There are some great sales going on at Old Navy this weekend. I went today and got some awesome deals. All clearance was an additional 30% off and I used the printable 25% off coupon. This coupon is good through Sunday 10/30th.
Incredible deals! I paid $1 to $3 each for shirts for myself, my husband and the kids. I bought pants for $3 to $4 for the kids. I bought packages of two pairs of athletic socks for my husband for $0.51 each. I paid around $0.75 each for kids shorts for next summer. I bought myself a great pair of jeans for around $12. I was super excited to find these. I still have some baby weight to lose, but these jeans look and feel fabulous!
The best part was that I was almost shopping by myself. I pushed a sleeping baby around the store in the stroller while my husband watched football at home with the big boys.

Many styles often sell out before the end of a sale.

These cookies are delicious and perfect for this time of year. I didn't have caramel baking bits, so I substituted chopped caramels. When hot, the cookies tend to stick to the cooling rack so I put parchment paper on my cooling rack as well as my baking sheet. This recipe was adapted from Adventures in the Kitchen.
Oatmeal Caramel Apple Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 cups old fashioned oats
6 oz Kraft caramel baking bits (I substituted 3/4 cup chopped caramels)
1 1/2 cups honey crisp apples peeled and chopped
1. In a bowl combine the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
2. Place the butter and sugars in a stand mixer and beat 2-3 minutes.
3. Add vanilla, then eggs and mix for 2-3 minutes more. Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl with a spatula.
4. Pour in the flour mixture, then the oats and combine just until blended. Mix in the apples and caramel baking bits with a wooden spoon.
5. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Scoop dough onto the baking sheet leaving 1 1/2 inches between dough as the cookies will spread.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Let the cookies cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack.

Cuban Black Beans
This is one of my favorite recipes that I have been making for a long time. I have served this for company many times and it always gets rave reviews. It is exceptional with fresh squeezed lime juice.
Serves: 6 to 8
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 3 hours 15 minutes (includes 2 ½ hours baking time) This recipe is adapted slightly from America’s Test Kitchen Family Cookbook
Serve these beans with plain white rice, sour cream, hot sauce, lime wedges and chopped tomatoes.
2 ounces bacon (2 slices), chopped fine
2 onions, chopped medium
1 red bell pepper, stemmed, seeded, and chopped medium
1 teaspoon cumin
6 garlic cloves minced
2 teaspoons minced fresh oregano or ¾ teaspoon dried
6 cups water
1 pound dried black beans (2 cups), picked over and rinsed
2 bay leaves
¼ teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
½ pound chorizo sausage, quartered lengthwise and sliced ½ inch thick (you can also remove the casing and crumble it or use smoked sausage)
¼ cup minced fresh cilantro, optional (I omit the cilantro b/c we don't like it)
To Make Ahead
After cooking, the beans can be cooled to room temperature and refrigerated, wrapped tightly in plastic wrap, for up to 4 days. Reheat over medium-low heat before serving.
