Fun Saturday.


We went shopping at Zellers today and I bought $50 worth of loss leaders, including a ten pound bag of flour for 6.99! I also used three .75 coupons for wonder plus bread and since it was on sale, the coupons worked out to my getting a loaf free. We have tons of flour now, including whole wheat, so my plan is to make some whole wheat bread and other bread products like pitas and naan bread. Then we drove a few miles down the road to Enderby and filled up at 120.9 instead of 131.9, which saved us about 5.00. Not bad. We were out that way anyhow. Then we stopped at the Armstrong cheese factory and ate samples and bought some cheese. Besides Walmart, which sells it in a tiny bag, this is the only place my husband has found fresh cheese curds and as a French Canadian, he must have his cheese craving satisfied every so often. We rounded out the day's outing with the home show, trying out the massage chair and sampling things here and there. A great morning!

We've driven past the Armstrong cheese factory, but never stopped. What are the prices like? Is it worth a stop to stock up with home grated (of course) cheese to stash in the freezer for pizzas, etc? We usually go to the fair at the end of the summer.

Forgot to mention this, then hit wrong button trying to post last time. I don't know if there is an Extra Foods/Superstore in your area, but watch their flyers or stop in when you are going by (sometimes it isn't advertised) because they have had their club pack flour, unbleached, white and whole wheat in the 10kg bag on for anywhere between 5.98 and 7.98 a few times over the winter. Flyer is also on line if you don't get it in your paper.

Hi Karen, the cheese factory prices are O.K. sometimes they mark things down too. The variety is the fun part and the samples!! Thanks for the tip on flour.
