Hubby purchased the book The Dog Ate It: Cooking for Yourself and Your Four-Legged Friends many, many years ago. It contains recipes that are fit for humans and dogs at the same meal. Now, those of you that read this blog may know that our pooch, Max, is extremely spoiled. He does each PetFresh at least once per day, but his other two meals are people food. So, hubby figured he would give this book a try. The recipe above is based on one in this book.

Notes:

• I love this meatloaf pan! The loaf lifts right out when you use this pan, and the excess grease stays in the bottom.

• We use lean ground beef (90-93%). The original recipe says beef, pork, chicken, turkey or veal ground or chopped can be used to make this meatloaf recipe. While we have combined pork and beef, we have not used ground chicken or turkey to make this loaf, and never just chopped meat – always ground.

• We used oatmeal. The original recipe says bread crumbs. We have used gluten-free breadcrumbs on this recipe.

• We use dehydrated vegetable flakes as they are cheap and easy to find. The original recipe calls for seaweed, sea kelp or seas vegetable. We have ised sea kelp in this recipe, and there is no discernible different in taste or consistency in my opinion.

• The recipe calls for two cups of cooked vegetables. I’d suggest carrots and broccoli as that is what we use.

Sunday Morning Shopping

Sunday Morning Shopping


A few weeks ago I posted Sunday Morning Shopping making it very clear that I may not be out shopping on Sunday ever again (or at least not every week). This is a reader driven post having little to do with me – except I may run out to get whatever good deals you all post in comments. 😛

I also added an email notification for additional comments. Definitely read this post so you know how to opt in or out.

Ann’s Sunday Morning Shopping

Hubby and I were out bright and early this morning. No particular reason, we just were up early and so headed out to shop.

The first stop was Walgreens. I had a $1 RR expiring today, and I figured I’d get the Nutrition Peanut Butter for $2.99 with a $3 RR. The shelf was empty at my local Walgreens, so I asked the MOD (who is all sorts of awesome) for the scoop. He said that a truck was coming in Tuesday with at least 50 of each flavor, so stop back Tuesday afternoon! This is a great deal, and I may very well stop in. In the meantime, I needed something to use my $1 RR on, and it was Hubby to the rescue!

Walgreens Order

(3) Zyrtec (5ct) $6
(6) Arizona Tea 2/$1 (w/in-ad coupon)
= $23
– (3) $6 Zyrtec coupons (4/28/13 SS)
– $1 RR
= $2

At CVS the sad news about the bag tag program ending was confirmed. 🙁 At checkout I received $1 ECB for using the tag today (was not my fourth shop), and $1 in ECB for what I “paid” for the bag tag. So, next time you shop CVS make sure you scan your bag tag at check-out and you will receive a $2 ECB

From the CVS Kiosk today we (almost all of these were Hubby’s) received these CVS Coupons:

• $2/$8 Cosmetic purchase expires 5/12/13
• $1.50/$5 Deodorant purchase expires 5/12/13
• $6/$20 Facial Skincare purchase expires 5/12/13
• $3/$10 First Aid or Footcare purchase expires 5/12/13
• $2/$8 Greeting Card purchase expires 5/12/13
• Beauty Club $5 expires 5/12/13
• Dove, Caress, Lever Bar (6-8pk) or Dove Body Wash (18-24oz) $1 expires 5/5/13
• Maybelline Cosmetic $1 expires 5/5/13
• M&Ms Sharing Size, Snickers 2 Go or Twix to Go 75¢/2 expires 5/5/13
Mars or Hershey Bar 99¢ expires 5/5/13

CVS Order

Snickers Bar 99¢
– 99¢ CVS coupon
= $0

This was a great stop… Zero order and a $2 ECB from the ending of the bag tag program, and $5 ECB from the beauty club!

The other stop we made this morning was Tops. We actually spent a lot of money there, and it looks like we got very little. That is because Tops is offering a 4x gift card promo, and one of the featured cards is Tim Horton’s! We bought $200 worth of gift cards in $25 increments which make for nice keep-in-the-card or present amounts. That $200 earned us 800 in gas points which equals 80¢ off per gallon to 30 gallons or $24 off! Gas and Tim Horton’s is something we buy frequently (ok, the Tim Horton’s is far more frequent), so for us this was a no brainer!

I may end up back at Tops this week. We are down to three freezers and have no freezer room for the Marie Callendar deal. The garage fridge/freeze combo seems to have finally bit the dust. I guess we will take a look at the National Grid refrigerator program unless I can (unlikely) talk Hubby into the budget-busting Gladiator.

All-in-all I was very pleased with our shopping today. Anytime you can get a bonus for something you buy regularly, and have the bonus be for something else you buy regularly – that is a great deal!

How was your shopping this week? Did you go Sunday Morning Shopping? Did you find any great deals? Anything we should all run out for? Detail folks, details!
