Free Pan

January 7th, 2015 at 06:24 am

Yesterday I got my free Cuisinart frying pan from a grocery store promotion -- with the help of our own Deacon's Wife who saved a bunch of stickers for me! I got to meet her for the first time in real life yesterday, and I hope I don't embarrass her to report that she is just as sweet and lovely in real life as she is online!

I stopped at three different stores in order to get my pan -- apparently it was such a popular promotion that many stores ran out. I was glad to find it at store #3, which happened to be my home store. While I was there, I bought my ten items for the week: granola bars, Kraft mac & cheese, cream of chicken soup, butter, spreadable margarine, wine, pantiliners, garlic, onion, and a container of celery and carrot sticks. Generally I don't get the prepared veggies, but I decided to go for convenience this time. I'm planning to use up some of my turkey in a pot pie this weekend.

The pan is a 10-inch open pan with no lid and a tough non-stick surface. If I like it, I'll get the bigger size at Bed, Bath & Beyond. It looks good, but I'll know more when I use it.

I did not plan to drive today, but we are having wind chills of 10 to 20 below zero, and I could not face walking to the station. I figure in weather like this I have to give myself a break. I also bought breakfast on the way - $7 - just to help me get through the morning. I slept very poorly last night so this will be a somewhat challenging day. I woke up at 1am and never really fell into a deep sleep after that.

    I'm not surprised Laura is sweet in person! I think you did right by taking your car, frostbite can occur so fast in these cold temps.

    So cool that you guys got to meet up!! We too had to spend money because of the windchill--a cab to and from daycare.

    Sometimes that money is entirely worth spending. Sounds like this time it was for sure!

    Oh! I'm jealous that you got to meet each other! Remember to tell me if you're ever in New Mexico...

    How nice to get to meet up with Laura Smile
    Our schools were closed today due to the temperatures. Yours sound worse than what we had, so driving probably was the best decision.

    What sort of promotion for a pan?

  7. Looking Forward Says:

    What fun for both of you! I parked in the underground parking myself today--too cold to walk.

    LAL, our local grocery (Jewel) gave away stickers -- one for every $10 spent -- that we could save to exchange for Cuisinart pots and pans. I (with Laura's help) saved 100 stickers for the frying pan.
