Menu with what's on sale for the week of Feb. 23-Mar. 1

Such an up and down week. Do you ever have those? I have a mystery, energy zapping illness(taking antibiotics, I will be 100% soon) and I can be fine one minute and the next reduced to tears. Also the baby boy turned his mission papers into SLC on Wed. Even as we speak someone is throwing a dart to a map of the world to determine his fate. Just kidding, that's not how they do it. So, this morning, as I'm sitting in the church parking lot watching the kids go to their cars after Seminary, I almost burst into tears again. Not sure why or how or whatever. Maybe this is just how it's going to roll for awhile. So, the good news is that you can get the total down this week if you want to omit the Sunny D juice for $1 at Albertson's. Also, see my post several down for how to get a coupon that you can use at Fry's to save you $10. I had to bump the total up over $81 when I realized that I only had 1 doz. eggs listed and no way were you going to make muffins, cookies and have egg muffins and eggs with just 1 doz. eggs. Have a great week.


1-Muffins, yogurt
2-Egg biscuit, Sunny D juice
3-Grapefruit half, toast
5-Muffins, yogurt, strawberries

4-Tuna sandwich, apple
5-Tuna sandwich, cookie
6-Macaroni and cheese
7-Hot Pockets, Coke or Sprite

1-Crockpot lasagna (recipe on right side), green salad, baguette
2-Macaroni and cheese with hot dog coins, canned vegetable
3-Chunky soup, garlic toast with leftover baguette
4-Beef chunks and mushrooms (Beef Burgundy, recipe on right side) over mashed potatoes, biscuit. Or make your favorite stew recipe over mashed potatoes. Just use a little diced onion for flavor instead of spending more on frozen whole onions.
5-Oven fried chicken (recipe on right side under chicken), canned vegetable, cabbage/ramen salad (recipe on right side)
6-Pasta salad using tomato, broccoli, olives, olive oil and lemon juice, and basil with leftover chicken in it. Or use a creamy ranch dressing or mayonnaise instead.
7-Banquet TV dinners.


Sunny D, $1
Maruchan Ramen noodles, 6/$1, buy one at .17
Bumble Bee tuna, .69, buy 3
Fresh broccoli crowns, $1 lb.
Romaine, $1
Cross rib roast, $1.98 lb., buy 4 lbs. at $7.92. You'll need to ask for about a lb. and a half of the roast to be ground into ground beef. The grocer will do it, if you are not shopping at night and asking him to do it after the equipment is cleaned. You might be able to get by with less than 4 lbs. of meat. You know what your family needs and you can see how they have it packaged.
Driscoll's strawberries, $1.49, actually Fry's has them for $1.25, a little cheaper
Gala or red apples, .79 lb., buy 4 lbs. at $3.16
Mushrooms, .99
Brown onions, .49 lb.
Idaho potatoes, 5# bag, .99
Libby's vegetables, 20/$10, buy 2 cans
Bar S meat franks, .88
Bar S bologna, .88
Food Club cheese, $2.77, cheese for lasagna
Barilla pasta, 10/$10, buy one
Bashas chicken, .87 lb., buy 4 lbs. at $3.48
Lasagna noodles, I've allowed for $1.99
Bashas cottage cheese, $1.39
tomatos, I've allowed for $2.00 lb.
Olives, I've allowed for $1.50

My total came to $44.08, a little short to use the Fresh and Easy $50 coupon, so you may want to buy some of the things that are not on sale at Bashas at Fry's to get it to $50 and then save $10. Or used the $3 off Fresh and Easy coupon. Every little bit helps.

Green cabbage, 2lbs./$1
