Did you girls notice the 'looping'????
-Pita bread made on Saturday was also for Sunday, and the leftovers will be used as a snack on Monday.
-Brownies made Saturday were for Sunday too.
-Red Beans and Rice on Sunday were for Monday, but also some beans were set aside for Thursday!
-Orange sherbet on Wednesday will also be for Thursday.
-Chocolate Pudding on Thursday will be frozen pops for Friday.
-Also, one bag (3 hearts) of romaine will be rinsed, cut with scissors, drained, and used for salads for 3 days or so. (Romaine is a great once-a-month-shopping veggie too! If it's fresh and remains in original packaging until a a few days before using, it will keep for several weeks.Last month, I bought 5 pkgs of organic for $2 each. They lasted my family for 3 weeks- frugal and fresh veggies-yum!)
