    Went to RCSS for something and noticed whole chickens were .99 LB. I couldn't leave without so grabbed 2 x 2pk. One in the fridge for rotisserie chicken Saturday night and the other in the freezer. I will make sure to pull the older ones out before the new 2pk.
    I had made 2 chickens 2 weeks ago. I pulled cooked chicken from the freezer last night and made the boys Quesidias for dinner and made extra for DS's lunch today. Will see if he enjoyed them and if so it will be something I will make more of. I made extra for the teen and put in fridge and he just heated up when hungry so something I will be making more of for sure.

    @coupon girl thank for posting the new thread, I agree it's hard to believe it's February already. Ashlyn I'm sure will love having Nana around 1 extra day a week.
    @lizzie bargain welcome home, can't wait to see your pictures and hear about your travel adventures.

    __________________________

    Good evening everyone,

    Yesterday I painted ds2's bedroom door & the bathroom door, I've been wanting to add a new fresh coat of paint. Tomorrow I will ds'2 closet door and the closet door in the entryway. It's amazing what a coat of paint does

    Supper tonight was shrimp pasta and it was yummy.

    I've been pre-occupied lately and it needs to stop. I need positive distractions so I will tackle atleast 1 household project a day to lift my spirit and bring the shine back into the house.

    The kids are off tomorrow as it's a PA day, so I will put youngest to work baking and oldest to removing the door knobs so I can paint.

    If anyone sees a sale in the new set of flyers for Barilla pronto could you please let me know, thanks

    Wishing everyone a great evening
    2019 is the year that we continue to save before we buy!!!

    I just had to jump in here, @coupon girl . We also care for our 8-yr old grandson whenever they need us. Our DD works long hours at 3 different banks, and her DH is now a SAHD, which is fantastic for all of them, so from time to time they need to get away, so we're here for them and always will be. This weekend they're off to Boyne with another couple: the guys will be snowboarding and the gals will spend most of their time in the spa...they all deserve it.
    I hear you about grandparents who seem to be a few steps away from their grandkids, not involved and like you, I really can't understand it. And like you, our kids absolutely appreciate and acknowledge our contributions, so it's easy to be there for them.
    It's hard sometimes, I know, we're not young anymore, and it is exhausting, particularly your two days in a row, but it's only until September, so you'll do just fine. Rest when you can!

    @jasperandchar -I've skimmed through the grocery flyers and do not see Barilla Pronto mentioned anywhere. There's still the Sobey's flyer to wait for. @Angela _273 -I'll type the Five Roses Prize Pizza dough recipe tomorrow for you to try. I make one large dough, not the three 9" ones indicated in recipe. Sometimes it turns out thin after baking and sometimes I get a good rise in the crust during baking. Must better than shortcrust on some of the frozen pizza varieties.

    I missed moving to this thread, so I've already posted this in the January thread. I took our twins for their 18 month immunizations, neither of them cried. Baby girl is now running a fever.

    I'm looking for a recipe for homemade pizzas. I haven't made pizza from scratch in a very long time. I have a jar of yeast in the fridge, but I do not own a stand mixer or a bread mixer.

    @jasperandchar : Just checking in quickly, but Barilla Pronto is on the first page of Sobey's.

    Will catch up when I have more sleep!
