What's for dinner tonight?

Posted April 10, 2013



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 on what to make with all the great deals you have bought on sale recently.

What's on your menu tonight?

Tonight we are having veggie pizza, steamed baby carrots and cantaloupe including:

Harris Teeter dough ball (from the deli) on sale recently for $1.00

Kraft shredded cheese on sale for $1.50 per 8 oz package at Lowes Foods last week with the Kraft promo

Pasta sauce was on sale at HT a few weeks ago for less than $1 for the jar

Green peppers were .69 at FL last week, canned mushrooms were on sale recently (can't remember where I got them), onions also on sale recently, Mario black olives on sale at HT recently with coupon.  I will also throw some fresh spinach on 1/2 the pizza for my husband and I.

Baby carrots (1 lb) were on sale at Aldi recently for somewhere around .69

I picked up a cantaloupe at Lowes Foods today on sale BOGO ($2) and it looks pretty ripe so we are going to have that as well.

    bonnie and justme - I just roll out the dough with a lightly oiled rolling pin. For this pizza, I used the whole dough ball so there was plenty to work with. Sometimes we cut it in half and make 2 smaller pizzas and it does not fill the pizza stone as nicely.

    springtime0327-your menu inspired me. We had calzones on our weekly menu for tonight but it's too hot to turn on the oven. We're grilling chicken kabobs, mahatma saffron rice & steamfresh green beans. A last minute pantry/freezer frugal meal-thanks for the inspiration!

    I think tonight we will be having chicken flautas (chicken from Kroger split breast sale last week and tortillas from the HT old el paso sale a while back) and rice (from FL during one of the previous store brand promos) cooked with corn (HT sale), red peppers (Kroger sale), green chiles and taco seasoning.

    Husband is going to .Net meeting after work (doesn't that sound like fun !) and almost son-in-law out-of-town so Tess and I are going out to eat.

    Grilled pork chops (on sale a couple of weeks ago at Lowe's foods BOGO), steamed broccoli crowns (Lowe's Foods sale)last week and maraconi & cheese (HT elbow pasta, HT shredded cheese on sale a while back). Possibly cantaloupe from Lowe's today, if I can get by there.
