Free Grand Slam

Denny's is giving away a Free Grand Slam Breakfast on - 2/3/2009 ..Every guest from 6AM - 2PM on Tuesday will receive 1 free Grand Slam. Enjoy!

Cool Carmel

I've had a lot of requests for this recipe so I thought I'd post it here then I don't have to email it out to everyone ;) If you haven't tried this before you are missing out! It's super easy to make and so so yummy! It's a recipe I got from my Aunt Deanna.

Cool Carmel
1/2 Cup brown sugar
1/2 Cup oatmeal
2 Cups flour
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1 Cup chopped nuts
2 Cubes melted butter
Bottle of Caramel
Vanilla Ice Cream

Spread everything listed above except caramel and ice cream on a cookie sheet and bake about 10 minutes at 400. It's easiest if you just mix everything right on the cookie sheet (one with side edges works best). Make sure it has a light brown top before taking it out of the oven, every oven cooks differently. While hot, separate with fork until pan of crumbs. Let cool. Sprinkle 1/2 crumbs on bottom of 9x13 pan. Drizzle 1/2 bottle caramel over crumbs. Layer vanilla ice cream. If you can find the rectangular cardboard packaged vanilla ice cream that is easiest to use. Remove box and slice then piece on top of crumbs. Ice cream will need to soften a little to mush together into the entire pan. Sprinkle remaining crumbs on top and drizzle remaining caramel. Freeze. Take out of freezer a little before serving so it can soften enough to serve. ENJOY!!!

Car Seat Anyone???

I have an infant/toddler carseat available for anyone that would like it. I know it's at least a few years old because I used it with Ashlynn before I put her in her booster seat and she's 4 now. Just let me know and it's yours ;)

Hard White Wheat Pricing

Some wheat pricing comparison’s I did this morning.

  • Diversified Products
    50 pounds of Wheat $25
    6.5pound bucket $5.50
    Total - $30.50 or .61/pound
  • Mesa Cannery (you can stop in anytime and get up to 25 bags/month)
    2-25pound bags @$7.40 each
    Total - $14.80 or .30/pound w/o buckets
    6.5pound bucket $5.50 (from diversified)
    Total - $20.30 or .41/pound w/buckets
  • Costco
    45 pound prefilled white bucket $21.99 +tax of .33
    Total - $22.32 or .50/pound

    The cannery is definitely the best deal if you already have buckets. However if you need buckets for the wheat it’s pretty convenient and a great price to just go pick them up at Costco w/no limit, no driving to Mesa to pick up the product & no caning of the product.
