Creature Features

Headed back to work today.  Thinking it might be a short one so I've got my coupon bag packed, and I'm ready to score some deals.

For those of you who guessed yesterday, the answer was $404.14 - and we didn't pay a penny.  In fact, if you look to the bottom left side, you'll see they paid us.

As for the fours, I totally didn't plan that.

And now, I best get into my prep clothes.  Looking forward to making the pineapple upside down cake and creature features.  Creature features are the special salads and dessert of the day.  Each day gets a new one.

And that wraps things up here.  Cheers and boogie boogie.

  4. How do they make money, giving away so much for nothing!

    1. Lurker: The store gets back the face value of the coupon. But they do take a bite when they opt to double the face value of that same coupon.

  6. I've been deliberating to make an upside down cake for years now... never have enough bravery for it... caramelizing sugar scares me to death ....

    1. DEZMOND: It is very easy, and they way they have us do our, the caramelizing happens all in the pan. No extra steps needed. Just spray, butter and add the brown sugar to the bottom of the skillet (we use cast iron), and then pineapples and cake batter.

      Flipping it is the most fun.

    1. mshatch: The only stuff we don't use is the allergy medicine, which was an 85 cent money maker. But I knew that going in and it's already been given to both my co-worker and girlfriend that both use this product.
