Recipe ~ Shells (items on sale at Fry’s ~ pasta, Ragu, ground beef, tomatoes, etc…)


Here’s a great recipe that Carla sent us.  Most of these items are on sale this week at Fry’s as part of their mega sale.

I love this recipe because I can’t do too much alfredo, so mixing it together with red sauce sounds perfect!


12 ounces shells can substitute macaroni or other shaped pasta if desired.
1 Tbsp oil
1 onion, chopped
1/2 lb ground beef
1 cup alfredo sauce (like Ragu)
1 jar red spaghetti sauce (like Ragu)
2 tomatoes, finely chopped
1 tsp basil
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp parsley
1 tsp sugar
1/4 c Parmesan
2 cups mozzarella cheese, grated

Cook shells according to package directions. Heat oil in skillet. Brown beef and onion in skillet. Drain fat. add red spaghetti sauce, tomatoes, basil, oregano, parsley, and sugar. bring to a boil and let simmer for 15 minutes. in a casserole dish put half of the noodles. put half the red sauce over it. then put half the mozzarella cheese. Repeat. Drizzle the 1 cup white sauce over the top. Sprinkle the Parmesan over the top. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes. Enjoy.

Zaycon Fresh ~ Chicken for $1.89/lb (no additives, no added hormones, etc.)

Zaycon is back with chicken for $1.89/lb!  This is a SUPER price!  This is for deliveries in November, so you have lots of time to go through what’s in your freezer.  They do sell out, so you will want to reserve yours soon.  They have 93% lean beef for $3.99/lb with delivery dates at the end of July and August.

Here’s what you need to know . . (It may sell out, but make sure you get on the waiting list.  If enough are on it, they’ll get another truck load out our way!)

You can get Zaycon chicken for $1.89/lb!  You will be purchasing 40 pounds at a time.  Typically, if you wait long enough, we’ve been able to find chicken in the store is about $1.79/lb.  Zaycon chicken is $1.89/lb, and you are getting fresh from the farm chicken.  Never frozen, no additives, no added hormones, etc.  A dime more per pound is nothing for getting natural chicken.

Here’s the information I’ve shared about them before, and ordering information:

They have locations ALL OVER, even smaller communities, so be sure to check out their list.  There are different ordering deadlines, depending on your area, but they do sell out from time to time, so be aware of that.   Delivery dates also vary, but seem to be in November.  They currently have beef being delivered at the end of July

It’s a lot of boneless, skinless chicken breasts . . . 40 pounds to be exactIt’s fresh from the farm, never been frozen. There are no added hormones, additives or artificial ingredients.   It comes in a box with four separate 10 pound bags.  If you don’t have the freezer space, consider sharing it with a friend.  The total cost will be $65.60 plus tax.

They have a short video, if you want to see what to expect.

Be prepared!  It’s a very large amount of chicken and they are huge breasts.  (They are almost too thick to just throw on the BBQ.  You’ll probably want to slice them.)   I spend a couple hours prepping mine.  I slice some, fajita style.  I cube others.  I make tenders out of some.  And, I leave some larger.  You can also freeze it with your favorite marinade.  Of course, you can just stuff them all in freezer bags without very much prep and it wouldn’t take nearly so long.  I always LOVE that I did the work ahead of time.  I just pull out a quart sized freezer bag and dinner is so simple!

The pick up process is super easy.  You don’t even have to get out of your vehicle.  You drive through and they load it up for you.

Place your order now if you want it.

Note:  They also have other foods available.  Check out pricing and what’s available in your area, since it varies.

** They have a referral program where you can earn a $1 credit for each order placed.  For a limited time, it’s $5 per referral!  After you sign up, if you decide to tell your friends about it, find your own referral link to give them.  I appreciate you using mine, but don’t send them to my link . . . get your own credit!

Driscoll’s Berries ~ Take a Survey, Get Coupons!


Let’s face it, couponing is getting harder.  The value of the coupons seem to be going down or requiring you to buy multiple quantities.  Prices are going higher at the stores all the time.  We have a super easy way to save big on items you are already buying anyway.

If you are already part of the Driscoll’s Consumer Advisory Panel, yea!  If not, read on.

More than half the time, the berries at the store will be Driscoll’s brand.  If they are, you can save big, especially when you pair a great sale with a coupon.  Juli just got 8 containers of strawberries for free.  Actually, they paid her to buy them.  She priced matched at Walmart and they gave her the overrage.

Here’s how it’s done:

Go here and sign up with Driscoll’s.  You’ll automatically get a 50¢ coupon.

After that, whenever you buy Driscoll’s berries, you can go back here and take a quick survey.  I know the survey well, and it took me less than 2 minutes to complete.  It’s best if you remember some information like what store you bought them at and how much they were.  You will also need the code on the sticker on the back of the container.  It’s not the UPC, but the little code that I blacked out in the picture below.


As we finish a pack of berries, I just cut out the code and put the rest of the container in the recycle bin.  Then, I put the little code over by my computer and the next time I have a few minutes, I’ll do the survey.   I don’t remember the exact specifics on the number of surveys, but I think your first 5 or so you get a 50¢ coupon.  After that, you get a 75¢ coupon.  Once you’ve taken 15 surveys, you get a $1 coupon!

Now, I don’t need to tell you that the $1 off coupon will get you free berries at several stores this week.

They will email you the coupon, which you can print twice!

Just a note, they reset the survey amount every year.  So, we will all start with 50¢ again in 2016.

It really is a win/win and a huge way to save on produce.

Sunday Coupon Preview ~ 2 Coming on 6/21


If you like to peek ahead to see what coupons you should expect on Sunday, I have them listed for you below.  It looks like we should be getting two inserts this Sunday . . .one Red Plum (RP) and one Smart Source (SS).  Remember, coupons are sometimes regional, so there aren’t any guarantees what we’ll get.

az_republic_3_for_1If you don’t get the Sunday coupons, you can get the Sunday and Wednesday Arizona Republic delivered for only $12 for 3 months, if you haven’t been a subscriber in the past 30 days.   I have verified that this is the best rate they currently have available.  You pay for one month, get two for free.  That works out to approximately $1 per week!  The key is that you need to cancel in three months, if you decide not to continue at full price, since it’s an autopay offer.  I’ve often called to cancel a promotional rate and they’ve extended it, but no guarantees on that.

Here’s what we hope to get:

Spend $500 at Scottsdale Quarter Get a Free Night at Westin Kierland


This is a pretty sweet deal.

Through 6/14, if you spend $500 in the same day on 2 or more qualifying receipts at Scottsdale Quarter, you’ll get a voucher for a free one night stay at Westin Kierland ($149 value).

It’s slightly different than last year.  Last year, you were able to buy a drink at a restaurant and then a $500 Visa Gift Card from Scottsdale Quarter management office, which could be used anywhere.  This year, they are no longer selling the Visa Gift Card, but have American Express.  However; the fine print on the deal says it excludes American Express gift cards.  So, you’d basically have to buy gift cards to the individual stores if you want to go that route.  Not, quite as good, but you can still come out with a good deal.

Turn in your receipts at Nambe during regular business hours.  Nambe is in the center located by the fountain.

There are some restrictions for the one night stay with some blackout dates and a resort fee.  If you have ANY questions, visit Nambe before making your purchase.  Last year, you could not gift it either.  The person on the voucher had to be the one at the hotel.

Go here to read all the details.

(Thanks, Sandy!!)
