Frugal Friday.....Greater Taters!


 This is a quick and easy way to have a warm meal on a cold night.  I used my Thrive Chicken, Broccoli and Shredded Cheese to spice up my potato.  Using my Thrive ingredients saves so much time.  I didn't have to trim  cook or dice my chicken, just add water and its ready!  I also love the fact that I have broccoli around the house at all times.  It is a great way to get veggies into my meals.






Here is a shot of the Chicken, Cheese & Broccoli re-hydrated.

Frugal Friday......finally!

Another great way to save money and time is by using Shelf Reliance Taco TVPWith a cost per serving between .35 and .60 cents per serving it is a great staple to have handy.  Tonight I had soft taco and my husband opted for nachos!

After rehydrating the Taco TVP I browned it with a little bit of olive oil.  Make sure to drain the TVP well so that it will brown and not steam!


This is the TVP after re-hydrating and before browning.
I added cheese, sour cream, Rotel tomatoes and a few olives.
I had sour cream and cheese in the fridge but you could also use
Shelf Reliance's freeze dried cheese and sour cream powder.




I love the new Thrive Cookbook!
It has great recipes for their food storage items.

For the last hour to figure out how to blog with my IPad and I am
Now officially giving up!

I will post my Frugal Friday tip tomorrow, hopefully!

Frugal Friday

With the cost of groceries continuing to rise I am always looking for
ways to save. A great way to save is with Shelf Reliance Thrive Instant Milk.
Thrive instant milk is made From 100% real milk.

I typically don't drink milk and use it for cereal & cooking and I always end up tossing out a good portion of my container because it has spoiled.

With Shelf Reliance Instant Milk I don't have to worry about that anymore. The shelf Life of an unopened can is 25 years and 2 years opened.

I love knowing that I always have milk on hand and I don't have to worry about throwing away my money on spoiled milk.  Whether you drink a gallon a week or a gallon a month Shelf Reliance Instant Milk is definitely a money saver.

Easy Shelf Reliance Chicken Salad With Pecans & Craisins

I love chicken salad and love the ease of making a quick batch with Shelf Reliance's Freeze Dried Chicken!

Recipe:
1 1/4 Cups Thrive Chopped Chicken (FD) reconstituted
1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
1/4 Cup Craisins
1/4 Cup Chopped Pecans
Salt
Pepper
Garlic Powder


Add Mayonnaise, Craisins & Pecans to Drained Chicken
Mix Well & Season To Taste With Salt Pepper & Garlic Powder

Typically I will refrigerate my chicken salad and eat it cold on crackers.  If you are looking to make this dish as an entree I love baking it on toast topped with sharp cheddar cheese.  The sharp cheese is a nice contrast to the sweetness of the craisins.

I hope you enjoy this as much as my family!
