Frugal Friday

Well it's Frugal Friday again! Yippee!
I saved at CVS!!! I paid $1.98 cash, used $4 off of $20 store coupon and $16 in ECB's. I got $22 in merchandise and $16 in ECB's in return! My Husband stood by amazed and bewildered (and I can't remember when the last time was that I saw him that way!).

I ran out of eggs this week and started a recipe for alphabet cookies with my little ones when I realized my dilemma. I remembered someone else's post last week for making hair gel with flax seed. Well I figured that would be a great egg substitute!
I used: 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
2 to 3 tablespoons warm water
Mix well, add as you would an egg! They turned out great! One of my older girls and I tried it in the cupcakes we made for Bright Lights! They are great too! I just want them out of our home quickly!

Praise the Lord. He never ceases to come to aid. Even in the smallest of needs!

Funny you mentioned the egg substitute! I was on a website just yesterday that had several listed (for making your own teething biscuits for babies under the age of one with recipes that call for eggs). ANYWAY, here's the link in case you ever run out again!

I'm glad that they turned out well!

Oops - sorry. Not sure if that went through. I broke the url down into three lines instead, just delete the spaces and you're there!
