Valentine's For Miss Sarah's Class

Image
THIS Plus THIS Equals THIS So now, you know what our Valentine's for Miss Sarah's Class look like this year, LOL! Here is how we made the Pops. I bought mini candy canes after the holiday, on clearance. Took them out of the wrappers and placed on a cookie sheet.   Baked them for a few minutes at 300 degrees and added sucker sticks quickly.  Then we let them cool and bagged them up - with curling ribbon too!  Easy Peasy! What are you doing this year?

Shopping at Copps Today...

FFFFFFFFFFFREEEEEEEZING Cold this morning! My car didn't warm up by the time I had gotten to the store as I live too close. The dashboard told me it was a whopping 3 degrees. The joys of winter in Wisconsin, LOL! OK - I wasn't thrilled with the ad this time around and had shared that with you already. But I did something fun - a shopping challenge by a friend for the food pantry! She gave me $20 and wanted to see how much I could get out of it - in items on the list for our church's food pantry. I should have bet lunch or something on this -- she thought I might get 10 things. (She doesn't have very much faith in me, LOL)! OK - here is what I got out of the below summary for the food pantry: 31 boxes of Hamburger Helper (normally $1.79) = $53.94 10 bags cookie mix (normally $2.26) = $22.66 That was $76.60 for $23.40 - but I got back $5.10 on the two FREE veggie oil on the Betty Crocker Cookie promotion...so I am UNDER the $20 and am tossing in Wednesday's

Farm Fresh Eggs...in Columbus!

Image
Do you live in Columbus? Would you love Farm Fresh Eggs - at only $1.50 a dozen? I can hook you up! :) My friend Cindy has a farm and layers.....and eggs. We have had her eggs.  Yum! Farm fresh eggs are SO different that what you might be used to - many eggs in the grocery stores are already up to 3 weeks old! Farm fresh eggs are fluffier when scrambled, and taste A-MAZ-ING. She does work during the day (they have an active farm with cows) so you can shoot her a note at flowers3act@sbcglobal.net and keep in mind that she might not reply until evening.

Homemade Taco Seasoning

Image
I shared my Tossed Taco Salad recipe yesterday and didn't think to share the Taco Seasoning Mix recipe! How rude of me!! Here you go -- SUPER easy to make, it keeps well and saves you money. A set of Tupperware snack cups is easy to set out and make this times four - which is what I do. Taco Seasoning Mix 2 tsp. instant minced onion 1 tsp. salt 1 tsp. chili powder ½ tsp. cornstarch ½ tsp. crushed dried red pepper ½ tsp. instant minced garlic or garlic powder ¼ tsp. dried oregano. (to make it spicier - add 1/2 tsp.cumin) Combine all. Place in snack cup. Makes 2 TB. To Use: In a pan combine 1 pound cooked shredded chicken or ground beef/turkey (1.5 - 2 cups gravel), ½ C water, 2 Tbsp seasoning mix. Simmer 4-6 min. Makes 8-10 tacos...burritos...enchiladas...one taco salad...etc.
