Not Me! Monday

Welcome to Not Me! Monday! This blog carnival was created by MckMama. You can head over to her blog to read what she and everyone else have not been doing this week.

This past week...

OK let's be honest. It's been a really, really crappy week in our house. But I'll try.

I did not completely forget about Not Me Monday until 8:30 on Sunday night...

I would never, have had almost an entire unplanned week off of work thanks to Dovi's lovely health issues.

I did not spend most of it planted on my butt on the couch.

I did not have a completely out of body experience while pulling up to my house-someone driving the exact same van that I drive, down to the missing front right hubcap (darn those potholes!) was NOT parked in my Dovi's handicapped space.

I did not actually look down at my steering wheel to confirm that yes, I was driving my Toyota Sienna and had not driven Benjie's car.

It was not a friend of ours dropping off something for us.

I did not purchase 42 cans of diced tomatoes last week. For $3.92. Who on earth needs 42 cans of diced tomatoes?

I did not make Dovi's counselor Raphi go down to my scary slasher basement to show him my food stockpile. What on earth made me think that a 21 year old guy would be interested in 60 boxes of cereal?

I did not somehow get my family into the museum, that should have cost $75 for $40. And have no idea how that happened.

OK I'm done. I tried, didn't I?

Are you serious? 42 cans!?!? I'm thinking you could use some to make ketchup, and sell it at a profit! I can only imagine what that young man was thinking!!!

Hey, all my tomato loving friends...
how did I do it?
There's a sale at Jewel, spend 25, get 10 towards a future purchase. Last week, tomatoes were on sale for $1/can-and they were $2.35 regular price. The spend $25 was on the regular price-so I bought 14 cans of tomatoes 3 times and had coupons for every can that I bought.
So it was 14 - whatever coupons I had - $10 catalina ended up, including taxes, to be $3.92 for all of them.

I have two words for you:
meatball minestrone.
it's in kosher by design, and if you work quickly, you can have enough in your freezer to last you the rest of the winter (or 'til pesach).

i'm sure raphi loved your pantry. 21 year old boys eat about that amount of cereal a week so i'm sure you're his new heroine.

and i'm not as amazed that you got the bargain rate at the museum as i am at the fact that you actually got the whole family out there to begin with!

who WAS it in your car in front of your house (not bringing you food - the nerve!)?

looking forward to the before/after bathroom pictures!

DESJ and Company said...

it was a friend bringing a load of hand me down boys' me, I'm not complaining!!!

Ooh I'll have to look up that recipe.

I envy you. I always need diced tomatoes and cannot find any. Too bad we don't live closer, I could knock on your front door;) said...

I too am trying to picture what the plan would be for 42 cans of diced tomatoes?!

Here's to hoping this week is a better week for you. If it starts out with a thrift store extravaganza, than it's gotta be! :)

Visiting from SITS and glad I found your blog today--so funny! I can imagine Raphi nodding his head as you go on about your awesome pantry--and it does sound awesome! I once took a pic of my bathroom "pantry" stocked with a years supply of shampoo, tp, soap and other toiletries so I could email it to my sis--I was so proud!
