Yesterday I went to my local mom and pop grocery store for a few items. Imagine my surprise when I saw the cleaned and sliced mushrooms were on sale for $.08 a lb!! Yup! They were cleaned and packaged and not even going bad. (The store is closed today and the cashier told me they would be starting to turn before they opened again on Wed.)
Anyway, I bought 6lbs of mushrooms for $0.48!!! Can you believe it! What did I do with 6 lbs of mushrooms you ask! Well last night I made mushroom soup that we had for lunch today. I saved some for tomorrow's lunch and froze the rest. Right now I have a mushroom barley soup simmering that I will freeze for us and will serve next week when my aunt comes over. We are also having sauteed mushrooms as a side dish this evening and I am thinking I will be making a mushroom and cheese quiche for breakfast tomorrow!
Everything I am making I have used what I have on hand so my $0.48 cent deal didn't end up costing me anything more in additional ingredients!
