Sandwich Night (the usual for our very busy Monday nights!)
Deli Smoked Turkey (from Food Lion using $1 off $5 Food Lion Deli coupon posted on the Wednesday grocery deals post)

Fresh pineapple ($1.99 for whole pineapple at Kroger last week)


Baked Ravioli with pasta sauce and parmesan cheese Frozen Ravioli BOGO at HT through 2/23 – using 2 12 oz packages) This is a great dish to batch cook. Make 2 pans of the baked ravioli and freeze one to use in a couple weeks.

    Thanks tot! So far so good - kids have not been sick and hubby and I are well now. Bleaching the house alot these days! lol

    Sorry to hear that you and the hubby have had that nasty bug. Sure hope the lil ones don't get it. Hope you feel better soon.

    Thanks kab! I love to hear that you are already saving money!

    We had a total meltdown of the meal plan this week! I had the stomach bug at the beginning of the week and now my hubby has it so neither of us has been eating much at all. I certainly could not imagine having quesadillas tonight or ravioli last night. The kids have been enjoying some easy favorites for a few nights including pasta, tofu, Green Giant cheesy rice and broccoli and lots of easy Steamfresh veggies! I will say that this has kicked off that diet I keep talking about! Food just has no appeal (shocking, I know). I guess this is a good example of why it is important to always have some easy to make, healthy foods that the kids will eat in case of parental stomach bug!

    Thanks for sharing the London Broil recipe - I plan to try that one! I enjoyed your class the other week and I'm saving sooo much money!!! I can't thank you enough!

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 23, 2010

    Yep - all my posts here feed into Twitter. I don't plan on doing a WRAL facebook page anytime soon. I already have too much to keep up with!

    Hey Faye, I see you are on Twitter, thinking about Facebook? Just wondering. :)

    Best way to do London broil is to marianade it for a couple of days and cook it on the grille about 6 minutes on each side. Yummy.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 22, 2010

    Oh - the london broil is on sale at HT BOGO for $2.64/lb, not $2.59 as I posted earlier. Not a big difference, but I wanted to make sure I shared the correct info.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 22, 2010

    Happygirl - you probably cooked it too long and it was really tough. Does that sound about right? It can get tough fast on high as well. I like my london broil cooked on low for about 6 hours (longer if it's a larger cut of meat).

    Great job on making a meal plan this week, tot!

    I FINALLY done it! I sat down and made a meal plan for the week. Might have to change one night to London broil. That sounds really good. We eat lots of garlic.
