Today we change the clocks ahead one hour, which should signal spring is on it’s way! YAYY! YIPPIE! But yet I still see three feet of snow outside my window! So this week we’re having a few hearty meals aka soups to warm us up.
This week there were some good sales at the food store, so I didn’t have to take anything from the freezer.
Monday–Roasted Sweet Potato Soup. I’ve been looking forward to a recipe that allows me to use my immersion blender. It was a wedding gift that is still in the box. I’ve heard different opinions on them, so I decided I’ll just have to try it out myself and see if I like it. Do you use an immersion blender? If so, please comment and let me know your thoughts on it!
Tuesday– Roast Chicken with Spring Vegetables with Rice. Chicken pieces are on sale this week for $1.59 at Price Chopper. This is a new recipe, so we’ll see how it comes out!
Wednesday– Crock Pot Ground Beef Stew. I will use ground turkey instead of ground beef. The turkey is on sale at Stop and Shop for $3.99 for 1 lb package. Plus I’m using left over potatoes from last week.
Thursday– Leftovers. Isn’t it nice to sit and reheat a meal after a late night of work! Sometimes I just don’t feel like cooking after getting home at 6:30pm, so left over soup to the rescue!
Friday– Panko Crusted Honey Mustard Salmon with Broccoli. Salmon is on sale for $7.99/lb at Stop and Shop. Since my husband will be in Las Vegas this weekend, this will be a nice, easy recipe to make at the end of the work week.
Grocery list for Stop and Shop and Price Chopper
I don’t always go to two different food stores/week. It really depends on what the sales are and how much time I have on the weekend. But this weekend I wasn’t working at all, so I went to Stop and Shop on Saturday and Price Chopper on Sunday. Trick is to notice when the weekly sales go into effect. Price Chopper isn’t until Sunday and I’ve made the mistake before and walked in on a Saturday!
