11  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Craftalongs / Re: FrugALong 2010 March theme on Thursday February drawing this weekend! on: March 04, 2010 04:22:36 AM
Sorry I've been away for a while, school has gotten pretty hectic the past few weeks and midterms are this week, yikes! 

I haven't been very frugal these past few weeks either and that's very frustrating to me.  I didn't do my usual baking so our grocery bill was higher AND I didn't cook all weekend long...Laziness is frugality's worst enemy.  Next week is my spring break and I know I can get back on track then, but just thinking of all the money I spent over the past two weeks makes me cringe Sad

We just had a big snowstorm again yesterday.  Kids were happy they got a snow day hehe.  I skipped school today myself because I live on a dirt road that didn't get plowed.  My poor car just wouldn't make it out of the driveway lol.  We've had a remarkably mild winter here in Michigan.  I guess everyone else is getting the crappy snow for once Smiley  Hope everything goes ok for ya Aiki!

lylacfey:  LoL that is pretty funny about the "oprah" diet.  I wish I could get my guys to go meatless once a week. 

EnginerdLisa:  I have an e-reader as well.  I had mixed feelings about it when hubby bought it for me, because like pops I adore real paper and bindings books.  The positive side of it for me is that I have very limited space in my house and my book collection was getting out of control.  (I don't like to get rid of my books, I keep them and reread everything) So the e-reader saves tremendous space!  And if you have the Amazon one...there are a TON of free books.  I have only bought one since Christmas and have downloaded about 35.

Frugal note, today is baking day.  We are almost out of every snackfood in the house so it will most likely be...Bread, Tortillas, crackers, granola, cookies and sorbet.  I need to find some healthier recipes for snack foods.  If anyone has any I'd appreciate it!  Things that can be packed in lunches that don't need to be refridgerated.  Smiley

The books I have...

http://www.amazon.com/Herb-Bible-Easy-grow-Harvesting/dp/1845731484/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1266368828&sr=8-2

http://www.amazon.com/Pleasure-Herbs-Month-Month-Enjoying/dp/0760704430/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1266368997&sr=1-1

http://www.amazon.com/Herbal-Home-Companion-Theresa-Loe/dp/0517205548/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1266369126&sr=1-1

I also have a variety of other books that aren't worth mentioning, only a few recipes in each that are any good.  Also if you're of the pagan/ritual persuasion, this book is interesting for finding which herbs you need for what ritual...

I just thought I would share this here for those of us trying to lose weight but have a sweet tooth....I found the greatest sorbet recipe ever.  The best part is it doesn't cost that much to make and it tastes really yummy!  


2cups chopped Strawberries
1 cup cold water
2 cups boiling water
1 pkg (4 serving) sugar-free jello
1/2 cup sugar

1. Place strawberries and cold water in blender and blend until smooth.
2. Stir boiling water into combined jello and sugar mixure until completely disolved, then add the strawberry mixture.
3. Pour into a 9" pan and freeze for 1 1/2 hrs. or until ice crystals form on the sides of the pan.  Take the pan out and spoon the mixture back into the blender and blend until smooth.  Return to the freezer and repeat step 3 every 2 hours.

It tastes really good, and I was thinking that it would probably be really delicious with other flavors as well...can anyone say orange creamcicle? Mmmmmm! 

Edit: I forgot to mention, this stuff will get rock hard if you leave it in the freezer overnight.  I just put the whole thing in the microwave on defrost for a few minutes and used a melon baller to get it out Smiley
(recipe from either betty crocker or kraft foods i dont remember lol)
