Food, Recipes, Uncategorized
It is that time of year again! This weekend we made our favorite Pumpkin Scones. All I can say is Wow!  These are truly the best scones I've ever made and eaten. Two years ago I was introduced to the amazing Pumpkin Scone at Starbucks but at $1.95 a piece, it's not the frugal way to go.

I made it to Shoppers today.  When I got there the first thing I did was look for the Double Deal Washington Post newspapers which this particular store didn't carry and then off to the ad rack to pick up an ad.  To my surprise was an ad for this promotion spend $25 and get $10 back.  I didn't have all of the coupons with me.  That's a bummer since it was double $1 and triple up to $.50 but I still got some great deals and you can still too since it ends 4/28/10.
