Diane, also best wishes for the day.
I did my st pat's meal as everything cost about $12 to make and the club was doing a meal for 9 plus tip. I did stop by and they had leftover corned beef they were selling for $5 for a large bag...they told me it would fill a quart bag(which is what they were selling, but gave me a full to go container, which filled a gallon bag!!) It is now portion packed in 3 oz servings in the freezer. Dogs and I have been snacking on boiled potatoes and carrots for the past 3 days! I won't give them the cabbage as they have a habit of sitting down by me, dropping a SBD, then walking away. And let's just say, they smell worse than any human being, even my ex!!
Lots of dollar sales this weekend so stocked up. Spent $60 and got:
5 lbs strawberries ($1/lb)
3 lbs fresh mushrooms ($1/lb)
2 pasta sauce($1 @)
4 frozen microwave pizzas($1)
6#shredded sharp cheddar($2/lb)
1 gal milk 1.49
2 yellow squash
3 old bananas
1 tub 2 of cottage cheese and sour cream
2-1/2 gal of OJ @ $1 each
3 tomato paste
6 stewed tomatoes
8 cans of dog food on sale for 40 cents each as they are getting a new brand and clearanced this one out-
and 2 10 lb bags of dry food at 30% off.
the fruit will not last so the bananas and strawberries that are leftovers will be indiv frozen for smoothies or protein shakes that I make as meal subs in the warm weather. I already have some blackberries and raspberries that I bought at a similar 10 for 10 sale in the freezer.
Mixing the forzen berries with some milk, sweetner, a couple ice cubes and proteing powder is an inexpensive meal that is just so decadent and only costs me about a dollar!!
