Faithful & Frugal Foodie Friday

Here in Middle TN it is a damp, cold, dreary day...SO I thought what better day than today to share one of my favorite sweet comfort food treats with you...

Anyone that knows me knows that I am a HUGE fan of The Pioneer Woman...It all started a few years ago when Kelley, a good friend of mine introduced me to the wonderful world of Pioneer Woman. There's so much to see...Cooking. Photography. Confessions. Marlboro Man and Charlie. The punks. And then there's the novel...ohhhh...the novel! *sigh* I have been a devout fan every since. So much so, that for the last 2 years PW's recipes have always made an appearance in the classes that I teach and I always make a point to introduce class participants to PW...because the world just needs to know about her...they just do. And now you do too :-)

Not long ago I had the opportunity of meeting Ree (aka PW or P-Dub) in person at one of her cookbook signings. A few girlfriends and I headed out for a fun girl's night out and braved the lines at the bookstore to get a chance to meet Ree, up close and personal.

Here we are...that's Lori, me and Kelley...waiting in line...waiting and waiting and waiting ;-)
It was well worth every minute...I mean hour (or 4 or 5) in line :-) I was star struck! And YES, she is even more beautiful in person than she is in pictures.We had to get a group shot...what a fun night!!!

Well, long story short...when I got my cookbook home I starting flipping through the pages and was amazed to find that one of my fav recipes was not in the book...I had company coming that night and I had a lot of day old bread sitting on the I decided to head on over to the PW website and just print the recipe...but since it's not in the won't be able to find it there either...thus the reason for sharing it on the blog :-)
Without further's the best darn bread pudding you'll ever eat!
Pioneer Woman's
The Best Bread Pudding with Jack Daniels Cream Sauce
2 eggs
2 tablespoons melted butter
2 tablespoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups milk
2 cups sugar
3 1/2 to 5 cups sourdough bread, cut into 1-inch cubes
1/3 cup pecans, chopped finely
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Beat together eggs, butter, vanilla, and milk. Add sugar and mix until sugar is dissolved. Arrange bread cubes tightly in a nine-inch baking dish, keeping the crust facing up around the edges in scattered within the dish. Pour liquid over the bread. Sprinkle pecans all over and bake for 55 to 70 minutes, or until crust is golden brown all over the top.
While the bread pudding is baking, make the Whiskey Cream Sauce:
1/2 cup sugar
1 stick butter
1/2 cup cream
1/4 cup Jack Daniels
Combine all ingredients in a saucepan. Stir constantly over low heat until mixture reaches a low boil. Pour a small amount over the individual servings of bread pudding.

You can go HERE to see the recipe on the PW site complete with an amazing step by step pictorial.
But here's what mine looked like...

Oh My!!! See those little crispy brown edges? Here take a closer look...

Yep, that's them...those little crispy brown edges are the BOMB Diggity, YO! Fo rizzle!!!
(Whoa...where'd that come from???)

Now...see this sauce below?'re gonna want an IV of this stuff...It's really good. Really.

It's butter...and heavy cream...and sugar...with a little kick ;-)
Hey, I never said this was gonna be a low fat dish, now did I? Nooooo, in fact I specifically said "comfort food" were warned...besides, a little butter never hurt anyone!

Here's what you'll need to do...
1) cut a small piece of bread pudding
2) put it on a nice little plate
3) drizzle with some cream sauce
4) eat the pudding, lick the plate
5) repeat!
~ Angel
P.S. you might need to hit the gym on Monday. Sorry about that. Really, I am.
Oh yeah, don't tell PW but I added some cinnamon to the cream sauce...yummo! I may or may not have also added some raisins to the bread pudding. Just sayin'. And you can't prove a thing...'cause I have eaten the evidence...bwhaahahhahaha

Supporting Our Local Businesses

I am a firm believer in supporting our local businesses...The good news is that there are several Spring Hill business owners in our Faithful & Frugal family.

So starting today, I will be posting information about a different business each day. My hope is that this will help you find treasures right in your own backyard that you didn't even know existed before now :-) Alot of the businesses will be offering reader discounts what better time to check them out...

Disclaimer: All the businesses featured are locally owned and operated by people that I personally know and I believe in their businesses.

See you in a bit :-)

HT Super Doubles trip

I ran by Harris Teeter for a few Super Doubles trips...they were out of alot of the things that I went for...specifically the Special K cereal bars :-( But I had already prepared myself for that since I was going late in the sale and at night...both no-nos. I was still prepared with other coupons though and started looking for some of the other deals...I found them and am thrilled :-)
(This post is a bit different than my normal shopping trip bare with me)
I get questions all the time about why we do what we, let's do a little Q&A...shall we?

