    Ground beef -- 85% lean -- was $2.49 a pound this week, so couldn't pass it up.

    We had all the ingredients on hand for lasagna and since the temps dropped from near 100 degrees a day or two ago to only 65 degrees today (snow in the mountains :eek:), the long bake time wasn't a problem.

    So Lasagna is our dinner tonight.

    Did a bit of "stacking" today. Managed to use digital coupons on items that were on sale on a 1o percent discount day. :)

    That means we're having organic pizza with organic Caesar salad for dinner tonight.

    Unfortunately, stocking seems to be an issue again lately. They didn't have our favorite pizza -- roasted beet and goat cheese. :(

    We had to "settle" for a Greek Veggie and an Italian Veggie.

    Mulligatawny Soup and Jalapeño Corn Muffins.

    Just barely got the soup finished when the power went out for more than five hours. Had we gone with the original plan of burgers and fries they would have been partially cooked.

    Glad we made a change of plans!

    We are having a hard time with the chicken one which we've got a deal. :rolleyes: Gotta buy three packages at once. First three trips they didn't have a couple varieties. Today I thought we'd have to settle for what was left -- but there wasn't ANY left.

    Then I tried to check the coupon again and it had vanished off our card -- even filtered by the brand name and it was GONE. Just checked a few minutes ago and the coupon is back. Don't have any idea what happened there. :confused:

    Anyway, in place of the chicken we couldn't get we had another round of Spicy Black Bean Burgers with Cheese on Whole Wheat buns, with Oven Fries and a Chopped Salad.

    Tonight we had frozen pizza with ice cream for dessert. Not the healthiest meal, but we went shopping and it was easy. :p
