The Day Old Bread Store

July 30th, 2008 at 01:45 pm

Yesterday we ate very cheaply.

My parents picked up a pile of bread products at the Day Old Bread Store. A whopping $2 for a giant bag of bread. The GOOD stuff. English muffins, dinner rolls, giant onion rolls, etc.

Anyway, they gave us a pile of it when we were last in San Jose.

(We need to find one of those - we have a wonder bread place but it is a bit out of the way).

Anyway, dh told me a little bit back he had some extra ground beef in the freezer if I wanted to use it for anything. So yesterday I figured a hamburger sounded mighty tasty, but knew I wouldn't get away with it while the kids ate other leftovers. LOL.

So I pulled 2 mini-hamburgers out for the kids, and saved myself a few calories I guess. I was thinking of the nice onion rolls we had from my parents (which were very fresh even 10 days later).

We also still had some dinner rolls, so I put the kids minnie hamburgers in those.

What a hit!

That was my cheap meal of the week since it was all leftover/free stuff.

    I discovered the Pepperidge Farm outlet in our area. I did have to buy the smallest snack cookie bags at 3/$.99 to get a Mint Milano fix. Other than that $20 got me bread and goldfish crachers (the $6.99 carton at Target was $4.99) and Campbell's soup at hand for two weeks.

    The quality varies at these stores around here, as does the best day of the week to go. But one of them has free items with every three loaves of bread etc. And Milanos!

    Thanks for the reminder--we need to have a massive eating from the freezer effort.
