During my Frugal August I did a pretty good job of drawing down the freezer contents, of eating most of the fresh produce before it was ready to compost, and not spending as much in general. I'll work on letting the frugal practices move into September. I used ingredients from the freezer and enjoyed the results - in particular the cranberry bars I made from the fruit pulp after I steam juiced cranberries to make some Cranapple juice. Yesterday overripe bananas went into two small loaves of banana bread yesterday; one is in the freezer and one is bagged and being used for breakfast for the next couple of days.

We've had several ozone action days so I'm limiting my time outside and not driving much and not mowing in the morning, etc. I could smell woodsmoke this morning as someone prepares a Labor Day barbecue; that smoke isn't helpful to our in this weather, but is probably offset by fewer people driving to and from work today.
