Frugal Friday File 2017, week 16...


Successes:
1.  I attended a free how-to class at the library to make a mosaic stepping stone.  The library provided all materials.  All I did was show up and play in the mud.  :)  And the friend I attended with brought me a jar of homemade pickles!

2.  I worked 40 hours this week...and lived to tell about it.

3.   I came home for lunch every day this week and cooked at home every night...so far.

4.  I bathed Rudy, cleaned his ears, and will trim his nails when he winds down a little...no groomer fee for me.

5.  I baked a $1.29 per pound Easter ham.  So far we've had ham with mac & cheese, sandwiches, and omelettes.  In the plans are quiche, packaging some for the freezer for more quiche and a casserole or two, and using the pan drippings (about a pint) to add to a pot of beans.

Frugal From the Kitchen This Week:
Saturday:  hamburgers
Sunday:  Sunday family dinner at Kasey's
Monday:  Pulled Pork Sandwiches with Coleslaw
Tuesday:  chili dogs
Wednesday:  Ham, Macaroni & Cheese, Fruit Salad

    1. It was fun, but I wasn't real happy with the way it turned out. But after several days, it looks much better. Whether I'm getting used to it or its appearance is changing as it 'cures' I'm not sure. :)

  2. I left a comment earlier and it hasn't bounced back so I think my comments to email problem is fixed (please, please, please). Hope this one comes through to your email too. I love ham - I also use it in a half dozen ways and finish it off in ham and bean soup in the CrockPot. Yummy!

    1. Both comments seem to be fine on this end. Hope you see the end of your problems with it. I only buy a ham about once a year, but I make sure to get as much from it as I can! :)
