Just a few minutes ago, a neighbor stopped by and said I should check again, because people were getting more, but it was taking several days to be added. I doubted it would be more than the additional $16, but was elated to find out I have $181 now!

Doing a Happy Dance!!!

I'll be shopping Wednesday and Thursday, so I'll be working on my grocery list, especially to make sure I have more canned foods on hand, in case of another storm.
WOW Z I'm so happy for you. There are times we get big grin's that seem to go from ear to ear. I bet yours does. whoopie.

I was shopping at Zeller's and they had this on clearance for $21.00!

I never had a slow cooker before, so I got one. This is going to be fun. The crocks are 2.5 quarts each and dishwasher safe, so are the lids.

w00t!

Good for you Taxlady! Seems like a good buy, I like the idea of the "double pot"! I bet you could use it as a warming dish on a buffet table too. Might even work for cheese fondue in one and chocolate fondue in the other mmmmmm! Chocolate! ;)

It's actually called a "double slow cooker buffet and serve".

I like your idea of trying fondues in it.

My store has baby back ribs on sale for 1.99 per pound. I'm stocking up my freezer! Last week we had spare ribs for 99 cents a pound, got some of those too!

My son made tomato soup today. First time ever. OK, he called me 10 times. Soup is excellent. I had to have seconds. Very proud, especially proud that he cut everything finely. Love it. I am a proud papa today.

Awesome, Charlie! This made me giggle, him calling Dad 10 times. How old is your son?

It's a great feeling when this happens Charlie. You should be very proud!
