Strawberries

Here's the place to share your meal ideas for the evening, post where you bought the ingredients frugally and even share a recipe if you would like. If you need some inspiration for your own dinner tonight, this may give you some helpful ideas for what to make with all the great deals you have bought on sale recently.

What's on your menu tonight?

    jdouglas13- thank you! I love trying unusual flavors... and usually they work lol! I'd be happy to share any recipes in the future!!! And if any of you have any ideas, pass them my way ;-)

    Faye- I do! It's more of a hobby, but I LOVE it! Over the next few months, I'm going to focus even more on recipe matchups with what's on sale... so much fun!!! ;-)

    FYI - the Bird's Eye chipotle chicken was not my favorite. Will not buy again. Kids didn't love it either.

    Good question, jdouglas - RFB - do you have a food blog?

    I'd love to help you out with that watermelon, Faye, but our 2013 allotment has reached its limit LOLOLOL!

    My DW took me out for a late lunch today. Since we only eat out maybe once a year, it was a rare treat. Fish and chips from Skip's Fish Shack in Apex. Yum!

    RFB, I love the way you cook. Your menus always include something really cool and creative. Do you have a blog?

    wildfrenchrose - that Weber's cajun seasoning on the sausage and peppers sounds great! Thanks for the idea.

    I had planned to have lasagna tonight but it is too hot to run the oven so we are having Bird's Eye Voila chipotle chicken and pasta from a BOGO deal with coupon a few weeks ago. Sides of croissants and watermelon. Yes, we are still working on the same watermelon, jdouglas. lol

    I am planning the lasagna for tomorrow night when it is supposed to be much cooler. Hurray for Fall!

    tgirl: steaks....yum.

    We are having BLT's!! It is a big favorite at our house! I bought the bacon a few weeks ago when it was 1.99 at Kroger, we are going to have Kettle brand chips w/it that we got from Kroger for .49 a bag paired w/ the buy 5 save $5 promo and the 1/1 coupon from coupons.com (zip 18051) and fresh fruit salad from Kroger and HT sales this week! Asian pears .99 lb!! Love that deal!!

    Spaghetti using sweet Italian sausage that I got at one of the SD months ago at HT and froze. May make some Fleishmann's bread that I got at HT and a salad!

    Hamburgers (Prime Rib burgers purchase a HT marked down 4 for $2.79), sweet potato fries/reg fries and I may try yucca fries and salad.
