Ink Jet Printer Cartridges - Please Recommend Your Best Deals!

My family is always looking for places to save money. We used to get our ink jet printer cartridges from Cartridge World for many years but their prices have gone up and their customer service is non-existant.

If you use an online store and have had terrific customer service we would love to hear it.

Thanks in advance!

Do You Like the Angel Food Fish Sticks or Portions?

Then I would love to hear your feedback regarding their Breaded Fish Sticks and Portions. We're not crazy about them. My husband actually describes them as worst then eating fish bait.

Hubby Does Look Good In An Apron!

Well, he wasn't wearing an apron while he was doing housework so I don't have photos for you. But, while I'm still on the mends and my husband's work hours have been reduced he's taken over the housework.

I have to say I'm really impressed with the work he did in the kitchen. He cleaned the toaster crumb tray and the refrigerator!

Guess Who's Cooking In The Kitchen ~ Hubby Is Making Pozole -

My husband and I had some terrific Pozole at a neighborhood Mexican grocery store a couple of weeks ago. It was very flavorable, filling made with red broth version.

My husband told me about his mother's recipe that had a clear broth. Since pork roast was on sale at Food 4 Less he actually bought 2. Today he's planning on making a big pot of Pozole.

•Pork shoulder or roast -- 1 1/2 to 2 pounds
•Canned or fresh hominy, rinsed -- 2 to 3 cups
•Garlic -- 3 to 5 cloves
•Salt -- 2 teaspoons
•Water or stock -- 6 cups

•Cabbage or iceberg lettuce, shredded
•Onion, finely diced
•Limes, cut into wedges
•Avocado, diced
•Oregano, dried

1.Add the pork, hominy, garlic, salt and stock or water to a large pot. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and then reduce heat to low and simmer for 1 1/2 to 2 hours, or until the meat is very tender.

2.Remove the pot from heat. Take the pork from pot and set aside to cool. When cool enough to handle, remove the meat from its bones and shred it with your hands.

3.Add the meat back to the pot and simmer for another 10 to 15 minutes. Adjust seasoning and serve with little bowls of your choice of garnishes so each dinner can garnish his or her own serving.

Last night I attended Saturday interactive online service at The Church at South Las Vegas. Pastor Benny reminded us to not be chasing things.

Trying to fill yourself up with material items will only leave you empty and craving more. What a great message to start off our New Year.

Jesus, fill me up!
