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.
This week the amount is slim but anything helps. Actually this is a pretty good combination of food.
1 grocery bag green beans (after picking through there is about 1/2 pound)
1 bag potatoes
1 loaf whole wheat bread
1 pack (3) lettuce
2 half pints chocolate milk
4 fake yogurt for kids
and 1 toothbrush
The milk is frozen to be poor people ice cream. Ladybug loves it.
The lettuce and cucumbers are joined by a can of beets, dried cherries, and a little bit of corn to be a salad. A couple of slices of bread become croutons for the salad. I mixed up cider vinegar, olive oil, and Italian spice to be the dressing.
The green beans are cooked with a couple of potatoes, a chopped small onion, and left over ham bits from the freezer. That was dinner. Delicious!
