Soup and Sandwiches

walked with mom at Walmart

Yesterday I made a big pot of Olive Garden's Pasta e fagioli soup. The recipe came from the Top Secret Recipe books. Very good. I have a lot left over for the week. I substituted egg noodles for the ditali pasta and didn't add them to the soup. Instead I kept them separate and will add the soup to the pasta as I'm ready to eat it. I find that the pasta in the soup doesn't taste that good 4 days later, but if I keep them separate the taste/texture remains good.

I had a good grocery day. Several good deals. Safeway had Salmon for 4.99 lb, organic baby carrots $1/1b and celery $1/lb. They also have a deal thru Tuesday that if you buy 5 Hillshire Farm deli lunchmeats at $2.00 each a $10.00 off your next purchase coupon gets printed at the checkout. So 5 packs of lunchmeat for free.

King Soopers had Campbell's Tomato Soup at .50 a can and I had .40 off of 4 coupon which was doubled. So I got 8 cans for .40 cents each. They had Kuner's canned beans for .44 cents. Do I got 4 of those. And I got 3 packages of Pizza rolls for free after coupons.

Between the Safeway lunch meat deal and the King Soopers tomato soup plus the Pasta e fagioli soup I made I see a lot of soup and sandwiches in my future Smile

Walgreens has Mennon 24/7 deodorant free after rebate and I had a $1 coupons so I made some money there.

Got gas at Albertson's for $2.75 which is the cheapest around here by about a dime. Plus because I got more than 8 gallons I got a car wash for $1. Got the biggest chunks of dirt off, but then drove home in the melting snow and got the car dirty again - sigh

Went to Red Robin for lunch where I had a $5 gift card that I got for free for buying a $25 gift card as a gift at xmas.

All the little bits of money saved on each individual purchase add up.

Did a load of laundry, boiled my eggs for breakfast and now I just need to chop my veggies for lunches and dinners and I'm ready for the work week.

I finished reading my book Shadows on the Soul by Jenna Black. Supernatural/Romance. Good.

    I found out the same thing with most starches in soup. Sometimes that's the point of it - potato or split pea soup, for example. But I do that with rice, barley, orzo, noodles of all kinds. I find that the soup keeps better in the refrig also.
