I didn't have much to buy this week what with no cooking to do until today. Our company left yesterday afternoon. So, I splurged and got a few things that I wouldn't normally buy such as the MiO drops. Jerry has requested pancakes this weekend which is why I bought the Bisquick and milk. A while back I tried a pancake mix from Aldi that only needed water and it was horrible. The pancakes were like sponges. I know that Bisquick makes good pancakes because I've made them that way for many years.

THURSDAY'S SHOPPING
 

The price of heavy cream has gone up once again and it was only a few weeks ago when they upped the price the first time from $3.57 to $3.79. For some reason I'm having trouble getting cream lately. The HEB that I went to on Tuesday didn't have any in stock. The store that I went to today had one left, probably because it was so far back in the cooler that nobody could reach it. It was a struggle to reach it but I was determined enough to do it.

I splurged on the Steak-umms. They were $5.99 at Aldi last week and marked down to $3.99 this week. It's a 20-ounce package. It's been ages since I last had them and like using them to make a stir-fry with bell peppers, mushrooms and onions then topped with cheese. It's like a Philly Cheesesteak stir-fry.

I went slightly over budget this week because I bought the Steak-umms.

We're going to have company for a few days so I won't be shopping or blogging next Tuesday, which is my birthday. I don't want anyone to worry about me if they don't see anything posted next Tuesday so I'm letting you know the reason now. I also won't be posting next week's menu on Friday because I don't know what or where we're going to be eating while our company is here. I was told that we would be going out to eat and not to worry about cooking. Sounds like fun, doesn't it?

Tuesday's Shopping



I wouldn't normally buy ground sirloin but I needed some fresh hamburger to make burgers today and that was the only package that was marked down. It was only $1.99lb and just enough for three nice burgers. Hopefully they won't come out too dry because of the low fat content. Jerry probably won't mind but I'll probably slather my burger with bacon grease to boost the fat.

I also wouldn't normally buy glasses at the grocery store but I couldn't pass up this amazing deal. I found two pairs of reading glasses in the clearance bin for a dollar each. I usually buy dollar store reading glasses but these are MUCH nicer quality and that's because the regular price per pair was $17.99!!! So, I got $36 worth of glasses for two bucks!
