      This recipe is for Southwest Chicken Soup. The following items are on sale this week or were on sale last week: chicken breast (Kroger), Progresso Chicken broth (Publix) and Green Giant Steamers (Publix/Kroger?). I would substitute popcorn for the tortilla strips (unless you have chips in the cabinet). My kids love to add popcorn to their soup or as a side. You could also make rice and add chicken broth in lieu of water to give it some flavor.

      Hi Jenny — Here's a family favorite recipe that we made today with all of our sale items:


      This recipe uses a muffin pan for the meatloves and makes it very quick, cute and freezable for the on-the-run family.

      By accident, I discovered a great way to make it. I had some of ground beef (that I had bought at Kroger for $5.99 per roll) in a large ziplock in the freezer. After defrosting, I added the water and bread crumbs and mushed it up inside the bag. Kept my fingers nice and clean!

      Another note: I ran out of bread crumbs and made breadcrumbs from the $.39 loaf I bought on clearance at Kroger last week.

      You can make this 3 ways: American (w/ BBQ sale sauce you probably bought on sale earlier in the summer – mine was free); Italian (bought this on BOGO last week at Publix); or Mexican (w/ salsa — not on sale too often but store brands are ok).

      Served with salad (BOGO at Publix this week), bread from clearance rack ($1 for 12 rolls), green beans, and instant mashed potatoes.
