Supper today was all from items I had on hand. I made moussaka but before I could take a picture Harvey had cut into it and served himself.
I did not have tomato sauce so I used a can of tomato paste mixed with water until it was the right consistency and the right amount. I didn't have any canned tomatoes either so I just chopped up some fresh tomatoes. I also used up the cheese I shredded for our holiday (plus a bit more). It tasted wonderful!!! The eggplant was fresh from the garden, the ground meat was bought on deep sale a few months ago (I always buy extra when it is on sale) and the eggs were left from our trip. We even have enough left for our supper tomorrow. I will keep the leftover ham until later. Thrifty because I did not run out and buy any of the items I did not have on hand, instead I shopped at home and substituted where I could.
I am also using some of the leftover yarn from the rug and various afghan projects to start a few Christmas gifts. I am making my brothers toques and mitts.
I dried herbs today and will do some more tomorrow.
I needed to take my library books back and so picked up some more reading material.
All in all the thrifty day.
Everybody have a wonderful evening.
