Finally Friday! Menu post and just "HEY"

Breakfast: pancakes (we are going to take a snails pace today and enjoy! POOR BO has to BRAVE the elements and go to work (He becomes part of the Emergency Management Team in situations like this)YA'LL PLEASE PRAY HE MAKES IT THERE AND BACK SAFELY!
Lunch:burgers (w/o lettuce SORRY BRIAN, I have not made it to the store yet)
Supper:Mozzarella BITES and ,HOMEMADE PIZZA'S (we figured it up, it comes out to .25cents a pizza!!! and that is for a topped one! We usually do peppironi,peppers, onion, olives.....but we are out of peppironi (WE GET THIS AT SAM'S LAST FOREVER!!!We also use it in pasta salad, homemade hot pockets (use cresent rolls if free,cheap) bagel pizza's, get creative!We even put it on cold cut sandwiches!I bag it up in smaller zip bags and put with our pizza crust and cheese!Like grab and go! Just when you get ready to use, take out of freezer about 20 min. before and let it thaw!
It has been AWHILE since we have had to buy this, I just noticed it has gone up in price not quite $2.00, so I will have to "refigure" my cost per pizza, we did the price calculations to see if it really is cheaper or what is our "BUY" price when pizza's go on sale with coupons!

The girls like just cheese. So I make 1 topped and 1 cheese!
Recipe: Pizza Pack CRUST
Don’t forget to oil you pans before spreading on the dough (what a disaster). Tara’s favorite method is to oil the pan with olive oil, then sprinkle on a little course cornmeal. Roll out the dough with a rolling pin and place the rolled dough on the pan. Only use the cornmeal if you are going to roll the pizza dough out before placing it on the pizza pan.
PIZZA CRUST (MAKES 6 MED. to LARGE CRUST!!! FREEZE!!!)This batch will last us 1 month and that is 2 pizzas at a time!
3 cups warm water
1 1/2 T salt
1 T (pkg) dry yeast
4 cups whole wheat flour
4 T sugar or honey (we use honey if we have it!! It is REALLY GOOD!!)
4 cups all purpose flour
In a large bowl, place the warm water. Sprinkle the yeast over the water and allow it to dissolve a few minutes. After yeast is dissolved, add the honey, salt, and the whole wheat flour. Stir until it is no longer lumpy. Allow this mixture to sit, covered and undisturbed for at least two hours (this will give the dough a better texture). Gradually stir in the white flour until you can no longer stir it with a spoon, then knead in the remaining flour (6-8 minutes kneading time by hand). Allow the dough to rise for one hour in a greased bowl. Make sure and cover the bowl with a lid or a towel to keep the dough from drying out. Follow one of the options listed below for assembling and freezing a pizza. This recipe makes enough dough for 6 medium pizzas with a medium thickness crust.
Option 1:
Prepare the dough, allow it to rise once, punch it down, then flatten it into 6 thick disc and freeze them in individual zip bags. The disc shape helps the dough thaw more evenly and quickly. Thaw the dough on a day you will eat it and spread it on a greased baking or pizza pan. Allow the dough to rise, top with sauce and toppings and bake on the bottom rack at 325 degrees for 30-40 minutes until the bottom of the crust is done and the cheese is melted and bubbly. Check the crust by lifting it up with a metal spatula. It should be browned to the center.
For the sloppy joe pizza (FOR THIS ONE I PREBAKE OUR CRUST!!!I will bake it about 20 min. and then top it and then cook for 20 more min!!!)
1 lb. of ground beef (THANK YOU "SUPPER")
3/4 cup frozen or canned corn (Free Bird's EYE)
3/4 cup BBQ sauce (CHEAP AT PUBLIX THE OTHER WEEK!!!.20cents a bottle!)
1/2 cup chopped onion (it calls for green onion, I will use part of a yellow, not quite 1/2 cup because it is stronger)
1 large pizza crust
1 1/2 cups shredded CO/Jack cheese (I will use mozzarella, it is what we have!)
Brown ground beef, drain, stir corn, bbq sauce, and onion in. Heat through. Place dough on baking sheet, spoon beef mixture on top, sprinkle with cheese.Bake 12-15 min!

Ok Ladies here are some "ODD" things you might want to LOOK out for!!!

Have you noticed alot of the coupons that are "LISTED" to use on the list/blogs are NOT in our paper (I know they are regional, but right now it seems almost like NONE of them are in our papers!!! It's all ads, I don't want an ad, I don't want to order 3 pair of Ladies KNIT pants for $19.99, I don't want a clock! I WANT COUPONS!
Ok. I just had to get that out of my system, I'm fine now!Thank you for your time and now back to our regularly scheduled programing!

Go by Walgreens and get the new Feb. coupon booklet! It is at the front of the store where the ads are, they are Walgreens STORE coupons, and they last till the end of the month! I usually get mine the beginning of the month....but I have not made it by there yet. BUT I WILL, I have heard there is a KOTEX coupon in it! Now in the Publix Green Advantage Flyer there is a BOGO Kotex coupon (PUBLIX coupon) and there are some manufacturer coupons out there! So free/cheap Kotex!!

Some odd off list things to look out for at Publix!

~Heinz 16-oz Vinegar $1.29
you will pay .29¢
Print 2 coupons and get 2, we use vinegar all the time and it makes for cheap but good fabric softener!!!See the recipe in the Thrifty Thurs post ?(I think or email or call me, I would be happy to give it to you!)
We figured it up, the fabric softer works out to .43 a batch! (this was using FREE conditioner!)

~Chapstick $1.49
*(look for packs with one free tube)
-$1/1 Publix Q (Green Advantage Flyer)
Make SURE to pick up the right one!!!! I thought I grabbed the right one, as it rang up noticed it was $2.99!!!! The GREAT cashier knows me, and she KNEW this was the WRONG one, the sweet bagger went and got me the one I wanted!!! THANKS LADIES!
So .49 cents for chapstick (not free, but we go through lip balm this time of year, even Bo uses chapstick (he works outside and in the wind!!)
I will NOT let him use my Neosporin Lip Balm!! IT IS TOO NICE *he would lose it, and it took me FOREVER to get that deal! That was at Walgreens a few weeks ago, I did the HAPPY DANCE across the parking lot when I finally found it! I did not even realize I was dancing, until I got in the car, Bo and the kids were BUSTING OUT LAUGHING....wanting to know "WHAT ARE YOU DOING???" I looked down and sure enough, I was STILL DANCING!!Good Deals will do that to you!

Also the .50/1 Pepto coupon that is in the P&G can't remember if it was 1/17 or 2/7!
It will double to $1.00 at Publix....the 12 count tablets (we like these)are $1.89 so .89 cents after coupons!!!
Happy Saving
