Third Frugal Friday of February 2022




My Frugal Week

This has been a rough week here to say the least. On Saturday night my Mom had a bad fall and broke her arm. We ended up calling an ambulance for her and they decided to admit her into the hospital. On Wednesday they transferred her to a rehab facility. 

I’m sorry I’ve not been commenting on your blogs very much, but this was the reason why and I wanted to let you know. My heart has been other places this week, so this blog post will be a short one. 

We lost power last night for about eight hours due to the high winds. I was so glad when the lights finally came back on as I’m used to sleeping with a little bit of light. 

Saving Money In My Frugal Kitchen

Last week I used the last of some hamburger buns from the thrift bread outlet to make garlic bread, so no waste on those here. 

Meals This Week

Friday: Better Cheddars, Roasted Carrots & Potatoes, Green Beans with Onions

Saturday: Pizza

Sunday: There were so many leftovers In the fridge that I decided to heat those up for dinner and had a motley crew of them. They included pizza, lasagna, green beans with onions, potatoes and carrots, radishes, and black olives. 

Not everyone ate everything, but rather ate what they wanted. All that was left after dinner were some of the potatoes and carrots, so it was a good way to use up the leftovers without waste

Monday: Chicken Stir Fry, Rice and Vegetables 

Tuesday: Pizza for Movie Night

Wednesday: Sausage Pie, Cole Slaw, Kale Greens with Fig Balsamic Vinegar 

Thursday: Chicken Tenders, Cole Slaw, Salads

Sorry this weeks post is a short one. I hope you’ve had a good week.

  1. I am so sorry. Sounds like a rough week.
    I hope that your Mom will have less pain and that her arm heals well. Broken bones seem to take longer to heal as we get older.
    So glad that your power came back on, and I hope you were able to get some rest. Take care of yourself.

    1. Yes, we have a couple of flashlights and some candles. I want to get a battery operated lamp though and keep that by my bed. I think it would put me more at ease being in the dark. Thank you.

  9. I'm sorry to hear about your mom. Falls do so much harm after a certain age. Some weeks thrift and economy and blogs is the last priority. I hope she has a positive recovery.
