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.
I came across a really good bargain a couple of days ago. I found 4 one quart containers of whipping cream marked 90% off.
At first I was thinking about making ice cream but I’m afraid that would simply ruin my diet. I would eat way too much of it.
I’ll make butter with two of them and freeze two to be used in cream of soups or other recipes calling for cream.
All you do is pour the cream into ice cube trays and freeze. Each cube is two table spoons. Two quarts of cream should last me for quite awhile. If I need more butter or whipped cream these can still be used for that too.
I also found broccoli on the discount table. There were 4 small ones which are now in the freezer too. I’m all set for some cream of broccoli soup or maybe a broccoli casserole when the winter weather keeps me indoors.
