What storm?

October 29th, 2011 at 06:19 pm

Well, for now at least... not much of a storm here. That may change later of course. We're right on the edge of the rain/snow line, so it's a mix here. Sorry to hear Patientsaver is getting hit so hard! My brother was out and about west of here, but called to report he made it back to NH safely. You'd think he might have checked the weather report before heading down to MA, but noooo...
He said there were a LOT of cars off the road.

This was a fairly normal day for us. No panicked storm runs anywhere. I did need to go to the bread store and the bank. The bread I like, normal well over $4 at the grocery store, was on manager's special: 3 for $3. Sold! I went to the bank to drop off $265 in rebate checks. My bank is in the grocery store and boy was that place INSANE today. Yikes. I wanted to check out the manager specials in the meat department. We had some good luck there last Saturday. I found some good deals: 1.35 lbs ground beef for 3.21, four 5 oz packages of Butterball turkey for 0.79 each, and a package of shaved steak for 2.54. I went over to the discount bakery rack and found some rolls for 1.65. I thought these were all great prices, but for some reason there's a random line item on my receipt "CUST SERV ADJUST -5.00" I didn't notice it until I was going over my receipts a few hours later. Oops. So I only ended up paying a little over $5 for all the items. The screen said $10.xx when I swiped my card! That was quite strange.

I donated 1.00 to someone collecting money for Alzheimer's and 2.00 to a group of veterans outside. I'm a sucker for veterans! Put a bunch of older gentlemen in uniforms out to collect money and I'll give every time! Smile

So we had shaved steak subs for dinner. We'll have them again for lunch tomorrow. Then chili for dinner. Yum!!

After my errands I helped DH with a "minor" repair on his truck. He thought he had a bad tie rod end, but it ended up being a bad idler arm instead. The local parts store had one in stock for 42.99. I found a coupon code online for 10.00 off 30.00 or 20.00 off 50.00, so we added a pair of 9.99 Mechanix gloves and paid 35.xx with tax. Nice deal! He got the part installed while I cleaned up the garden. It was just starting to sprinkle when I got his text asking for help. He just wanted help cleaning up his tools. The rain really started coming down just as we got the tools packed up. The truck still needs some work (brakes, tie rod ends *eventually*) but it should be a lot safer to drive now. The brakes should be a simple job.

We're just taking it easy tonight. Silly us, just sitting here with our laptops and watching Criminal Minds. Smile

    Shaved steak subs? Sounds yummy! Do you have a recipe?

    They aren't difficult at all! Smile Our store sells packages of shaved steak in the meat department. Just cook it up in a pan and season as desired - we used a little salt and pepper. DH sauteed up some peppers and onions, and melted cheese on his. I'm weird - I just like pickles on my steak subs. That's all. No official recipe, just whatever you'd like to throw on a steak sub.

    Those subs do sound delicious. Glad you haven't been hit hard by the storm and hope it stays that way.

    I LOVE Chili! I have to have a peanut butter sandwich with it, though.

  5. dmontngrey Says:

    Well that's different! Smile Not sure how I'd like that combination, but I'm not a huge PB sandwich person anyway.

    Yes, chili is quite delicious!
