Weekly Groceries- Pantry Challenge

I did pretty good this week at Walgreen's
This trip cost me .81 cents!!
I love cashier's who are excited that
you're paying under a dollar!!

Best part is they gave me back
$13. in RR
My cashier was really excited when these
bad boys started popping out!!

I got 2 meters which were free with the Bayer coupons.
then I got $5. RR for each one and another $3. RR
for buying both at the same time.
The Revlon make up was free and I used
a $2. RR for the tomato sauce and milk
(.99 cents for the milk, it was close to expiring)

All this made my total .81 cents and I got $13. back
in Register Rewards to use next week!
I'm hoping for a really good week.
I'll let you know how much I get for the $13. next week!

Then it was on to a quick stop at Meijer...

Since I'm trying to stick to my eating from
the pantry challenge ($100. for the month) I mostly got
produce and dairy items at Meijer. (Bananas not shown)

It totaled $19.73 for 19 items

I'll keep a running total for the month of
all grocery trips I make...

Walgreens .81 cents
Meijer $19.73
CVS -- $4.58 (2 milks)
total spent so far...
left to spend $74.88

I'm hoping to only need milk next week.
and I'm hoping that Walgreens will pull
through with some good deals!
We'll see!!!

Wordless Wednesday...


Hard to see but he also markered his face and
his wonderful brother helped him with his back...

You should have seen him later.
His arms were completely orange.

I decided I better for go the picture...
I figured that's why he did it again, he thought he was
cute since I took a picture the first time. (grin)!

Now you see what happens when I teach the
older 2 kiddos school for even 20 minutes!

Anyone else have this problem?!?!?!?

In His Word Wednesday

Do not be Hasty...

Proverbs 19:2
It is not good to have zeal without knowledge,
nor to be hasty and miss the way.

Ecclesiastes 5:2
Do not be quick with your mouth, do not be hasty in your heart to utter anything before God. God is in heaven and you are on earth so let your words be few.

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!!

Crock pot Rice...

I tried rice today in the crockpot.

I discovered over the weekend that even my 11 yr. old
loves rice. That makes it an item that everyone LOVES!!
It's like finding a gold mine!!

It was super easy to make and mostly I'd call it a success.
I do need to tweak the recipe and add more
water and chicken flavor but it was still good!

Here's what I did and what I'll change for next time.

Spray crock pot with cooking spray and
dump 2 pounds of rice in (about 4 cups).

Mix 2 cups of water and 3 tsp. chicken base flavor
(next time I'll use 4-5 tsp chicken flavor)
(can also use chicken stock instead)

Dump in crock pot.
add 1 more cup water (next time I'll add 2 more cups)
***that will make 4 cups water total***


Add butter.
4 TBSP - 1 Stick
(I used 1 stick)

Cook on high for 3-4 hours

Mine was pretty done in 3 hours
But if there would have been more liquid
I would have let it cook 30 more minutes.

It got crusty around the edges so I think the extra
water should take care of that problem!

Over all everyone ate some for lunch and
thought it was really good. (Even Hubby!)

If you don't use all the rice. Just cool it and put it in containers
or freezer bags and stick in the freezer.
When you're ready to use it just add a little butter
and microwave it!

Great way to make your own minute rice!

Special thanks to Mommy Snacks for the recipe.
Check it out here!
