Thrifty Tips - July 11
MONEY SAVING RECIPES
Pork chops are on sale at Albertsons this week. These are bone in which actually make the meat much tastier. Follow this link for a great pork chops and apples recipe from Betty Crocker or try this recipe for gluten free roasted pork chops and vegetables also from Betty Crocker.
KEEP THINGS FRUGALLY COOL
I shared this tip a few weeks ago, but I wanted to share it again. Make inexpensive ice packs with sponges. All you need to do is soak a sponge in water. Squeeze it just a bit so it isn't dripping and put it in a zip lock bag and freeze it. You can use these to keep lunches cool, give yourself a cold compress or even to ice an injury. The great thing is that as it melts, the sponge will absorb the water. You can buy inexpensive sponges all over and reuse often, and if it breaks, you don't have to worry about chemicals oozing all over your lunch.
MONEY SAVING TIPS FOR THE KITCHEN
If you are baking a cake and find you are an egg short, substitute one teaspoon of cornstarch and bake away.
Make your own cooking spray oil by combining one part oil to five parts water in a spray bottle. Yep...that's it. You can use olive oil, canola oil, vegetable or corn oil. Works like a charm.
