Using things up

September 1st, 2014 at 05:44 am

Yesterday I used the packet mix of berry cookies, which went out of date months ago and was sitting in the back of my cupboard. I actually enjoyed them though.

Today I'm making macaroni and cheese for dinner. We've got a lot of pasta to use up, and a lot of plain flour too. I'm also going to make corned beef hash - not one of my favourites - for tomorrow's dinner. I've got all the ingredients in for it, and the last time I made it we enjoyed it more the second day. Lastly, I'm going to make some oaty biscuits since there's no treats in the house for us (that are already prepared, I mean)

    Great job using things up, even when you aren't a fan of the dish.

    Great thinking to make some ready-made frugal foods to keep on hand to help avoid the temptation to buy expensive treats when you are craving a snack!

    If you have flour and oats at hand, they are the base for all the easy to make in-season fruit desserts like apple crisp, battered fruit, peach cobbler, fruit buckle, brown betty, oatmeal bars, triffle, shortcake and more. If frozen fruit is less expensive, it is just as easy to use.
