corn chowder with shrimp

April 2nd, 2011 at 02:56 pm

Coupon total ytd = 12.86
RX total = 10.78

I made this recipe a couple days ago and since it had shrimp in it, I didn't think the leftovers would be that good. But I thought it was good when I warmed it up for the second day so it's a keeper. I only made half the recipe and I didn't use the red peppers or heavy cream. There wasn't near enough liquid for a soup so I added 2 cups water. I think next time I might make it with polish keilbasa though. That sounds better than the shrimp to me and I could probably freeze it.


I went to Rosie's last night with parents so dad could get his prime rib special. At xmas I bought 10 $10 coupons for $8 each. So everytime I use one I save $2. Rosie's punches a card every time you eat there and when you get 10 you get a free meal. Dad keeps all the cards and last night we split the free meal, he gave me $2.50. So I saved another $4.50 towards coupon total. I spent $7

I went into Barnes and Noble and used the last of the gift card I got for xmas on another Patricia Briggs book. I ended up owing $2.50 cash. I went to Border's after that, they are right across the street from each other. I got 2 more Patricia Briggs books and used a 33% off coupon on each one and paid with my reward gift cards from Discover, so no out of pocket money. $8.36 more in coupon savings.

I finished reading my book The Next Ex by Linda L. Richards. Mystery - pretty good. A new author for me.

    Yum, that sounds good!
    Have you ever read "Moonstone"? It is an old classic. I think you'd like it.

    no, I haven't read that one. I'll check if the library has a copy - thx

    I looked it up and it's "The Moonstone" by Wilkie Collins. I'm thinking of reading it again because I can only remember that it was a good read.
