The Pioneer Woman

Okay, tonight for dinner we had a yummy dessert "Pots de Creme". My sister in law, Kim, yes my sister in law is named Kim, we call her Kim Beverly to differentiate, or Nana differentiates by calling me Big Kim, not sure how I feel about that, I'm sure it refers to the fact that I'm older, not bigger, but, well I am bigger, but really she's just taller, so wouldn't that make her Big Kim? Wait, what was I saying? Oh, the dessert. Kim Beverly showed me the website where she found said decadent dessert, The Pioneer Woman. I will stop my rambling now, and provide the link. Take a look around her site, and enjoy!

That's What I'm Talking About...

In the crazed world of couponing, I am a novice at best. Mostly because our Sunday paper has NO coupons in it. So I have to hunt and peck for coupons. And hunting and pecking I am doing. Coupons aside, let me also mention that since we have moved to Bozeman, I have terribly missed Walgreens. I used to clean up at Walgreens when it came to coupons and coupon stacking. I was told by some that CVS offers similar couponing joys. I have not found that to be true. Until today. It wasn't a big haul. But it was a cheap one. Here's what I did.
*I paid for my prescription in the pharmacy.
*My printed receipt had two coupons on it.
1) $2.00 off one Stayfree product.
2) $2.50 Extra Value Bucks (to be used on most general merchandise)
*So I picked up a pack of Stayfree that were on clearance ($2.09) and a bag of Easter candy that I thought was $2.50. When I checked out, the candy rang up for $2.00.
*Since I wanted to use both receipt coupons immediately, I grabbed a pack of .99 gum for a total of $5.08.
*After deducting my two coupons I paid .58. On THAT receipt was printed another $2.00 Extra Value Bucks coupon. So I walked back to the candy aisle and picked up another bag of $2.00 candy, for free!
So for fifty-eight cents, I walked out of CVS with two bags of Easter candy (the good kind, mini-mars bars), one pack of Stayfree, and a pack of gum. For 58 cents! Now that's what I'm talking about!

A Few of My Favorite Things

(Please sing to the tune of "My Favorite Things")

Forget the raindrops and whiskers on kittens,
My favorite things now were all in this kitchen.
Cute kids, and good friends, and Sinatra songs,
I could have stayed in here all the day longs.

There was an auction for someone named Zack,
Joel bid on pizzas donated by Cusak,
We were invited to join in the fun,
We watched creations from scratch until done.

At the Sayers,
We had dinner,
And good company,
I'll always remember these favorite things
And the cupcakes, too
We chewed!
