Meal Planning & Sales 6/5-6/12


June 7, 2013 by Lauren

Looks like some of us are digging into our freezers this week.  There are a few high notes (that 7-bone roast is a pretty good pot roast and the chicken thighs are beyond flexible).  It’s cherry season so pick some up for a nice treat!  And if you’ve never had Annie’s Macaroni and Cheese give it a go, it’s delicious.

*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.

My Meal Plan:

  1. Shredded Pork — I picked this up late and haven’t had a chance to mess with it.  I think I want to do an easy crock pot carnitas of sorts.  It’s a super versatile cut that I’ll definitely do a blog post about.
  2. Curry-Yogurt Chicken Thighs — I’ve been curiously watching how frequently chicken thighs are used in slow cook Indian dishes and I want to give it a go.  Maybe that means a yogurt marinade and grill?  Who knows, I’m adventurous.
  3. Chicken Caesar Salad — it’s simple but delicious.  Plus I can cook up some thighs in advance and have them ready.
