    nakabi-I was wondering about that as well. Thanks for that, I'll be able to put these to good use instead of having to toss them. Have you ever tried freezing raw slices for pan frying?

    shelleycole-yes, you can freeze mashed potatoes, but you may want to boil them and just chop them up instead and freeze them that way. When you are ready to use them, just take them out, defrost, and mash. The texture will be better this way after being frozen.

    Hi All! I've got some potatoes that are running out of time. Has anyone ever tried making mashed potatoes and freezing them for later. Seems like every frozen dinner out there has them, but was wondering if anyone had ever tried it. I hate throwing out a almost a whole bag.

    It is getting ready to explode, shelley. You may want to stand back a little.

    Actually, I think it means that you just earned some SB's ad it's letting you know the new total.

    HT has the Kraft Homestyle Mac & Cheese single serving for 2.69/ea. You can use 2 of the .75 couponsthat will double to 1.50 each(=3.00 off) and there is a ZVR for B1G1. Makes this deal a money maker!

    North Raleigh Dad: I found the gatorade with hang tags. I had to buy 4 to use two hang tag coupons. They do state 1.00 off 2 and beeped when I tried to use a 3rd coupon. Still 50 cents each is an ok price for these.

    so i went to CVS the other day to get some cold medicine, so i decided to scan my Extra Care card at the little coupon kiosk....out came a $3 off any CVS i found a body wash that was $3.99 so I was thinking 99 cents isn't bad for a huge bottle of i got my cold meds, and went to the cashier.....the bodywash rang up $1.99!!!! so she scanned the $3 coupon, so not only did i get a free bodywash, i got an extra $1 off my cold medicine.....after looking at my receipt the bodywash was on sale for Buy One, Get One 50% off....but i don't really understand how 1 bodywash is mark-down the 50% off... oh well...FREE BODY WASH.
