Happy 4th of July!

Wishing you and yours a safe and happy 4th of July weekend!


American Pizza

Love this idea, make a pizza flag!

Pizza flag

6 oz. part skim mozzarella cheese slices

1 Tbsp. Country Crock Spread or butter

2 cups fresh spinach leaves, rinsed and patted dry

1 frozen pizza dough, thawed

1 cup prepared pizza sauce

2 plum tomatoes, sliced in half lengthwise and cut into slices or 1 sliced red bell pepper or a mixture of the two

Crushed red pepper flakes (optional)


Here's how:

Take two slices of mozzarella cheese and stack together. Use kitchen scissors or small knife to cut a few star shapes out of the cheese. Slice remaining cheese slices into 1-inch strips.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Melt butter or margarine in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add spinach and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

Stretch pizza dough to fit a rectangular pan. Spread pizza sauce evenly over dough. Sprinkle spinach over top left corner of dough. Place stars on the spinach. Lay tomatoes (or peppers) and cheese strips in alternating strips on rest of the pizza.

Bake 10 to 20 minutes until cheese is melted and starting to turn golden and crust is starting to brown. Remove from oven and serve with crushed red pepper flakes (if using). Serves 8.

Target Upcoming Clearance

Here is what to look out for on clearance this summer!

Summer Clearance:   All of the items they brought in for summer will get marked down in July.  These items will go as low as 90% off!!    Here are the days the markdowns took place last year (just to give you an idea of when they may happen this year):

  • 50% off happened around July 16, 2013
  • 70% off happened around July 20, 2013
  • 90% off happened around July 23. 2013
Baby, Shoes & Clothing:  We should also see some baby items, like car seats go on clearance to 50% off during the month of July.    We should also see some shoes and clothing get marked down to 70% off this month too.
Patio & Garden Clearance:  The remaining patio furniture  and garden clearance should go down to 70% off sometime in July.    Most people saw these items go to 70% off around July 5th.     There is a very good chance we can see the same happen this year, they need to clear out the department so they can make room for all the school supplies.
School Supplies:  July is a great time to buy school supplies. We should see some great sales as well as coupons for school supplies that can translate to FREE items.   Last year they offered FREE pens, Scotch tape, Sharpies, Rose Art items and more.
