Turkey vs chicken prices

Sunday, December 30, 2012

Yesterday 12-2-12 we were at Sams Club in Duluth, Mn.
I noticed the normal ground turkey I buy was $2.66/lb verses the whole chicken breast which was $1.76/lb. Wanting to save $$$ I bought the chicken breast and am grinding it myself. It is a tad messy but I do have the day off and it did save us $13.00 minus the freezer wrap. I took this opportunity to be creative and made up some burgers with onions, kale and a small amount of Hidden valley ranch dressing (dry). There were very tasteee! and came in at 156 calories and that was for 4 ounces of ground chicken pre cooked weight.
This is a do again and I love that I was able to do something with my kale that I have in the freezer.

    Always nice when we can come up with how to cook something that is liked enough to cook it again.

    Amazing what we can come up with for healthy eating! I made a wild rice egg bake for Christmas morning brunch and put chopped kale in it, and I also like to just tear it into about 1" pieces, spray with olive oil PAM, sprinkle with a little lemon pepper, and broil till crispy.
