One of the most economical ways to feed a family is to cook what's on sale. This week cabbage are on sale at Food Lion for 39 cents a pound and smoked sausage packages for $2.00. I saw a cabbage and sausage dish on the Family Homestead Blog and had been craving it ever since. Here's my version:
I sauteed some onions and bell peppers from our own plants, in a small amount of oil.
Then I added the smoked sausage after cutting into bite size pieces.
I sliced and cut one half of the cabbage into manageable pieces. I filled the pan pretty full because the cabbage pieces shrink down as they cook. I added a little chicken broth left from boiling chicken earlier in the week.
I covered the pan, reduced the heat and let it cook until it was our family's desired tenderness.
I put the remaining half of the cabbage back in the fridge to be used for making coleslaw in the next few days.
My goal is to shop only to replenish my pantry and freezer and to cook what's on sale each week at the best prices.
A few items on sale at Food Lion this week that I plan to purchase:
Whole chickens 47 cents a pound or cut up chickens 77 cents a pound. I plan to freeze some of these.
Kraft Mayo 2 for $6.00 with a $1.50 off 2 coupon. Mayo is one thing my pantry is out of and although this isn't exactly the cheapest price I've ever seen, its better than paying full price! The cost of mayo has steadily increased lately in my opinion. I will only purchase two and then I will be on the look out for good deals and/or coupons.
Arm and Hammer laundry detergent, Buy one, get one free, with a $1.00 off 2 coupon.
