A Month of Meals: March

Every month, our local grocery stores feature 10% off the total grocery bill the first Tuesday of the month. We call it ten percent Tuesday. Or terrible Tuesday, depending on who's talking.

I plan our suppers for the entire month so I can stock up on meat and pantry items. Vegetables are picked up weekly.

Here's what was on special this week:

Chicken Breast $2.99/lb
Lean Ground Pork $2.99/lb
Stewing Beef 3.99/lb
Pork Shoulder Blade Steak 2.79/lb
Bacon $4.99/500 grams (a little more than a pound)

Lean ground beef was on sale last week for $2.99/lb. We picked up 7 pounds, maybe?
