My seeds are growing like weeds!

Tuesday, April 6, 2010

The mini greenhouse and salsa garden I started about 10 days ago are doing great! Here's a picture of the greenhouse:

The lettuce on the one growing really well. The cilantro is just starting to sprout, though you can't really tell from this picture.

Here's the salsa garden:

To be honest, I can't quite tell of this is the peppers or tomatoes. Either way I'm happy to see them growing!

Waste not strawberry shortcake

I picked up some strawberries last week when they were on sale, but was so busy I kept forgetting to eat them. They were almost on their last leg, so I decided to use them up before they spoiled. Here's my impromptu version of strawberry shortcake:

Wash the strawberries thoroughly.

Next them all in half and put them in a saucepan with 1/3 cup of white sugar and a teaspoon of vanilla:

Cook them over medium heat for about 15 minutes, until they are syrupy:

Serve over ready made pound cake with whipped cream. YUM!

Super Easter lunch and shopping!

Today was a really fun day. I did a little house work this morning, followed by lunch with hubby and his parents and then of course a little shopping. We had lunch at Mattisons Riverside, and it was such a perfect day for it. I (of course) had sushi (pictured above) The first stop was CVS. Here's what I did this week:

Complete Contact Solution- $8.99
-$7.50 ECB's
= $1.49 + tax oop
Earn 8.99 ECB's


Tampax Pearl Multi Packs x 2 @ $7.99 = $15.98
Skintimate Shave Gel- $3.99
Dawn Dish Liquid- .99
= $20.96
- BOGO Tampax Q ($7.99)
- .50 Dawn Q
- 8.99 ECB
= $3.48 + tax oop
Earn 2 and 3 ECB

Total spent- $6.67
Total saved- $27.01

After CVS we went to Walgreens. I got lots of great stuff there today:

Kotex U Tampons- $3.49
Colgate Clinical Toothpaste- $3.99
2 lip balms on clearance @ .25 each- .50
-4 RR
-$1 Colgate Q
-$1 Kotex Q

-$1 Kotex Q
-$ Tide Q

I spent a little more than usual out of pocket this week, but I got lots of really good stuff and I earned 13 RR for next week.

Finally, we stopped at Kmart. They are doing Super Doubles right now, which means they will double any coupon up to $2 in value (so a $2 coupon becomes a $4 coupon). This event is quite different from past events, though. You have to sign up for their Shop Your Way Rewards Program, which offers shoppers 1% back on all purchases, and because they can track your purchases with these, they have limited the super doubles to 5 items per person per day. Luckily Kmart is very close to my house, but if it were at all out of my way I doubt I would participate. Anyway, here's what I got today:

Reynolds Aluminum Foil (50'Recycled) - $2.99 - .75Q Doubled = $1.50
Pedigree Dentastix x 3 @ $4.29 - 3 x $2Q Doubled = $.29 each ($.57 total)
Windex - $3.00 - $1 Q Doubled = $1.00
Snuggle Dryer Sheets x 4 @ $4 - 4 x $3Q's = $4.00 total

Total Spent- $7.07 + Tax
Total Saved- $19.75

My pantry, freezer, and fridge are STOCKED right now! I'm going to sit down tonight and plan my meals for the month of April, which helps me stay on track by taking away the temptation to eat out and allowing me to plan in advance (i.e. pull things out of the freezer to thaw).
