Thrifty Tip of The Day - Reheat Repeat

On Sunday night we barbecued two meals in one. Anticipating a busy week we cooked 4 steaks (rare so would taste good on reheat), 4 cobs of corn and 6 baked potatoes done in the oven. Monday we had a repeat dinner that tasted great and was ready in three minutes. Why six potatoes? Hubby is a midnight snacker and has now decided a reheated baked potato is a quick and tasty snack. So the next time you go to prepare a meal think about the re-heat possibilities instead of eating out due to lack of energy or ideas. You could add a salad or prepare a different side dish to mix things up. I don't know about you but leftover barbecued ANYTHING tastes great.

Costa Rica Update: Air Canada Strike is over and Holiday time is on!!

  1. Isn't it crazy how stressful travel can be. You aren't even on the plane yet but you have to sweat whether an airline will be on strike. I am glad it worked out for you.

    Lots of howler monkeys lately and flocks of parrots overhead. I bet you can already smell the salty ocean air.
