It is time for Weekend coffee share.

If we were having coffee I would have to tell you about my obsession with flashlights. It is not an obsession……really. I just like to buy them. I use them at night to see what time it is or when I get up in the dark in my motorhome. Sometimes we go to campgrounds with no electricity, so I use flashlights for light so I don’t run the vehicle battery down. Maybe I am reincarnated from a caveman at the beginning of time who stumbled around in the dark and says “I need light.” The thing is though, flashlights stop working for me. I bought a pack of 3 good flashlights at Costco, Duracell metal ones. I used one and in about 1 week it just went black and will not turn back on. All 3 of them did that. That totally sucked. Harbor Freight gives away flashlights. They have a coupon if you buy something you get a flashlight. I have lots of those. I stopped doing that because I don’t need anything from there.They do have great dog beds for $8. They always give 20% off coupons to use for one item. I got some dog clippers and dog beds from there.

I buy chicken from Sam’s club in a big pack. It is $1.88 a pound. I take home the chicken and seal it in those sealer bags. I used to buy the refills at the store and those are so expensive. I looked on Amazon and they have 11″ x 50′ vacuum sealer bags for $20.54 for two rolls. They don’t fit in the sealer but it is so easy to just get a paper cutter and cut them yourself. I measure out 9 inches and cut it and seal the end and them put the chicken in the bag and seal it.

These bags work great. They are not as not as thick as the Foodsaver bags but they work great for freezing chicken or steak.


I watched Wolfgang Puck on HSN. I have wanted his battery operated salt and pepper grinders but never buy them. I told my husband the next time I saw them on HSN I would buy them. I ordered them as soon as I saw Wolfgang using them. I didn’t call in this time either, I just ordered them on the computer. It is much faster than calling on the phone to order. Then I saw him selling a little rice cooker. I got one in orange. That is the color my son wanted. They came in so many pretty colors. It was on sale for $19.95. They always sell out of everything he sells on Home Shopping. I got it for my son because it will be easy for him to come home from school and make a serving of rice. He love rice. He is wanting to learn how to cook food. Wolfgang was using the rice cooker to cook lots of stuff with. He made mac n cheese with it. I watched how he made it and I am going to make mac n cheese in the rice cooker. You can even cook cake in it. I am going to try that, just to see how it comes out. Cake in a rice cooker…..who knew.

I just got them delivered. I am so excited to use them. They are nice.


I also ordered some of the knives he had. I got them for my motorhome. After that I stopped watching him because it makes you want to order everything he has.
