A few things I’d like to share: Normally I don’t purchase pre-made burgers but the price was excellent & I thought they’d come in handy for a quick meal later in the week when we have too many things going on. It does very little good to plan lengthy time consuming menus – if you don’t have time to prepare the recipes on it!

  1. Generally Aldi’s (produce), Pricechopper, Walmart, Sam’s Club (Meats), and farmers markets. But it depends on the state, when traveling we also use Shaws, Shop & Save, Food Lion, Sweet Bay, and a few others.

    For example- aldi’s has strawberries, green grapes, red grapes for just .99 per pound this week. http://aldi.us/us/html/offers/weekly_ads_ENU_HTML.php

    The majority of our menu is fresh fruits, veggies and grilled meats.

  2. thank you. I live in upstate vermont in the middle of no where. we have a price chopper and hannafords in the next town and that is it. super walmart is 1 hour 15 mins away.
