We made out like bandits this week with our “free chicken scraps.” I can hardly believe we have been picking up free grocery store cast offs for over 4 months now. Where does the time go? There was a little something for everyone this time around.
Since our freezer is almost bursting at the seems with frozen strawberries, I had The Girl dehydrate these ones. She also dehydrated the mushrooms. We will use the strawberries in homemade granola, and dehydrated mushrooms in soups this winter.
All in all it was a great week to be a cheapskate. Lots of goodies!
- 3 bags stir fry vegetables
- 5 cantaloupe halves
- 9 ears of corn
- 1 bunch of cilantro
- 1 half of a pineapple
- 6 pounds of strawberries
- 12 ounces of spinach
- 1.5 pounds of mushrooms
- 3 heads of iceberg lettuce
Not too shabby if you ask me. I’m curious to see what freebies will be available this winter. Sweet potatoes? Squash? Apples? Who knows, but I’m excited, and I’m glad I’m keeping this up. It’s fun, and every week is a surprise.
Peace Out Girl Scouts,
I’m off to go work in the yard. I’m expecting company today so I need to go tidy up.
Would you like to see what else we have brought home over the past few months?
