There is a closeout outlet in our area called Ollie's. Sometimes you can find a good bargain there. We went there over this past weekend and I decided to look at the cookbooks. I got this Hershey's cookbook for just $3.89. I love anything made with Hershey's. While this has some recipes using Hershey chocolate baking chips, the majority of them use Hershey's powdered cocoa which is what I prefer to bake with. Can't wait to try some of the recipe cards.
In the back of the book, there are tear out recipe cards for everything in the book. I was thinking that would make a nice gift for someone. Bake the goodie and gift wrap it with the recipe so they can make it themselves any time they want.
Hubby and I have been debating getting a real tree this year. We haven't had one since the late '90's. Some of the local tree lots are already putting them out so I have been comparing prices. I just need a 5 1/2' - 6' one. I found some for as low as $18.00.
Before we make a decision, I decided to check prices on tree stands. If I was going to have to pay more for a tree stand than I will a tree, I won't get one. So I looked at Ollie's Outlet for the tree stand and they had one like I wanted.
When I saw the price of $3.29 I decided that yes, we will have a real tree this year. We already have some lights I bought on clearance one year.
I checked the mail yesterday and found one of my Pyrex trades had arrived. I have been so excited to get it. It is the Town and Country casserole. I can't wait to use it.
The sweet lady who traded me also made a cozi to go around it. That was so nice of her. I love it.
All in all, it has been a great week so far.
