In The Kitchen With Debbie and Food Lion Deals
Just so you'll know, I grew up on a tobacco farm in the South and we did not grow or cook with fresh herbs. I'm sorry, but that's the truth. We grew and ate butter beans, corn, garden peas, field peas, cabbage, collards, chickens, pork and things like that.
Yesterday I cooked a dish using the first fresh basil that I grew myself. Isn't it beautiful!!!!??? I checked at the grocery store and a package containing about the same as the above small amount cost $2.00!
Its Pasta Primavera... Am I not getting fancy?
I looked up Pasta Primavera to make sure I really cooked it! Its an American-Italian dish containing pasta and fresh vegetables. In addition to fresh basil, my version contained mushrooms, garlic, broccoli, chicken, penne pasta and grated Parmesan cheese. The next time I cook it, I will use zucchini and bell pepper.

For those of you that live in areas with Food Lions:
I got some great Food Lion deals yesterday. The cheese was free after using a Food Lion $2.00 coupon; the pasta was 15 cents after using a $1.00 Food Lion coupon; the eggs were 42 cents after using a $1.00 Food Lion coupon.
You can print these coupons HERE and HERE.
If you haven't already signed up for the Food Lion weekly newsletter, you really should. It always includes some pretty good coupons and what I like about it is that they are for produce, meat, eggs and other basic grocery items that you don't normally get coupons for.
There's a three day sale at Food Lion this weekend that I plan to hit. The best deals are 12 packs of Cottonnelle toilet tissue for $4.99 and Arm and Hammer Laundry detergent for $1.99.
Welcome to a new series of posts that I plan to do, called "A Tiny Frugal Tip". They'll be short and sweet, but hopefully you...
