Went grocery shopping on Friday and got this little lot:
I paid $64.90 for that lot; must admit it doesn't look a lot for the amount of money spent? I used $8.50 in coupons. Bought the three 4 litre bags of milk as they were on for $3.99 a bag and it's the "fancy" milk with a longer expiry date; it being December 23rd. They are normally $6 + a bag; even regular milk is around the $4.50 a bag, so this was a super deal, no need to buy milk for the next three weeks. Best deal, I guess was the Egg Creations on the right of the photo, were on for $1.50 each and had $1 coupons. They're good when making quiches. All the Pillsbury items were on for $2 had a 50 cent off coupon's for everyone, so paid $1.50 each. The cinnamon rolls we'll have Christmas morning for breakfast. I like their biscuits for this recipe and the cookies come in handy when you have unexpected visitors this time of year.
When I am in the other town this week, I want to pick up paper towels in Zehrs as its on sale for $3.99 a six pack, but am waiting until I have to go there later in the week. I am also hoping the $5 Zehrs gift card will arrive this coming week, so I can use that along with a $1 coupon so I can keep my grocery shopping total under $75. I would have price matched with No Frills but they didn't have the six pack in stock. Managed to pay only $1.179 a litre on Friday for gas for the car, which was the lowest I have seen it in a while.
On Friday night we had something for supper I haven't had in years, mince/ground beef on toast. You know when you make mince and gravy with veggies for a shepherd's pie, well instead of putting potatoes on top we just put the meat mixture over slices of toast that had been buttered. It was so good and easy, plus it was a great way of using up the ends of bread and dry bread. Reminded me of when I lived at home with my parents, as that was something my mam used to make.
This Christmas song is also one of the most requested Christmas songs on the radio. Make sure you listen to all the words:
