Another weekend/Sunday tradition is a cooked breakfast. Usually, on weekdays, I don't cook breakfasts. Instead, I take something like cereal or a sandwich and fruit to the office to eat later in the morning and daughter does the same, taking a cereal bar and fruit to campus with her. But on the weekends, I will make something for breakfast.
Today, I made us French toast, which is a favorite of ours. It's an added bonus that it is also a very frugal breakfast, 4 slices of bread ($.99/loaf), 1 egg ($.99/doz.), about 1 cup of milk ($2.79/half gallon), a little butter or margarine (I used margarine, $.99/1 lb.; butter is more expensive at just over $3/lb.) for frying.
After breakfast, daughter worked on her homework assignment and I read the library book I had brought with me: it's about the British discoverers of Buddhism in India, in the late 1700s and early 1800s.
Later, I prepared lunch: rice, chicken curry, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, and a cucumber salad.
In the evening, we went for a walk and stopped at the dollar store on the way back. I bought 2 boxes of cereal and a packet of cookies and spent a total of $3.00.
It has been a very relaxed day, today, for me (not quite so relaxed for daughter as she had to finish writing her research paper and still has to review for a quiz).
Hope you've had a pleasant Sunday. What would you make for a frugal Sunday breakfast?
