You know that I frequently recommend Martinelli's sparkling cider, especially for special occasions. It's a refreshing treat that would have gone well on Father's Day had I remembered to put a bottle in the refrigerator before dinner. Instead, I put it in the freezer for a quick chill and went about preparing the rest of our meal. BAD DECISION. At about 9:30 p.m. there was a loud pop - sounded like the ice maker - in the freezer. That's when I remembered the Martinelli's. Since this blog is all about tips, here's an important one: Do not put sparkling cider in the freezer to chill. The cleanup is nasty.
Scanning the ads on Sunday, I realized that you can get a pretty cheap breakfast at your local drug store. Here's the proof:
At Walgreens, Tropicana orange juice is 2/$6 and Oscar Mayer bacon is 2/$5.99 (or BOGO). Add to that English muffins, a dozen large eggs and a 10-pack of Banquet brown'n'serve links at 2/$3 and you have a very resonable meal.
If you're closer to Longs, boxes of General Mills cereals are 2/$5 and a dozen large eggs $1.79. And remember, sometimes breakfast tastes better at dinnertime.
Longs also has Martinelli's sparkling cider for $1.89. You know why I could use another.
