The Fort Collins Sunflower is officially a Sprouts now, so I’ll combine those two sales from now on.

As always these are sales for the Northern Colorado area.  Lots of stores run national sales though, so except for meat and milk everything else usually sticks.  If you’re curious about your store simply click below on the store name and enter your zip code for your own circular.

My Meal Plan:

  1. Apricot Stuffed Pork Roast — the apricots inspired me this weekend.  It’ll  take a few hours to cook but I don’t care.  Sweet, juicy pork loin crammed full of plumped up apricots.  Maybe I’ll even sear the outside and rub it in spices.  More than any other meat, pork loin loves sweet and salty.
  2. Chicken Fingers — I really have to take pictures of this.  These take a bit longer and aren’t quite as simple as my other recipes but they aren’t hard.  And they’re delicious.  Saltine cracker crust makes sure the thick chicken breast sections stay juicy.
  3. London Broil — I’ve never done this inside using the broiler, but I’ve heard it’s possible.  I’ll let you know how it goes!

The transition weather makes cooking decisions hard.  I want to pretend that it’s cold, rainy, snowy and time for roasts and long braises.  But it was 72 degrees yesterday.  It’s not brats and shorts weather, but it’s definitely open the windows nice.  I’ve also got pictures of several recipes on the camera, so I’ll get those set up to show you!
