Weekly Flyer Review – Groceries

Last week one of my followers commented about the "sale" price of Bick's pickles and I wanted to take a moment to address it. Walmart - and Loblaws - often advertise products that are the regular price. It is very sneaky of them because you think that you're getting a deal but you really aren't. … Continue reading Weekly Flyer Review – Groceries

Brown Butter Babies

Every Christmas my Aunt Paul goes on a baking extravaganza! It starts around early October when she bakes her fruitcakes which will then be "watered" - more like boozed lol - regularly until it's time to gift them to their new homes.

Random Thoughts And Other Things – 2

Do any of you watch HGTV? I may - MAY - have a slight addiction to watching the channel. In fact, my TV is usually left on it.

Let's … Continue reading Aunt Sue’s Chocolate Mayo Cake

The grass growing in the Spring counts, right? lol I have a little secret about this dip. I could, literally, eat this dip with a spoon because it's THAT … Continue reading Easy Tex-Mex Taco Dip

Weekly Flyer Review – Groceries

For this week, the sales at Sobeys, Metro and Loblaws suck! Can I say that? Too late I guess because it's been said. Sadly, it is also true. Don't you hate how some places raise prices right before a long weekend? Like gas? Bastards! Anyway, you don't care that Loblaws does not have great sales … Continue reading Weekly Flyer Review – Groceries
