    juanita - you can make a bunch of breakfast burritos with eggs, sauteed veggies, cheese, sausage (or veggie sausage as we like to do) and then freeze them for quick and easy breakfasts. Freeze them in individual servings in plastic wrap and then in a freezer bag. When you are ready to use them, just nuke and eat.

    I second holly's breakfast casserole idea. When I have a working kitchen again (which will be on sometime on Monday!!), I will be using one of my 4 dozen eggs for one.

    FlyingUnderTheRadar--Thanks for your help! I will look this weekend and get the rainchecks for the items they are out of.

    Juanitasmith2--what about a breakfast casserole? That typically uses a lot of eggs. You can also do a pound cake. The recipe I have takes 6 eggs. Try www.allrecipes.com

    juanita, here is a great website for various egg recipes :)


    But at our house, breakfast is our fav meal, sometimes we do it for dinner LOL So I can't recommend anything other than the typical use for eggs.

    **waving to ALL** Life just gets crazier and crazier lately, sorry I've been so absent...it's all good though, miss you all very much!!

    Hey everyone, does anyone have good, frugal and easy recipes using eggs as a main ingredient? I've got 4 dozen and I'm sick of omlettes and scrambled eggs lol. Please help!!

    Hmmm...there is a Minute Maid coupon for $.75 on coupons.com for any Minute Maid 12oz cans 12 pack and they are on sale at Harris Teeter for $4.99 so it would be $2.74; that would make a 12oz can of Minute Maid Lemonade roughly .22 each. Not sure if that is great or not but seems like a good thing to take on a beach trip.

    CVS vs. Walgreens: CVS is much more customer/rewards friendly. Walgreens would only allow one reward but CVS gave me three, plus my CVS cashier is super nice and points out deals.

    Yeah...that math didn't make much sense, did it?

    I'm going to leave this question to the pros lol! Sorry!

    paintbananas: according to Faye's price book, you should never have to pay more than $1.50/pound for produce...best prices are around $1.20/pound or less. About 2 pints of blueberries will make one pound....so, about $2.50 for 2 pints would be a good price, going by this thinking. I hope that helps...at all... hopefully! :-)

    fdn76 - Not sure if this helps, but the Spring Forest store does not appear to have them...

    msgooch2000 - thanks for the Whole Foods heads up...they are right up the road from my work...those will pair up nicely w/ my 'triples' BallPark Angus dogs :)

    hollyh515 - ALWAYS get rainchecks for the products you like! At Teeter they never expire and you don't have to use them at just the store you got the RC at. So many coupons 'cycle' so they're worth waiting out, and the 'Perfect Storm' will line up sometime down the road.

    Mr Perky/Dr Perky - that name reminds me of another type of product - bad visions going thru my head - bad me!!! ;)
