Chicken for supper

We had a chicken breast that I got for 1.91 and mashed potatoes .20 from the salvage store and then some frozen brocolii 1.00 so that was $3.11 for supper for the four of us. I didn't think that was too bad. The chicken breast was on sale so it was a good price.

Going Green

I saw on TV that if you have solar panels you can get the money back from the grants and then with in 5 years they should more than pay for themselves. If you have a house it is worth looking into.

Air Dry

How do you dry your clothes? Air drying clothes saves so much money. It can cut your cost in a great way. I have an indoor clothes line that I use. I figure I might as well make the heat in the house work for me.

Drinking WATER

Okay I know how much people hate to drink water. I have been drinking more water. It not only is cheaper but it is good for your body and helps weight loss.

A glass of soda is on sale here for .64
The same glass of water is less than a penny or for me free because it is included in my rent.
I also have bought a filter pitcher for $24 to help the taste. I love the way the water taste. I also bought a reusable cup and water bottle. This saves our resources. It means there is less in the landfills.
A glass of water has zero calories. A soda has 500 calories. Then the chemicals that you are putting in your body. So drink a glass of water instead of the soda.

We don't know how many other health benefits having water helps you.

Homemade Orange Sherbet

My daughter reminded me of a summer favorite. It is starting to get warm here.

I put all of this in a large Tupperware bowl and pop it in the freezer. I take it out and shake it every half hour till frozen.

2 cans Eagle Brand sweetened condensed milk
6 (10 oz.) orange soda pop or 1 - 2 liter

Pour orange soda into ice cream freezer and add Eagle Brand milk. Stir it up with long handle spoon and freeze. NOTE: Any flavor soda can be used for variations of flavor.

You could use generic sweetened condensed milk. I use the 2 liter. Strawberry is good too. I figure it is .59 for the generic soda and .99 for each can of generic milk so not a bad treat.
