...has gone in the crock-pot tonight.
We went to pick up the pixie's refill on her Zantac syrup on Monday or so. Sam's Club is awesome--her generic Zantac in the dose size and strength she takes would be around $50 per month, but for one of their incentives. Sam's Club offers two tiers of memberships to regular non-business customers: their $40 per year membership that we held for almost nine years*, and the upgrade membership for $100 per year.
That upgrade in membership took the pixie's prescription acid blocker from $50 per month to $30. Well worth the difference in cost--it paid for itself in three freakin' months.
We've also scored some pretty good deals on the rest of their incentives, like $4 off a package of roast, $2 off hamburger (which is a $1 cheaper per pound for the 90/10 we get than Wal-Mart sells their 80/20 for).
Last deal wasn't one of the incentive deals, but was one I could not walk past. Chuck roast for about ten cents more per pound than Wal-Mart's current price on 80/20 hamburger meat.
So, I grabbed a package. Had two 2 1/2 lb roasts in the package. I wrapped one up and dropped it in the freezer, and put the other one in the crock pot, on low, on a bed of potatoes and sweet potatoes, with a package of dry onion soup mix rubbed into the top. It should be done around lunch time tomorrow.
And the leftovers are going to make great sandwiches.
*I highly recommend a membership in either Sam's Club or Costco, or some other big warehouse club store. Then, figure out what you'll use and what you won't, and make sure you figure out unit costs so you don't buy a name brand from your club that is more expensive but not better than your local grocery store's house brand.
