I had a failed attempt at making homemade vanilla yogurt. It didn't set up properly but the taste was spot on. I didn't know what to do with it, but I knew I did not want to throw it away. We could not eat it in a bowl, but I believe God gave me some grace and the thought was born to use it for this
some tasty smoothies using blueberries we already had in the freezer.
We also went to our county fair and I shared some of the ways we saved money on this activity here
In the kitchen, we made our own spaghetti sauce, and banana bread. We also had some strawberries that were about to be beyond use, so I quickly sliced them up, placed them in the refrigerator with sugar on top. We used it to make our own style of strawberry short cake along with some other ingredients I already had on hand.
I almost forgot to mention we were also blessed this week with a big 13 gallon trash bag full of broccoli to feed to our chickens and pig. I also had a few groceries given to me. Eggs were on sale at Walgreens for $.99. (My husband spotted that deal) I am super uper blessed!
We hunted down some free Easter fun at a local retirement community. The kids played some simple but fun free games, and we got some free popsicles.
My husband and I had a date night at the local movie theater and only had to pay $12.00 to see a new movie (we may have later realized that it was because the clerk for some reason decided to give us a senior citizen's discount, stop laughing...I don't think we look that old)....so we had more than enough to spring for a soda and pop corn!
We also celebrated Jesus' Resurrection with our church family at a local park on Easter Sunday. There was a big picnic and we got our exercise in playing some basketball while running around with friends. There was so much food we even brought some home for dinner.
It was overall a great week. We had a lot of fun and some fellowship this week. How was your week? I love to hear from you feel free to leave your thoughts, comments, and accomplishments!
