Menu for the week with what' on sale for Feb. 3-Feb. 9

There are a few ideas for main dishes that would be Super Bowl weekend appropriate posted in the past week. And if you still have coupons and a Fry's nearby you are good to go for cheap to free eats for a Superbowl party or at least dinner one night this week. Check out your coupons last Sunday in the paper, you know, the SmartSource and Red Plum inserts. On the back inside page of one of them is a coupon for Wholly Guacamole guacamole or salsa. Use it with the sale price of $1 at Fry's this week and it will be free. Get the salsa and use it for Salsa skillet chicken, posted previously, just a week or a few days ago. The Hormel Chili Masters white chicken chili or other varieties was and is free this week also using the coupon that came out a week or two ago. or use the regular Hormel chili to make macho nachos. Or make a six foot sub using 3 french bread sticks at Bashas' for $1.49 each. Cut off the ends of the french bread except for the 'ends' and lay end to end. Slice down the middle and add your favorite meats and cheeses. Spareribs at Bashas at a great price, .99 lb., see my mom's recipe for BBQ spareribs at the left side. They are a juicy, soupy, saucey kind of sparerib that need to be eaten on a plate with a fork and knife, so keep that in mind if you're thinking party food. Canned tomatoes are cheap, cheap, cheap on the buy 10 Fry's deal. Use them to whip up a chili or Taco Soup. The Velveeta style mac and cheese is cheap on the buy 10 deal. So is Mott's apple juice and a host of snack crackers and snack foods. Nabisco snack crackers, aka wheat thins and triscuits are a great buy on the buy 10 deal. I picked some up last week using a coupon worth a dollar for .88 per box. Asparagus is .99 lb. at Fresh & Easy if you wanted to make a more healthy snack, see the recipe for aparagus beef wraps on the left.

Random thought....If you save a mere $10/month buying sale priced items matched up with a coupon, that's $120/yr. saved. But, you can do better than that. If you save $300/month with coupons and sales that's $3,600/yr. Multiply that by five yrs. and that's $18,000. Eighteen Thouuuuuuusaaaaaaaand dollars! That's a car or several nice trips or bills paid or a college fund or two mission funds or 900 piano lessons. So you may never look at a coupon again and think, it's just a .50 coupon. Go to http://www.pinchingyourpennies/ and spend a few minutes matching up coupons to the sale items. You'll be happy you did.
