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
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.
