Create A Personal Vitamin ID  

Posted by Johnny

When I want to start taking vitamins again I always go to the store or The Health Food Store in Ft. Wayne to get them. But then I get overwhelmed by the choices. What I need and what to add to my daily vitamin that I already take.

Well, Nature Made has made it easier for you. They have created the Vitamin ID, which personalizes vitamins to your lifestyle. Go and take the survey. It is totally free and you don't have to buy from them, even though I think their prices are very reasonable for everything they include. I found it very helpful and saw where I needed to add to the vitamins I am already taking.

Side note here, I have not been paid by them to review this. I simply came across the website and thought I would share it with you.

Chili Corn Dog Pie  

Posted by Johnny

This is a super easy recipe that my kids loved!

(2) Cans Chili with beans (or homemade 4 cups)
(6-8) Hot Dogs, sliced in half lengthwise
(1-2) boxes corn muffin mix or (1) Cup self-rising Cornmeal mix like Aunt Jemima

If using Jiffy mix follow directions on the box for mixing it. If using Cornmeal mix, mix with 1/2 cup milk 1 large egg & 2 TBL Vegetable Oil.

(1) Cup Cheddar Cheese

1. Heat Oven to 400F.

2. Pour the chili in an 11x7 (2-quart) glass or ceramic baking dish. Then arrange the hot dogs on top of the chili.

3. Pour cornmeal mix, from above, evenly over the hot dogs. It is easier if you start in the middle and work out. Top with cheese.

4. Bake the casserole until the corn bread topping is lightly browned and firm with the chili bubbling around edges. Approximately 25-30minutes. Cool 5 minutes before serving.

Serves 6-8.

Serve these with ketchup, mustard, onion or topping you might want on a chili dog.

I found this recipe in my new cookbook, The Dinner Anne Byrn

I'm Really Still Here..Here's A Shopping Trip To Prove It!!!  

Posted by Johnny

I have been gone for so long and for those of you that have continued to come here and support my blog I really do appreciate it! A lot has happened to keep me from blogging and now I hope that i can get back into the habit of it once again.

Here is my Walgreens trip for this week:

I actually had RR's to spend and I split this into two transactions.

(4) Quaker Instant Oats @ 2.50ea - (2) 1.25/2 MQ + 7-Day BOGO Q = 2.50
(2) Airwick Refills @ 3.50ea - 4 IP (no overage just gave me 3.50) = FREE coupon is located in the corner after you click on the banner
(2) Simply Asia Soup Bowls .89ea - 50/1 MQ = .39ea
(1) Super Poligrip 2.00
(2) Trident Layers @ 1ea - BOGO Q (cashier took 1.29 off because the first one rings up for 1.29) =.79
(4) Act II Singles .25ea with 7-Day Q = 1.00
(1) Dulcolax @ 7.00 - 3.00 Q on package = 4.00
(1) Fiber Choice @ 2.49

Total after q's 13.56 then I used RR's to get my OOP to $3.51
I am not totally sure she rang all my q's looking at my receipt, but still not bad.
Then I received the following RR's back - $5 for buying $10 of Quaker Oats, $1 for Trident, $2.50 for Fiber choice, $4 for Dulcolax $2 for Poligrip = $14.50

(4) Act II Singles .25ea with 7-Day Q = 1.00
(1) Fiber Choice @ 2.49
(2) Trident Layers @ 1ea - BOGO Q (cashier took 1.29 off because the first one rings up for 1.29)= .79
(1) Super Poligrip 2.00
(1) Emergen-C @ 3.49

Total 9.77 (without taxes) paid $7 in RR's bringing my total to $3.39
Then I received the following RR's back $1 for Trident, $2.50 for Fiber choice, $2 for Poligrip and $3.50 for Emergen-C = $9 gained $2 yeah!!! Total OOP for both $6.90! Plus I have $23.50 in RR's

Some of these items I really don't use like Poligrip, but those are the items I give to people that will use them. I have never had a problem finding people to give away my free stuff to.

Posted by Johnny

Thanks to Nancy's Notions you can go here and download a free pattern to make a fall table runner. You can make a few simple changes if you do not have embroidery machine to make this a hand embroidered runner or a simple quilted runner if you don't want to do the hand embroidery.
