The winner of the reader recipe poll is zucchini cookie bars! Actually, it was a tie, so I just picked the more unique one of the two. (Here’s the recipe I was going to use/modify for oatmeal chocolate chip.) Recipe and review Friday morning!
And here are our groceries for the week! These come from four stores this week, because Dave’s mom picked us up some salmon from Sam’s Club. We don’t have a membership there, although we’re considering it now that we have a big freezer in the basement. We need to do some more research/walking the store to find out if it would be worth it.

Shopping WIN of the day: apples at Kroger $1/lb. I got 10 apples for $5.29… with a savings of $5.24 (without Kroger card). Crazy when you spend almost what you saved, too!
Unfortunately, the rest of Monday wasn’t as money-saving, with an eye-exam, a one year supply of contacts, and a fix for the muffler (luckily a bracket and a pipe and not the whole system). Let’s just say that with rising gas prices and the aforementioned items, March’s monthly budget has taken a real hit. Boooo.
AND I forgot to get stamps at Kroger. Dang. I always forget them, since they’re on my list but I get them after I checkout.
Do you have an item (or items) you always forget?
Do you have a Sam’s Club membership? Worth it?
