Monday

July 4th cook-out!

Hot dogs -Oscar Mayer Beef on sale BOGO at Lowes Food through 7/5 with $1/2 coupon and Ball Park fat free smoked turkey hot dogs (which I love with only 50 calories per hot dog and NO fat) on sale with coupon at Lowes Foods through 7/5

Hot dog buns (Ball Park buns on sale for $1.50 at Lowes Foods through 7/5 - .55/1 coupon = .40 per package – a great deal!)

Pasta salad using green peppers, tomatoes and onion from local veggie stand and black olives that were on sale a couple weeks ago. Light Kraft mayo was on sale with $1/2 coupon. McCormick pasta salad seasoning was on sale during super doubles a few months ago with $1 coupon. If you haven’t tried the McCormick pasta salad seasoning, you are missing out. It adds the perfect zing to pasta and I highly recommend it (especially when it is free with sale and coupons. LOL)
