This week instead of planning a big salad for dinner, we are having stir fry. I like to make stir fry every once in a while to use up any veggies that are hanging out in my crisper drawer before they go bad.
If I check my crisper drawer and I’ve found good deals on vegetables that would work well in a stir fry then I add it to our menu plan.
We will be having a breakfast for dinner, this week it’s waffles. I recently found a great deal on a waffle iron. It’s just like mine that’s well over 30 years old, but it looked brand new.
Best of all it was on the half price day of the estate sale. I only paid $4 for it.
I don’t really need a new one right now, since my old one is working fine, but I decided to spend the $4 now and put it away for when my waffle iron finally gives out.
A brand new waffle iron like the one I use currently would cost me $70. Spending the $4 now can save me $66 in the future.
Ok enough babbling about waffle irons and onto this week’s menu.
