Using the Stockpile, Day 4: I Went to the Store! Homemade Bread, Thrift Shop Stop & More.

I went thrift shopping this morning!  The Noah's Hope Thrift Store has a sale going on, 50% off everything.  I spent around $7.23 for all pictured, plus two drinking glasses (not pictured).  Includes:  Eddie Bauer Sweater, 4 books (4/$1), cat basket, cat scrapbooking supplies, CAT statue.. lol... 3 belts (two are American Eagle) for my husband and a big stove teapot.

They also had.. this... "thing"... Just $3, so $1.50 on sale.  Brand new with tags!  Brand is Raz Imports.

Yummmm.. honey oat bread!  Used 1.25 cups warm water this time instead of beer.  You can see my basic recipe her:  Honey Oat Bread w/Flax and Beer.

Okay, back to the reason for this blog.  I went to the store today for some fresh stuff.  What I found was some Greek yogurt by Anderson Erickson, which expires 1/14/12.  I bought 6.  Hey, at 99¢ for a 16 oz container, that's a steal for Greek yogurt!  They had two full milk cartons at the Riverside store.  I also got fresh blackberries (99¢ each, competitor's ad price), avocados for 2/$1 and some clearance Christmas flavored Jello and clearance bin flour that had a tear in the bag.  Go here for the full Fareway ad this week.

For dinner, leftover chicken!  And bread.  Delicious, homemade bread.
