Hello all. I haven't blog in so long so I'll just jump in with the most recent things.
Today, no grands are here and I've been cleaning and scratch cooking. I'm cooking a 7 pound chicken in my big crockpot and I made a batch of homemade noodles. This will make lots of food- we can eat, share and maybe freeze some.
Yesterday was a different kind of day. Our 15 month old grandson was with us and he was not in a happy mood. So, for an easy supper, I baked a new product, Freezer To Plate. It was so easy! Just put the box ingredients, water and chicken pieces in a baking pan, cover and bake.
It is low calorie, very easy cleanup and comes in 4 flavors. I bought ours at a military commissary but my daughter said she saw them at Walmart. There are $1 coupons for this on Coupons.com and in this past Sunday's paper.
I've only tried this flavor and it's good. My husband and I both liked it.
One of the best things about living now is we can be flexible and have choices about so many things. We can do slow cooking when we choose or we can still serve our family good food with easy products.
This week is a good week at CVS. I've made 2 trips and this is most of what I bought but some candy, drinks, deodorants and granola bars have already been consumed or shared and aren't in the photo.
I think I spent $24 cash with lots of coupons and cvs deals. And I have $31 in ExtraCareBucks for next week.
But I shook my head when I saw a home in my neighborhood already decorated for Halloween. 😱 seems a bit early to me..................
