This Week's Frugal Tasks Saturday 21st September 2019

Spring has finally sprung in our backyard.  We have blossoms on our plum,  peach and apricot trees.  Even our heavily pruned ( hacked ) lemon tree has 3 or 4 flowers on it.  It's great to see som many thing coming to life.  I can almost taste and smell the jam I'll be making if I get enough fruit.

Here's my frugal list for the week -

*  Made lots of mini quiches and froze.  I used eggs from our chickens and silverbeet from our garden.

*  Bought lots of packets of English breakfast muffins on clearance from Coles for 63 cents a bag.  They usually retail for just over $2.  I froze the lot for breakfast and lunches.

*  Made a double batch of ANZAC biscuit dough.  I baked some biscuits from it to give as part of a present for a belated Father's Day celebration with my Dad.  The rest of the dough went into the freezer.

*  Gratefully received lots of bread bags from a charity bbq.  They will be used as bathroom bin liners,  to pick up cat poop and as an outer layer to freeze food.

*  Gratefully received fridge door seals from a friend who repairs electrical appliances.  The magnetic strip inside is great to use for different crafts.

*  Darren bought a bunch of flowers for our wedding anniversary on the 2nd of this month.  I've been able to keep them going for over two weeks by changing the water and cutting the stems every few days.

*  Cooked a roast beef in the slow cooker and got 15 portions from it.  Three were served that night as a roast dinner.  Two more roast dinners were portioned up and frozen.  Meat for two was put in gravy and frozen.  One single serve of meat was frozen in gravy.  The following night I made a Massaman Beef  Curry from two thick slices that gave me seven portions ( five were frozen ).

*  Picked up a couple of fresh pizzas on clearance from Coles for $1.75 each.  I froze them for when we have hungry family members visiting.

*  Gratefully received limes,  mint,  cupcakes and rhubarb from a friend.

*  Picked silverbeet from our garden to have as our green vegetable.

*  Fed the compost bin almost every day with kitchen scraps, paper packaging and paper towel.

*  Gratefully received tomato plants from my Dad.  There were 10 seedlings in the punnet with was too many for Mum and Dad to use.
