A SHOP ‘n SAVER, Always.
Pittsburgh Frugal Mom Grilling Story
I consider myself a SHOP 'n SAVER because I know that shopping and saving is exactly what happens each time I shop there! Price Promise items, Essential Everyday, brand name products and Pick 5's make my shopping trips a complete Frugal Deal, but it is not just about the items I can purchase every day at great prices it is about, the weekly specials: the things which help me get a little more in my cart each week to bring home the values and load up the pantry without depleting my budget, that is Shopping and Saving!
GET IT FRESH, FROZEN, WILD & COUNTRY THE POSSIBILITIES ARE ENDLESS!
This week's SHOP 'n SAVE ad boasts deals that are Wild, Fresh, Frozen and Country and the grilling deals are all through the store from produce to the meat department! Are you getting into the Grilling Groove? I know my kids have had the hankering for hamburgers, hot dogs, ribs, steaks and let's face it anything since their appetites are limitless. I love that the grilling deals are HOT HOT HOT this week! I'm making sure my cart will take home things like the Essential Everyday Squeeze Mustard and Ketchup because my family uses these condiments like water and the prices are so frugal that I can't afford to not stock up! Let's take a peek and see what else you can SHOP 'n SAVE on!
If I could make everything into a hot dog, my littlest one would be thrilled because in his world Hot Dogs are the king of the food pyramid! Bar S is $10 for 10 packs, so needless to say these are going in the cart, in my freezer, which makes it a Frozen Frugal Deal! When my little hot dog fanatic requests a hot dog, it's there and it was a great buy! While I don't love dishing hot dogs up as a meal, I feel a bit less guilty when I mix them with Essential Everyday Frozen Vegetables, and Essential Everyday Whole Wheat Pasta buttered because then it becomes a gourmet $3 meal! Frugal, Fresh, and with Wild savings.
My 'Mikey' is a hamburger boy! When we go out, he does not even look at the menu, it's always a “Bacon Cheese Burger." When I fire up the grill it’s, "burgers please mom!" and burgers he shall have, but not just any burgers, rather, Farm Fresh Black Angus Beef Patties right from the freezer in a 32 oz. box! These burgers are a great quick grill throw and the taste sizzles with perfection! I'll add a little bacon and cheese and I will get the Mom of the Year Hug and Kiss after dinner which is what I live for! Let's face it, those hugs and kisses make cooking so worth it, it's like a passport to cook more!
Pittsburgh Frugal Mom Food **Tip Alert **
Fresh, is what the SHOP ‘n SAVE Store Cut Pork is and it's available in a Value Pack at an amazing price! Boneless Country Style Pork Ribs are only $1.99 a pound! IF you are a Frugal Shopper and a cook that likes meals that require very little prep, my guess is you have a crock pot in your house! I am going to give you a great tip for cooking Boneless Country Style Pork Ribs! Stock up on the Boneless Country Style Pork Ribs.
Preparation: Place your ribs in a crock pot, let them cook, drain, transfer to grill, slather with BBQ and then deck them out on your grill with BBQ and get that restaurant quality rib with fall-apart meat on the inside! The price is amazing and the ribs are delicious and will have your guest grabbing for more!
OR .. in case the grilling night, day or occasion gets rained out here is a backup plan!
Grab your 6-8 qt Stock pot, place the Boneless Country Style Pork Ribs in the base of the pot, and cover with 2-3 inches of water! Bring this to a boil, skim the fat (my least favorite job) and then drain after 30 minutes. Place in a baking tray covered with BBQ sauce and then foil (let no air escape) Bake covered on 350 F for one hour and uncovered for an additional 1/2 hour. Of course you will be slathering these with BBQ Sauce and Sweet Baby Ray's is on sale for 3/$5(stock up)
STOCK UP & SAVE
No grilling night is complete without paper plates and plastic cups because I want cleanup to be a breeze so I can just hang out and enjoy the outside! Paper plates are also important to me because they don't break when the kids drop them! Shopper's Value Paper Plates are 4 packages for $5 (no dishwasher, no water, no dishwasher detergent needed!), and Shopper's Value Plastic Cups are one 10/$10. Grilling is fun, fast, easy a break for the kitchen appliances. Get a bigger break on your grilling bill by shopping at SHOP 'n SAVE for all your grilling needs.
Wild, Fresh, Frozen and Country, get your grilling on from the aisles of SHOP 'n SAVE! There are great deals in every aisle thanks to the SHOP 'n SAVER Price Promise. See you in the aisles.
