Hi Ya’ll!! I am a creative, coupon clipping, and frugal living mom in the Tri-Cities TN. I have been couponing for over 15 years, and I am always looking for ways to save a buck.I love to cook in my crock pot, look for bargins,decorate and makes crafts on the cheap too, and shop Consignment sales. I like to encourage local folks to shop local by doing reviews of local businesses. A Frugal Chick always gives back and I share ideas on how to do that too.

Countdown to a Frugal Halloween: 5 days to GO!
Betty Crocker Bug Juice
1/2 Cantaloupe melon 4 Bamboo skewers for bug garnish Betty Crocker® Cloud White Cupcake Icing Cake Mate® Monster Mix Decors 2 tablespoons Cake Mate® Green Apple Decors 2 cups apple cider 1/4 cup fresh lime juice 1-2 drops Betty Crocker® Green Gel Food Color 1 1/2 c seltzer
Use a melon baller to scoop 8-10 cantaloupe melon balls. Skewer them 2-3 at a time and insert the opposite end of the skewers back into the remaining cantaloupe to hold them steady. Decorate them with Betty Crocker Cupcake Icing and Cake Mate® Decors Monster Mix to resemble little bugs.
Place green apple sugar on small plate. Rim 4 - 8 oz glasses by running a small slice of lime around the rim the glasses just to moisten them, then dip them into the sugar.
Mix apple cider and lime juice in a 1 quart measuring cup. Add food coloring one drop at a time to reach desired color.
Fill the 4 rimmeed glasses with ice. Divide the juice between them and top with seltzer. Garnish with Bug skewers.
