January Pantry Challenge is over... But stay tuned for February!!!
This week I spent Meijer -- $13.99 Aldi -- $22.91 ------- Total $36.90
A little higher that I was hoping but I forgot I have a birthday girl and needed ice cream for both sides of the family! So right there you have $10. 1 bucket probably would have been enough but we'll just have some to get us through February this way!
I did get lots of fruit and I'm hoping to be able to get fruit like this every week! We've decided to start snacking on fruit instead of junk, like we sometimes do! ***
So if you'd like, here are my totals for January... Week 1 -- $25.12 Week 2 -- $14.80 Week 3-- $44.40 Week 4 -- $36.90 ----------- $121.22 If you remember my goal was $100.
I blame my going over to the Pepsi deal at CVS!! I bought 12 -12 packs for $20. Right there is my overage... But such a great price!!! (I know it's junk, but still!)
Anyway I'm making my goal in February $100. again!! It would be awesome to be able to do this and get lots of fruit in the process!!
My "Computer Fund" has about $160. after only 1 month!happy dance! (this is the excess of our grocery/gas budget!)
Psalm 51:10 Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
What has God been teaching you lately.
Do you have a prayer request? Do you have a Bible verse that has stuck out to you?
You can just leave your link, words, or prayer request here as a comment. We'd love to know how to pray for you. If you don't want to elaborate just let us know you have an unspoken prayer request. We can still pray for you because God already knows!!
If you think I'm bombarding you with bread recipes, you're right!!!
2 months ago I tried my hand at this Basic Homemade Bread Recipe. Since then I've tried many bread recipes. Once you get started it's hard to quit! They're all soooo yummy!! I think I'm a bread making addict!! If you missed any of them here they are. I'll be adding more as I try more recipes! Who knew I'd be making bread and actually loving it!! (Not me!!)
I say all this to encourage you to try it. I used to be scared of bread making and yeast too.. (little secret-- It's not scary or hard. Oh and it doesn't take all day either!!)
Hope you don't mind here's another one, and it was another hit at our house!!
Homemade Dinner Rolls
1 pkg. dry yeast (1 T.) 1 1/3 cup milk (105*-115*) 3 to 3 1/2 cups flour (can use whole wheat) 3 T. Olive oil (I used vegetable cuz that's what I had) 1 Tablespoon sugar 1 tsp. salt 1 Tablespoon melted butter
Directions -- Dissolve yeast in warm milk with sugar (I used a whisk) Stir in 1 cup flour, oil, and salt. Beat until smooth. Stir in enough remaining flour until just slightly sticky. (May need to knead the last bit of flour in)
Cover and let rise in warm place until double about 1 hour
Heat oven to 400* degrees. prep a 12 cup muffin pan with spray.
Punch down dough and fold over a few times. Pinch off 1 inch balls of dough and quickly roll in the palm of your hands. Put 3 balls in each muffin cup. Brush with melted butter.
Bake 12-15 minutes until light golden brown. Immediately remove from pan
When you purchase the freebies, you must purchase an additional $10. of non-rebated items per transaction to qualify for the rebate. You can get as many freebies as you want per transaction with only one $10. additional purchase. ((**You can get a $10. Gift card if you don't need anything right now!**)) Your rebate will come in the form of a Merchandise Check. Which means you must spend it at Menards, (I just use mine for more freebies!)
It's been reported that you do not have to spend the $10. and you will still get your rebate. Since the ad says you're supposed to I still think we should as to not take advantage of the program. You can use your own judgement! Thanks for letting us know!
You do not need to purchase any additional $$ if you are only getting the rebated items that are not free.
