Friday afternoon we decided to take a trip to the Community Thrift Store. My old roaster pan (probably 30 yrs old) had seen it day. I thought since they are not used as much in our modern day cooking I would find one. Too my surprise, I found a like new Stainless Steel Roaster. $5 Happy Camper as I do a lot of oven cooking.
Also I wanted a small (2 cup) bowl with a pouring spout and this little pottery one fit the bill perfectly $2.95.
The other day Linda K. was sharing some of her thrifty finds and showed a picture of a golden glass covered casserole from Mexico. I found these two medium size casseroles (no lids) for $2 each. They both have Mexico printed on the bottom. Thanks Linda fo the tip. Perfect size for a meatloaf and scalloped potatoes my my dearest and me.
There was a long line to check out and how smart, they are to put bins of things along the way. Sure enough, this picture jumped in the cart. ($1.95) So sorry its blurry with reflections, but it's a lovely bunch of grapes and the Bible verse at the bottom from John 15:5 "I am the Vine, you are the branches. If you abide in Me and I in you, you will bear much fruit."
This has special meaning to me. When we lived up North and were in ministry, and I worked full time, and had a family, it was hard to carve out time to be with my Lord. I took a little corner of my living room, and made it my "Vineyard" where I got up early every morning before dawn to have some quiet time in the Word.
I always take a peek at the books, and I found The Pilgrims Progress in modern English. I was delighted as I have plowed through the classic in the King James English, and it was hard. This new version of a wonderful and powerful book is just like reading a novel. How smart to put such an important book in easy to read modern English. Yeah!! ($1.95)
It was a most excellent Thrift Shopping day!!
