What I Really Bought

April 22nd, 2013 at 02:05 pm

My actual purchases were not too different from my list. I bought Club crackers (my favorite), a big combo box of Nature Valley granola bars (on sale), a can of pizza sauce, Cascadian fruit & nut granola (on sale), blackberries (on sale), ice cream, a bath pouf, cat litter ($1 off coupon), dry cat food (on sale), and a package of file folders. $40 in all. They say I saved $6 on this trip.

What I left off was the wine and the pop. When I saw the blackberries I couldn't resist, so they were an add-on.

Other spending -- I got a $5 prescription and spent $3 this morning on a muffin and coffee. I do tend to treat myself on mornings when I've had little sleep and getting up is rough.

Later today I will buy next month's train ticket.

I had a nice afternoon with the grandsons in the park, and then at their house playing Yahtzee. One is really too young for the game, but loves throwing the dice. The other got two Yahtzees! I think he's a natural!

    Really you're doing great. Since you have a weakness for muffins, why not make up a cake mix substituting mashed banana for1/4 C liquid and pour into muffin papers or loaf pan to bake. Freeze half the muffins for next week, treat yourself to home made muffins or slice of banana loaf for about $ 2. for 12 muffins

    Snafu's muffin idea is a good one. I make homemade & freeze all the time. SO yummy and easy to get a rotation of different kinds. Although blueberry is my fave!

    I have not been successful at making muffins I like. Maybe using cake mix is the answer.
