Recent Harris Teeter Trips

I’ve been so busy I haven’t had a chance to post my latest results.

Starting back on August 18, at Harris Teeter I got this:

My total was lower than expected because the General Mills deal rolled between transactions and I got an extra $5 off. Couldn't even use my last coupon! My total was only 80 cents!

Next up: Harris Teeter, September 20 –

(running downstairs to grab the receipt) Ta da! $1.03. Another GM discount, so I had to grab the canned green beans to bring my ticket to the positive side.

I did 2 more trips to Harris Teeter, but didn’t take photos, more of the same mostly. I did get one more of the $5 GM discounts and had to buy an inexpensive bottle of wine to take me to the positive side.

My teenage boys are LOVING the pizza rolls. Great snack, and really cheap with the coupons. Good thing I bought that freezer last week!

Word on the street is that Harris Teeter is doing super doubles starting Wednesday, September 30th.

Day 24 – AYGC

A late afternoon trip to the bookstore to look over college directories with my 17 year old prompted a treat at the Starbucks. Cost: $6.24. It was a nice treat, and not all that expensive, but considering it cost about 3 time what I spent making dinner… Well, you get the picture.

Dinner tonight was a tuna casserole. The tuna was free with coupons a few months back, and the pasta was probably 5 cents after triple coupons. I served the casserole with canned green beans. Sort of ridiculous, since I have beans growing in the back yard, but we didn’t get home until about 6:30 and had to rush out back and help my husband lift and position a wall for the workshop he’s building. I know some people don’t like canned green beans, but we do, and in fact *I* prefer them over frozen green beans (unless I’m the one who froze them).

Here’s the tuna casserole recipe:

Tuna Casserole

1 cup elbow macaroni (I used spirals)
3 oz cream cheese
1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/4 cup milk
1 Tbsp prepared mustard
1 can Tuna, Light, Canned in Water — drained (or 1 pouch)
1 Tbsp. Onion — chopped
1 2-oz. jar chopped pimento — drained (optional)
1 4-oz. can mushroom pieces — drained (optional)
Potato chips — crushed

Cook macaroni according to package directions and drain. Soften cream cheese and blend in cream of mushroom soup, using electric beater or wire whisk. Stir in milk and mustard until blended. Add in drained tuna, pimento (optional), onion and mushrooms (optional). Fold in cooked macaroni. Spray a 1 1/2 qt. covered casserole dish with cooking spray and transfer tuna mixture to casserole dish. Top with crushed potato chips and cover. Bake at 375 degerees F for 20 minutes. Remove lid and bake for 5 more minutes.

Recipe Notes My family LOVES this recipe. I don’t usually have chips so I use crushed saltines.
