Our friends Mac and Amy brought us this Chicken Pasta Alfredo dish after we had the baby (those Sunday School meals are the best). Mr. V scarfed it down and begged me to get the recipe from them! Here it is!
I did pretty well this week at the grocery store(s). I decided to hit up Aldi from some produce and staple-type things to see if I could save some money. While some of the items there were not as cheap as I thought they would be, I definitely saved on the eggs, bread, flour, and sugar I bought. Altogether I spent $36.50 before tax this week on groceries (and $6.25 on wipes and freezer bags).
Aldi–$22.00 before tax
1 doz. eggs
turkey/ham lunchmeat variety pack
5 lb. sugar
sliced cheddar cheese
1 bag onions
oat bran bread
3 lb. bag frozen chicken breasts
Publix–$14.50 before tax
whole wheat penne (1/2 off–.75. Great deal!)
garlic couscous mix (1/2 off)
1.4 lbs. red grapes (.99/lb)
1 bag carrots
Diet Dr. Pepper 2 liter (FREE with coupon from here)
Smart Balance spread
Smart Balance butter blend sticks (FREE with purchase of spread–great coupon! $2.50 value)
DelMonte diced tomatoes (moneymaker–at 1/2 off it was .52, plus I had a .35 coupon that doubled)
Texas Toast (coupon)
Classico alfredo sauce (1/2 off)
Pam spray (1/2 off plus coupon that doubled)
1/2 loaf 5-grain sourdough
Whoo hoo!! I told Mr. V I needed to go buy about 6 more boxes of whole wheat pasta since it was such a good price…and since I came in under budget, I just might!
