Peppered Pork Tenderloin

My husband’s stepfather’s mother (did ya catch that?) gave us a Peppered Pork Tenderloin for Christmas. It was pre-cooked so I only had to warm it up. Tonight was the first night that I have had any energy since Christmas night – I have been sick on my back for almost a week now. Ugh. So today I was able to get up and do some things today, one of them being cook dinner. So, I made the Peppered Pork Tenderloin, Mac N Cheese (not homemade) and Ranch Style Beans. Nothing great, but this is it.


Terrible photo, sorry! But guess what, I have the black eyed peas in the Crock Pot for tomorrow!!




To the Mart I go

I am headed to the Mart! Going to get toothbrushes (I have a $10 off coupon), puppy chow and dogs Christmas gifts (last 2 I plan on getting with overage!). Sure hope I can do it and spend less than $15!

P.S. – the husband is with me so I may not make it out for $15 or less…grrrr


On my way to major $$

I started couponing about 9 months or so ago. I quickly hit a snag with all of the other things that I had going on at the time (see previous post). Well, I have decided that I need to get back into it. I learned a LOT on my own by just doing my research and finding other blogs/websites that are all about couponing and reading a lot.

Well, I was recently lucky enough to meet Mrs. Lisa, who is an Extreme Couponer! She will be famous soon! =P

After much talk and MUCH work, I got Mrs. Lisa here to Leesville to teach a class on couponing!   We had a successful turnout and a great class! Well!!! Mrs. Lisa told us where she got her AH-MAZING coupon binder and of course, you know it, I went home and immediately ordered a binder and the inserts!

Guess what?! My binder came in today! I sat down and put ALL of my coupons in it (with my husband’s help – he finished clipping what I hadn’t finished clipping yet). I organized the binder into two seperate areas – food and non-food. I further organized those 2 areas into multiple other areas! Anywho! I love it!!! The photo above is a my brand new coupon binder!!

I got the binder from and it is very sturdy, zips up all around, has an external pocket, a handle AND THE BEST PART – a strap!! Easy to carry and won’t spill any coupons out (unless I forget to zip it, which is quite possible!).

I must say that it was probably the best buy for my binder!!


Well, I guess that I think that I do not have enough to do already.
