This Week's Frugal Tasks Saturday 14th September 2019

I'm back to the usual pace this week and feeling much better.  Thankyou for all the well wishes you sent.  I've started restocking the freezer with precooked meals ahead of the busy season at the end of the year. Most of my Christmas shopping is done and Megan finished her shopping this week too.

Here's what else I got up to this week -

*  Gratefully received extra cleaning work this week.  Infact,  it was decluttering and sorting out a client's linen cupboard,  doing some washing and shopping for her due to illness.

*  Wrote a menu plan for the next two weeks.

*  Fed the compost bins with lots of kitchen scraps and paper packaging.

*  Fed grass,  bread crusts and weeds to the chicken to supplement their usual feed.

*  Picked silverbeet as our green vegetable for a few meals.

*  Bulk cooked spag bol sauce and stretched it out with grated carrot and silverbeet.  It's been portioned into serves for 2 and 4.  Some will be used for an upcoming short holiday to Ballarat with family.

*  Made a trip to Hindustan Imports to stock up on herbs and spices.  They are much cheaper than supermarkets.

*  Dug into my glass jar collection and found 8 glass jars that matched and turned them into bulk herb jars for the pantry.

*  Picked more rosemary from the garden to dry.  The last bunch was blitzed in the coffee grinder to make rosemary powder.  I'll gradually filling up the jar.
*  This week's super cheap meals were fried rice and chunky chicken soup

*  Made a trip to Savers with Megan and Luka to update Luka's wardrobe.  We found lots of great clothes for him at bargain prices.

*  Made lots of mini sausage rolls and froze them for a small gathering I'm having soon.

*  Baked four loaves of wholemeal bread with extra goodness.

*  Baked a whole orange cake and divided the batter into different sized cake tins.  The smallest laf and mini cakes were frozen and one was iced and eaten during the week.
