The first thrifty thing I did was head out to the garden and clip some mint to dehydrate. I use the dehydrated leaves to make tea during the winter. This saves me having to buy mint tea bags when I want to enjoy my favourite mid afternoon tea break.
Then I started working on my tomato based spaghetti sauce. I used up all the frozen tomatoes from last years harvest. I didn't want to throw them out and this seemed like a good idea. I got 2 large plastic containers of saucy goodness to use in the winter. I know I will want to make more later on.
I found lots of recipes on line to use up those plums, and I have all the ingredients. So starting tomorrow I can see and smell some lovely loaves, tarts and pies being made.
I am also going to dehydrate some more mint as well as some parsley.
Seems like the garden is producing just enough to keep me busy most days.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
