Fry's Bargain Meal of the Week - sales flyer 2/18 - 2/25/09

I apologize for the slight delay in posting my suggestions for menus this week based upon this week's sales flyers. Recipes to accompany some of the below menu suggestions will post later this week for your convenience.

I feel very fortunate to be involved with $5 Dinners' new feature, Bargain Meal of the Week. Each week, I will be posting a meal that you can make based upon the items on sale at Phoenix and Tucson area Fry's grocery stores. Meal ideas appear below as well as a list of items on sale that work within each meal.

Meal #1
- chicken in a haystack with green salad
Items to purchase on sale for this menu
Foster Farms Boneless skinless chicken breast - $1.67 per pound *
Dole Salad Blends or Kit, 5-13 oz. bag - $2.50
Items to purchase on sale for this menu
Center Cut Pork Loin Chops - $1.77 per pound

Meal #3
- beef roast with roasted carrots and potatoes
(a bit of a repeat from last week, but the roast is a great price again this cycle)
Items to purchase on sale for this menu
Boneless Beef Bottom Roast - buy one get one free - $4.99 per pound
(the secret that makes this a great price is to try and get two packages as close to the same weight as possible!)

* - This is a definite STOCK UP price on Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast! Consider buying extra (limit 4 packages) to keep in your freezer for future meals

Recipes have now been added - click on the title of each suggested item to link to the full recipe on our sister blog, One Thrifty Mamma Recipes!

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to tune back in each week for meal updates!
