Shh… don't tell anyone I'm poor. They all think I'm living frugal and green just like everyone these days. This is a blog about a senior citizen living a frugal life, on a fixed income, in a low income food desert, and passing along knowledge from lessons learned. Some she learned from her Grandma Mama many years ago and some learned only a few days ago.
There are times when I have nothing really new to post about. Life is a series of repeats and school spring vacations. I’ve also returned to machine quilting which means less time in the kitchen and less time on the computer. I’m not doing as much quilting as before but enough to satisfy my need to be creative.
A couple weeks ago I got apples. Lots of apples. I had bought sale apples on my last shopping trip.
Then a neighbor gave me some apples.
Then when I went to get my prescriptions I found apples in the discount bin.
The mobile food bank gave me apples.
That was a lot of apples and only two had bad spots. I made applesauce. I got 15 pints from those apples.
I didn’t need any syrup or juice so wild birds got the peelings. There were some really happy birds that afternoon.
