Frugal Friday stuff
Thanks to my friend Wendy, who notified me og this deal, DH picked up 24lbs of carrots at Aldi for .49 a pound!! The kids love them with or without ranch dressing. I will cook some, can some, and dry some.
We went to Ashville this morning, and found a roadside stand right off the interstate. There we got 50 lbs of potatoes for $12...a 10 lb bag at Sam's is over $6; savings of over $18.
Also got the lemons pictured below for $1....I'll tell you about my use for them a little later.
Also pictured below is almost 20 of the 40 lbs of sweet potatoes we got for $16.
I put those in baggies and into the frezer they went. That was enough for 4 sweet potatoe casseroles (9x13 size), plus the one we had with dinner, and a cup full for sweet potato biscuits I made for tomorrows breakfast.
Update on the honey-bananas the we put in the dehydrator. They are good, but each slice had to be peeled off the rack.....as Emmi is doing below. It was a aggravating (even though she is smiling), and we decided they were not yummy enough to warrant the extra work. Notice on the right, front of the picture, 4 pints of strawberries in one jar, and 7 good sized apples in the other jar...dehydrated.
The lemons I got today will be used for this, after I use the juice. I got the basic idea from this great site.
