    watchhillgirl - There is a specialty meat store in Cary Saltbox Village called The Meat House. Try them for your roast.

    watchhillgirl, did you find your prime rib roast? HT is really good about having things like that. Even if it is not in the case, I have asked for a special cut, and they usually have it and will get it for me.

    Nakabi, I love Yorkshire pudding! My biggest problem is, with a single oven, I've never been able to figure out how to prepare it without the roast getting cold since the oven temp for the YP has to be cranked up so high. Any tips on how to do that?

    About the Glad Expressions Oil Diffuser rebate, I found a package at Harris Teeter last month with the rebate sticker and completed the rebate form with receipt, UPC, and sticker. I got a letter last week that I did not mail the sticker with the form. I called them and offered to email the lady a copy of my form with the sticker (I had made a copy just in case) and the lady refused. So, I won't be getting a rebate. I will be contacting corporate about this matter.

    So, yes we did get some products in our area with the rebate stickers (they were small, about 1" wide, lime green color), but good luck getting the rebate!

    Can you help another blog reader who sent me a question via e-mail about a rebate I am not doing, so I don't have the answer?

    Here is her e-mail:

    "You posted a link for a rebate for the Glade Expressions Oil Diffuser which I printed. The rebate form says that you have to send the original rebate sticker. I looked on both of my diffuser boxes, and didn't see a sticker, so I called the number on the form and was told that without the sticker the rebate wouldn't be submitted. I then asked how is it possible to have two oil diffusers and no rebate sticker, and was told that only certain areas received packages with the rebate sticker attached. Well I thought that sounded a little untrue so I called SC Johnson and was told that they didn't know anything about only certain areas receiving the rebate sticker. They are sending me a coupon for a free product for my trouble. My question is do the packages in the Raleigh area have the rebate sticker?"

    Juanita - no Save A Lot grand opening specials according to the media rep. I was surprised but she said they already have such everyday low prices that they don't go lower for openings. I'll post all the details early next week - probably Monday.

    The Swagbucks code is on their Facebook page here:

    Nakabi - Thank you so much for the heads up on new codes!! Do me a favor - will you post if the code is on the Swagbucks Facebook page, Twitter page or Swagbucks blog when you let us know about new codes. The site you offered is considered a cheat site by Swagbucks and they gets cranky if we post links to them. That site actually has the wrong spelling of the code up right now so for those who did not get the code yet, head to the Swagbucks Facebook page at the link above to get the right code. Again, I really do appreciate when you share that there is a new SB code available, Nakabi! :-)

    watchhillgirl-I'm glad to see a fellow lover and cooker of Yorkshire pudding! not too many Americans know what that is :)
    You are right, a chuck roast just won't do in my opinion either lol..
    I usually buy my standing rib at the HT on Falls of Neuse...The Trader Joes on Wake Forest also usually has them. I'd call them before you go, but I'd be surprised if they don't have them.
