I don't know if these posts will be an every week thing forever, because I'm sure somewhere along the line I will run out of things to share with you. Or you will get tired of seeing pictures of my groceries. It is very possible. :) For now, I'm going to share these updates when I have deals to post in hopes that it is a help or encouragement to someone on a similar real food journey. It also motivates me to try and get the best possible deal and find yummy ways to use those items!
Here are some deals I got this week:
I found I didn't need a whole lot of groceries this week, and really focused on finishing up some leftovers before they went bad. (aka, I FINALLY finished the beans!) but I did pick up these items...
Cadia Organic Vegetable Broth: $1.99 I found a recipe I want to try! :)
Larabars: $.89 I stocked up since the sale price is ending :/
Clif Bars: $.99
Philadelphia cream cheese: 2/$3
And here are the recipes I tried:
I saved this Football Cheeseball recipe on FB weeks ago, and when I brought up the recipe I was pleased to find that is used all real food ingredients! (Ok, real pepperoni might be a stretch...) It was super easy to make and so yummy!! I greatly enjoyed the leftovers as a work snack. (I did leave out the pimentos because I couldn't find any)

One of my absolute favourite things to eat is this recipe for Brussels Sprouts and bacon over pasta. I know, those do NOT seem to go together, but it is delicious. And I am not one for weird food combinations, so just trust me when I say this is GOOD. I cooked up the Brussels and bacon and put it over couscous, since I had some on hand I had gotten on sale back a while ago. It was good! I also had some leftover roasted sweet potatoes from last week. All in all, a VERY inexpensive meal, and it left me with one serving of leftovers. (well, probably several servings of the couscous...because apparently couscous multiplies like beans do ;)
I also used the cheap organic tomato paste I got last week to make a batch of Tomato Macaroni soup - and easy crockpot recipe I will be sharing soon!
I'd love to hear if YOU found any good grocery deals this week? And please, if you have any recipe ideas for me using veggies, do share!
