I managed to fit all of the sloppy joe filling into the twelve large pepper halves. That was three pounds of meat and two batches of the sauce. I put 8 ounces of cheese in the filling and another 8 ounces over the top.
Today was my other shopping day for the week. On Thursdays I usually go to Walmart and Kroger (Tuesday I go to Food Town and HEB). I didn't get any significant bargains at Walmart today other than a ream of printer paper for which I had a 50-cent off coupon.

I also dug through the clearance bin at Kroger and found a few goodies. I got a jar of ground coriander for $1.37. The label said the original price was over $7.00! That seems a bit steep but I do usually pay at least $3.50 for it. I also found a can of mushrooms for 59-cents. I'm all set for my Thanksgiving stuffing because they had 16-ounce bags of Kroger brand stuffing crumbs marked down to 69-cents (62-cents after my senior discount). I don't eat bread stuffing but my son and husband do and that's cheaper than any sale price they might have around Thanksgiving.
