Sweet Movie Deal

So today I took a jar of coins to a Coinstar machine.  Instead of "cashing" them in, I chose to have a e card for Regal Entertainment.  The total was $35.21.  Now here is the good stuff.  That will pay for us to see probably 2 movies, then I have an e card to use for concessions.(this is worth $10.00).  Then I have a Regal card that you swipe when you use it and get points to redeem for free items.  So now I get a free small drink.  So the next movie we see will be FREE!!!!!

Sweet!

Food Waste

I am shocked at how much food I had to throw away today.  It is really a shame.  I had no idea what was in the fridge.  Stocking up is great if you use it up but not so much if you end up throwing it away.  I am ashamed and mad at myself.

I can try to do better from this point on.

Gourmet Hot Chocolate

We have a Keurig and I really enjoy it. Today I put in a Swiss Miss pod. Topped it off with whipped cream and chocolate syrup. I know there are many anti Keurig folks out there but this is cheaper than buying at a coffee shop. Not cheaper than made from scratch but ive not found a made from scratch that I actually like. 

Oh My Delish Chicken

I got this recipe from Facebook and it is good. Put 4-6 chicken breasts in a 13 by 9 dish that has been greased. Top with sliced Swiss cheese. In a bowl mix 1/2 cup mayo (I used Miracle Whip), 1/2 cup sour cream, 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese ( I used a parm mixed with Romano) some garlic powder, salt and pepper. Pour this on top of chicken. Then  add more parm cheese. Bake for 1 hour at 375. Mmm mmm good

Christmas Music from My Church



I thought you may enjoy just 2 short videos of music from my church this morning. I normally don't video but the music was just so beautiful!

This and That

First thing-Happy Saint Nicholas Day!!

Now on to this and that!  I went to Target and purchased some much needed items.  Cetaphil skin cleanser (had a $2 off coupon), Target brand allergy medicine ($1.50 off store coupon).  I used a $5 Target gift card and then applied a 5% off Target RX rewards.  I was hoping to keep this under $20.00 but didn't quite make it.  It's amazing how expensive 2 items can be.

Below is a short video of the products I've used up recently.  As I say in the video.  I know some of ya'll will say big whoop but for someone who used to throw things away willy nilly this is a major improvement.

In all honesty I did throw some items away.   They bothered my asthma and allergies.  Too bad breathing is required to live.  LOL
