    by , 08-11-2008 at 08:48 PM
    Yesterday we were invited to a friends house for dinner and some poker. So, my Salisbury steak will have to wait for another day. We had glazed ham, macaroni & cheese, shrimp cocktail, chips & salsa, and some alcoholic beverages. Mike's Hard Lemonade and Smirnoff Ice. Dh and I have 5 between the two of us. It was fun. We played poker, I am not that good. Because I thought I had 3 pairs at one point and bet quite a bit only to find out I had 2 pairs. Also, I had 4 of a kind and I ...

  4. Dream Shopping ie. No Money Spent

    by , 08-09-2008 at 06:49 PM

    Needed for the week
    6 lbs of hamburger @ $1.99/lb = $13.86 (some were more than 1 lb each-will use 2 lbs this week and the rest will go into the stockpile.
    Roasted Potatoes ...
