Thanks to Maggie for my awesome new background! :)

So, I have recently decided to become a vegetarian. So recently, in fact, that I am on day 3 of this new lifestyle. I am loving it so far- I'm already starting to feel a little better and a little healthier.

If anyone has any delish veggie recipes or knows where to get coupons for vegetarian items, please pass the info along! :) I can use all the help I can get.

Anyways, I hope everyone is having a fabulous week so far. Don't forget to go to and get your free Diet Dr. Pepper!! :)

Becca's Closet

I heard about the coolest website...

This is an organization that takes donations of your old prom/homecoming/formal dresses and accesories for girls who would really love the opportunity to go to these events but can't afford the clothes.

I'm planning on dropping off a few of my dresses in the near future. If you have any dresses or things you want to donate, let me know and I'll take them with me!

Mirror Mirror... a little Wednesday laugh for you!

Shrek, Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt were all having lunch together.

Shrek said, 'I've always thought that I'm the strongest man in the world, but how can I be sure?'

Angelina Jolie agreed. 'I'm told I'm the most gorgeous of them all, but sometimes I wonder.'

Brad Pitt said, 'I'm pretty sure I'm the sexiest man alive but I've Never had it confirmed.'

They all decided that the best way to find out if their beliefs were true was to ask the famed talking 'mirror, mirror on the wall' to confirm for them whether Shrek was the strongest, Angelina Jolie was the most gorgeous and Brad Pitt was the sexiest.

They agreed to meet again the next day for lunch to discuss their findings.

The next day Shrek walked up with a smile. 'Well, true. The mirror told me that I am the strongest man in the world.'

Brad Pitt perked up and said: 'And I know for sure that I'm the sexiest man alive.'

But Angelina Jolie lifted her sad, gorgeous face and said… 'Who the heck is this Callie White??????"

This week

Okay, this week may be lighter in posting than other weeks. This week, I am keeping myself out of the grocery store! I've gotten SO many free/nearly free items that our freezer, fridge, and pantry are about to burst. This week's challenge will not be about getting great deals, but about getting creative and eating what we already have!

Last night, we had steak sandwiches. I had lots of thin skirt steak in the freezer that I had gotten on manager's special, so I seasoned it and cooked it on the stovetop. We had some leftover Italian bread rolls and mozzarella cheese, so we had delish steak sandwiches.

Tonight... who knows?? :)

Free breakfast at Ikea!

For all you early risers who like to go to the fabulous Ikea and get your shopping done (who doesn't?? That place is AWESOME!)... Free Breakfast at IKEA from February 13 - 16 until 10:30! You can get all the details here. Yum!

Delcious Sweet Potato Crusted Chicken

I got this from and it is SUPER yummy!!

1-2 cups leftover crumbs from sweet potato chips ($.20) Any other potato chip will do!
1/2 tsp salt and pepper
1/4 tsp cinnamon ($.01)
3 chicken breasts ($2.37)
1 egg ($.15)
2 Tbsp canola oil ($.15)
1 butternut squash ($.67!!!)
I went to a grocery store closing sale. Will post details later in the week!6 red potatoes ($1)
1 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil ($.10)
1 tsp Garlic powder ($.05)
Salt/Pepper, to taste
Ketchup ($.10)

1. In mini food processor, grind potato chips/leftover crumbs to make about 1 cup. Place ground potato chips in plastic bag. Add cinnamon, salt and pepper. Shake. Place ground potato chips in bowl or on plate for coating the chicken. In another bowl, whisk 1 egg with 1-2 Tbsp oil.

2. Dip chicken breast in egg/oil mixture. Then dip into potato chips. Cover both sides of the chicken. Place in 8x8 baking dish. Do this for each chicken breast. Bake chicken for 45-55 minutes at 350.

3. Scrub and wash red potatoes. Cut into 1 inch cubes. (I prefer to leave the skin on.) Saute in skillet with 2-3 Tbsp olive oil. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Cook for 7-9 minutes, until soft and tender. I typically add about 1/2 - 1 cup of water to speed up the cooking process.

3. Cut squash in half lengthwise and place face down in glass baking dish. Add 1/4 inch of water to the baking dish. Bake at 350 for 50-60 minutes.

4. Serve sweet potato crusted chicken with butternut squash and sauteed red potatoes. With ketchup, of course! I took a lovely photo of this meal, but I'm a bit baffled as to what happened to it. Poof, it's gone!

Cost $4.80
