    Hamburgers (reduced for quick sale ground beef from HT), cheesy hash brown casserole (reduced produce rack potatoes from HT and b2G3 cheese from last week) and a green giant broccoli steamers that I got on sale with a Q recently.

    It also depends on the Lowes Foods you go to. The one at Hwy 42/Hwy 50 is really coupon friendly and they put it through with no issues. They will get reimbursed in full for it since it was a $1 coupon so it's not like they lost any money.

    Faye - the last time I went to Lowe's and tried to use a coupon on a marked down item, they told me I couldn't use a coupon on reduced merchandise.. I was so disappointed I told them I didn't want the items... I guess it depends on which cashier you get...

    Your Italian dogs sound delicious, coffeecrazy!

    We are having:

    Breakfast burritos with scrambled eggs, turkey bacon, shredded cheese, sautéed green peppers and onions, salsa and Wholly spicy guacamole that was marked down to .99 at LF yesterday (expires in a couple days)and I had a $1 coupon so free. :-)

    Fruit salad with the various fruit on sale this week including .99 pineapple (Aldi and Kroger), strawberries (.99 at Aldi through today) and blackberries (Kroger - if I get there - not sure that will happen though).

    Leftover broccoli florets from last night with a little parmesan

    Everything I buy is on sale and/or with a coupon. I don't recall the dates or coupons, but these items are from HT and Aldi.

    Grilled Hillshire Farm beef polka kielbasa
    Skewered green bell peppers and onions - sprayed with olive oil, sprinkled with Jane's Krazy Mixed Up Salt
    HT Hot Dog buns
    Sliced cucumbers in 1/2 cup vinegar, 1 cup water, salt & pepper HT seasoned fries (baked)

    HT Peach Tea (from the mix, on sale right now - delish!)

    Dessert? - someone inspire me. :-)
