Bargain Meal - Martin's 6/22/09

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.

Good deals @ Martin's this week include:
80% Lean Ground Beef - $1.69/lb (a stock up price in my book)
Pork Chops - $1.79/lb
Chicken Thighs or Drumsticks - $0.99/lb
Pork Shoulder Roast - $0.99/lb

Green Beans - $0.99/lb
Cantaloupe - $2.00/each
Russet Potatoes - $1.99/5 lbs
Red or Green Seedless Grapes - $1.89/lb (not the best, but okay)
Celery & Carrots are usually about $1.00/lb or less as well

Here's my Bargain Meal from Martin's the week of June 21-27, 2009

Hamburgers, Cantaloupe chunks, Carrot Raisin Salad or Roasted Green Beans

Hamburgers on the grill = $2.69
4 hamburgers (1/4 lb each) - $1.69
Buns (bought on sale previously) - $0.50
other toppings = ~$0.50

Carrot Raisin Salad = $1.70
1 lb @ $1.00/1 lbs = $1.00
Pineapple = ~$0.50
raisins, mayonaise, sugar = $~0.20

Cataloupe = $1.00
Jumbo Cantaloupe on sale 2/$4.00
½ of one cantaloupe = $1.00

Total cost $5.39 for 4 = $1.34/person

The goal is a meal for 4 for $5.00, but this comes pretty close. Other possible side dishes from this week's sales include:
