Happy Ad Friday! 

Ho there Cheepsters! I’m late but checking in before the weekend, so let’s call it a win.  Before I lose momentum let’s get to the list, I can entertain you with silly photos from the Randalls circular later.

You should know, though, that for about $3 and the stuff in your pantry you can probably make exactly what’s in that photo, which is a pretty decent cobbler. Recipe tomorrow, ok? 

(Does using the word ‘circular’ mean I’m old? Is it a Yankee thing I learned from my mom, like eating Triscuits? Or is it just old people talk for junk mail? )

Happy Ad Wednesday!

I know. I abandoned you to muddle through the Apple Wars alone.  I could blame my poor old broken-down minivan (You were a workhorse, Sally!). I could blame my kids (Eldest, Boy and Tiny really like to interrupt any coherent thought that might kindle in my brain). I could blame the air (ragweed, you ignorant slut!). 

Mostly to blame, though, is that I’m lazy. And  I watch too many of those little cooking Facebook videos. And the heartwarming videos. And then I take a nap. 

This week though, for you Cheepsters, I have closed several tabs on my browser and am getting down to brass tacks.  There are deals, and you shall know of them!

Here we go. But first:img_5823

Randalls, you know we’re not in Louisiana, right? I get it, they’re not Yankee crabs from Maryland. And Louisiana is closer, sure. But words mean things, and you can’t just slap ‘LOCAL’ on something because it’s from somewhere closer than it could be from.  Effing Randalls.

Happy Ad Thursday!

This will be short and sweet because Cheepie’s got a date!  I’m going downtown to meet up with a ton of other food bloggers at the BlogHerFood conference.  I feel somewhat like an interloper, since I focus on groceries (after that Family Dinner experimental phase) and everyone else is cooking/eating out/being famous on twitter, but I blog about food so off I go!  

Randalls has mangled their ad so much that I didn’t even try to decipher much past the meat loss-leaders. Betweeen the FAB5!, limits, minimums and $5 FRIDAY!!!, it’s pretty much as chaotic as a weekly grocery sale can be.  Sure, something you want is likely on sale, but you might have to buy only between 2-4 of them, possibly only on Friday. This is why my blog has a tag for ‘effing Randalls’.

This week’s highlights: pork loin, asparagus, apples both organic and not.

NOTE: The chicken on sale at HEB this week is Hill Country Fare brand. I’m pretty sure these are the ‘enhanced with solution’ kind. If this matters to you, make sure to read the label!
