Cool New Trip Planning Site: Gogobot

I just came across a new trip planning site called Gogobot.  It seems to be a pretty cool little application.  I've not had the chance to use it extensively, but it seems like it will be quite useful in getting word of mouth tips from real people, which are always the best kind, if you ask me.   I'm going to be playing around with it a bit in the weeks to come!

Dishing It Up Recipe Hop: 5 Ingredients + Win Country Gourmet Mixes

Welcome to the May Dishing It Up Recipe Hop! Dishing It Up is brought to you by Dearly Domestic, Deals From MS Do, Eating With Mimi, Happy Lil Homemaker, Mama Does It All, Pary Moppins, Saving Myself Silly, and Thrifty Texas Penny.

Over the last year, our hop has grown and changed to make it better for you. Each month, we bring you recipes with a different theme and this month we're focused on recipes with 5 Ingredients or Less!

The recipe I'm going to be sharing this week is one that I sort of made up just this week:

Citrus Chicken Pasta  (<----- Click there for the recipe!)

I love this because I was able to toss it together in very little time using items I had on hand.  It is very versatile, too.  Use any type of seasoning, any type of pasta, and whatever vegetables you happen to have on hand.   This is one of those things that I will make again, but it will probably never be the same twice!

Here are more 5 Ingredient Recipe ideas, and if you have one of your own, please share it!  (Giveaway info below the linky).

Earlier this year, we added a website and a Facebook page.

In March, we brought you our first giveaway and here we are at it again! This month's giveaway is sponsored by Mama Mixes. In the spirit of recipes with 5 ingredients or less, one winner will receive a Country Gourmet Home Prize Pack that includes 5 Country Gourmet Home mixes. Each of these mixes will help you to put dinner on the table in a flash by just adding a few ingredients! Take a look at the yummy dinners you could win!

This giveaway starts on May 3 at 12:01 AM EST and ends on May 31 at 11:59 PM EST. There will be new recipes added each week, so be sure to keep up with us throughout the month and to linkup your own recipes as well! a Rafflecopter giveaway

Some Summer Changes...

School is almost out for summer (woo!), and it's been a very busy last month of school around here.   The past two week's especially so, and tomorrow I have both sets of grandparents visiting to attend Kindergarten graduation so I've been busy trying to get the house ready for visitors.  (Note that I will very likely be MIA all weekend!)

Today for about the third week in a row I've not had a chance to post deals for the major grocery chains in my area.   I've tried my best to get to it, but it just hasn't happened.   I've done a lot of thinking about this, and looking back of pageviews on those posts, and I've decided that they are simply not worth the effort.

For one thing, they take a LONG time to type up and look up all the coupons and link to all the printable coupons.  Also, there are many, many sites  (sites who pay for a service that inputs the list of coupons for them thus making it much simpler) that post these major chain stores every week  (I will gladly help you find one in your area that covers your store--or any store in any area, just send me an email!).  Plus, they were honestly my absolute least viewed posts out of any posts I write!

I will continue to post Aldi, and the local chains in my area (El Rancho, El Rio Grande, and Fiesta) hopefully much earlier than I got them posted tonight.  I don't think there are that many other pages out there that cover these stores, and I know many of you count on me for those, so I am more than happy to continue posting these!

I hope you will all understand.  I've put a lot of thought into this, and while I'd like to be able to post deals for all the stores in my area, I simply must cut back on a few!  I will still post a great deal or freebie here or there that I intend to go snag myself, but I won't be posting weekly ad match-ups for Albertsons, Kroger, or Tom Thumb any longer.

I'm hoping this will free up some of my time to better plan my own shopping trips and meal plans, and I will be able to share in advance what I plan to get each week and what I plan to make with it in hopes of further helping you with your menu planning and money saving!.

Once school lets out and we get our new summer schedule all hashed out I will let you know what day to expect my posts (I'm going to attempt changing up my planning days to better match up with the sale ads and my shopping day!)

Don't worry!  I'm certainly not going anywhere.  I love my blog and I love you all!  But, I do plan on enjoying as much time with my family as I can this summer, and I can't do that staring at my laptop.  Plus, there are some things going on in life that are going to require a bit more of my time and attention it seems.   So, expect me to be a bit quieter than usual over the summer, but certainly not silent! =)

One more thing I want to mention (and this goes for any blog you love and follow), I know that I have more people who "like" my page on facebook and follow me there than anywhere else.   I've heard a lot of talk lately (and I even read something from facebook itself) saying that an average post on facebook only gets shown to roughly 16% of that page's followers.   That means that facebook is deciding (maybe at random, or maybe using some algorithm that no one quite comprehends) what posts you do and do not see in your newsfeed.  They are asking page owners who would like their posts to be seen by more people (people who have already opted to follow these pages, mind you!) to pay to promote each post that they'd like more people to see.

I can't afford such antics, and don't know many bloggers who can!  If you'd like to make sure you aren't missing my posts, be sure to Subscribe to Saving Myself Silly by Email.  You will get one email a day that contains any posts I've written for the day.   Please do this for any and every blog that you love.

Citrus Chicken Pasta

I know I never posted this week's menu, but tonight I had planned to make some chicken pot pies for the freezer.  I went to a different Aldi than I usually do today, and they didn't have the roll out pie crusts to go on top of them, and I just wasn't feeling making my own, so I moved on to plan B, which involved foraging through my pantry.

You see, I bought about 7lbs of split chicken  breasts at El Rio Grande last Thursday for $0.69/lb.   Sunday I cooked them all and then cooked the bones down some more to make a stock, so I've got a two big bowls of chicken and stock sitting in my fridge, so I knew whatever I made was going to involve chicken.

I had various pastas, and a few sauce/seasoning packets in the pantry so here is what I came up with.

1 bag of Wacky Mac  ($0.49 after coupon I believe)
1 packet of McCormick Grill Mates Baja Citrus flavor  (free after coupon)
Cooked chicken --I sort of just tossed in a few handfuls until it looked about right....I would guess roughly 2 cups.
1 bag of Bird's Eye Steam Fresh Peas  (I don't remember the price of these)
Sliced Tomatos --I had some small cherry tomatoes in the fridge...I probably used about 10-15 for the whole pot sliced in half.

Cook Pasta.  While pasta is cooking prepare Grill Mates as directed on package.  Also, microwave peas, and slice tomatoes.

Drain pasta.  Add in sauce, chicken, peas, and tomatoes.   Heat through (because my chicken was cold) and serve.

It came out pretty good for a quick meal.   My girls gave me a bit of trouble because they could see the seasoning on it and didn't believe me that it wasn't spicy.  I was in the mood for something tangy, so I chose the citrus, but you could use any type of marinade you have on hand that sounds good to you.  You can also use any type of veggie you have in your fridge/freezer that needs to be used up.

Let me know what you would put in it!


Chocolate Coupon!

Woohoo!   I love chocolate, and I love it even better when I can save money on it!  Here's a great milky way coupon!

$0.75 off two MILKY WAY Brand Bars
