Another Great Saturday

This morning we got up and got ready and headed out to the Whistle Stop Tea Room. Second week in a row. I talked Conrad into going since I DID see men there last week. We went, super YUM and then I went and had my hair done. It has been close to three months and I was sorely in need of a little refresh. My stylist went to Africa to do some wild game hunting and she was gone almost a month! So we had a lot of catching up to do ... anyway, she did a great job.

On the way home I stopped at Kroger. Today only, and only in TX and LA - Kroger was doubling coupons up to $1. Usually they double up to 50 cents and triple up to 35 cents. MAN- it was a free for all. Shelves were bare, people were EVERYWHERE and women were stopped dead in the aisles flipping through their coupons. It looked like a hurricane in Houston or an ice storm in Dallas. $130 before coupons, $70 AFTER coupons. SCORE!

I got home, and fired up the new breadmaker. We had Italian Herb French Bread for our first try and it was AWESOME ... it was crispy and herby and perfect. To go along, Conrad grilled some steaks - I baked some potatoes and I made smokehouse pepper and mushroom brandy cream sauce (got it from Rachel Ray) for over the tops of our steaks. MAN, we had a great night. My sister also called which is good, cause today I opened a funny birthday card from her and a Amex gift certificate fell out. I don't know yet what to get with it. I'm kicking around holding on to it until the next Bath and Bodyworks Semi Annual clearance ...

Now it's starting to get dark and I'm full and sleepy ... I've taken pork chops out to thaw for tomorrow's dinner. I am going to make smothered southern pork chops. Saw it on Paula Deen this weekend - probably roast up some potatoes to go with it and finish off our bread.

Happy weekend to you all.

WHAT DID YOU EAT AT WHISTLE STOP??? YOU LEFT OUT THE MOST IMPORTANT PART OF THE STORY!

This all sounds lovely! I clipped a bunch of coupons and now I've been meaning to go to Safeway because they have a big sign up about double coupons. I wonder if they have a limit.
