We picked 3 zucchini, 5 pounds of green beans, 34 cucumbers, 9 tomatoes and several cherry tomatoes. I wasn't expecting to have dozens of cucumbers ready to be picked all at once! We ate a lot of raw cucumbers, sliced them in sandwiches, made cucumber and tomato salads and gave about half of them away.
We tried a few new zucchini recipes this week and they were all delicious. I didn't realize all the things you can make with zucchini! I made Zucchini Lasagna Rolls (so,so good!), Zucchini Blueberry Muffins and Sweet Potato Breakfast Burritos, which earned rave reviews from the boys.
Food City had some great prices in their new sales flyer. I bought eggs for $.77/doz., salad dressing for $1.00 each, green peppers for $.88/lb., boneless, skinless chicken breast for $1.69/lb and cereal for $1.17. You can find some of the best sales and coupon matchups here.
Summer toys are on clearance and I bought jump ropes at Walmart for $.50 each that I will put in Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes.
It's always exciting when I'm surprised with unexpected savings. Our older son noticed a toy in the clearance aisle at Walmart that he really liked and I went back to the store to get it for him for his birthday this month. The price was marked as $9.88, but it rang up at the register as $5.00!
How did you save this week?
