Every Day

Please Buy More

I told Hubby this morning that my Top’s gasoline points are expiring so I needed to go fill up the car. He asked if there wasn’t some way that I could buy more of the sausage meat that he loves and fit it in the freezer. After giving it some thought, I decided to food saver some meat that was in boxes and that would give me some room.

So off I went to the gas station to fill up at $.30 off a gallon. Then I went just up the street to Aldi’s hoping that they would still have the sausage.  I purchased 5 more rolls at $ 1.49 each.

We only have 1 more shredded cheddar cheese in the freezer so I decided to pick up a package and I planned a meal for the next couple of days that I needed cream cheese to make.  


When I got home, I threw everything in the fridge. Then I got out my food saver and started repackaging the boxes in the top drawer of my kitchen freezer. By doing that, I was able to fit the sausage rolls in.   

A while ago, I purchased chicken breasts with the bone on sale. At the time, I deboned them all and threw the bones in the freezer. I have two big bags of them and they have plenty of meat still left on them. Since it is starting to be soup season, I decided to make some bone broth. So I put one bag of them in the crockpot. I will be simmering them all afternoon and evening. Then I will take the bones out and add the meat to the broth and freeze the broth for the next time I make soup. 


Here the broth is cooking which I will strain when it is done and then add the meat. 

It is all strained and the meat has been put in it.

I have now put the other bag of bones into the crockpot and I will simmer it all night. In the morning after I take the meat off, I will freeze that broth. I will have soup broth for two big pots all set to add my veggies and rice or noodles to when we feel like soup for a meal.  I love prepping things ahead for meals. It saves a lot of time when I don’t really feel like cooking and prevents me from getting take out.


I made this recipe for dinner tonight: 

Chicken Bacon Ranch Casserole


Hubby hated it. He said there was not enough sauce. I thought it was okay but not the best recipe I have tried. Perhaps someone out there has a better recipe. 

We are awaiting the start of  the NFL football game. Hubby has been waiting for football season for a long time now. He is excited.

I hope you all have a great evening.

Maybe you can just make it with more sauce. It does look good, but I will take your word for the sauce and taste. I am trying to figure out how to get more food in my freezer as it is quickly filling up. I really need my dehydrator!

I thought of that but since we are not in love with it, I probably won't make it again. I hear you on the dehydrator. I can dehydrate in the air fryer and I might just do that.

Hi AD, this is Chris. I wanted to let you know that hubby was off this week, so that is why I haven't been around much. He is outside right now trimming some bushes, so I have time to comment and let you know about my Kroger run this morning.

Kroger has cheese for $1.25 wyb in groups of 4, the 8 oz size, no limit. I hadn't seen a price so low for quite awhile, so I stocked up. The expiration dates were in Jan and Feb. I put some in the freezer and some in my fridge. I got several different varieties, like for lasagna, my chicken enchiladas, and regular stuff too. Our store also had a lot of things in the clearance aisle too. I bought some decaf tea bags that were $1 for 100 bags, and a big box of diapers for our granddaughter for $9. I did NOT buy any of the Hostess twinkies, ding dongs or cupcakes for .80/box, but they were tempting and they had 2 carts full of them. O.O

When I get done writing, I am going to send a picture of my granddaughters to you, so check your email. The little one is smiling now. She was 2 mos. this week.

Hi Chris,

Yeah on your Hubby's vacation. Wow, I would have stocked up on that cheese too. Great price at a time when dairy prices have been rising for a few weeks. Yup, those ding dongs would have been calling my name too. I got the Swiss rolls so that I can have West try them.
