Frugal Friday

Welcome to Friday! 

My Frugal Week

My laptop was repaired and returned last Friday evening. The battery in my mouse died after sitting idle all week, but a new battery put it back into business.

We have been having to babysit our cat food when we feed the cats for the past few weeks as a racoon has been coming during the day to eat  Finally, the raccoon has been trapped and relocated.  Not before we trapped two of our cats, those poor babies. They cried and cried before I could get them out. 

Saving Money In My Frugal Kitchen

This week I wanted to make a Ramen Noodle Asian Salad. The price of almonds where I shop has risen in price, so what I did was to buy the smallest bag they had.  But I also added some sunflower seeds, which are much lower in price and will also add crunch to the salad. 

On Tuesday I had both Instant Pots going in the kitchen. One of them was making chicken for dinner while the other one was cooking Garbanzo beans for me to make some hummus. 

Meals This Week

Friday: Hamburgers, Tator Tots, Lettuce, Tomato, Onions, Pickles

Saturday: Italian Sausage Sheet Pan Dinner including Potatoes, Onions, and Red Bell Peppers. There was plenty leftover to have this for breakfast on Sunday morning and to have some potatoes to use as a side dish for Sunday dinner. 

Sunday: Homemade Beenie Weenies ~ I soaked two pounds of navy beans overnight and added them to my Instant Pot on Sunday afternoon. I added bacon, mustard, onions, brown  sugar, and Nathan's hot dogs that I sliced into coins.
