November 9, 2015 – November 16, 2015
The week started with a warm sunny day encouraging us to spend the day cleaning up the yard before winter sets in. And then rain came, followed by the snow. Winter seems to be on its way.
The cool, wet weather certainly encouraged us to stay home. With all this time we managed to get several home improvements finished. I worked on eating down the freezer. I made teriyaki using a recipe found online. I will definately use this recipe again. I also used up some of my pumpkin in a curry recipe. I substituted ½ of the chickpeas for cauliflower because to tempt the Man. He was a little skeptical of having a meat free meal and cauliflower is one of his favorite foods. Cauliflower was also on on sale this week. It turned out well enough that we had it for dinner the next night and froze the leftovers for a future meal. The cool, wet weather was perfect weather for sitting by the fire working on Christmas presents.
What frugal endeavors did you take on this week?
