Meal Planning & Sales 5/15-5/21


May 16, 2013 by Lauren

The weather’s warming up significantly so I fear I’ll be using that oven less and less (though, I have a great pork roast that I’ll be doing a post on here in a bit).  Seems like lots of places have basics on sale this week (marinades, dressings, etc) so seriously consider taking a look at your circular and maybe stocking up.  Not a ton of meat, though, so use your freezer wisely.

*note: these deals are for Denver and Northern Colorado in general.  Besides meat and dairy, most everything else is a national sale so check your own circular.


  • Spend $75, get $10 — this is simple, if you spend $75 in a trip they’ll give you a coupon for $10 off (you’ll have to use it by 5/26, but no strings attached)
  • Center Cut Loin Pork Chops – $1.99/lb (great deal)
  • 93% Lean Ground Beef – $3.49/lb (good deal)
  • JIF Peanut butter – $5/40 oz (the big jar, great deal)
  • Milk – $1.99/gallon
  • Chobani greek yogurt – 10/$10
  • Oroweat English Muffins – BOGO (they freeze great)
  • Ball Park Hot Dogs — BOGO (also freeze terrifically)
  • Jennie-O Ground Turkey – $3.99/lb (good price)
  • 12-pack Coke – Buy 2 Get 2
  • Bertolli Olive Oil – BOGO
  • KC Masterpiece BBQ Sauce – $.99

King Soopers:

  • 80% Lean Ground Beef – $1.99/lb (decent deal)
  • Strawberries (1lb) – 2/$3

  • 93% Lean Ground Beef – $2.99/lb (great deal)
  • Large Avocados – $.88 each
  • Zucchini – $.88/lb
  • Daisy Sour Cream – $1.99/16 oz (great deal if you need that much!)


  • Coffee – $7.99/lb (it’s actually pretty good)
  • Blueberries – 4/$5
  • Earthbound lettuce – 25% off (it’s good lettuce)
  • Green Bell Peppers, Cucumbers, Cilantro, Radishes, Green Onions (Scallions) – $.49 each
  • Hass Avocados $.77 each

  • Boneless Chicken – 50% off (depends on their regular price, $1.99 for breasts and thighs is great)
  • Whole Cashews (raw or roasted) – $5.99
  • Handmade Chicken Sausage – $2.99/lb
  • They are also having a “Big Brands” sale for lots of their non Sprouts line stuff.

My Meal Plan:

  1. Pork Tenderloin — do you cook with this cut often?  It’s incredible.  Not only is it quick to cook, easy to make, and low in calories but it’s tasty and forgiving.  I’ll do a post on it just because of that.  And because it should become a summer staple for you.
  2. Chicken Sausages — our Sprouts just added a chicken bratwurst and it’s dang tasty.  The grill will have to get a little of this action.
  3. Turkey Chili — chili can be surprisingly unhealthy, but it’s hearty and delicious. Thanks to a America’s Test Kitchen fool proof method I can make chili again.
  4. Stuffed Peppers — I’m still working on a recipe that I really like for these but I’m getting close.  It involves a crock pot if you can believe it.  And zucchini.  Who’d have thought.
