Great prices on alternative items: Fred Meyer has a coupon for hamburger helper 10/$10 it is also included in the albys $30/$15 sale and is a steal--especially if you have manufacturers coupons to boot! Freddy's also has a coupon for 10/$10 half gallon of milk, a great price! If you need potatoes don't bother using the Albertsons .25/pound potatoe coupon. The Saar's coupon is better $2.99 for 15 pounds is less than .20 cents/pound! The Albertsons price on grapefruit (3/$1) is a great price but don't buy the oranges at that price; too expensive. Lastly, the darigold sour cream coupon from Saar's is a pretty good price too: 99 cents.
A few items from this weeks menu:
Cold Cereal for breakfast, yogurt for snacks, The kids will have snacks in their lunches for a few weeks and the Minute Maid will restock my dwindling stores of lunch drinks. For dinners we'll have Saucy pork chops over rice, Gyros in homemade pitas, and hand-tossed pizza. Next week I'll likely defrost a frozen chicken for Roast chicken and chicken soup and chicken enchiladas.
Albertsons claims in their ad that this month is Macaroni and Cheese month. I read on a different blog that the author made mac and cheese by melting cheddar onto cooked noodles. That totally grossed me out! Why do that when 3 more minutes of stirring and 4 more ingredients makes you REAL macaroni and cheese?So here is my macaroni and cheese recipe. (Use your newly purchased cheese and serve with warmed frozen vegis).
