I tend to use proteins as a springboard for meal plans. Split Chicken Breast was $0.60/lb in a deal I spotted at Nob Hill/Raley’s. It’s raining outside, but we’ve got a pot of Chicken Tortilla Soup simmering! I simply added the Hunts Whole Tomatoes, cilantro, garlic, and whole wheat tortillas gathered from the 99 Cents Only Store! So, my strategy was buying the protein from a mainstream store (Nob Hill) & buy the other ingredients from the 99 Cents Only Store. About $5 for a pot of soup that’ll last us two meals! Also from Nob Hill, I bought the Jennie-O Turkey Burgers with E-coupon + $2/1 printable coupon. My find today of Sweet Potato Fries will pair well with those burgers.
A final example of dove-tailing involves Fresh & Easy Market. Last month they offered half hams at only $0.49/lb. I’ll make Ham & Potato Casserole using the potatoes from today’s trip, and Split Pea & Ham Soup as the final dish I’ll squeeze out of my ingredients!
