- Yogurt. Milk was $2.48 a gallon and $2.78 for a half gallon so we got the bigger milk but really can't drink that much so I made yogurt with half of it. Yogurt is so simple to make. Simply heat the milk to boiling in a double boiler, cool it off, add a few tablespoons of plain yogurt with live cultures in it, keep it warm for about eight hours, and you end up with very tasty yogurt.
- Potato salad. We had some potatoes that were getting old so I whipped up a potato salad (boiled eggs, boiled potatoes, chopped onions, chopped pickles, mustard, mayo, salt, pepper. Simple.
- Bread pudding. We also had some hoagie rolls that were getting old so I tore up the rolls, added milk, egg, butter, sugar, cinnamon, and vanilla, baked it and ended up with a nice dessert for hubby.
- Pizza for lunch. I kind of cheated with this as it wasn't totally from scratch; I used a frozen pizza from the $1 store, added some shredded cheddar, chopped onions, and chopped tomatoes; baked it and had a yummy lunch.
- Beef soup for hubby. Also super simple. I just boil beef bones that have a little meat on them, add onions, salt, pepper, and vegetables, serve with fish sauce and lime and "ta da" he has "nilaga" a Filipino soup.
