One of my goals this year for this blog is to share with you some how I prep meals based on the deals I get from the weekly Wegmans coupons and deals list.
I want to share with you not just the deals, but actually how they can turn into cheap meals to feed your family.
Here is one “recipe” I created based on coupon deals I was getting on my weekly grocery trip.
Campbells Gourmet Bisques Bisque, Golden Butternut Squash for $2.99
$0.75/1 Campbell’s Slow Kettle Style Soup or Gourmet Bisque – Coupons.com (Zip Code 06607)
Wegmans Organic Chicken Sausage – $6.49 (used half for $3.25) **note – I spoiled myself and family with organic sausage. You could for sure substitute the organic sausage with a cheaper meat!
Birds Eye Recipe Ready Pasta Primavera mix – $1.99
$0.75/1 Birds Eye Recipe Ready, Any – 11-03-13 SS (exp 02/01/14)
$1.50/1 Birds Eye Recipe Ready – 1-12-14 SS (exp 03/09/14)
Cup of milk
1/2 cup of water
Tsp Olive Oil
Salt & pepper to taste
La Choy Rice Noodles (optional)
= $5.23 (I didn’t count milk, water, olive oil or salt & pepper into meal cost since those are staples you probably have at home anyway. This = $1.30 per serving – makes 4 servings.
Pour the Campbell’s gourmet butternut squash soup base into a soup pan. Add a 1/2 water to the empty cart, shake, and pour “washed out” container into the pan. Add 1 cup milk. Add 1 bag of Recipe Ready veggies. Heat on medium until heated through.
While the soup and veggies are warming up, add 3 sausage links into a pan with a tsp. of olive oil. Heat on medium until light brown (about 10 minutes).
Cut the sausage into bite size pieces and add to the soup. Stir and simmer about 5 more minutes. Add salt & pepper to taste. Garnish with rice noodles (optional).
EASY, FRUGAL, TASTES GOOD = PERFECT!
