Week in Review 9/19

25 Sep

All-in-all this has been a pretty good week, but today has been extra-good.

The menu plan pretty much went to heck this week. We did have the bbq beef sandwiches last Sunday, and pierogies on Monday, but no chicken. Tuesday we had grilled cheese and tomato soup. Wednesday we had Church’s chicken, so that was our eat out night. Thursday we had leftover chicken salad from a special lunch at school. Friday we had rotisserie chicken from the grocery store up the street. Tonight we are having the stuffed shells. Here’s a peek at those, pre-baking.

But, today was great. Every year for Christmas, the school board gives us gift cards to Target. I also get gift cards from parents around Christmas or the end of the year. I had $50 to Target, $50 visa gift card, and $40 cash from Christmas. I have been eying a set of red kitchenaid pots and pans forever, at least since we bought the house, maybe even since we got married. Well, I decided this year I would keep my gift cards until my pots and pans were on sale, since my old set was really starting to look icky, and it was nearly impossible to keep stuff from sticking. Well, they were FINALLY on sale this week! I bought the pots and pans, a spoonula, and silicone-tipped tongs and only had to spend $2.64 of my own hard-earned money. I saved over $35, so I am pretty proud of myself. I’m not quite the couponista that Christina and Kay are, but I loooove saving money!

I also used a gift card at Home Depot and got three really pretty mums with a buy two get one free coupon, so there is even $2.65 left on that gift card. Here’s a few shots of those through the rainy door.

    I like those pots, too. I could use a new big pan with sides like you got. (That’s a hint to any of my siblings who might read this.) And that’s a really good deal, too!

    I love those pots! We recently got a new set as well. The ones we registered for for our wedding were really cheap and were on their last legs after like 2 years. In hindsight, I wish we would’ve gotten something more expensive. The ones we have now I think are called “green pans” and I found them on clearance at Target.
