Veggie Lasagna

Lunch was great today. I had half a pan of veggie lasagna leftover from last night's church gathering, (made with fresh veggies from my garden) so we had that, salad, & I tried a new recipe, Biscuit Sticks. Here's my recipe for Veggie Lasagna, (with no cheese for vegans) & the link for the Biscuit Sticks (I added garlic salt to mine.) With everything the meal cost about $1.00 per plate

Veggie Lasagna

1 zuchinni, diced
1 yellow squash, diced
1 bell pepper, diced
1 tsp chopped garlic
1 can crushed tomatoes
6 oven ready lasagna noodles, (I soak mine in hot water)
1/4 c. water
Italian seasoning
garlic Salt

In skillet, heat 1 tbsp olive oi, saute veggies until soft. Add tomatoes, salt, seasoning, & water. Layer in 2 quart baking dish, veggies & noodles, ending with veggies. Sprinkle top with cheese if desired. Bake at 425 degrees for 40-45 minutes or until noodles are done. Serves 4

Cucumber Salad

I have a massive amount of cucumbers coming from my garden! In addition are cabbage, squash, tomatoes, zuchinni, & peppers. I don't can (need to learn) so what I don't cook I give our friends at church. And we have been going to lots of fish fry's & picnics so I always take my Cucumber Salad, it's great (if you like cukes!)

Cucumber Salad

2 large cucumbers, skin on, sliced thick
1/4 onion, sliced
1 c. vinegar
1 tbsp water
1 pkt Splenda (or use sugar)
1/2 tsp dry dill
garlic salt

Combine all together & let chill overnight for best flavor.

Summer Fun

The girls & I went to the library today. I sometimes forget that the library is a great frugal fun house! They have books, DVD's, & CD's all free to check out. And unlike movie rental stores, if you don't take them back for 2 -3 weeks the only charge is something like 50 cents.
Most libraries have summer programs. My mom takes my nephew every Thursday & they have an activity like a magician or they watch a movie. They also give coupons for free food from local resturaunts.

Free Samples

One of my favorite sites is Everyday they have new direct links to get free samples. It's great. Today I got 2 Pullups, samples of Huggies Baby wash & shampoo, & a sample of Fiber One Carmel Delight Cereal.

$30 worth of stuff for $3.84!

Went to Walmart while visiting mom & walked away with all this for $3.84 using my coupons. The guy at the register was amazed.
