Let’s shop!

This afternoon, my friend Carrie and I headed out for a sunset run.  It was absolutely perfect out.  For the last couple months, we’ve been regularly working out at least 2-3 times per week…running…walking…and heading to the Y on our free passes. 🙂  It’s unbelievable how a workout partner can motivate you to go a little bit faster and a little bit further.

Yes, we’re running so fast that it blurs the picture…not. 🙂

When she got here, she had two things I was excited for:  the Sunday paper and Bisquick.  It seems like everyone I talk to is coupon clipping.  So, I thought I better get on the bandwagon after hearing about all the killer deals.  The Bisquick was for our pancake dinner.

After our run, it was goodbye to Carrie, hello to coupon clipping.

After looking through what I needed/wanted, I made a quick grocery list which included:


  • Almonds (w/coupon)
  • Blueberries
  • Asparagus
  • Apples
  • Organic Oranges
  • Deli Meat


  • Toliet Paper (w/coupon)
  • Bath Soap (w/coupon)
  • Hand Soap (I splurge on Bath and Body Works-I just love it.)

Now,  for the ingredients of a couple new recipes!

Giada’s Pastina w/Peas and Carrots

*Some of the ingredients I already have…I will post the full recipe when I try it out!**

  • Chicken Stock
  • Frozen Peas
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese
  • 4 oz Mascarpone Cheese
  • Fresh Basil

How Sweet It Is:  Chopped Chicken Salad

  • Tomato
  • Avacado

*Note:  sometimes I will omit dairy products because J is lactose-intolerant.  Boo to that!

Tomorrow, I’ll head to the store and get going on one of these yummy recipes!  Oooo I can’t wait!

What are you shopping for this week?

    • Seriously! I heard of some people actually being paid by the grocery store because they have saved so much in coupons and deals their grocery bill is negative!
