But nope- I actually did get some frugal stuff done.
Foraged wild garlic/onions.
|All my alliums- on my Phil and Ted's stroller that I got free a few weeks ago|
The kids foraged cherry plums.
The kids foraged rosemary for my vegan stuffed mushrooms.
Mike foraged olive leaves for tea.
Made homemade boquet from foraged flowers.
Ordered sandals for Rose, shoes for myself, sneakers for Ike, shirts for the girls, and stockings for myself very cheaply from NextDirect.com.
|Queen Anne's Lace, pomegranate |
flowers, and lavender
Got a hand me down awesomely huge floor fan from someone decluttering- and it is super powerful, so hopefully it'll prevent us from feeling the need to turn on the AC, on all but the hottest days.
Frugal in the Kitchen
Served leftovers for lunch.
Took leftover rice, beef kebabs, green beans and zucchini, and a mushroom and lettuce dish, and mixed them all together with some wild alliums to make a yummy and frugal supper.
Made fish patties with sardines bought at a superb price on sale, leftover rice, and wild alliums.
Made homemade sesame milk.
Kids made some homemade salad dressing.
Served rice and lentils for a few meals instead of animal protein based meals.
Made homemade chocolate zucchini muffins using zucchinis on their last last legs.
Made homemade ketchup.
