The deals are really starting to roll in!

Holiday shopping seems to be in full swing online right now with some incredible deals!

I can’t post all of them but if I see and really great deals on some popular items for you all I will try and post most of them here on this little blog of mine. But even better “Like” my Facebook page Here to see even more deals that I come across.

(Most of the deals I will post will be found either at Amazon or Target. Please remember that Amazon prices can change at any moment in time. So be quick☺)


Here is the first deal I came across I wanted to share with you all:


The Little Mermaid: Diamond Blu-ray Edition only $15.99!! Found Here on Amazon.

Great price people, especially since it was just recently released and on Blue-ray.


Easy Basil Balsamic Salad

Summer comes along and so does a change in the menu at my house.  We like salad, like most people, but man did it get boring after a while.  Then my mom told me about a salad she used with all basil and no lettuce.  To be honest it sounded a little gross and overwhelming at first to me.

Don’t get me wrong, I love basil, I put it into any pasta dish I make and more. I was worried that it would be a little “basil over kill” for it to be the main base of a salad.

Anyway, she made some one night during a  visit…and I was hooked. ♥


The items you need to make it are:


-Fresh Mozzarella Cheese

-Greek Olives


-Balsamic Vinegar

-Olive Oil

Now you can put the ratio for these ingredients however you like. I use 4 oz of basil, 1/4 cup cut Greek olives, about 4 oz of fresh mozzarella cut in small cubes, 1/2 croutons, 1 tbsp olive oil and about 2-3 tbsp balsamic depending on how strong you would like the flavor. Just make it anyway you like.

Now I get all my ingredients (except the balsamic vinegar, tell you later) for this salad at Trader Joe’s.
They are they only store I have found to carry a large enough package of basil with out me freak’n out in the produce section, can’t believe what some store charge for the stuff. So go to Trader Joe’s, you will $ave a bundle…
Up here in Washington at my Trader Joe’s it’s a 4 oz package of organic basil it’s $2.79 and regular $2.29.
imageThe other ingredient that really makes this salad so awesome is the balsamic vinegar. I have made this salad with the balsamic vinegar from Costco many times but my absolute favorite is to use an 18 year aged balsamic vinegar I found here locally and I don’t think I can ever go back!
It’s so flavorful and a little thicker than your run-or-the-mill balsamic.
My husband is hooked on it, my family and extended family all fell in love with it during a visit a few years back. Now every time they come they have to get a bottle or two to take home!

This is what it is:image…yes you can order it online if you aren’t here in WA 🙂

This stuff is so good I have even put the Strawberry Balsamic one this company makes on steak…I know weird right?

But it’s that good people!

Black Friday is almost here…

Happy Thanksgiving and happy deal hunter eve! LOL

I myself am not doing anything at all for Thanksgiving 😦 All my family and close friends live in another state, my sister (who lives by me) is working a lot, my husband, daughter and myself are all very sick. So the only thing I got up to do yesterday was make up a batch of homemade beef stew for us all…and that might be what we will be having again today. Pretty fancy stuff for Thanksgiving right?

So anyway have you check out Amazon’s deals lately? There are going to be some good ones today. For example Brave Blu-ray for only $8.96, True Blood season 4 $9.96, Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part1 $8.96 and many more.  Tomorrow looks like its going to be a good day for movie deals too.

Here is the link below:
I myself might just get bundled up to try and venture out a little tomorrow morning 🙂
