I'm trying something new today and we'll see how it goes.
Each Monday, 5 Dollar Dinners hosts a Bargain Meal of the Week round up. Frugal Shoppers all over the blogosphere post a menu plan using the items that are on sale for the week at their local grocery store.
Here's my menu from Martin's this week for a family of 4:
Honey Garlic Chicken, Corn on the Cob & Roasted Green Beans
Honey Garlic Chicken
2 lbs @ $0.88/lb = $1.77
(not the best price, but still pretty good)
Spices ~ $0.40
Corn on the Cob
4 ears @ $5/$2.00 = $1.60
Roasted Green Beans
1 lb @ $1.49/lb = $1.49
Seasonings & spices = ~$0.20
(In this recipe I often use pecans or walnuts that I've bought on a good sale or leave them out - the green beans are still yummy.)
Total cost $5.46 for 4 = ~$1.37/serving
The goal is a meal for $5.00, but this comes pretty close.
Do you shop at Martin's? If so, what are you putting on your menu this week?
If Martin's isn't your store you can visit 5 Dollar Dinners to find other bargain meals.
