Chicken breasts typically come in double-lobed pairs (“butterfly”) and will have small attached amounts of fat.” [source]

Gringo's Gift CardsIt’s no surprise that this family loves Gringo’s; we dine there every Wednesday with our sweet C and we get the same thing. every. time.

So, what do you get people who know what they like? A gift card of course!

Through December 31, 2013, Gringo’s is offering a Bonus $10 Gift Card to be used between 1/2/14 and 3/31/14 with each purchase of $50 in gift cards. So, as you can see below in our annual pie graph of dining expenses, a little under 25% of our total is to Gringo’s…

Gringo's Pie Chart 2013Trivia: If we purchased enough gift cards to use one $10 bonus gift card each Wednesday Date Night from 1/2/14 to 3/30/14 we would have $720 in gift cards and bonuses… which might get us through half of they year…

Holy cow we eat a lot at Gringo’s!

Today, I went to get a pack of M&M’s from the candy drawer and this is what I opened up to:

Mice

I am SO sad. All of my Hershey with Almond down the trash bag… and the Hershey kisses and the tootsie rolls. WHAT A WORLD!!

I sent the pic to our amazing exterminator, Jeff at Superior Pest [281-753-2677], and he has verified that the teeth marks are from mice and not Anole lizards as I wished, haha.

I know it has happened within the last week because my Sweet C went to the drawer just last Friday for some gum to chew without any eyebrows raised.

This is what Dak think’s about the whole situation after I’ve texted B and C the pictures incriminating the mice who encroached our glorious candy space. This is exactly why C and I have been polling for a cat for the past year, no mouse would have gotten away with this with a cat in the house!

So… If you find some great deals on candy… Let me know!

This ground beef product is 93% lean and 7% fat

Zaycon Bulk Meat Events

Time for another round of high quality meat sales in our area by Zaycon Foods, have you tried them out yet? Seeing as the calendar reads that Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner, what better way to get prepared for your company and try out Zaycon Foods at the same time. It’s win-win and you will not be disappointed with the quality and taste.

I hit them up for their hickory smoked bacon when they were here in January and let me tell you, I was shocked, surprised and SUPER happy with my decision to try out another one of their fantastic meat selections. I shared the cost of the bacon with my Mom and two other people from my couponing board on Facebook, so the price tag wasn’t too killer with people to split the pot… I think having 36# of bacon is great, but is a bit much for a family of 2.5. The bacon is natural and comes from local Southern and Midwest states; they are hickory smoked, medium sliced and sealed into twelve packages of 3 pounds each which make it very convenient to share the cost with friends and neighbors… or not ;)

Zaycon BaconFresh Hickory Smoked Bacon - This bacon has had the same award winning cure since 1959, cured for a minimum of 24 hours, and hickory smoked for at least 7.5 hours, the smoking process includes only actual hardwood chips burned in the stocker, this creates the color and flavor that makes this cure so special, in addition to color and taste our bacon has been carefully hand trimmed from each belly for consistent sizing.

The Zaycon team is so efficient, you don’t even have to get out of you car or truck to pick up your purchases, they walk up with your order, put it where you ask and off you go to share, sauté and save.

Cypress, Texas area pick up is Monday, June 17th! [Orders must be placed by 6/16/13, or before it is sold out]

  • Hickory Smoked, Medium Sliced Bacon $3.49/lb [36# units, $125.64/unit]

TOMORROW is DECEMBER, people! Can you believe how fast this year has just flown by?! I can’t because I turn 30 in 49 days and want to savor every moment of my 20′s, my youth. Heh.

This week I felt like this:

Cracker Jacks

Which explains why I have to post this…

Put up ALL the Groceries

…because I was putting away my last box of diet coke and remembered to take a picture – yea, that’s not happening now. I have not been to the grocery store for normal “people who aren’t living on the stock pile” food in about 2 weeks, so I figure it’s about time. When your sick, the last thing you care about is a coupon or a deal, am I right? The stores pretty much owned me, but I now have 5 chocolate bars and 2 pints of Blue Bell ice cream to devour when my tummy stops rumbling. Without further ado, the matchups~>

Total Saved $24.26 or 34%

Randall’s

2 Betty Crocker Cookie Mixes @ $2.99 = $5.98 – B1G1 = $2.99 or $1.50 each

Total Saved $29.04 or 42%

I also went to Walgreen’s on Monday, it was not a glamorous trip – me, Sprite Zero and Pepto chewies. I don’t even know where I put the receipt, but you get the idea, right?

An amazing thing happened this week – an HEB opened it’s doors right at the front of my neighborhood and I am super happy [I still love you Randalls']. I was considering letting the crowds die down before heading over there – so maybe a week or two since Thanksgiving is next week – but we all know, that won’t happen. If you follow me on Facebook, you saw my thoughts… if you don’t, you should:
