Kroger Trip Yesterday 11/28/09

I took a picture but don't really know how to get it on here so I may add it later when I figure it out.

I didn’t pick up too much stuff since we still have plenty of ham and turkey from Thanksgiving. I did get several good buys though. I ended up paying $16.14 for 23 items and saved $35.06. Not too bad considering that I got 7 grinders FREE after a sale and a coupon (they were on sale for $1.00 a piece and I had a $.50 coupon that was doubled so it made them free) that would have normally cost $10.53 before tax at regular price. I love playing with those things. I got quite a bit of bread (Kroger brand) because my mother has taught me that you can freeze that stuff!! I got two loaves of bread that tasted just fine, we’re eating one now and the other one is in the freezer. Two packs of hamburger buns all for $.49 a piece and two 16 packs of hot dog buns for $.75 a piece. I always worry about it being soggy or something after it has been frozen but if nothing else, I will fix French toast with the bread and probably pizza breads with the buns. Who knows, but I will use it eventually. Also got some brown and serve rolls. I also got three of the CoffeMate Creamers and a thing of Reddi Whip, (I LOVE THAT STUFF). Some Tyson chicken tenders that we had today in a recipe by hubby Mick that was very yummy, (find recipe below) a lemon to flavor it. Some boneless pork chops and a can of pineapples. Almost forgot, I got some Purex Detergent. My total would have been more but I used a catalina (store coupon) that I earned at my last visit for getting batteries.

Approximately 1 pound chicken tenders
1 lemon
2 cans Cream of Chicken
1 box Elbow Macaroni
Peppercorn Medley (McCormick Grinder)
Italian Herb Seasoning (McCormick Grinder)

Put Chicken in Crockpot. Squeeze lemon over and sprinkle with pepper. Pour several cups of water. Cook on low a few hours. Turn temperature up to high and boil noodles. Bring Cream of Chicken soup to boil then reduce temperature adding seasonings then stir in chicken and noodles.

Kroger has their celery on sale this week for $.89. I have been keeping track of the price of celery for the past couple of weeks because we have been on a celery/peanut butter kick at our house. I have been paying $1.74 so this is a really good price for it. I would also like to buy more than 1 since it is such a good price so I will wash one when I get it and shake of the water, then wrap it really tight with a couple of layers of aluminum foil making sure it is completely sealed. My celery should stay fresh for at least a couple of weeks.

Kroger Deals: November 1

There aren't a lot of new deals at Kroger this week. A lot of the same stuff as last week which is good if you missed them. The Krusteaz deal is still going on and I was able to confirm the price of $.17 after the coupon so that is a very good deal that is still going on.

One deal that I'm not sure of the price but would say that it should be pretty good after the coupon is.........

Country Crock side dishes - on sale BOGOF
-$1/1 Country Crock Side Dishes, RP 9/13

That's about all that I see aside from a lot of the same stuff last week.

By the way, I did very well last week. I spent a total of $48.08 and saved $72.14, plus I got back $8.50 worth of store coupons to use off of my next trip. My buggy was heaping full and the cashier was very impressed with me, lol. I love it!!!!

It makes for a delicious, cheap snack.

Pinecone Research-Exciting Opportunity


Okay, so we all know that we like to save money, but how about making a few dollars just for taking a quick 15-20 minute online survey? Well, Pinecone Research is now taking applications to take their surveys. I have been wanting to try this so I filled it out and will just have to wait and see what they say. I really hope I get selected. They pay $3 for every survey you take and everything I have read says that they pay very quick and the surveys are very easy. You do not have to complete a certain amount. Just whenever you feel like it.

They do not always accept applications. Only certain times and now is one of those times. If you would like to try, you can click here and put in your information to see if you’re what they’re looking for. Good Luck!!

Tropical Treat Smoothie

Here's another recipe... This one is a little healthier than the last. :-)

Tropical Treat Smoothie

1 cup cut up cantaloupe
1 cup pineapple tidbits, either out of the can or can cut up yourself
1 container triple berry yogurt, (I use the Yoplait Delights, yummy)
1 cup apple juice
1 tsp. sugar
1 cup ice

In a blender, mix the first five ingredients until smooth. Then, with the motor still running, add the ice, 1 cube at a time. Keep blending until it thickens.

Makes 2 servings.

Quick tip: These are really easy to make the night before and have ready for a quick, delicious, healthy breakfast on a busy morning. You can also purchase extra ingredients when they are on sale, make several and freeze them for up to a month. Just put them in a freezer container, allowing a little room for expansion. When you wake up, set them out to thaw at room temperature and they’re ready to drink in about an hour.

Chocolate Scotcheroos from Family Fujn Mag

I found this recipe that looks REALLY GOOD in my Free subscription to the Family Fun magazine... I doesn't really look healthy but I can't help but share it. We haven't tried it yet but we are definately going to!

Chocolate Scotcheroos

1 cup light corn syrup
1 cup sugar
1 cup peanut butter
6 cups of Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal OR
6 cups of Kellogg's Cocoa Krispies cereal
1 package(6oz, 1 cup) semi-sweet chocolate morsels
1 cup butterscotch chips

Add Kellogg's Rice Krispies cereal. Stir until well coated. Press mixture into 13x9x2 inch pan coated with cooking spray. Set aside.
