The Tomatoes are Coming Up!

I have some plants growing and I am excited because they are looking so healthy! I have never grown my very own tomatoes before, and well...they are growing! Here are some photos of my baby garden in planters. I wish I had a real garden, but this will do for now. Someday!

I have cherry tomatoes, rosemary, boxwood basil & oregano.

Food in Real Life

I got on a blog! Haha...for reviewing gross food, but it's still fun!

Homemade Garlic Dill Pickles...OH yeah!

Thank you My Kitchen Moovement for the recipe!
These were so easy, and so delicious! My friends RAVED about how I am the best pickle-maker in the world. Even though this is the first time I've ever even dreamed of attempting to make pickles. They were definitely garlicky and dill-y. And VERY crisp and tasty. If you are even considering trying to make pickles, this is the recipe to use. YUM

I am soooo a Krazy Coupon Lady!

I have been following the Krazy Coupon Lady..and this has been my most successful trip yet.

Soooo..I went grocery shopping on Thursday night.

I spent $105.23 and saved $88.36...thats 45% savings!!!

I got so much too....12 lbs of ground beef, 4 boxes of cereal, 3 bottles of bbq sauce, 2 containers of pnuts, 16lbs of cat food, 6 lbs of cheese, 2 jars of spaghetti sauce, 2 loaves of bread, 2 (10pk) flour tortillas, 1 pk hot dogs, jelly, sugar, 3 cans of soup, caesar salad dressing, doritos, 2 can refried beans, 8 pk of paper towels, 12 double rolls of toilet paper, 3 bags of goldfish crackers, 30 pk of freezer bags, 1 can of italian bread crumbs.

I purchased 56 items for 105.23 = average of $1.87 per item (and some of my items like 16lbs Purina Cat Chow Indoor formula was $12.99.

Anyway..just thought I'd share...excited to have a super-stocked pantry. (By the way....don't be concerned about my diet, we already had a bunch of boneless skinless chicken and I buy all of my fresh produce at the local Farmer's Market.)
