Meal Planning & Sales 7/24 – 7/30


July 26, 2013 by Lauren

It’s a pretty good sale week for the big stuff.  The turkey breast tenders make me super curious, I’ve never seen them (they’re just turkey breast cut into strips).

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


  • Colorado Sweet Corn – 3/$1
  • Bar S Hot Dogs – $.99 each
  • Bumble Bee Tuna – $.99 each
  • Plums (red or black) – $.99/lb
  • Chicken Thighs or Drumsticks – $.99/lb
  • Bone In Chicken Breast – $.99/lb
  • Bertolli Olive Oil – BOGO

King Soopers:

  • Olathe Sweet Corn – 5/$1
  • Milk – $1.99/gallon
  • Sweet Red Cherries – $1.99/lb (great deal)
  • Dannon and Oikos Greek Yogurt – 10/$10
  • King Sooper’s Buns (hamburger and hotdog) – 10/$10


  • Blueberries – 4/$5 (1 dry pint)
  • Green bell peppers or cucumbers – $.49 each
  • Red, black or green grapes – 4 lbs/$5
  • Broccoli or cauliflower – $.98/lb
  • Red bell peppers – 3/$1
  • Boneless, skinless chicken thighs – $1.99/lb
  • Turkey Breast Tenders – $2.99/lb

My Meal Plan:

  1. Skillet Roasted Chicken Breasts — These guys are so easy.  I feel like I get all the satisfaction out of a roast chicken but with less mess, smaller portion sizes, and that ridiculous thyme and lemon dressing.  I’m in.
  2. Steak — I’ve spent a few weeks buying/preparing great steak (it’s a tough life, I know).  I’m going to have two posts come out of it.  One will be a guide to buying meat cuts, the other how to grill a steak.
  3. Corn, scallop and bacon linguine — I feel like pasta, but something lightish.  I have a recipe with seared scallops, fresh corn and a little cream/bacon.

Surprisingly, we’re doing really well on the clean out of the freezer.  I’ve still got that turkey, a couple whole chickens and a decent amount of pork chops/hams (I have a ham problem).
