I was craving blackeye peas and mashed potatoes today. Maybe it was a pregnancy thing. I grew up in the South and one of my babysitters when I was little, Ms Ruth, made the best blackeye peas and mashed potatoes for lunch. It was my favorite. This recipe is adapted from Serious Eats Recipes.
1. Soak the blackeye peas
3. Add the onion, garlic, oregano (or Italian seasoning), and black pepper and cook, stirring, for about 8 minutes.
4. Add the drained peas, bay leaves, salt, and 6 cups water. Simmer gently with lid tilted until desired tenderness is reached, about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
5. Stir in the Tabasco and serve.
I was shopping in Target yesterday and noticed a display of nice hams that were 1/2 price. I bought the smallest one they had, 8 1/2 pounds thinking that it would make a couple of nice meals and then I could freeze the hambone and extra meat for soups and recipes. It was marked down to $1.49 a pound. Pretty inexpensive per pound for a nice spiral sliced honey ham. I went to Meijer yesterday too and their hams were also half price - a little less. I think around $1.29 a pound. We had delicious ham for dinner tonight and have some in the fridge for sandwiches and dinner tomorrow night. I froze the rest of the meat and the hambone for soups and recipes. I spent around $12 on the ham, but I will be able to make several meals out of it.
There is a good deal at Target this week on Huggies and Pampers jumbo packs of diapers and training pants. They are all on sale for $8.99 and when you buy three, you get a $5 gift card at checkout. Combine this with coupons and you have a really good deal. I was able to use two Pampers coupons each for $2 and a Huggies Pull-ups coupon for $1.50. After coupons and the gift card deal, I paid $5.49 a pack.
You could get Huggies diapers for as low as $4.49 a pack with these printable coupons. Here are some Huggies printable coupons.

I was recently sent a bottle of Purex Complete with Zout to review and giveaway. I have to say I LOVE it! I tried the free and clear version since I have young children. I am not completely loyal to my detergent brand because I look for good deals and will try other brands, but I have generally been a fan of Tide Powder detergent (the free and clear version). I used the entire bottle of Purex Complete with Zout before writing this review so that I could accurately describe the product and its results. Again, I have to repeat myself - I LOVE it! I like this detergent more than Tide.
Purex Complete with Zout is a detergent and pretreater, all-in-one. Stains came right out of my boys clothes. Our whites were noticeably whiter. My husband one day said "I think the white stripes on my sweatshirt have gotten whiter". I told him I had noticed whiter whites too and thought it was the Purex Complete detergent. I will be buying this detergent in the future.
A lucky reader will win a coupon for a free bottle of Purex Complete with Zout detergent! Winner will be selected using random.org.
