Success!!!!

This week:


Made a few more jars of salsa to add the the collection.


I tried out a new venture this week: Apple Butter. I was never that fond of apple butter until I had it freshly made, still warm, at a festival last year. With some apples from the neighbors, Kaden and I had fun with the nifty little apple tool from pampered chef. I put all the ingredients in the crock pot for several hours and we love the results. On warm biscuits....Delicious!!! Definitely something I will make more of!!

And now for my biggest Success of the Week: My Walgreen stop today. I have totally fallen in love with all the great deals you can get at Walgreens and CVS!! I think today was my best deal so far.


These are all of the products I got today. (plus a 2nd pack of Extra Gum--Khara already had that in her purse, and a 2nd roll of LifesSavers--it doesn't take 3 kids long to down those) By using lots of coupons, a $6 gift card, and several "Free after mail-in-rebate" deals, I will only have paid $11.85 for ALL!!! WOO-HOO!!!! I'll take shopping trips like this any day! :-)

Hey loved the plug for Pampered Chef :) I'm a Pampered Chef consultant :) Did you use the Apple Peeler/Corer/Slicer? I use it to make Apple butter too. In fact, I'm supposed to be getting apples today from one of our farmer neighbors. So it looks like I have apple butter canning in my future too!
