Thrifty Thursday: Week #13

When life gives you lemons, do you frown and get mad, or do you make lemonade? Well, whenever possible, I make lemonade. 

Last week I tried a recipe for Oatmeal Bread. Unfortunately it was awful, a big fat fail, almost no flavor. Not because of anything I did, I just think the recipe was bad, must be missing an ingredient or something. So instead of tossing it to the birds or in the garbage, I sliced it up, let it dry out and put it through my blender. I use breadcrumbs in my meatballs and on breaded meats, so no sense in letting it go to waste.

I think being thrifty or frugal isn’t always about where you found a bargain or how little you paid for something, it’s a mindset. Whenever given the opportunity, I try to think of how to reuse or recycle something. Thankfully my community does curbside recycling, so I don’t have to worry too much about that, but especially with food, it’s important to think like our mothers and grandmothers: “Waste not want not!” as they would say.
