Bread Crumbs…

I don’t like wasting hard earned money on things I can make myself, especially on groceries.

I use breadcrumbs in many dishes, from meatloaf to chicken breading. Store bought is not only ridiculous in price it normally has additives.

I like using left over bread I’ve baked, but any stale (not molded) bread works fine.

I use my dehydrator to completely dry the bread after cutting it up into cubes. You can use an oven on the very lowest heat. You want to make sure there is absolutely no moisture left in any of the bread.

Next I toss the cubes into my ninja blender and pulse until the crumbs are the texture I prefer. You can also add in dried herbs or dehydrated onion, ramps and or garlic if you like for seasoning.

I keep one jar with an easy access Los for immediate use and other jars I will vac-seal to store in the pantry.

I hope you enjoyed this frugal tip for your kitchen.

Until next time,

Popsicle Drip Catchers

Don’t you just love summer!  And the best part is when you give the kids treats they get to take them outside to enjoy them!  However, it also means that the kidlets will come back inside covered in ice cream and Popsicle more than usually what they got inside of them.

There are many gadgets on the market, but why spend extra money when all you need is two cupcake cups.  Yup, two cupcake cups.

Simple stack them into each other, and put a tiny little slit in the middle and slip the popsicle/icecream treat stick through the cut.  Just like that you have a really cool (ha ha pun intended) mess prevention tool!

Enjoy!
