Week 1 at May 16 - 23 prices

Friday, May 17, 2013

Another week of not much in the way of good sales. Darn. That means a lot of eggs and chicken again, like last month. But I decided to have at least one new recipe each week to mix things up a bit.

Here's what is on sale this week -
Aldi -
- b/s chicken breast for $1.69/lb
- frozen cut broccoli for 85 cents per lb

Kroger -
- bone in and skin on chicken breast, thighs or drums for $.97 per lb
- hamburger patties for $4.77/3 lbs - I'll have to check and see if there's anything but meat in them
- eggs for $1.00/dozen
- zucchini for 97 cents per lb

Marsh -
- whole boneless pork loin for $1.99/lb
- whole chickens for 88 cents per lb
- Perdue whole chickens for 99 cents per lb
- butter for $1.50/lb

Not much of a selection, is it?
