Bargain Meal of the Week


Each week, I post a Bargain Meal idea, based on our local New Seasons Market ad of the week. This week’s recipe is a basic hot meal, combined with some fresh produce; perfect for a chilly rainy day! It’s a great “busy day” recipe, since it can just simmer in the crockpot all day. (Wow, I think I need to get one of those; right now, everything just simmers on the stove in our house!)

The original recipe is calls for “Spicy” sausage, but I am substituting a milder turkey sausage, which is on sale this week. If using dry beans, I recommend soaking them prior to cooking. Canned beans can be used for a quicker meal, and would basically just need to be heated up (not cooked for several hours in the crockpot).

Click here for the full recipe:
Beans & Sausage
(I reduced the recipe to 4 Servings.)

1/2 lb Beans or 1 can Beans (Eden Organics on sale for $1.50/can) = $1.50 OR (Bulk Dry Beans at $2.49/lb) = $1.24
5 1/2 cups Water (reduce if using canned beans; just use enough to moisten the pan)
1/2 lb hot Sausage (Shelton’s Turkey Sausage on sale for $3.99/pkg) = $1.99 (1/2 pkg)
1 teaspoon Garlic Granules = $0.22
1/8 cup Parsley = $0.15
1/2 teaspoon Salt

Prepare according to recipe directions, adjusting cooking time if using canned beans.

Serve over Brown Rice (Lundberg Basmati on sale for $3.29/32 oz). = $0.40
(Boil 1 cup dry rice, and serve.)

Serve with 1 lb. Fresh Fruit Slices on the side (Organic apples and oranges are on sale this week).

  • Braeburn Apples (on sale for $0.99/lb) = $0.99 OR
  • Cara Cara Oranges (on sale for $0.99/lb) = $0.99

Total Cost: $5.25 (for 4 servings) using canned beans 

OR $4.99 using dry beans

  • Different colored gems will power up the corresponding bots and each has special
    abilities they can use when fully charged. Discombobulated
    is an amazing gaje that shares more than a
    little with thhe previously mentioned Tetris.

    In addition, puzzle can also help to cultivate children’s patience annd concentration, so that they can sit
    tijght to finish doing a thing.


  • This page really has all of the information I wanted concerning this
    subject and didn’t know who to ask.


  • The simulator planes within the game should appear as genuine as you possibly can. Whenever you get to choose the kind of airplane you fly, you are able to
    fly the Concorde, or you can fly a fighter jet.

    As a result most roulette systems that you try are not going to provide you
    with much better potential for winning compared to if you were to wager at random.


  • Rudder pedals do not have a lot of fancy buttons or lights, but there is
    only so much that your feet can do. What really
    will make a flight SIM realistic is the fact that the control panel models that of a real airplane.
    Exploiting i – Phone 4’s retina display, the game offers excellent 3D visuals and sound.


  • But on the front end is only the LED of the hard disk,
    which is provided near the card reader, reading formats SD, SDHC, SDXC.
    So really, there isn’t any reason not to own and
    play this game. Play about five or ten seconds
    of the song and let them yell out the answer.


  • WOW just what I was looking for. Came here by searching for weekend
