It is a miracle. I have no food waste to share with you today! And it is not for a lack of trying. I have made every meal at home all week, so this is amazing. So instead of staring at my leftovers that have seen better days, I thought I would share some great ways to use up some leftovers.

Good Monday Morning! This weeks menu is boring, but I am still going strong on the 37 day challenge. Only 22 days left. Only, ha! I think I may end up making the turkey I have in the deep freezer. Any suggestions? I've never made a turkey before!

Due to the fact I spend the weekend at my moms, leftovers were not taken advantage of. This process does help though, to document what you are wasting.

There is nothing in the world I enjoy more than food. You celebrate over it, you grieve over it, it really is a glue that holds us together. I have joined Crazy about my baybah for Pin It Tuesday.

I can not even begin to tell you how excited I was to make this. Chevy Man thought I was losing it, ok maybe I was. I made the dough from scratch (recipe below) and then we grilled PIZZA!
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 1/4 tsp yeast or a package
3 1/2 cups flour
2 tbsp oil
2 tsp salt
1 tsp sugar
dissolve yeast in warm water. combine dry, then add wet.
let rise 1 1/2 hours. punch down and let rise 30 more minutes.
I divided into 2 pizzas about 12 inches pizza. This will depend on how thick you want it.
They were definitely not round, but hey that makes them rustic right? haha.
I then oiled each side of the dough.
Put tin foil on the grill, and oiled it.
Put the dough on, flipping about every 3 or 4 minutes until done.
Then I put all the toppings on the pizza, closed the grill lid and let the cheese melt. super yummy! I can't wait to make it again later this week!
documenting triumphs and failures of frugal projects.
Do you have one of those hobbies that you put on a platform? You know what I mean, your browsing online, see a finished project an think, "WOW, I wish I was that talented!"

Frugal Tip Tuesday is a weekly
series here at Frugal Farmhouse.
I want to share easy tips and tricks
to help you along your frugal journey.
I have always wondered why tomato paste came in one of those cans. I know they are tiny but who really uses all of it in one use? Not me, that is for sure and I hate to waste it. One my first use of a new can I use however much I need. Then I put parchment paper down on a cookie tray or cake pan. Place spoon fulls onto parchment paper and put it in the freezer. Once fully frozen I place each frozen nugget into a ziplock bag and put it back in the freezer. Now you have just enough for each dish with no waste!

Chop up the candy bars. I put them in the freezer for an hour or 2 before cutting them up, makes it easier. Then throw everything in and combine. Simple. It isn't the prettiest, but We sure like it.
