for 37¢. I saw one of the members of the school board while we were shopping there and I said hi to him. I should have told him about lunch yesterday. lol :)
We had a deal to do at Dollar General today, and went, but it did not work out like it was supposed to, so we left empty-handed.
More freebies from my friend...
Twelve bottles of Dawn and six bags of Dove chocolates.
I went inside the library to wait on my daughter and browsed the movie section. I picked up The Heartland Series 20th Anniversary Special to watch this weekend.
The Heartland Series was created in 1984 to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and was a series of stories aired on WBIR-TV in Knoxville between 1984 and 2009. The series celebrated the people and land of the Southern Appalachian Mountains. Actor Bill Landry, a former teacher, narrated the series.
The library has several of the series volumes in their collection, so I will be borrowing more of them in the future.
Dinner tonight will be Taco Style Lentils & Rice from the old Hillbilly Housewife website. I put this in the crock pot before we left home this morning, so all I have to do when I get back is to make a salad to go with this.
3/4 cup dry lentils
3/4 cup brown rice
4 cups tap water
4 beef bouillon cubes
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
In a 2-quart saucepan bring the water to a boil. As the water is heating, add the lentils, rice, bouillon, chili powder, cumin, onion powder, and garlic powder. Bring the whole thing to a nice fat boil. Reduce the heat to low. Place a lid on the lentils and allow the mixture to simmer for about 45 to 50 minutes. The water should be mostly absorbed. You may serve this as it, topped with a little cheddar cheese if desired. Or you can use it to fill burritos or tacos instead.
How was your Saturday?
Live simply by not spending money you don't have.
