Revamping Leftovers!

How far do your leftovers go? One of my goals this month has been to use leftovers in a better way. I am notorious for making too much food, so that we will extra for quick dinners and lunches. Then the next day, and typically the night after that, we decide to eat something else. What I am left with is many containers in the refrigerator that after a couple of weeks we don’t even recognize what it once was before it turned a nasty, moldy green.

These have been my leftover revamps this month:

  • Leftover rice, mixed with a tablespoon of rice vinegar, onions, carrots, and a flat egg rolled up and sliced= Perfect Fried Rice!
  • Leftover steak became steak nachos
  • Leftover chili became a stuffed baked potato

How do you use your leftovers? I would love to hear some of your creative ideas!

Vow Renewals in the Great Smoky Mountains

 

Here at WeUseCoupons we have been a family for years. We have been through ups and downs, growths and changes. One thing that has been consistent is that many of us have become life long friends. Some we have met or will meet face to face. Others, we are friends through the internet, emails, and phone calls.

You have seen me write quite often about my husband, Robert. Many of you were there for me when my son went off to Marine Corp bootcamp 5 years ago, and were there through his deployments. He served his 4 years and is now getting ready to get married and living locally.

What some of you do not know is that I had gastric bypass January 2015. It has completely changed my life and is the best decision I have ever made. Some of you also do not know that I renewed my vows this summer in The Great Smoky Mountains. Those of you that are friends with me on facebook, you have shared my journey, but for those of you that are not, I thought I would share my vow renewal story with you here.

This is my facebook post from the night before our vow renewals in July-

Reflections tonight…Tomorrow, I get to marry my best friend all over again. We have had many questions over the last couple of months about our vow renewals…it’s not our anniversary; that is March 13. It is not a significant year; it’s been 12 years. It’s not a big, elaborate event; it’s just the two of us. I’m not wearing my wedding dress; it’s way too big! It’s a simple ceremony, a lace dress I bought from Belks, he will be in khakis and a button down white shirt. My mom made me a beautiful bouquet. We will be the only ones there, along with the minister and photographer. It will be along the banks of the Pigeon River.

So why now, why just us, and if you know us well enough, I won’t need to answer why in Gatlinburg. Now was the right time. When you lose 267 lbs, you become a different person, completely different. When we went through pre-surgery seminars they warned us about the high divorce rate because of the changes. We have defied the odds.
Because of all the support and love, because of all the days he took care of me through all of this, because of his unconditional love, I wanted to recommit myself, the new me, to my best friend and soul mate. No one understands the entire personal journey I have been through, except for Robert, which is why I wanted it to be just the two of us. I am forever grateful for all the support and encouragement from all my family and friends during my journey. But Robert has walked every step of it with me, cried every tear with me, cheered every pound lost with me, and taken care of me when I wasn’t able to take care of myself.

Marriage is hard. It takes work. It takes forgiveness. It takes understanding there will be ups and downs. I am so blessed to be loved by this man. I am so blessed to renew our vows together. I am so blessed to have a new lease on life to share adventures and bucket list items with every day. Tomorrow, I get to be a bride all over again and I am glowing just as if it was March 13, 2004.

 

Fall is Finally Here!

 

I love Fall!!! It is absolutely my favorite season. Not only does it put me that much closer to my favorite holiday, Christmas, but I love the fall colors, the cooler crisp air, hayrides, firepits, and snuggling under blankets. I pushed my luck with my husband and started decorating for fall before it was even labor day. My thought is that once school starts back at the end of August, summer is over and it is time to move on to Fall!

Now, I haven’t gotten our pumpkins to carve yet but my Fall scent candles, leaves stuck everywhere, dining room table set, and deep orange, maroon, and brown color decorations are throughout the house. I have my Fall wreaths hanging on the front and side doors, and scarecrows sitting on my porch railings.

I love going to Fall Festivals but unfortunately Hurricane Matthew put a damper on that the last couple of weekends. I am looking forward to some fun this coming weekend with festivals and a Boo at the Zoo event at a zoo nearby!

Share your favorite Fall pictures with us!

Zaycon Offers Fresh Meats and Fish At a Great Price!

One of my favorite ways to save on chicken is to purchase my thighs and breasts through Zaycon! I have been using them for several years now and the prices are better than any of my local store prices, and I love that I can buy it in bulk, break it down to the size bags I need (they come in 4- 10 lb bags), and throw it in the freezer. It lasts me forever! We eat a lot of chicken around my house- chicken pot pies, grilled chicken, baked chicken, fried chicken, chicken kabobs, stuffed chicken…this list can go on and on!

The best part is that the pick up process is super easy! Find a location that it is being delivered near you, make your purchase online and then stop by and pick it up during that time frame. SUPER EASY!

Zaycon has a lot more than just chicken though! They have ground turkey, ground beef, Alaskan Cod, and Shrimp. You just need to check the products that will be local to you during the time frame they are delivered.

Zaycon always offers the freshest meat and fish available and an affordable price.

$0.50 off one Pace product 15 oz or larger

 

I LOVE salsa coupons because during football season, baseball playoffs, and holiday parties coming up, we use a TON of salsa! There are so many great recipes but one of our favorites is frying up a lb of hamburger, a lb of sausage, toss both in a crockpot with a loaf of velveeta cheese and a jar or two of salsa and/or picante sauce. EASY party food and easy appetizer for a day or evening of watching your favorite sports game!

hatfield and mccoy1

When we first visited the Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Show, we had no idea how much fun it would be! We spent hours watching the documentaries that have been made about the Hatfield and McCoy’s feud. I could not figure out how they could take that story and turn it into a dinner show that [...]
