        I made a pasta salad and bought veggies on sale to put on the pasta salad. I also got the Italian dressing on sale and had a coupon for a free box of pasta. Then I also bought Doritos at Krogers when they were on sale buy 2 get 3 free.

        Which we will take 2 bags with us to the family gathering and use the other 3 for our family adventures where we picnic while out and about exploring vs eating out.

                  It’s the 3rd, but am making enough chilled broccoli salad, sweet potatoes with butter & brown sugar (made in microwave) and iced tea for tomorrow too. No firing up the oven in 103 degree heat Northern AZ.

                  Proposed: Happy 4th of July, everyone! What are your plans for the day? Share your frugal celebrations for a chance to get featured!

                  Happy 4th of July everyone!

                    Burgers, chips & dip, pickles, potatoe salad & home made artichoke dip and a flag cake we made. Everything from WalMart. Easy and things we like.

                      I picked up the rotisserie chicken from Walmart. I had to stick it in the oven to cook it a little longer.

                      So, I’ve got twice baked rotisserie chicken. It’s just me so I’ll eat on it for days and then use the carcass to make broth!

                      Happy fourth everyone be safe

                        The church down the road where I community garden is having a cookout and everyone is welcome. It’s free.
