The newest round of grocery sales offered some things we were pretty happy about! Fresh pineapples are .98/each this week, and red bell peppers are 3/$1. Organic celery is .98/bunch, broccoli is .98/lb, boneless, skinless chicken (breasts or thighs) is 1.67/lb. Romaine and leaf lettuces are also .99/head, and we have plenty of apples and oranges left from last week's sales. At the end of this week, we will decide if we want to pick up additional produce at the tail-end of the sale. We didn't buy broccoli, because we didn't use up what we have from last week. There is enough to make the soup listed below, so it won't be wasted. We also picked up a 12 lb. turkey this week - they had been marked down to .45/lb. We just had room for one, but what a great price!
Husband has had an Ibotta deal that has repeated a few times for yogurt. With the coupons he found at coupons.com, they work out to less than .17/single serve carton. Later, the deal and coupon got us some for less than 7 cents each! We've been enjoying those with some granola for breakfast and/or snack.
The weather is supposed to be pretty nice this week. Husband has plans to smoke a pork shoulder and some turkey legs and wings. We will package the meat into meal-size portions and freeze the extra. It will make meal prep a lot more convenient for the next several weeks, plus we'll use some of the meat in this week's meals. We have a $10 credit at Pizza Hut (they made a mistake when we ordered carryout a few weeks ago), and we plan to use that on Superbowl Sunday. We have two meatless meals this week - wahoo! Here is our dinner plan:
|98 cents worth of fresh pineapple...it's a few layers deep.|
M - English muffin pizzas, garden salad w/dressing, fresh apples w/caramel dip
T - (smoked) kalua pork, rice, cucumber kimchee, marinated 3-bean salad, fresh pineapple
W - broccoli cheese soup, crackers, sliced apples
R - smoked turkey & vegetable alfredo, salad w/Italian dressing, fresh pineapple
F - chicken enchilada soup w/garnishes (shredded cheese, salsa, tortilla chips, cilantro, jalapeno relish), fresh pineapple
S- falafel, roasted potatoes/onions/peppers/carrots, chopped tomato, tzatziki, flatbreads, carrots, celery and sliced apples
Superbowl Sunday - pizza, vegetable tray, sliced fruit, popcorn, snacky stuff
We have homemade bran muffins baked up for breakfast, plus we have the yogurt. There is cereal on hand for quick breakfasts, and I made some breakfast burritos on Sunday so we'd have several choices for our mornings. Lunches are often leftovers or something quick like some soup or a sandwich.
