Creativity and Frugality

One of Dana's favorite bloggers is the Frugal Girl. She has been inspired to cut back and be creative. As regular followers know, Dana cooks a lot. What started as a way to save has become Dana's creative outlet. She bakes like a monk and cooks wonderful meals. Most of them are from Wegman's or Every Day w/ Rachael Ray. And I LOVE it!

So, this morning, we had leftover skillet-grilled peppers and mushrooms from our pizza (note, that was fresh, from scratch, homemade pizza, including the crust) in the fridge. Dana decided she'd throw together breakfast burritos since she had that sitting around. How great!

So, Dana has her creative outlet because she started being more frugal. It reminds me of that saying, "Necessity is the mother of invention." I think of soul food (you know we loves us some soul food), quilting, and so many excellent traditions the same way. Just having leftovers sitting around that need to be used leads to something so very gratifying.
