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.
Yup, its the sixth weekend in 2016. Weekends are for canning and baking since I’m not babysitting those days. The kitchen is after doing some quilting work first.
I was rather productive this past weekend. I canned beans first. Six pints white beans and four pints brown beans.
I had found some discounted mushrooms at the store on Thursday evening after the baby went home.
Those got turned into 14 half pint jars of mushrooms ready to use. I use and eat lots of mushrooms.
Did you notice I’m using the tattler lids again? I have the newest self venting ones that don’t have a learning curve. I treat them just like the metal lids and so far there has only been a couple of fails. I believe the fails are from the metal ring instead of the tattler lids.
After that I made two loaves of bread for my daughter. One cinnamon raisin and one sandwich loaf.
I baked cornbread and made beef barley vegetable soup too but didn’t take a photo of them. Right now I smell the beef barley soup being warmed. Its making me hungrier. I’m gonna eat dinner then do a bit of quilting before bedtime.
