      Just made this from allrecipes with my stockpile. The only thing not on sale is the celery. Add cajun seasoning and sausage for extra flavor.

      Black-eyed Pea Gumbo
      * 1 tablespoon olive oil
      * 1 medium onion, chopped
      * 1 medium green bell pepper, chopped
      * 5 stalks celery, chopped
      * 2 cups chicken broth
      * 1 cup brown rice
      * 4 (15 ounce) cans black-eyed peas with liquid
      * 1 (10 ounce) can diced tomatoes and green chiles
      * 1 (14.5 ounce) can diced tomatoes
      * 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped


      1. Heat the olive oil in a large saucepan over medium heat, and cook the onion, pepper, and celery until tender. Pour in the chicken broth, and mix in rice, black-eyed peas with liquid, diced tomatoes and green chiles, diced tomatoes, and garlic. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, and simmer 45 minutes, or until rice is tender. Add water if soup is too thick.

        BTW, saw Rotel BOGO. Must be an unadvertised special that ends today.

          Just made the black eyed pea gumbo. Made it as is without the cajun seasoning or sausage. Thanks for sharing! This recipe is a keeper! The whole family loved it. The recipe made plenty. We have enough for leftovers and I gave some to my neighbor who is helping us with a garden project this week.

      another dinner idea i saw was a crab cake served on a bed of spinach or lettuce. add a side of soup that is on sale and it's dinner time!

    • Germaine Jenkins

      Love the curry and fettuccine meal ideas (and the black-eyed pea gumbo recipe posted below). Made grilled chicken and eggplant sandwiches from stockpile including B1G2 chicken from the Teeter and $.99 cent a pound veggies from Publix.

      You are so wonderful. Thank you.

      Here is a great soup recipe using the Del Monte Fresh Cut veggies. I buy multiples and put all the cans for one recipe in a bag in my pantry. That way when I want to make the soup, everything's together. This is the original recipe:

      Five Can Soup recipe

      Source: Del Monte

      WW points: 3 for the entire pot

      Makes 7-8 cups

      1 (14.5 ounce) can Del Monte Fresh Cut Whole New potatoes, drained and cubed

      1 (14.5 ounce) can Del Monte Fresh Cut Sliced Carrots, drained

      1 (14.5 ounce) can Del Monte Fresh Cut Zucchini with Italian-Style Tomato Sauce

      1 (14.5 ounce) can Del Monte Fresh Cut Diced tomatoes with Basil, Garlic and Oregano

      1 (14 ounce) can chicken or beef broth

      Combine all ingredients in large pot. Bring to a boil; then reduce heat and simmer 3 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper

      This is my version of the recipe:

      Seven Can Soup

      1 (14.5 ounce) can Del Monte Fresh Cut Diced New Potatoes, drained

      1 (14.5 ounce) can Del Monte Fresh Cut Sliced Carrots, drained

      1 (14.5 ounce) can Del Monte Fresh Cut Zucchini with Italian-Style Tomato Sauce (I put this in my electric chopper which liquefies it all because I don’t like chunks of zucchini in my soup)

      1 (14.5 ounce) can Del Monte Fresh Cut Diced tomatoes with Basil, Garlic and Oregano (sometimes I throw this in the chopper too if I am not in the mood for chunks of tomatoes)

      1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth

      1 can of corn drained

      1 can of black eye peas, drained

      ground beef cooked or a can of chicken or white meat from a rotisserie chicken (just whatever you’ve got)

      1/2 cup of shell pasta or noodle pasta or whatever you have

      Combine all ingredients in a large pot and bring to a boil. Cook until pasta is done.

      (I had posted this elsewhere but thought here was the best place.)

      I attended your workshop in Huntsville last week — which was great. This is my first ever attempt at couponing. I was most concerned with being able to make meals from the stock in my pantry or from items on sale. I usually plan out menus and shop from a list of ingredients. I was so happy to see these menu ideas based on the sale items at Publix! You saved me a bunch of time and effort. We had the 3 bean chili today — it was ready in the crock-pot after church and had the shrimp dinner last night. I substituted the WIne and Herb flavored broth for the Curry flavored b/c I knew my four young ones wouldn't go for the curry. Everyone loved both meals! Thanks! I've been telling everyone all about your website. (Unrelated side note: I had so much fun at Rite Aid this week! I signed up for +ups and have already saved over $90!)

      How can you print the Menu ideas without printing everything else on this page?
