Using the Stockpile, Day 2: $0 Spent

Breakfast and lunch really aren't that exciting around here, as they usually consist of leftovers.  This morning, my husband had his typical cereal and I had coffee, 2 eggs and some bacon from my freezer that I got on sale at Hy-Vee.  Lunch was just some yogurt for me with granola and he had summer sausage, peanut butter and banana.  I am going to have to make a run for bananas soon!  Oh, and maybe milk!

I wanted to try making some bread in my $5 bread maker, using leftover All Bran Flakes that nobody has eaten in a while.  I had gotten a bunch of All Bran on sale a while back, but my husband prefers other cereals.  The bread didn't cook completely in the bread maker, so I switched it to the pan and baked it (and baked a squash since the oven was hot).  Anyways, it was more of a bread pudding type situation than bread, so I am going to perfect the recipe before posting!  I hope I can find some Cool Whip in the freezer to eat with it. :)

Boo to you, test bread!
It's "bread-er" eh?

For dinner, I put one full chicken breast (frozen) and 1 cup of uncooked basmati rice in the crock pot with 2 cups of water and 1 chopped green pepper.  After the chicken was mostly cooked, I added a jar of Patak's Korma Curry simmer sauce and about a cup of frozen peas and let it simmer for another hour.  Delicious and easy to make while I'm working!

Total spent on food outside of stockpile:
Today:  $0
This Month:  $0
Stockpile items demolished:  1 box of Kraft Mac & Cheese, 1 jar of Patak's Sauce, 1 bag of granola, 1 bag of protein powder, 1 rogue squash, 1 package of chicken breast.
