Eating Free

March 1
Cereal for breakfast. We would never buy cold cereal, it's free on WIC. So is the milk.

Oranges and grapes for snacks. Those were free.

Pasta and sauce for lunch. Both the pasta and the sauce were from Food Net.

Tomato soup for supper. Made with soup from Food Net, and milk from WIC. We ate it with crackers that weren't free.

March 2

Breakfast was spiced apple-nut bread. It wasn't free (but the apples were).

For lunch we had alphabet soup combined with tomato soup. That was entirely free too.

Unstuffed pepper skillet

3/4 lb. brown rice
1 green pepper, chopped
1/2 onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 Tbsp. oil (oops, that wasn't free)
1 lb. sausage (8 patties, broken up)
1 can spaghetti sauce
1 can corn

Cook brown rice in rice cooker. Fry onions and garlic in oil until soft and clear. Then add green pepper. When it's done, add in the meat and the rice. Pour spaghetti sauce over. Add corn. Warm through and season to taste.

This tastes like stuffed peppers, but is less of a pain to make. And it's our supper tonight. Very nearly completely free.
