71% saved on groceries this week

July 28th, 2008 at 10:05 am

King Soopers was having their Mega Event sale and I saved 71% on groceries this week.

The following were free

2 packages Betty Crocker cookie mix
3 bottles Cattleman BBQ sauce - gave 2 to parents and 1 to brother
1 bottle French's hot sauce

Plus I got Cottonelle TP for 1/2 price
2 Betty Crocker warm desserts for .50 cents each

Colorado Corn on the Cob was on sale 5/$1 so I got 10 and froze them. That's probably going to be the best price I see this year.

Total after all sales/coupons was $12.35

Went to Texas Roadhouse for lunch - used a $5 off coupon.

Finished reading the library book The Bountiful Kitchen by Barry Bluestein. This book tells about how these guys planted fruit trees and vegetables on the terrace of their 19th floor condo in Chicago and then preserved the harvest. Really interesting. I'm putting this one on my list of books to buy sometime. I'm going to check their other book out of the library. Homemade in the Kitchen

    How do you freeze your corn? Do you parboil it first and individually freeze it or freeze it as is? I've wanted to take advantage of these sales and cut the corn in samller pieces before freezing.

    Aleta - I leave the corn in the husk and cut each end off, then take the big outer leaves off, leaving enough leaves to cover the corn. Put in a freezer bag and freeze. When I take them out I take the leaves off, butter and salt the corn, wrap in wax paper and microwave for 3 - 4 minutes. I like my corn firm, if you like yours more done add a few minutes in the microwave.

    Wow, I never heasrd of freezing your corn that way. I husk the corn and blanche mine in boiling water for 9 minutes, then dunk it in ice water for 9 minutes. I then air dry it a little and put it in freezer bags. I might try your way!!

  4. Aleta Says:

    Thanks to both of you. I'm going to try both ways except I think I will boil mine in boiling water after taking the husks off. I can't wait to try it.
