Buy reconditioned products – The meaning of this is the product has been returned to the factory where it was inspected and refurbished to working order. You may need to ignore the scratches and make sure that it comes with a warranty. An example is say a cordless drill that goes for $238 new can be brought refurbished for $157 – Saving $81
Make your own salad dressing – A store-bought salad dressing can cost about $3 or more. Make your own.
A vinaigrette dressing is :- 2 tablespoons of wine vinegar 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard, 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/3 cup of olive oil and pepper to taste. Put in a nice container and shake before using. Save about $1.50 a week if you eat salad most days (half a bottle) – Saving around $75 a year
Home Made Salad Dressing
Better and cheaper made a home.
Whisk together 1 minced garlic clove, a pinch of salt and pepper, 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard and 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar (you can use white Balsamic vinegar which I prefer) then slowly whisk in 1/2 cup of olive oil.
This is easy and delicious
- 1 lb. salmon fillets
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 tablespoon whole grain mustard
- 1 tablespoon mustard
- 1 tablespoon honey
- ½ teaspoon garlic, minced
The rule of thumb is to cook for about 10 minutes per inch of thickness which is measured from the salmon fillet’s thickest point. That would be the middle.
- Season the salmon filets with salt and pepper to taste and generously brush the tops with 1 tablespoon of whole grain mustard
- Over medium high heat, sear the tops of the salmon for 1-2 minutes until caramelized
- Combine regular mustard, honey and garlic into a sauce
- Transfer salmon to a baking sheet, skin side down and spread with the mustard sauce
- Bake at 350 degrees F for 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of the salmon
- Dish and serve hot
