Snow for Christmas? , Good deals, and Our Menu for this Past Week!


With our weather in our area being warmer than normal, it was kind of neat to find a spring dandelion in the yard.  Husband is loving this weather but I want a little snow for Christmas.  Just feels a lot more like Christmas with snow.  It can leave after that.

Good deals:

I've ran to Meijers a couple of times this past week to get their Daily Deals.  One was for a gift and the other was for our household.  Sometimes the good deals can be used for us!  

Thursday night I bought this sheet set for $22.50!  It has a 500 thread count and deep pockets on the sides.  Perfect!  

I used the santa bucks coupon and the coupon for the sheets (1/2 off).  Both of them are mperks and for that day only.  Husband bought some filters for the car for half price too.  

What we have had for dinner so far this week:

Sunday:   Homemade loaded with everything Low Carb pizza

Monday:  Rosemary and Thyme Baked Chicken and baked sweet potatoes.

Tuesday  Chili made from the hamburger we found on sale at Gordon's at $2.37 a pound this week.  You know I love getting a sale but buying it is half of the job, that putting up and freezing part is work!  

Wednesday: we had enough of the baked chicken left that I made  quesadillas.  I used some green onions that were still growing in the garden and some of my homemade canned salsa to make it.  I found this recipe in a book that was free that I posted on FacebookHomey TGI Fridays Copycat Recipes: Comfort Meals for You, Family, and Friends (unfornately it is no longer free).   I think that's the only recipe out of the book that I will use but that is just me.


Thursday, we had hamburger steak, mashed potatoes, and  collard greens.  It was our first time having collard greens and they were good!  

We had run out of steak sauce for the hamburger steak so I used some soy sauce and garlic powder.  They fell apart more and it wasn't as good but we ate it anyway. 

What I have planned in my head for the rest of the week:

Friday:  Hot dogs (something easy in the hopes of finding an estate sale to go to)

Saturday:  Ham and cheese omelettes and toast (I'm saving all my eggs for this day -some of those hens are taking a break).

How is it been going at your house?

Great deal on the sheets! I'm sure they will be so soft and comfy.
Your meals sound so good. It is going to be a rainy stormy weekend here, and I think I'll fix some soups; hot and sour soup and french onion soup is sounding good to me.
Hope you have a great weekend.

Wow, dandelions in December! We restocked sheets too from a Sam's deal. I am glad to have that done and not have to worry about it the next time we need a set.

Such a great deal on the sheets!

Your meals sound so good, and I love a good hamburger steak. I found some ground chuck on markdown today and made tacos with it. I just love the flavor of ground beef.

As long as the snow doesn't hang around, I'll welcome it. LOL

I hope you have a great weekend, Vickie.

Lana, Sheets are so expensive it feels good to get them for a reasonable price doesn't it? Have a good weekend.

Kathy, someday I'm going to have to try a greater variety of soup. French onion soup sounds delicious. Stay warm and have a good weekend.

Belinda, It probably will be a rainy Christmas more than a snowy one I'm thinking..just one day of snow would make me happy! I'm glad you think the same way.
Have a good weekend.
