Before I give you a glance at the grocery deals this week, I wanted to apologize for not posting a grocery update LAST week. It seems the friendly Post Office has become unreliable in delivering my grocery flyers and I have turned to looking everything up on the internet! Between that and a sick kid, I just couldn’t get my act together in time. So my apologies.
Now, back to business!
This week we several great meat deals to talk about. One of my favorite cheap and tasty cuts of meat, the pork tenderloin, is on sale at Albertsons (Friday-Sunday) for $1.99/lb. This is a great deal for a healthy cut of meat. You can also find Foster Farms whole chicken on sale (Vons/Safeway for 77¢/lb, Albertsons 99¢/lb), and Foster Farms Split Chicken Breast, Drumsticks or Thighs at Ralphs/Kroger for 99¢/lb.

Keeping it simple makes this meal a Friday night regular and a winner for the Tiger Bay Shrimp Company’s Recipe Contest. Shrimp is easy to prepare and quick to cook, so remember, when it’s pink, it’s done! Don’t overcook it or it will turn to rubber. Served with lemon juice, butter, and artichokes, then serve with pasta or hearty bread. You can even add mushrooms, asparagus or broccoli, too! Click here for the full recipe!
