What's for dinner?

Shish ka bobs! And they were good! 

I marinated some boneless chicken breasts in regular old italian dressing today.

Along with button mushrooms, onion slices & bell pepper. 

My friends got a new grill. What a fiasco that was! 

But we scored a good deal! 

I went around with her yesterday looking at grills. We went to our close WalMart first. I thought they'd be marking them down by now to clear them out for other seasonal items. 

But not many places are doing that yet. 

So we looked, took pics of the grills & price tags. 

Went to WalMart, Home Depot & Lowes. 

WalMart came closest to what we were looking for pricewise & what type we wanted.

But we were in another town (towns here are all clustered together anyhow), so went to the Walmart there. They had grills on sale! Cool. One that was already assembled had a little paint chipped area that showed just a little bit of rust. So we talked to the manager of the lawn & garden department. She gave us a 10% discount. Cool! 

The grill was on sale for $158, regular price was $198. The first WM had theirs still at $198. Then we went inside to get a cover & noticed how many boxes they still had of the grill on sale. BUT, the boxes were marked $147. Hmmmm....Texas law has it that items must be sold at the price they are marked & well, they were marked at $147 from a previous sale that they didn't change back! So, they sold us the grill for $147, then the 10% discount. So that covered the price of the cover, so it was like getting the cover for free. Cool Beans! 

Last night, their friend, Aaron cooked pork ribs. 

Tonight, I cooked chicken shish ka bobs. 

Tomorrow night, no cooking -- I get a break! Even better! We have leftovers anyhow. 

Hope all is well with everyone!

  1. Good idea to get it assembled, those things are a pain to put together. I'll let you know when I have some plans for the state parks so that we can meet-up. I will probably stay at least a month in SA to take advantage of a lower monthly rate at the RV park.

    1. I hear you on the needing to get settled & stay for the rate. You'll be busy enough for awhile there anyhow.

  2. That is a great deal. Glad you saw the ones boxed up! Shis ka bobs are my favorite thing to grill...the whole meal in one!

  3. Always love it when we score a deal. Those ka bobs look really good. We use the Italian dressing as a marinade often.

  4. What a deal for sure. And the food looks sooo good.

  5. It really pays to shop around - good for you! Nice looking grill! We used to use Bernstein's Italian dressing for all our marinading, chicken, fish or beef. It was always good.

    1. I've not heard of Bernstein's before. Might have to look for that.
