What to Cook for Dinner?
I was able to find some great deals on produce this week at Everyday Deals Extreme Discount. I was so very happy to see some fruit other than bananas, apples and pears. I found strawberries at just $1 a pound. They were surprisingly sweet for this time of year. Or maybe it was just so nice to have something different, that made them taste so great.
I also found sweet cherries for just $1 a pound too. It was like hitting the jackpot this week with fruit. I picked up 4 heads of organic leaf lettuce for just $.25 a head too. It was just a good day for produce at Everyday Deals Extreme Discount.
My stop at Fred Meyers yielded me a few markdown items. I found ham lunchmeat, Silk dairy free egg nog, and bagels on markdown. I also saw some free range brown eggs for just $1.15 a dozen. But I skipped over them since their expiration date was just a day or two away. I know they would keep for about a week longer, but I opted to pay the $.10 more a dozen to get the eggs that were on sale instead. Maybe it wasn’t a good call, but I just didn’t have time to freeze the eggs for later this week.
I also made my huge shopping trip to Winco Foods last week. I was just too tired after pushing around that heavy cart to lay out the food and take a photo, let alone write up a post. So I’ll just add it to the end of this week.

I also stopped at the bread store this week and purchased 5 loaves of organic whole wheat bread for $5.

Last week I made my big shopping trip to Winco Foods to stock up on our pantry and bulk food items, along with all the items needed for the next 5 weeks of meals. On that trip I spent $149.88. For the next few weeks, I’ll only need to stock up on sale items and fresh produce each week.
Did you find any great deals this past week? I would love to have you share them in the comments below.