The Question: Why do I bother using coupons???

The Answer: See these 2 items below? Well, if I had walked into the grocery store and purchased these two items alone...without coupons...I would have paid (according to my receipt)$6.79 for the Nyquil and $3.29 for the Clorox wipes...that's just over $10 plus tax!
Now...take a look at what all I got for LESS than that same $10 bill using coupons:
That's right...I paid $7.93 (including tax) for everything that you see here!!!
2 Wholly Guacamole
2 Organic Valley cream cheese
1 Organic Valley heavy whipping cream
1 J&J baby oil
1 J&J baby soap
2 J&J baby powder
2 Fiber One yogurt (4pk)
2 Splenda granules
1 Splenda sticks
2 Weight Watchers snack cakes
2 Clorox wipes
2 Ziploc containers
1 Nyquil sinus
2 Ivory bar soap (3pk)
2 Lipton tea bags
3 Sun Crystals
8 Marie Calendar's meals
Question: Is it really worth my time and effort to put together deals and use coupons???
Answer: Ahhh...YEAH :-) Let's do the math...without coupons and sales those same items would have cost me about $100.00...but by spending about 2 hours of my time, I got them for under $8.00...that's a 92% SAVINGS!!!! So YES...I think it is WELL worth it!
Question: Do you really find coupons for the things that your family uses???
Answer: fact everything in this picture is something that my family uses frequently. Do you use Clorox wipes? How about sinus medicine? What about organic cream cheese or yogurt? Do you use iced tea or sugar??? How about soap? (I'm hoping
Of course you do...maybe not the brands that I bought...but you use most of this stuff too ;-) So why not get it for the best price? That is the real question :-)
Question: What do coupons have to do with being a better steward of God's blessings???
Answer: That's a grrrreat question...Coupons are just one avenue that we use as a family to be better stewards of God's stuff...I view the money that my family has as a blessing from God...if I can save some of that money by using coupons (being a good steward with God's money) than I can use that money for other getting out of debt, helping other families or sowing seed into other ministries (like our local church, Compassion International, Blood:Water Mission, etc.). I feel that is what God would expect us to do with our blessings :-)
Question: How can I learn how to do this???
Answer: There are lots of ways to make your money work harder and Faithful & Frugal would love to teach you how...Contact us about joining a class or hosting a class at your church. Be sure to join our blog email list to have the most current posts emailed to you. You can also join us on Facebook by becoming a fan on the Faithful & Frugal fan page :-)

Hopefully the local Krogers will be doubling also in order to compete...but we will not know for sure until closer to the actually date...most of the time Kroger won't tell you until the morning that Harris Teeter starts. So you can always call them the morning of the sale :-)

THANKS Frugal Dr. Mom!!!

Publix Penny Item ~ 1/3 & 1/4

The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Sunday 1/3 & Monday 1/4 is:

WELL...there is no penny item!!! All those rumors that have been swirling about the penny item changing to a new date are in fact true...The NEW day for our area is Wednesday.

Here is what I have been able to verify with Mr. Jones at Publix...
1) The penny item will only be available on Wednesdays
2) You WILL have to have the coupon
3) The coupon will be in the Publix ad in the Wednesday Tennessean
4) It is believed that the coupon will also be in the Tuesday edition of the Spring Hill Advertiser News

My thoughts: I don't like this change...but then again I don't like most
This changes the day that I will be shopping, only allows for one day of shopping to get the penny item, as well as changes the way that I have to buy papers...because now we also need to buy the Wednesday edition as well Sunday. The plus to that is that the Wednesday edition often contains other coupons as well. The downside is obviously paying for another paper. But you may be able get a neighbor or family member to save the Publix ad for you :-) If you live in Spring Hill most of you should be receiving the Advertiser News delivered on Tuesdays, so that should be a plus too!

Let me know your thoughts on this by leaving a comment below :-)

Happy Shopping!!

Coupon Preview ~ 1/3/09

WooHoo Happy New Year...the beginning of the year is bringing us a huge coupon week!

This Sunday 1/03/10, you can expect 5 inserts in your Sunday paper:

3 SmartSource
2 RedPlum

IHEARTPUBLIX is reporting that there may be a section in one of the inserts that also contains some Publix coupons, so be on the lookout for them :-)

Also...remember that there may be regional variations, so the larger the paper distribution the better chance of getting all the inserts :-) So pick up the paper with your area's largest distribution (I buy the Tennessean) as papers with lower distribution do not contain as many coupons.

Happy Shopping!!!
