    Happy Valentine's Day everyone!

    We're doing our dinner tomorrow, since our DD is sleeping over at my Mom's. Our's definitely won't be frugal, but we rarely go our for dinner just the two of us, so it will be a nice treat!

    If I throw a slice of bread in my already hard brown sugar will the hard lumps break up or do I have to be not so frugal and ditch it?
    I don't think I closed the container properly as I don't usually have this problem.

    We have done this before in our house, we put a piece of wax paper and than a slice of bread and let it sit. Depending on how hard it is after a couple days you may need to put in a new slice but it should soften the brown sugar.

    The other thing you can do is put a few slices of an apple in with it and seal the bag.
    The apple will dry out and the moisture goes into the brown sugar and softens it up.

    Hurray for spending time together....as a couple.

    We sometimes meet up on Mr P's lunch time for a quick meal...that's great once the kids are in school.

    We do this all the time! The bread gets hard and the sugar gets soft. Like SassyAshley said, it may take a few days and a few pieces of bread but it does work! I've done this too when my chocolate cookies don't get wrapped properly and get hard.

    So I'm waiting for Bell to come and then I'm off to do groceries, feels kinda strange I normally do them on Saturdays after church but since I have the car and the Advil Nightime is on sale.......well you get my drift.

    Sent DH off this morning with milk coupons, grocery list for FB, hopefully they have the milk, sugar & oranges in stock.

    I have my menu planned for the next week

    Italian sausages with a side salad
    Chicken breast on the BBQ with rice
    Pork chop casserole
    Hamburger Helper (dear son's request)
    fish
    leftovers 1 night
    Chinese night (using up my wing wong or wong wing cartons)

    Is it just me or is anyone else in a "COUPON FUNK"?

    It just seems there are not really any new tare pads out in my area or atleast ones for items I normally purchase!

    I know the Metro which is 1/2 an hour away does not have any new coupons out and WM never has any.

    I feel the same way, hard to find or when I do find them they don't seem that great.
