Today, we had a birthday BBQ for my dad and daughter - both share the same birthdate. My husband BBQ's vegetarian items and non-vegetarian items. I got a great deal on vegetarian kebobs from Gardein - originally almost $5 for 4 skewers - they were marked down to $1.99 - got 2 boxes and used the a $1.10/2 coupon. My daughter made homemade cupcakes and buttercream icing - yum. My dad brought over a large chocolate chip cookie cake. We had 1 cent coleslaw from Publix (Wednesday's penny item), blue cheese potato salad from Earthfare - buy $5 get 1/2 gallon of organic milk for free deal. Now we have plenty of left overs for easy meals for the rest of week. The gift cards came in time - so, the dog got groomed for a discount - and my husband bought a 3rd remote for the garage. My daughter gave her grandfather a FIAT hat - she is keeping the car. We gave him a $50 Barnes & Noble gift card (ordered at a discount) and my husband added a coupon he got from his sports barber shop for a free hair cut. The weather has been great these past couple of days.
