Bird in the hand

Hello dear reader's

Yes a bird in the hand is definitely worth two in the Bush, I have always been thrifty, I have to be especially now we are pensioners, but just lately I have been a bit lax and sometimes I get carried away when food shopping (we do love our food) and I do like to have plenty in the cupboards.
I have been following a blog called Frugal Queen, I will link her blog below,  she has brought me back to reality, got me back on the straight and narrow if you like, you will see why when you read her blog, don't miss it.
It is amazing how much money and time you will save by cooking two meals, one for now one for the freezer, it also gives you a cook free evening every now and then, another item I freeze is pancakes, I make twice as much batter cook them all up, eat some freeze some, voila.

When you have a meal from the freezer all you have to do is make the salad 😆

thanks for reading, I will look forward to your comments, let me know how you are thrifty.


  1. We make a big effort not to throw away food. It is good for our budget but also for the planet. Food is a huge part of municipal waste, and it doesn't rot in landfills (lack of oxygen for the bacteria to work). The freezer helps. So does meal planning. So do "tapas" night (which is not authentic Spanish tapas but leftovers with a better name) and "clean the fridge" pizza.

  2. Thanks Roz we have do moved away too for some reason, maybe laziness for me. Hate cutting coupons. I am definitely going to go have a look at the blog. Thank you.
    Love you both

  3. Roz, Good ideas here. I cooked every day this past week, now that my oldest son is home for the summer from college. I realized that no one ate frozen meals because there were leftovers, so they ate those. I need to be better about cooking, but I run out of ideas so quickly.

    Today, I'm making a quiche with ground sausage and Swiss cheese, along with a salad.

  4. Roz, Thanks for playing along with Dreaming of France today. Here’s my Dreaming of France meme
