Ham and beans

October 21st, 2012 at 08:05 am

Yesterday I made a big pot of ham and beans. I used crowder and purple hull peas from our garden that were dried and added a bag of northern bens. Turned out quite well. I added a pound of ham that I bought for $1.99. Frugal and yummy. I packaged half to make meals for hubby to take to work and the other half will stay in the fride for a few days for anyone to eat. Leftovers will be frozen for hubby's meals. I try to make large quantities of frugal meals for this pourpose.

I will make stew today with roast and new potatoes, and carrots bought on sale.

Hubby bought chuck roast on sale for $1.99/lb. I plan to by more to ground for hamburger meat.

Money spent since last post...
3 stainless pots and pans (with glass lids) from garage sale...$15.00
2 outdoor chairs to put by burnpile so we can sit around fire and chat Smile...$5.00
Groceries hubby bought out of town that we on sale...$57.00

This daily logging of money spent has really been an eye opener and it's only been a week.

    Can you post your stew recipe? I'm always looking for a good one.

    I wish we could get some decent ham over here. The best we can do is Oscar Mayer. Otherwise, it's salami or no pork at all, with few exceptions.
