Publix Bargain Meal March 5- March 11


It's time for another Publix Bargain Meal! Erin at $5 Dinners hosts a gathering of ideas from all over on making the most out of what is on sale this week at your local store. Check it out.

This week, I checked out Cheap, Fast, Good! by Beverly Mills and Alicia Ross from the library (what a great place!). I had read it before, but I find something new every time I reread a cookbook. This time, I discovered Chicken and Broccoli Lo Mein. I'm not a huge Chinese food fan, but my dear husband is, so I'm always trying to find something that sounds good to me. (this is why finding a good Chinese restaurant is a big deal) This one looks like something we'll both enjoy.

8 ounces linguine--$1
2/3 pound skinless, boneless chicken--on sale $1.99/lb--$1.31
1 cup fresh button mushrooms--on sale $2.50/12 oz--$1.66
1 tablespoon vegetable oil--$0.03
1 large onion--$0.25
1 bag frozen broccoli pieces--on sale 50% off--approx $1
3 cloves garlic--$0.15
2 teaspoons minced ginger--$0.15
3 tablespoons soy sauce--$0.20
1 tablespoon white vinegar--$0.01
1 tablespoon ketchup--$0.03
1 teaspoon sesame oil--$0.15

Total cost--$5.94
