Since one of the ways we are financing our bus build is by NOT spending money on other things, like going to movies and/or buying DVDs or eating out, I thought I would share the following website.
This website is rather large and varied. Lots of good recipes on it. The copycat section has recipes that I have not found anywhere else. Has a section onhow to make your own cookbook
, camping recipes
which are more for the "cooking over the campfire" crowd. A nice selection of Cooking for 2 recipes
, Freeze Ahead
for those like us who think security is a full freezer, which kinda goes along with the large batch recipes for groups
, and the ever popular Jar Mixes
which can also be packed into ziplock freezer bags as "convenience" or "box mix" foods. There is a microwave recipe
section as well as a Turbo Cooker Recipes/Convection Oven/Toaster Oven Recipes
which is unusual.
As for the movies... I love movies. Even better than watching in the cool darkness of a theater, with the accompanying high admission prices, overpriced snacks, sticky floors and funny smelling seats is to watch a movie for a lower price. I signed up for Redbox's emails
and almost every weekend I'm getting either 50¢ off or either one or two movie rentals (must use by Sunday of that weekend). Last week was 50¢ off a single rental. So I reserved "Cloud Atlas" online (missed it on an earlier try) and walked across the street to pick it up. Sometimes I get free movie rentals. There is a Redbox just across the street from where we stay. I have used the Redboxes in various states. I can rent a movie in one state and return it in another state. Very handy. When traveling, I can even sit inside the bus, go online, peruse the Redbox at the location I'm at, see what is available at that particular Redbox, rent it online and that way, I know the movie is ready and waiting for me to pick it up. I've had more than one movie rented by the person standing in front of me!
So combining a copycat of a favourite "restaurant" meal and/or dessert with the luxury of watching a movie while we eat is nice to us. And we save a lot of money over eating at a restaurant plus theater movie.
