Meal Planning & Sales 9/4 – 9/10


September 4, 2013 by Lauren

Clearly the grocery folks think we’re ready to bulk up for winter.  The deals on cookies and chips are ridiculous.  I mean, stock up on oreos while you can, but if you’re anything like us they won’t last for more than a few days in the cupboard.  But what a sale!  Also, Kings Soopers has LOTS more on their mix and match sale so take a look.

*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.

My Meal Plan:

  1. Fancy Salads — I’m going to start pre-cutting ingredients at the start of the week for fancy lunch salads.  Southwest charred corn and chicken, classic caesar, london broil and blue cheese etc.
  2. Yogurt Curry Chicken Thighs — This is the best recipe ever.  I promise this one will be a post on Saturday.  It’s fabulous, thrifty, and packed full of flavor.
  3. Shredded Pork — Pork roasts are on sale.  I think I’ll cook and shred some for tacos, some for tamale pie and maybe freeze some.  The pictures are done for this post too.

I’ve figured out how to delay post things (aren’t you excited!).  So I can do them before I leave town, etc.  The fridge is almost cleaned out but for some strange things (a 28 lb turkey being one of them).  He’ll meet his fate as soon as it cools off enough for me to have it in the oven and then boiling away in stock all day.
