Potato Day

Sometimes I wonder if I take frugality too far. Occasionally at my grocery store 10 pound bags of potatoes go on sale for $1.99 and I snatch them up and embark on a HUGE potato making session. I make multiple batches of this recipe from Cooking During Stolen Moments that has become a definite family staple and freezes beautifully. I also cut a bunch up, roast them and portion them into freezer bags with cut up breakfast sausages for breakfast skillets (just defrost, throw in a skillet and heat through and then add eggs for a 1 pan meal!). I cut them into steak fries and bake and sometimes even give in to  NJhusband's pleas and make him fresh potato chips. It's a marathon day, but I can get several dishes out of just one or two bags and it's definitely worth it while we are a 1 income family.

Now if only dog food could be bought for that cheap! I think if I do the math the dog costs more per serving than we do! LOL
