    raesmom1612 - sorry about your kitchen fail! Especially since you didn't get to eat PB cookies. :-( And you are such a good mommy to bring the kiddos on your "romantic" anniversary dinner. I'm just happy this cold did not kick in while I was hanging with my high school buddies this weekend. :-)

    Awww Faye that's so nice that you would even consider (told ya she was awesome)!! We should be ok though. We've been together so long and yes we love each other, but these girls are pretty high on the "make us happy list" so we don't mind hanging out with them.

    I found some peanut butter cookie dough in the freezer today, couldn't remember how long they had been there. So I rolled three of them and put them on a baking sheet just to see how they would come was a no go. They didn't even expand......that's pretty bad lol. I have a pouch of betty Crocker peanut butter cookie dough mix.....that will be dessert sometime this week. Maybe Sunday as they are DH's favorite. Just wanted to share my "Kitchen Fail"

    I love the fun chat in this thread today!

    katyshuler - WELCOME!! And I am so sorry about your job loss, as well. I hope we can help save you lots of money. Just holler if you have questions. There are many super couponers here on the blog who can help you out. And they also happen to be super people!

    Happy Anniversaries, Raesmom and Ascherer!! I'd offer to babysit this weekend, Raesmom, but Hannah and I are currently sick and I just got back from taking Hannah to the Dr. You don't want any part of us. :-p

    ascherer - I was also wondering what the mysterious smilies were all about. We have cuties to eat tonight as well.

    We will not be having penne alfredo to eat tonight since we just got back from the Dr. It's pizzas and roasted asparagus instead. With Cuties/Smilies! I did get to stop at Aldi on the way to the Dr since they are right near each other and picked up some avocados and strawberries before the sale ends today. Yum!

    Thanks Ascherer and I hope you enjoy your anniversary as well!!! DH just called and asked what I wanted to do or where I wanted to go. Being limited because of the girls we can't go too far traveling or too fancy eating, so I may settle for Carrabbas.....most important thing is that we are together right??

    Lol jdouglas, you've got a serious sweet tooth. Is it black jelly bean time yet?? Ill be sure to pick up a few bags for you and save them for next time you come by :) Rae is obsessed with those Cutie and Halo oranges. We keep them on hand all the time. They are pretty tasty.

    Forgive my manners Katyshuler!!! Welcome to the best blog in the world!!! (I'm a bit bias because Faye is awesome lol) hope you enjoy everything you read.....and don't ever be afraid to ask a question.....the people on this blog really are amazing

    Sorry - I meant Cuties not Smilie.

    Oops, I misspoke. I'm sorry about that!

    Faye's class is $10. As I said, it has been a while, so I forgot. The class is well worth every penny of it! You'll make it back the first time you go shopping using her tips.

  • jdouglas13 Mar 8, 2016

    Ascherer -- you got me with the smilie slices?? Orange slices candy? If not, it should be LOL. :)
    Congrats on your anniversary too!

  • ascherer Mar 8, 2016

    Raesmom - Congratulations. Our anniversary is Monday. I have no clue what our plans are. I guess it ill depend on when I get home from DC.

    KathyShuler - Welcome to Faye's Army.

    Everyone's menu sounds so good. I will probably have cheese and cr ckers with a side of smilie slices.

    Tonight we are having Brasilian :-) Rice, black beans, fried eggs and salad. We'll have orange slices or strawberries to go with it... both on sale at Aldi this week.

    Thanks jdouglas!! Feels like only yesterday we tied the knot (who am I kidding lol). The girls and I were out at pullen park today it was gorgeous!!! Baby Ziti says thanks.

    So many yummy dinners tonight...I'm sure you can guess which is my fav ;)

    Tonight is going to be bbq pork chops with mashed potatoes and carrots.
