Kroger Bargain Meal February 22-28


It's time for Kroger bargain meal of the week again! I'm enjoying all the meals that the bloggers over at Erin's $5 dinners are coming up with. Check it out, if you haven't already.

As always, these bargains are based on the southeast area Kroger specials.

I don't know about your house, but at our house, we love breakfast for supper. I borrowed an idea from our pastor's wife early in our marriage, and we often have this meal on Sunday nights. Sundays are just a wash at my house, at least from a food perspective. Between the mad rush to get everyone fed at lunchtime and then the complete and utter "I'm over it" feelings on Sunday night.... Well, if you come to my house, don't expect gourmet on Sundays.

This week's breakfast for supper idea is waffles. Yum! Who doesn't love a beautiful waffle? Crispy on the outside, tender in the middle. Plus, they are one of the 5 meals my husband makes. Oh, how I love waffles. LOL

This recipe is from The Southern Living Ultimate Cookbook and featured on the cookbook junkie's blog.

2 ½ cups all-purpose flour--$0.35
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon baking powder--$0.10
¾ teaspoon salt--pennies
1 ½ tablespoons sugar--$0.05
2 large eggs, beaten--$0.25
2 ½ cups milk (on sale $2.59/gal)--$0.41
¾ cup vegetable oil--$0.30

Add a package of Hormel little sizzlers (on sale for $1)--$1
a pound of apples (on sale $1/pound) served as apple slices--$1
and maple syrup for serving--$1.50

Total cost--$4.61

Hey! I tracked you down through $5 Dinners, which I found through another friend, as blogworld goes. :) I'm a Georgia homemaker, too, homeschooling 3 and eating all meals at home every day - and TRYING to do so on a budget! Lets say I'm learning.

I just had to stop and say that we love breakfast for dinner sometimes, too, and my husband is the king of breakfast foods. I bought the $1 Little Sizzlers this week, too (Kroger is my favorite place to shop, but we have a Publix a mile from us, too, so I hit both most weeks). I love homemade waffles! It's a cheap treat.

Good eats!
