Best Deals for the Week-Sunset Foods!

After carefully reading this weeks grocery store sale flyers I have determined that our very own locally owned grocery chain, Sunset Foods, has the best deals.  Sunset Foods is known for it's quality meats, deli items and prepared dinners, but it is also a very affordable and well stocked grocery store.  Here are some of my favorite pics for the week 9/30-10/07.  

Ribeye Steak $7.99/lb (Save $4.00/lb)
Wild American Shrimp Medium 26-30 count $6.98/lb (save 3.00/lb)
Red Gold Canned Tomatoes-Diced or Stewed 10 for $10 (save $6.90)

Special K Cereal 4/$10 (save $8.36)
Flav-R-Pac  16 oz bag Frozen Veggies 10 for $10 (save $5.90) selected varieties

Also Featured in the Flier are two of my favorite food items.  It's not clear if they are on sale, but the price seems to be low for such a wonderful product.

Niman Ranch Boneless Chuck Roast $4.99/lb
Honeycrisp Apples $1.99 (Btw, Jewel advertised Honeycrips Apples at $2.49/lb with preferred card)

So what's for dinner?

Company Pot Roast.  Ina Garten, aka The Barefoot Contessa, has an amazing recipe for Pot Roast where you will able to use the Niman Ranch Chuck Roast and a couple of cans of Red Gold Tomatoes.  The recipe may be found on the Food Network website
Niman Ranch,, is one of the best meat companies out there not only because their USDA Graded choice meats are antibiotic and hormone free, grown on grass, humanely treated and born and raised in the US, but because they are delicious!!  It is my first choice for all meat products and my first choice for great recipes is Ina Garten.  Her recipes are simple and always fantastic.  This recipe for Company Pot Roast received 85 reviews on the Food Network website earning it 5 stars!

Mr. Jim's Barbecue Shrimp This famous New Orleans recipe was featured in August 2009 issue of Martha Stewart Living.  Shrimp cook very fast so they are the perfect quick dinner ingredient.  This recipe also has few ingredients, most of which you may already have in your pantry.  It was so good I wanted to drink the sauce!!  Save this for a date night with your significant other.  After you put the kids to bed, open some wine, put on some music and a romantic dinner for two will be ready in minutes.   Serve with crusty bread and your favorite premixed salad.

Take advantage of these sale items and other great deals at Sunset Foods.  Stock your pantry with extra pasta, tomatoes, cereal and fill your freezer with frozen veggies.  For a great healthy last minute dinner make a sauce with a couple of can's of Red Gold Tomatoes, your favorite Italian seasonings, salt and pepper, and toss with cooked pasta and steamed frozen spinach or peas. Barilla Pasta Plus is loaded with fiber and protein, which is hard to find in most kid approved carbohydrates.  Watch them devour their dinner instead of throw it on the floor!
