THURSDAY'S SHOPPING
 

I'm a little late posting this because I just got my computer back from the repair shop yesterday afternoon. I got way behind on a lot of things due to not having my computer for nearly two weeks. Thankfully it's back and working fine again.

This morning I made a batch of Easy Corned Beef & Cabbage using a can of corned beef that I bought for just 99-cents at Aldi a couple weeks ago. I was surprised to find that it was a bit different than the brands I've used before. I've used Libby and Armour brands which are both very soft and they fall apart when stirred into the cabbage. The brand I got from Aldi is more like beef "Spam". I was able to cut it into small cubes and they held their shape during cooking.

I also want to mention that I've changed my email address. Updating all of my accounts took me several hours last night but I finally got that finished up this morning. I don't want to have to do that again anytime soon. Anyway, if you want to contact me by email, you can get my new address on my main site HERE.

THURSDAY'S SHOPPING
 

The bacon pieces were the best deal this week. I'd never seen it sold that way before so I was taking a chance that it would be good bacon. I could smell the smoky aroma through the wrapping which was a good sign. As soon as I got home I fried up a few pieces to taste and it's wonderful bacon. I divided it up into 1/4 pound portions and put it in the freezer to use in recipes.

I know that I said that I wouldn't buy more ground beef until I'd used some of what I have in my freezer stash but I made an exception this week. Food Town had one package marked down and I was planning to make burgers anyway. So, rather than thawing some meat for the burgers, I went ahead and used the fresh stuff. Burgers are always nicer made fresh rather than with frozen meat.

The decaf that I buy for Jerry from Walmart has gone up quite a bit since the last time I bought it so I think I'm going to start buying it at Aldi. It was $2.78 at Walmart for a very long time (years) and now they want $3.48. Both the regular and decaf coffee are cheaper than Walmart's prices at Aldi, at least at the moment. Of course it's always a gamble and the next time I need to buy coffee for Jerry, I'll likely find that Aldi has raised their price. We shall see.

My computer is in the shop for repairs so I'm using my husband's computer. I'll post my shopping list for this week after I get my computer back.
