Gluten Free Shake and Bake....Yum!

I know it's been a long time since I have posted! I am spending my time posting on Instagram. It's what I was looking for,a way to share deals instantly! I have found lots of like minded savers and really enjoy it. If you want to check it out you can go to Instagram online or on your phone by getting the free app. My link is at the top right hand page of my blog. I found this chicken at Save On the other day. It seems Thursday morning might be the best day to score awesome clearance meat deals! We used to love home made shake and bake but since hubby's Celiac diagnosis we haven't had it. I decided to try making it by substituting gluten free crackers and flour. I was skeptical but I think the reason it turned out so yummy is because of America's Test Kitchen's gluten free flour mix. You can find that here.

Homemade Shake and Bake - (from the Tightwad Gazette)

4 cups ATK flour
4 cups ground gluten free crackers or cracker meal
4 tbsp salt
2 tbsp sugar
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
3 tbsp paprika
1/4 cup vegetable oil
Mix together. Put in Ziploc or well sealed container, store in fridge. Use 1 cup in a Ziploc bag, wet chicken and then place in bag, shake to coat. Place on cookie sheet and bake at 400 for 40-45 mins.

Zweet Money Saving App Now Available for Android Devices

Zweet money saving app now available for Android devices The Zweet money saving app is now available for Android devices. I have been using it on my Ipad for awhile now and really like it. As you know there are quite a few money saving apps out now.
1.Checkout 51 was one of the first, and is available on Apple and Android devices(if you haven't signed up and want to my personal link is here you will get $5 for signing up before Sept 3 and uploading a receipt within 60 days.)
2.Snap Saves also available on Apple and Android devices
3. Cart Smart available only on Apple devices
4. Zweet now available on both Apple and Android devices

Every little bit helps these days with our ever rising grocery costs. I find the easiest way to use these rebate apps is to sit down when I get home from grocery shopping(who doesn't need to sit down after that!?) and quickly scan my receipts for any qualifying purchases.
The things I like about Zweet are that they usually always include fresh produce in their rebates, and they don't sell out like the Checkout 51 and Snap Saves ones do(at least not yet). I have been a member of Zweet since April and haven't yet cashed out. Cash out is at $20. I am at $14.25.
Checkout 51 I have cashed out $85.75 so far this year.
Cart Smart $10.50
Snap Saves $22.50
That's a total of $133.00 in cash rebates on groceries I was buying anyways! No coupons required! But, if you use them you can double your savings!
Do you use these apps?

Mango, Brown Rice, Black Bean and Veggies Salad

014
You've gotta try this salad! Seriously, it's so good and tasty and easy. I found the original recipe on Pinterest here. I was menu planning and craving some black beans. I cooked my dried black beans in my Crockpot the day before. That's easy! It took a little planning as I soaked the beans overnight Thursday then cooked them on Friday on high for 3 hours then low for another 3 hours. Rinsed and drained them, froze some and kept some for this yummy salad.Friday night's supper was stew kabobs and brown rice(this is the brown rice from Costco, very nutty tasting), making extra rice so that we'd have leftovers. I modified the recipe for the salad to fit what we had on hand. So here it is.
Mango, Brown Rice, Black Bean and Veggie Salad
1 Mango 
1/2 Green pepper
2 Carrots
1 cup black beans
2 cups brown rice
Cut up all fruit and veggies into small pieces. Mix all ingredients together.
Dressing
3 large limes squeezed for juice
2 Tbsp honey
1 tsp ginger
Mix all together and either pour over the rice and veggies or serve on the side. I was skeptical about the dressing so we had it on the side....It's a great dressing!  Enjoy!
