Vons Grocery Store: Yes, They Do Delivery!

As a chronic pain and myofascial syndrome sufferer, I can't tell you how much I dread the simple task of pushing a shopping cart. The simple act of pushing a shopping cart, loaded with groceries, can leave me with additional muscle swelling and pain for days.

Since moving to Las Vegas, 6 years ago, I use Vons grocery delivery service, once a month.

I usually start on a Wednesday when the Buy One, Get One Free and Club Card specials are updated. Our menus are based around what meats, chicken and fish that are on sale. I'll also stock up on the Buy One, Get One Free of our favorite items. I also add the free items that we qualify for, when spending more than $150.

I look over the list a few times between Wednesday and Thursday. On Thursday, I select next day delivery and time. The 4-hour delivery window is my favorite because I can save $6 on the delivery charge.

The final total is charged to our card after the order has been completed and bagged at the distribution location.

The day of delivery the truck arrives between the selected delivery time. The driver brings you're grocery bags in, advises you if there was anything not available (i also chose no substitutions), I sign, and am given a copy. All that's left to do is put away the groceries!

If you want to give Vons Grocery Delivery a try, *Use Promo Code: EASY7 at checkout for free delivery on your first order. Free delivery codes are not valid for Lake Powell houseboat deliveries or in-store pick up. $49 minimum order required for delivery service.

Pancakes From Scratch - Betty Crocker Big Red Cookbook

I'm a huge fan of pancakes and love making them from scratch.  Here's the recipe that I've been using for years courtesy of Betty Crocker's Big Red Cookbook.

ps I don't add the sugar and ues 2% fat free milk.  I do let the recipe sit for few minutes to thicken.  And when including fruit I serve it at the table.  I don't like to mix it in. 

1 large egg
1 cup all purpose or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup milk

1 tablespoon granulated or packed brown sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt

margarine, butter or shortening for the griddle or skillet.  I use margarine...we don't like the taste of shortening and butter can sometimes burn

Beat egg in medium bowl with hand beater or whisk until fluffy.  Beat in remaining ingredients except butter just until smooth.  For thinner pancakes, stir in additional 1 or 2 tablespoons of milk. 

Heat griddle or skillet over medium heat or to 375 degrees.  Grease griddle with butter/margarine …
