What a special treat to be able to visit with our friends Bob & Faith. When we were in training with Wyciffe many years ago, they tutored our daughters Anita & Jerusha while we were in classes. They have blessed us much over the years. I meant to take a photo of them but we were so engaged in good conversation that I forgot! Instead, here is a photo of the blueberries that they freshly picked this morning. Faith says that they last a good 10 days in the fridge and can be frozen. This is a very nice blessing for us as well as the Taco Bell lunch they treated us to. What a good day so far!
Another treat to have 4 grandchildren tonight . I made a super kid-friendly meal so we should have clean plates.
Elijah, Ana , Evangeline & Jude should get dessert !
Today I baked:
Butterscotch Icebox Cookies- (only I used maple flavoring instead of vanilla)
1 cup butter
2 cups dark brown sugar
3 ½ cups of all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used maple)
1 cup chopped pecans
- Cream butter; add and cream well. beat in eggs, then add sifted dry ingredients, vanilla & nuts.
- Shape into rolls, wrap in waxed paper and freeze or put in refrigerator until firm.
- Slice and place about an inch apart on greased cookie sheet. Bake 12 minutes at 400° (200º C)
John and I ordered on-line a large pizza with 1 topping from Pizza Hut for $5.55 + tax ($5.83 total price paid) and got a free movie rental at REDBOX using a coupon code I got from a blog I follow about saving money.
We’ve also used coupons saved for us by our kids Jesseka & Greg for a buy one, get one free Whopper at Burger King.
The hot dogs at SAM’s club also have helped stretch our entertainment budget.
We now realize that we have to hold our treats (eating out) to about once a week to maintain our budget and our waistlines.
We’ve never eaten out so much! It’s kinda fun…
This is something I came across recently while investigating what is going on in the USA with food prices. I like ‘stocking-up” and having plenty on hand for people to eat at our house. Since I have kids in the Lynchburg, Virginia area, I checked on the availability of Zaycon Foods in this area. Raleigh NC, Ramona CA, and just about anywhere can have this opportunity. If Zaycon Foods hasn’t had a sale where you live, you can log on and if enough people are interested they will come.
This is definitely something I would/will be interested in if I live or plan to live in the USA again.
Here is a Lynchburg Virginia upcoming event:
Lynchburg, VA Chicken Event
Wednesday, April 10, 2013
8:00 am – 9:00 am
First Christian Church
3109 Rivermont Ave.
Lynchburg, VA 24503
$1.79 per lb.
100 % natural chicken breasts with no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients
• Comes directly from the processor and has never been frozen
• Sold by the case — 40 lbs in each case
They hold these national Chicken Breast Events only twice a year, so be sure to stock up. The total for this box of 40 lbs would be: $71.60
Here’s how it works:
then select your location
See when they will be bringing meat, fish or poultry to a selling location in your town.
You actually order on-line and then pick it up at the location near you.
Sounds like a really good deal to me. Buy the box of fresh meat, & take it home to freeze in quantities for your needs.
