      I took the kids to the new $2 movie theater about a
      half hour away and right next to it is a salvage
      grocery store. I got 2 bags of food for $8.80. I won’t
      buy stuff more than a few days past expiration though.
      You just can’t tell what’s in the package. I’m not a
      gambler.

      Also, I got 3 meals from a $3 roast last weekend. The
      roast was bottom round on sale for 99 cents a pound,
      so about a 3 pound roast. Here’s what I did: cover
      thawed roast with water or beef broth, add seasonings
      and cook in crock pot for 6-8 hours on low. Or, cook
      on high for an hour or 2 and then turn to low for a
      total of about 6 hours, until done through or as done
      as you like it. First night–roast with baked or
      mashed potatoes and veggies.

      After dinner the first night, cut up the rest of the
      meat into cubes, add fresh or canned veggies, whatever
      you have, to the broth from the roast, still in crock
      pot. Cook about 4 hours on high until veggies are
      tender or just heat through if using canned. Once soup
      is bubbling, add a cornstarch slurry to thicken broth
      (take out some broth into a bowl and add a few
      tablespoons of cornstarch, mix until dissolved). The
      soup should go for 2 meals, it did for us. We had it
      with grilled cheese.

      The roast is extremely tender and tasty in the crock
      pot–I won’t make it any other way anymore.
