weekend update

September 29, 2008

This weekend Amanda and I went to some garage sales and a couple antique malls with our friend Mandy.  We had  a great time.  In fact, we had such a great time we kind of forgot to each lunch.  We were out doing stuff from 8 to 4ish.  Lunch didn’t come until after 2!  I found The Joy of Cooking cookbook at a garage sale for 2 bucks.  You can’t beat that price!  Also, at the antique mall I  found a cute file/magazine holder that is pink and has 3 hooks on the bottom and a red and white Pyrex baking dish that matches the one my hubby’s grandmother gave me at my wedding shower.  I am slowly going to start collecting pieces (it would be great if they were all this pyrex) and actually use them instead of more modern bakeware.  

I took a picture of the salsa and “cheese” Friday when I got home from the store.  We had taco salad for dinner.  Does anyone else find it ironic that I would bother to get Organic salsa when I was making queso with Velveeta?  The queso was for hubby.  I can’t really stand anything with velveeta.  However, that salsa is my new favorite.  Hubby like it too.  Its sooo good!
What is your favorite brand of salsa?

    Sounds like a fun weekend. My son buys some salsa, I think it is organic too, along with chips that come in a large brown bag, and they are both great. Sorry I don’t know what kind. I actually prefer homemade just using canned tomatoes, but everything else fresh. Have a wonderful week. Jackie

    Great Value salsa, it may not be the absolute best, but it is the cheapest and 3yr olds dont care.

    Interesting. I just pulled a Muir Glen coupon out of the Sunday paper because their fire roasted diced tomatoes sounded great.
