Weekly Groceries

I know I'm not supposed to be
grocery shopping in December
I had 2 catalina's that would have expired
(and we can't have that now can we!!)

I also saw that Kroger had boneless skinless chicken breast on sale for $1.77/ lb.
My favorite local butcher is closed for the winter (and I missed the stock up sale). I visited another butcher near me and chicken breast was $4.79 /lb. ahemmm, choke, puke. I don't think so, I mean I know it's good chicken BUT $4.79/lb COME ON, GET REAL!!!!!

Okay Okay I'll quiet down (grin!)
So needless to say I'm not paying that, so we're eating Tyson Chicken for the winter! $1.77 per pound I can do!!!!
I got 7 packages (about 2 meals per pkg.) and even used some .55/1 MQ so I got about 14 meals for only $20. !!! Having chicken about one time per week, should get us 3-4 months down the road!

I also snagged a free pizza, Ritz for .99 cents, hot chocolate for .50 cents, and manager's special Eckrich hot dogs for .49 cents!

A good trip including 4 gallon milk for only $32.xx

Next week maybe I'll be able to stay out of the store!!
((You just wait Meijer will finally have a
spectacular sale, and I'll be forced to go!!!!))

Wordless Wednesday...

Anyone else have a boy who constantly
takes off his shirt...
Even this time of the year?????

We were in the car yesterday, I looked back and
he had taken off his coat and shirt.
He just won't accept the fact that winter is coming SOON!!!

In His Word Wednesday


Exodus 9:16
But I have raised you up for this very purpose, that I might show you my power and that my name might be proclaimed in all the earth.

2 Corinthians 5:5
Now it is God who has made us for this very purpose and has given us the Spirit as a deposit, guaranteeing what is to come.

Philippians 2:13
for it is God who works in you to will and to act according to his good purpose.

2 Timothy 1:9
who has saved us and called us to a holy life-- not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time.
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?
Even just words of encouragement. I would love to hear from you!
Just post on your blog, then come back here and sign the linky below.(You are welcome to use my banner if you'd like)
You can even just leave your 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!!


btw -- if you remember praying for Lenore (my BIL's mom)
Shannon at the Peer Review has an awesome update here.
It's a real miracle and she's set to come home Dec. 10th after
being in the hospital since July!

Cinnamon Rolls!!

Yea my mouth is watering too... Especially since
the kids polished off the last of these last Friday!!
Time for me to bake another batch!!

If I can make these, so can you!!
Even if you've never tried before. They're really not
that hard or that time consuming. most of the time
spent is just allowing them to rise!

And ingredients...
All you need is water, yeast, sugar,
oil, salt, eggs, flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, powdered sugar,
vanilla, milk, and butter
It may look like a lot but they're all normal cheap everyday
ingredients and I bet you have all of them right now!

Okay so now that I've had our pep talk.
Here's how to make them!

Since I got the recipe and directions from
Amys finer things
You mine as well
go here and read her excellent post
on how to make these
(check around here site, she has some other variations too!)

I figured up the cost and I came out with
around $2.00-$2.50 for 3 dozen rolls
This makes a lot of mouths happy around here
and it makes some very cheap breakfasts/snacks!

(Oh just so you know, these freeze really well.
So you don't have to eat all 3 dozen within a few days!
although it's not hard to do!!(grin))

Verse 4

For you make me glad by your deeds, O Lord; I sing for joy at the works of your hands.

Menards 11-29

Menards has 3 possibly 4 FREE after rebate items this week!
This ad is good through 12-6

To see last week's ad go here
It's also good through 12-6
Mini Light Set -- FREE after $2.00 Rebate -- limit 5

Automotive Air Freshener -- FREE after $1.00 Rebate -- limit 4

2" Handi Clamp -- FREE after $3.00 Rebate -- limit 4

Possibly FREE...

2010 Big Coupon Booklet -- This is the one I'm unclear about --
it says in the ad Save $10. after Rebate-- and the book says
$10. Each -- So if I'm reading that right, it would be FREE???-- limit 10
Anyone else know if this is for sure???
It's on the back cover...
Edit -- I just got back and the books are
$35. - $10. Rebate = $25. (I didn't get one!)

St Ives Lotion -- $1.97 after $1.00 Rebate -- limit 4
($1./1 MQ in 11/15 SS Insert = .97 after Rebate and MQ)
sorry I edited this (my brain wasn't working when I suggested
it might be free after$1.MQ!!

Razor Knife -- .49 cents after $2.00 Rebate -- limit 2

Softsoap - .98 cents
(some coupons out for this - mostly home mailers)

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.
To learn all about Menards and how to send in
their rebates go here!

Just leave a comment if you have a question
or see another good deal..

Meijer 11-29

Another very unimpressive ad from Meijer (imo)...
