Ran errands this morning - library, post office, walgreens, safeway and food pantry.

I dropped two bags of grandma's books at the library for donations. I'm not sure how come they came to me, but mom handed me a box and said I could do what I wanted with them. They were like new, but when I checked on they were only selling for .75 each. It's not worth my time to list and deal with them for that, so I decided to just donate them.

At walgreens I spent $10.33 and got back $11 in RRs. I got 3 6-packs of Dove men's soap for $6 each. I used 3 $4 coupons making them $6 plus taxes. When you buy $18 worth of Dove you get a $6 RR back. When you buy $20 worth of merchandise and use your AARP card you get an RR of $5 back. So I borrowed mom's AARP card and got 2 bags of Russell Stover sugar free candy to get over $20. I'll give one of the packs of soap to mom as thanks for using the card.

At Safeway I got a head of celery, a huge jicama and 4 tomatoes. I used a $1 off $5 produce coupon and a $2 off produce coupon that I got from buying Wish Bone salad dressing. I spent $2.80.

I've been reading about some recipes for jicama and decided to try making jicama chips tonight for supper. I'm going to try both frying and baking them to see what they are like. I will have enough leftover to make a few more recipes too. They didn't have any small ones so I could just try it.

At the food pantry they told me they just keep getting more and more customers. I would have thought it would be better by now, the economy isn't that terrible around here.

I finished reading my book The Linz Testament by Lewis Perdue. Adventure - pretty good.

    Oh, can you keep us updated on how your Jicama recipes go? And what it tastes like? I've always been curious but never bought one.

    I like jicama, peeled, raw in a cole slaw.
