Cakes and Coupons

Key Lime Sour Cream Poundcake

My first Cakes and Coupons Seminar last night went great!! In a  little over an hour, almost a dozen (including my supportive husband) coupon newbies and i discussed the hows, wheres and whys of coupons.  I am so thankful that the class will continue on-line as long as anyone needs help in a small private group on FB. The cake? It was a hit!! I love the taste of a homeade-not overly sweet, buttery sour cream pound. I also love the tart coolness of a creamy key lime pie. The two combine beautifully! I wrapped up lots of babycakes for people to take home!! We all shared a large cake and cold drinks. Call or message me if you have a some friends who would like me to bring Cakes and Coupons! to you! 8-12 people make for a good size class!

Spinach and Feta Pierogies with Beefy Alfredo

Anyone who really knows me knows I have been honing my couponing skills and also that I love to cook good meals for my family! This is a filling, healthy one "pot" meal that only cost about a buck a person.. Last week Mrs. T's Pierogies were on sale BOGO(buy one get one free) AND I had a couple of $1 off I grabbed 2 boxes. I choose the Spinach and Feta thinking they would be yummy and more nutritious than the plain potato and cheese ones. Everyone in my family(well-except my 3 yr old-but he will come around) loves spinach! I also still had some Philly cooking cream on hand~ bought when it was on sale(used a coupon.~was very inexpensive). I have never cooked with pierogies-but they are cute half-circle shaped pastas(think ravioli) stuffed with creamy mashed potatoes and other good stuff. If you don't like ground beef, or can't eat it, try ground turkey or chicken...or even shrimp!
1 lb. ground beef
1/2 mild onion(slice thin)
1 clove garlic-minced
1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon Tabasco hot sauce(opt)
a couple of slices -cut up(about 1/4 cup) any cheese you have on hand-I had Colby Jack
1 container Philly cooking cream(garlic or Italian cheese)
1 box Mrs. T's Pierogies (any flavor)-find in freezer section

Pour the pierogies into a large dish .Cook the onion and garlic a few minutes. Brown beef and drain. Add in the milk, cream, and cheese~ stir well. Season with black pepper, Tabasco and salt to taste. Add onions and garlic back to pan. Mix well to combine. Pour over pierogies.{at this point-you can refrigerate and bake later) Top pan w/ foil and bake at 350 for 40 minutes. Serve w/ a cold salad.if desired!

  • Stacking…this is when you use a store coupon and a manufacture coupon on the same item. Publix will take 2 coupons on one item.
Example: Juicy juice-cost is $2 on sale-use a manufacture coupon for $50 off and a Target coupon $1 off-OOP (out of pocket) cost will be 50c.

·        Internet coupons-If you hit the back arrow or backspace-you can usually print 2 of the same coupon. Most sites allow a maximum of 2.

·        HARVEY’S is the place to save on meat! You can often buy ground beef for $1.59/lb! They also have GREAT wed specials and often good deals on produce.

·        all*you magazine. This magazine is wonderful y’all! It is full of great coupons, bargaining tips and recipes. It is available only at Walmart or even cheaper~get a monthly subscription!
·        Rain Checks-here is the deal-LOTS of people are trying to save money-when a really good deal is out there-the item you want may be sold out.
Go to customer service on the way out and ask for a rain check that you can use when that item is restocked-hold on to any coupons that go w/ the deal! Watch you coupon expiration date!

Most people make a list of the groceries they need and head to the store. What you have just done is make a list of everything that is not on sale. All groceries have a "rock bottom low price", Most areas they follow a cycle roughly 6 weeks long. That means if we see a rock bottom price this week then buy enough of that item to last 6 weeks.

A Tale of 6 Cereals

                                                A Tale of 6 Cereals
Once upon a time there was an unaware Mama who had three growing boys who she could not fill up. She tried to feed them oatmeal. They did not eat it. Next she pushed apples and bananas; they ate but were still “hongry”. Mama then bought cereal~ lots of cereal. They liked that, but the unaware Mama spent $27 bucks on 6 boxes in only a few weeks. At $4.50 a pop-the cost of just cereal was nuts!
The broke Mama took herself to a couponing class and learned to buy cereal the smart way!!  Only one trip to buy 6 boxes saved her a WHOPPING TWENTY-ONE DOLLARS!

The cereal was on sale Buy One Get One (we are down to $2.25) and she used a Target (store) coupon for $1 off each box, (down to $1.25) and a 75cent off 3 boxes Manufacture coupon. (down to $1.00)-per box!!!
That is $6 for 6 boxes. The now AWARE and happy Mama spent the whopping $21 she saved on a new pair of shoes. Woo-Hoo!! J

Just keep swimmin', swimmin', swimmin'......(Dori the blue fish in NEMO)

"Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.  Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.  Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.  Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts.  Persistence and determination are omnipotent."     Calvin Coolidge

  Develop good character, focus on the big picture and stop making excuses. 
Today is the first day of the rest of your life.
Live. Laugh. Love.

Logan being silly

What a funny picture of my sweet Logan. Lately, he has been seeing how much he can get away with. Basically, just being plain naughty,  This picture is special to me. Only about an hour after taking it, Logan got nearly all that pretty wavy hair cut off. That is right....OFF.  He already looked just like his daddy-now he really looks like his daddy's childhood pics.  It is super short-a tiny bit longer on top that the side/back. When I get over the shock of it, I will take his picture. It is so odd-but he looks so different-that he almost seems like a little impostor. He is still a cutie-pie and we are all crazy about him.

Keep A Sense Of Humor

When everything else fails...LAUGH. While it is easy to laugh when everything is going good, it is important to keep laughing in times of adversity. Nothing can improves improves emotional health like laughter can.  It relieves stress and helps to put things in perspective.
 When things go wrong..often life is teaching us a lesson we need to learn. Be grateful for times that you wish had not happened, for these times can help you grow into a better person.Ask yourself, "Did I actually fail. or did I have unrealistic expectations?" Try to not fall into the trap of blaming others and at the same time, try to not beat yourself up all the time.  It's okay if you fall~we all do~as long as you learn something as you get back up. Get back on your feet. Keep trying. Keep laughing. Keep living.
