Ice Cold Coca Cola

     When I think back over the days that have flowed past since I first started forming memories, there are certain times that just pop into the front line of my mental vision.  Times when I felt especially happy or times that I felt completely content.  For me a lot of those moments were made special because of family and mealtimes.  That combination is usually a perfect recipe for enjoyment and for making fond memories.  One of the things that was ever present during these moments of mine was Coca Cola.  Coca Cola, alone, has the power to generate the warm 'n' fuzzy.  A lot of you have seen the Coca Cola commercials at Christmas time, right?  I mean, those commercials make the most skeptical man, woman and child believe in Santa!  Yes, I think you know where I'm coming from.  So with that said, let me share with you a memory that always puts a smile on my face. 
     My dad, who has always been a "MASTER GRILLER", loved to grill on the weekends.  He always mixed his own barbecue sauce.  It was a special secret barbecue sauce recipe that he invented himself and it included Coca Cola.  I can still see him now.  He would start out with just a normal "hum drum" bottle of store bought barbecue sauce, dump it in a bowl and start his process.  A little bit of this and a little bit of that, a little more of this and a little more of that.  Mix, taste, mix, taste.  Finally it would be ready for the final crowning ingredient.  You could almost feel his giddiness as he got the bottle opener out (back then the soda pop came in glass bottles that had real bottle caps on them that you had to open with a bottle opener - they weren't twist off).  It was like watching Willy Wonka in his chocolate factory!  He would pop the cap off the bottle of Coca Cola and gingerly pour it in the sauce mixture.  After mixing it in, he would taste it one last time and always exclaim, "Perfect!"  To this day Dad's barbecue sauce is the best I have ever tasted. 
     Finally, Dad would proceed to the grill and faithfully baste each piece of chicken over and over again until it was grilled and ready to eat.  When I was a kid we were only allowed to drink pop on occasion.  Dad's weekend grilling was one of those occasions.  So it would be with huge anticipation that we would sit down for the meal as a family.  As we ate and drank ice cold coke, we would talk about the ups or downs, or both, of the day.  There were six of us total at the table.  With four of us being kids, sometimes there was a little jockeying for position to be heard above the other to be sure but it was a great time!
     You can see now why Coca Cola is a little sweet spot for me.  Someone once said, or maybe I read it on a train stop wall, that it's the little things that add up to one big ball of wonderful!  In the long run each detail weaves together to make for very fond memories of when I was a kid.  And some of the same details, including drinking ice cold Coke and eating Grandpa's secret recipe BBQ, are now making new sweet memories for my own children.

FREE Purex Complete with Zout

Purex Complete with Zout

As much as I hate doing laundry I still recognize the fact that it still MUST be done.  Plus the longer I leave it, it's like mold spores, it grows to epic proportions.  And then I have to deal with silly little comments from the family like, "Honey, this is the 17th day I've worn these socks." OR "After our shower do we have to dry off with paper towel again, or did you do a load of towels?"   So to the laundry grind stone I return. 
You have your choice of getting a free sample of Purex Complete with Zout OR cutting to the chase and printing a $1.00 off coupon from this link here>> http://www.freesamplepurex.com/freesample/  Good luck with your own mountain of laundry.

GROUPON with Frugal Fix


Here is one of my all time favorite money saving sites that I buy from often...  Groupon.com.    Groupon.com offers vouchers for local businesses in your area at DEEP discounts - as in 50%, 75% and I have even bought vouchers for 80% off!!!!!!!  It makes going out to eat as a family reasonable again and actually FUN.  No longer do you have to order just one steak burger and split it six ways just to afford a night out with the family.  No longer do you have to pretend the rest of the family isn't sharing the one Coke that you ordered, even though their ice water is still full at the end of the meal and you just so happen to be on your 11th free refill. 
Each deal is offered for just one day and one day only so you can't dilly dally.  Groupon.com doesn't just deal with restaurants but other businesses as well.  Popular clothing stores such as GAP has been featured in the past (50% off).  Also, such things as cooking classes, spas, photography, pottery classes, you name it, it has probably been offered on  Groupon.com.  In fact, today's offer, in my area, is a $23 oil change, tire rotation and break inspection package (that's a 54% savings). 
And if you think your city, state, or even country isn't participating, THINK AGAIN!  All you have to do is type in your zip code on Groupon.com or search for your country and BANG! you can view the deals in your area.  Don't forget, if your planning a vacation, to search for the deals in the area where you will be vacationing - you'll save a bundle!!
