Best Deals for Thursday 06/02/2011

Good morning!

Today's frugal tip is from Laurie: "I used to buy chicken broth in cans; now I put the bones and skin of a rotisserie chicken to use.  After we have plucked a rotisserie chicken clean, I throw the bones, inedible parts and any leftover skin into a pot with four and a half cups of water and simmer it for 30 minutes.  I then drain it, let the broth cool and freeze four 8 ounce "cans" of chicken broth for use at a later time.."

Thanks Laurie! I can see this saving a lot of money over the course of the year.

Free Book Download: This Fine Life

The coauthor of the "Potluck Club" series has written a wonderful coming-of-age story that deals with the themes of friendship, first loves, and forgiveness. It is the summer of 1959 and Mariette Puttnam has just graduated from boarding school. When she returns to her privileged life at home, she isn't sure where life will take her. More schooling? A job? Marriage? Nothing feels right. How could she know that the answer is waiting for her within the narrow stairwell of her father's apparel factory, exactly between the third and fourth floors?

Free Book Download: Journey to the Well: A Novel

One of the most well-known and loved stories of Jesus's ministry is the encounter with the Samaritan woman at Jacob's well. Now the creative mind of Diana Wallis Taylor imagines how the Samaritan woman got there in the first place. Marah is just a girl of thirteen when her life is set on a path that will eventually lead her to a life-changing encounter with the Messiah. But before that momentous meeting she must traverse through times of love lost and found, cruel and manipulative men, and gossiping women. This creative and accurate portrayal of life in the time of Jesus opens a window into a fascinating world. Taylor's rich descriptions of the landscapes, lifestyles, and rituals mesh easily with the emotional and very personal story of one woman trying to make a life out of what fate seems to throw at her. This exciting and heartwrenching story will fascinate readers and lend new life to a familiar story.
