Remember these / Spring Time Pasta Salad

My mom brought these over the other night when we had salad for dinner! These were before the real bacon bits! I am not a snob at most things, but I forgot how terrible and chemically tasting they were! love ya mom but not these! :) So here I am trying to redo my blog again from scratch, I am so upset that I lost everything and all of my subscribers !
My husband and I had financial trouble several years ago and we eventually got our finances back on track. We said we wouldn't have credit cards anymore, well I guess you should never say never. We have and we have now ended up back into a bad position again so I am going to have to really cut my grocery budget. I have been watching blogs and reading how people do it for a while but I guess I have not tried hard enough! This past week I managed to cut my grocery by 20.00. It is a small amount but it is a start.
The biggest thing I found was the reduced meat at the grocery store! I found skirt steak for 3.00 and lean beef for 1.99 a lb. I also stopped the other day and took a look at the reduced bakery section at walmart. I was able to pick up a bag of pepperoni rolls for 1.50 ad a bog of 4 apple strudels for 1.50 . They were still really fresh! I really want to start learning to use my coupons even though no grocery store doubles around here! I hope you stay along for the ride and help me along the way. I will have recipes and stories to share!

speaking of salad, now that spring time is just about here, here is my

Thanks for stopping by my site. These bacon bits take me back. I haven't had them in years.

The pasta salad looks good.
