Meal Planning & Sales 10/2 – 10/8


October 2, 2013 by Lauren

It’s probably just because of the political mess of this week, but Barilla is on crazy sale, so that’s nice.  Cod is also very nice for fish and chips if you want to tackle that.

*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.

  • Barilla Pasta – $.77/box (cheapest I’ve ever seen it)
  • Boneless Pork Loin – $2.99/lb (good deal)

  • Strawberries – 2/$3 (1 lb clamshell)
  • Acorn, Butternut, Spaghetti Squash – $.88/lb
  • Rump Roast – $2.99/lb
  • Wild Caught Cod – $4.99/lb
  • Chicken Breast Tenders – $2.49/lb (good deal)
  • Wild Caught Pacific Salmon Filet – $5.99/lb

My Meal Plan:

  1. Stuffed Pork Loin – It’s just getting cold around here so I think it might be time for some good roasts!  I think I might play with some other options here.  Pork and sweet don’t always cut it for me so I think I’ll pull some fennel in to the mix.
  2. Butternut Squash Rigatoni – Squash is usually only like $1.25 a pound, but it goes on sale and suddenly I NEED winter squash.  It keeps weeks and is so satisfying.  Plus: pasta.
  3. Garlic Rump Roast – This isn’t anything fancy, my mom used to call it a poor man’s prime rib.  It helps that you shove garlic cloves inside too.

I love the first week of chilly weather.  This is, by far, my absolute favorite time of year.  Slow cookers, ovens and long cooked stews or soups.
