Bailey and I went yard sailing early on Friday and Saturday, so my blog post is later than usual this week. She found some plants at two different yard sales and was so tickled to add them to her collection. If you follow her Instagram account you can often see her finds even before we get home.
My Frugal Week
Bailey went to her monthly book club on Friday evening. The book they read this month was Rogue Wave. The lady hosting the book club likes to find food from the book to serve at the event. This month she brought roasted fruit and cupcakes, which Bailey brought home.
Saving Money In My Frugal Kitchen
We used up every last bit of bread we had in the house. I even used up three hotdog buns to make into garlic bread.
This is the recipe I made last week where I substituted the Taco Bell mild sauce for the salsa. What I did with the chicken was cut it up into bite size pieces and cooked it in my Instant Pot first and then assembled the rest of the casserole, so I only had to cook this for around 20 minutes. It saved energy by having the oven on less, which saved the ac from having to cool the house more.

This is a short blog post this week. But I would love to know how your week was in the comment section.
