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%

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:

Dear HEB,

This week, you rock my socks because I purchased That Green Sauce at Hatch week and… I… Am… Loving… It!

That Green Sauce - HEB

It is not for the faint of heart though, a delicious combo of jalapeno and poblano peppers, is of medium heat and gives a sweet kick to begin and a savory spicy punch at the end.

It was a struggle of a purchase, at $4.00 for an 11 oz jar, it wasn’t exactly cheap. However, the many uses and small amounts needed to satisfy my taste buds are worth every penny! I used one teaspoon to top each of our stuffed peppers two nights ago, two tablespoons for dipping Chees-Its [yum!], and for lunch, today, I drizzled one teaspoon to my cheese pizza.

Is your mouth watering yet? I know mine is!

You can find this delicious sauce on the chip aisle year round or with the Hatch presentations going on now at your local HEBs.

PS. Thanks, HEB, for the warning label on the back, which I did not read until half of the jar was gone. It reads: WARNING: Can be addictive! Pour it on tacos, eggs fajitas or just use it as a salsita (dip) with chips… again and again.

This morning I cruised on over the Randall’s and HEB after a tortuous 10-miler with my running buddy. I am preparing for My C to get her braces on Monday, so you will notice lots of smoothie and soft foods in the mix. Since I did two huge trips I will point out the great deals with coupons and leave the rest for show. You can bet you bottow dollar I purchased Diet Coke [B2G2 at Randall's] and bread [$1.88 at HEB], but they did not make it to the photo shoot, I was too pooped for fitting them in.

Well, we made it through another week – Congratulations! My big girl job is in the last month of the fiscal year and things are about to get pretty crazy. Thank goodness I have a pretty decent stock of meat and pizzas ready… it’s going to come in handy!

This week I only took it to HEB because they have the best price on quality bread and a decent sale on Swiffer products. You see, I am preparing [cleaning up] for my brother-in-law to come over tonight, him and B are headed to Dallas tomorrow morning to see The Oklahoma Sooners whoop up on Texas. We were watching the pre-game show a few nights ago and they said the Sooners are hot to trot this year, Texas needs to be prepared. B’s father’s side of the family live in Oklahoma… I’m a Coog – Go Houston!

Before we pick up on shopping, I would like to thank all of you for praying for my sister, she is feeling a lot better and has an appointment with an opthalmologist to check out what is going on with the floaters in her vision.
