CVS, sunrise and easy breakfasts for the visitors and me

hello everyone- days are busy here so I'll just do a short post to catch up

My CVS haul this week- I used coupons on my CVS app as well as manufacturers coupons and $20 in CVS extracarebucks from previous purchases.  My total went from $89 to $6.00 when everything was subtracted.

2 gallons of milk, 2 mens hair trimmers, 2 boxes hair color, 2 deodorants, 2 juice, 3 facial tissue, 4 bags candy, 1 toothpaste, 1 Duo antacids, 1 vitamin C, and
10 giant KitKats because they were on clearance for 19 cents each. 
And I got back $10 in extracarebucks for my next trip.  

I won't be doing any Black Friday shopping but CVS does have some great specials.  If you'd like to check them out before tomorrow's paper arrives, their ads are always published early at www.iheartcvs.com 

My husband had an early morning appointment at the VA hospital in Oklahoma City this week.
(knee troubles )
 We watched a  beautiful sunrise in the rear view mirrors.  But my photo doesn't do it justice.

This week in the USA, we will celebrate Thanksgiving. 
We will eat our big Thanksgiving meal at our daughter's home and we are taking some of the food.  We will have some  company here, in and out,  for 4 days or so. 
That will include our 8 young grandchildren and I want to visit with all of them when they are here.  So I put on my thinking cap to come up with easy and family friendly meal ideas. 
One evening my husband will grill steaks and turkey sausage,  I'll add baked potatoes and a veggie or 2. 
Lunches will be sandwiches-
Breakfasts will be sweet rolls and breads to heat or toast,  bacon and sausage patties that just need needed and orange juice and milk. 

We bought lunch meat, bacon and sausage all on sale at the commissary as well as ready made orange juice.
The sausage was roll sausage that I sliced and cooked, then packed with layers of parchment between before freezing. 
All the bread products are from Aldi.  Aldi's taste good and are a good price,  even when buying a box full . 
There is also fruit, yogurt and I'll add scrambled eggs if possible. 
In a perfect world,  I would be making everything from scratch and fresh,  but to keep my sanity and keep everyone fed,  we are going to easy this time. 

The 4 oldest local grands already had one sleepover here this week- this is fresh from their showers, all wearing the 25 cent Star War pajamas I got on clearance a while back.  Cousin sleepovers are fun and even more fun when dressed alike
they enjoyed some Aldi doughnuts and precooked bacon for breakfast and all gave it their seal of approval. 

this grand is not much of an eater but he sure liked the doughnuts! 

Happy Thanksgiving to all my USA readers
