Banana Bread French Toast

This is one of my absolute favorite recipes. I had this dish at a restaurant and had to come home and figure out how to make it! It is the easiest thing I've ever done....

You can use premade banana bread or you can make your own.
All you have to do is slice the bread into about 1/4 inch slices and dip them into a mixture of egg and milk, cook them over medium heat in a skillet with just a tough of butter (or whatever your favorite thing to use) and I usually dust them with a little cinnamon and powdered sugar while they are hot! Something else I like to do is add sliced bananas on top and if you like a little of your favorite syrup, but I don't need syrup, it's great without it!


Pedicure I got this morning!

I went this morning to a place called Nails Baby! to get a pedicure. It was very clean and organized and the people there were very friendly and totally knew what they were doing! If you are in North Austin area, they are off of Parmer lane next to the Kolache shop.

They are located at 1701 Parmer Lane suite 106 and you can also find them on Facebook!

Walgreen adventure

So...this morning I went to Walgreen's just to get their Arizona Tea they had on sale for 2 /1.00, but there was a limit of four. I asked the guy up front if I used 5 coupons, could I get 20 of them at the sale price, he said no problem, I'll just scan the same coupon. I got 20 Arizona Teas for 10.00 and 5-32 oz. Gatorade's for 5.00 and I also got 2 candy bars for 1.00, so all in all, I saved 16.57 on my total bill!! It's nice to know that some places will let you slide! I am going back tomorrow to get 20 more.....

Recipe of the day!

Mom's Chicken Enchilada's

2 chicken breast
1 pkg. cream cheese
1/2 cup salsa
1/4 cup of chicken stock (left over after boiling chicken)
grated cheese

Boil chicken breast until done and save that 1/4 cup of stock when done.
After chicken cools, tear into strips and add back into pot with cream cheese, chicken stock and salsa.
Mix well
spoon chicken mixture into tortillas with a little bit of the grated cheese.
After rolling the tortillas up into enchilada's, pour whats left on top, top that with remaining cheese and bake at 350 degrees until golden and bubbly.
I usually cook Spanish rice and re fried beans with this.

This is one of the favorites at my house!!

Thinking of adding recipes to my blog

What would you all think about adding recipes and tips to my blog? It's something I love to do and would love to share and swap recipes and ideas with other people...

Where to go from here....

Did all of my shopping yesterday, didn't save a whole lot, but did decide that HEB and Walgreens are my favorite places to shop. I admit that Wal mart is cheaper to shop at, but they don't have a very good meat department and I'm kinda weird about my meats! My husband and I try to eat organic food as much as we can, but you can't always get organic meat at Walmart. Now...HEB has a wonderful selection of meats and they will take any and all coupons you have. They do not, however, price match against Walmart due to them being super cheap on everything. I think I would rather pay a little more and get the best products available to me. I would save as much as I can at the other stores who do price match, stack coupons, or just have really great deals! Walgreens will allow you to stack your coupons and that is awesome because I can save a truck load of money on things that are really needed. CVS is also good about their in store coupons and the deals they have every week. So....the point is...find the best store for you to shop at and use what you've got in coupon knowledge to get the best deals you can without compromising what you feel is best for you!

A few deals for today....

Here is a list of the coupons that are in the July issues of magazines. Don’t throw them away before you look for coupons!!

Where is your favorite place to grocery shop and why?

Where do you like to shop for your groceries every week and why? I ask because I am investigating stores that are local supporters versus national chains that get their products from anywhere. I'll be back later today to add to this conversation.

Something to talk about...

Something else I am doing is talking to certain, small town businesses and asking them if I can blog about their companies and in return getting discounts, cash, or freebies......what do you think of that? My husband is on the phone right now with our local HEB talking about how we can save even more money at their stores and about blogging for them.

My adventure with coupons!

I am just starting out here, but I have really gone crazy with this whole extreme couponing thing! I am trying to learn as much as I can as fast as I can because for me, saving money is making money and that just rocks in my book! Be patient with me, it's a process, but I should have things up and going very quickly! Until then, save some money!!
