Miss MoneyPenny learned something today. When you pull a 35 pound bag of dog food out of the back of your CR-V and you drop it - don't try to catch it. Luckily it was time for my monthly chiropractor visit so I crawled in to see Dr. Calah and she worked her magic on me, so I was able to actually stand upright. I still have to turn my whole body to turn my neck but I'm on the mend and after a couple more visits I'll be like new. Lesson learned. Dog food doesn' get hurt if you drop it.
Anyway, on to the QFC ad. It is not a bad sale this week, but even the sale prices cause me to catch my breath these days. Having said that, check out this 5 quart Crock-Pot for $19.99 which is a pretty good price. I bought my first crockpot with S&H green stamps in 1974 and used the heck out of it. It was the old kind and the crock was not a separate piece, so washing up was a challenge. They've come a long way, baby, since then.
Here are my picks for this week:
C&H Granulated Sugar - $3.50/4lb
Gold Medal Flour - $2.50/5lb
Spice Islands Spices - 50% off
Silk Pure Almond milk - $2.79/64oz
Tully's Coffee - $5.99/12oz or 12/ct
Simple Truth Organic Broth - 3/$5/32oz (we make our own but if you run out)
QFC Butter - $2.29/lb
International Delight Coffee Creamer - $2.79/32oz
New York Strip Steaks - $5.99/lb
Draper Whole Chicken - $ .89/lb
Russet Baking Potatoes - $ .50/lb
Broccoli or Cauliflower - $ .99/lb
Fuji Apples - $ .99/lb
Navel Oranges - $ .99/lb
Hass Avocados - $ .99/ea
Roma Tomatoes - $ .99/lb
I'm going to take advantage of the sale on whole chickens this week. I have one left from the freezer and I have it thawing in the fridge. I'm gonna cook it in the crockpot. Stay tuned for pictures.
As you can see things are not looking too good for this kid. After spending about six weeks in the bathroom cabinet, I took it out and gave it a trim and a good jolt of Miracle Gro. If I don't see signs of life, out it goes to live again in the compost. I have this little beauty handy and will be potting it up soon. You can't have too many amaryllises (sp??) around in the dreary winter, can you??
