Menu with what's on sale for the week of Mar. 23-Mar. 29

If you'd rather do chili dogs one night or one day for lunch, buy a can of Hormel chili at Albertson's for $1.25, a pack of buns at Fry's for .99 and a package of Bar S meat franks at Bashas for .99. Milk, milk, milk? Where is the cheap milk this week? As a result of not knowing, I don't have it listed on a grocery list. When I find out, I'll post. I'm assuming that this week most people have kids home on Spring Break, so lunch menus are not as portable this week. You can adapt to fit your family better. Bashas has some great "Day only" specials this week. To get the crusty bread for .98 that I have listed on one of the dinner menus, you will have to get it on Tuesday. Also not on the menu or grocery list, but Asparagus for .99 lb. on Sunday, limit 5 lbs. Not sure if Asparagus freezes well or if it goes to mush. I would guess it goes to mush. And fresh ground chuck, limit 2, for $1.99 lb. on Sat. And killer price for cake mix, Pillsbury cake mix, .59, limit 4 on Monday only. Dulcinea mini seedless watermelons, 2/$4 at Safeway. I had them originally on the menu but took it off b/c the total exceeded $80. Also ground turkey at Safeway, Jenni O ground turkey, Fri.-Mon., Buy One, get one free at $6.29 a package. So if you wanted to switch out the two packs of ground turkey for the 5 # of ground chuck, you could. You would have less meat for the turkey burgers on the lunch menu, but it's your call. You would be getting less quantity but you would be saving $3 or so. Fry's had Tilapia for $3.99 lb. I think that's a good price for Tilapia. Bashas has Smucker's grape jelly for $1.69. If the corn muffin Jiffy mix is also included in the sale at Bashas, you might want to add one of those for enchilada night, it's an option. Not sure why I can't single space the entries that I made this morning but the entries last night are single spaced, so sorry for the inconvenience and if this makes for an 8 page list.
