I know it sounds weird, but freezing stuff like that just never occurred to me in the past.  i would just let stuff go bad in the fridge. 

I've found that beans and rice freezes pretty well provided you eat it within a reasonable time period.  And even freezer burned it's not awful. Cheesy

Awesome idea!  It's just me and my rabbits, so I try to stick to a food budget of about $50/week, including drinks and papergoods and such.  It's a bit high for one person, but I never come home with nearly as much as I think I should for the prices.  As I haven't been trying very hard lately - whoops - I am now back on the wagon!  I don't do coupons, mostly because I find it's cheaper to buy the storebrand of things.  Also, for herbs, I check the Mexican food aisle where most of the herbs I use are faaaar cheaper than the fancy 'spice' aisle at the grocery store!

I made some black beans and rice in the crockpot for dinner ...

1.5 cups of rice - $.25 (I buy the biiiiig bag and it was on sale for 3.99!)
2 cans of black beans - $1.50 (I know dried is cheaper, but I didn't  have any)
1 can of diced tomatoes - $.80
1 tsp. of garlic - $.05
various other spices - $.05
1/4 onion - $.25
carrots - $.50
1 cube vegetable bouillon - $.25

grand total .... $3.65 with 6 big servingsf or $.60/serving.  As it's just me, that will do me for lunches this week (along with the soup I made last week) and a few dinners.  Woot!  Or, if I get sick of it, I'll pop it in the freezer for later.

Oooh, this sounds fabulous.  I meant to make more this year and then it was December. :/

Don't forget to mark off what people are making you on your lists so you're not claimed for the same thing twice!

I think I might go dig through my craft hoard today to see what recycled things I've stashed away. (I think I'm going to start saying "craft hoard" instead of "craft stash". It makes me feel like a dragon).

Ha!  I love it!


And the mushroom goodies sound awesome!

No, I don't think spending 2011 on Craftster is a bad thing at all!  Cheesy

NatACT - I think that scarf is lovely!  And ha!   Can't make anything out of anything that small ... Craftsters rock.  There is nothing "too small" that it can't be used to craft!

And Ffrogg - we'll miss you!
