Busy, Busy, Busy!

It's been a busy Thursday around here. Well, actually yesterday was even busier because the groomer that I use had an unexpected cancellation and gave Stormy the opening! That meant that I went into cleaning/disinfecting mode...on Wednesday! I don't usually schedule grooming on Wednesday because then I'm just exhausted for evening Bible Study at church. I am glad that Stormy (and my house) smell so nice and clean.

The event today that has kept me so busy was my trip to Sam's Club to replace supplies that we're low on. It was very disappointing to find out that our Sam's no longer has Member's Mark Mocha Cappuccino Powder that I make My Easy and Cheap Iced Coffee with; they just had French Vanilla ! I'm going to check at other Sam's Clubs in Oklahoma and Texas; the hunt is on! My Sam's trip is usually two-fold; the trip itself, and the meat-dividing and freezing marathon that follows, but you know my theory on weekend grocery trips-they should be avoided, if at all possible (like weekend laundry!) So, because I've had a hectic couple of days, I'm going to just share my favorite way to make a cold summer salad with you today.

Marcia's Cold Pea Salad

Defrost a Family-sized bag of young sweet peas.
Add 1/2 C chopped celery and 1/2 C shredded American Cheese.
Toss with Wishbone's Ranch Salad Dressing to taste.
Chill for a couple of hours. Serve with wheat crackers.

I'm participating at LifeasMom's recipe swap today.


  1. Do you go to Sam's first thing in the morning? All the Sam's I've been to have had GREAT deals on markdown meats early in the day. I always get there as early as possible when I need meat, and I get a significant discount off their already good prices. I also avoid any form of grocery shopping on the weekends! That's scary stuff!! :-)

  2. I do go early for markdowns! Thanks for the comment.
