QFC Grocery Basket 10/29
Check out my new enameled cast iron pot!! I mentioned in an earlier post that my old one from the 80s was not big enough so I jumped on the sale at Macy's. Who knew that these things sold for $149.99?? Anyway with the sale and my $20 off coupon I ended up paying $54.99 which is a savings of $95. I also ended up with a new fleece jacket and five Bali brassieres for $100 so I had a good day at Macy's. If you are patient, keep track of your Macy's coupons, and watch the sales you can save a lot over retail.
Are you ready for Halloween?? I'm not a big fan of this holiday but I still bought a giant Costco sized bag of treats yesterday for $15 rather than spend a small fortune at QFC. On our way home we got caught on the bridge. We decided to try out the candy while we were waiting. Good thing we were only stuck for about 10 minutes. After that I decided that the best place to store the candy was the car. No need to even bring it in until the goblins get here.
Okay - let's look at the ad for this week. To be honest it is not very exciting but there are a couple things to mention. Ground turkey is on for $3.99 a pound which would make a yummy pot of turkey chili if you are having people over for Halloween. If it is just you and your sweetie you could make an elegant meal with a couple of Cornish game hens at $3 a piece. My sister makes this killer dish with game hens. Maybe she will share the recipe.
Here are my suggestions for this week:
Spice Islands Spices - 50% off
Peet's Coffee - $6.99/12oz or 10ct K-Cups
Kroger Cottage Cheese - $1.50/16oz
QFC Large Eggs - $2.50/18ct
Tyson Cornish Game Hens - $3/ea
Kroger Frozen Vegetables - $1/10-12oz bag
Farmland Pork Rib or Loin Chops - BOGO
Foster Farms Ground Turkey - $3.99/lb
Pears - $ .99/lb
Fuji or Braeburn Apples - $ .99/lb
Colored Bell Peppers - $1.50/ea
Organic Grape Tomatoes - $2.99/10oz
I also want to mention that if you have been watching the sales and managing your pantry you would have all of the ingredients for chili on hand. All you have to buy is the ground turkey, and frankly, nobody would know that it is not ground beef by the time you get done adding beans, tomatoes, peppers, and lots of spices.
Last summer I bought this very soft king sized blanket at Costco. I thought that it would look nice folded up on the end of my bed. As you can see and I don't know how she does it but somehow Poppy flips that thing around and around and drags it up to the eyelet pillows. Then she makes a cocoon and there she stays - all nice and warm.
