Weekly Groceries - Just the Basics!

I did it again... I only stopped at my
local small time grocery store this week!

Luckily for me 9 of the 11 items I bought were on sale.
Which made them only slightly more expensive
than I'm used to paying!

For some reason my cheese slices didn't make the picture,
but anyway the 12 items I bought cost me $19.12

I also bought a couple more gallons of milk earlier.
My total this week was around $25.

Next week I'm looking to make a normal
bigger shopping trip.... We'll see if that happens!!!

I'm not sure, but I think that makes my
monthly total around $240. or so.

We're off this morning to buy
more cute little chicks!!

The Roman Road...

Romans 3:23
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God

Romans 3:10
As it is written: "There is no one righteous, not even one;

Romans 5:12
Therefor, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all men, because all sinned.

Romans 6:23
For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 5:8
But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 10: 9-10
That if you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you confess and are saved.

Romans 10:13
for, "Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved."

If you've never looked at these verses and prayed,
I encourage you to do so!

If you are saved and have never marked them in your Bible,
it's a great tool to lead someone to Christ!
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!!

Recipe -- Homemade Waffle Cones

My sister had a waffle cone maker for sale at our Garage Sale.
It didn't sell so I traded here some stuff and took it home!!

I wasn't sure if it would be useful or just another gadget
that takes up space in my small kitchen...

Turns out.... I LOVE IT!!!

What's better than a ice cream cone in the summer,
especially with a homemade waffle cone!!!!

And my favorite part...
It only takes 6 normal kitchen ingredients to make them!

Here's the recipe in case you're interested!
BTW -- Amazon has the waffle makers here...

3 eggs
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup melted and cooled butter
2 Tablespoons pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking powder
1 cup all purpose flour

**Beat eggs-- add sugar and beat till smooth.
** Add cooled butter and vanilla
** stir in baking powder and flour
** drop onto hot sprayed iron
** wait 30-40 seconds or until light brown

It will come out flat-- just roll it up in a cone shape!
This recipe made me around 20 medium size cones or bowls.

You can also flip a mug over and shape it
around the bottom to make a waffle bowl.
so cute!!

I'm experimenting with using the waffle iron to make
homemade soft tortilla's. It worked last week and
hubby loved them. I'm totally making the recipe up so I
want to try it a couple more times before I share!

I'm pretty sure between tortilla's and waffle cones
this handy maker will get a weekly workout!!

Anyone else have one of these??
If so what else do you use it for??

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.

their rebates go here!
