Hy-Vee Bargain of the Week 2/11

Hy-Vee ad is out this week with a FANTASTIC sale on whole chickens. More from me this week on the versatility of buying whole chickens versus pieces, especially this week! .59/lb. is an excellent price. In celebration of this, I'm going "rubber chicken" on you, and I'm going to give you TWO meal plans from one chicken and all sale items from Hy-Vee.

Here's your shopping list:

1 4lb. chicken at .59/lb = $2.36

1.5lbs. red potatoes at .88/lb= $1.32

1 lb. asparagus= $1.48

1 bag Hy-Vee salad= .69 (use coupon in ad)

1 package Hy-Vee sliced bacon= $1.99

2 vine ripe tomatoes at .68/lb= .68

1 box Barilla mini ziti pasta= $1.29

1 loaf Amana 100% stone ground bread = $1.99

1.5lbs Disney Jumbo navel oranges at .69/lb= $1.04

Meal #1

(double the recipe for a family of 4--groceries based on that) $2.80

Tossed Salad with sliced tomatoes (use one tomato) $1.03

Total for dinner $6.19 (little over, but you're using part of it tomorrow)
Save leftover chicken and chicken frame for meal #2

Meal #2

Chicken and pasta soup $1.00 for pasta and extras

chicken club sandwiches (use 8 slices bread, 1 tomato, 1/2 package bacon) $2.10

sliced oranges $1.04

Remove chicken for sandwiches and for soup from frame. Put frame and 7 cups of water in pot on stove...let simmer for 2 hours to make stock for soup recipe. Use mini ziti.

On bread, assemble sandwiches with chicken, bacon, tomato slices and condiments of your choice.

slice oranges and serve.
