Albertson's Bargain Meal of the Week - sales cycle 2/18 - 2/25/09

Here are a few menus that popped into mind while I was reviewing the Albertson's weekly ad for the Phoenix and Tucson metro areas this week.
Items to Purchase on Sale this week for this Meal
Pork Loin Roast - sold whole in bag (but butcher will cut and re-wrap for you free) - $1.88 per pound *
(for this particular recipe, ask butcher to cut at least a portion of the roast into chops - you can then cube the steaks more easily for the sweet and sour recipe)
large red or yellow bell pepper - $1.50 each

Meal #2 - beef roast with steamed broccoli
Items to Purchase on Sale this week for this Meal
Beef Bottom Round Roast - $1.88 per pound
Fresh Broccoli - 77 cents per pound

Meal #3 - an easy Breakfast (or Breakfast for Dinner) option - breakfast sandwiches and fruit
Items to Purchase on Sale this week for this Meal
Grands Biscuits - $1 (final price as part of a buy 10, save $5 promo)
Albertson's brand 18 count eggs - $1.50
Tyson bacon - 16 ounce package - $3.50

* consider buying an extra pork loin and adding it to your freezer for future meals if you have a bit of freezer space
