The Whole Deal’s Meals for Four

Don't get caught in a dinner pinch. You'll save some green and some time by following our weeklong meal plan for four (or a few more). These ideas, recipes and tips are designed to help you get the most from your grocery budget. How lucky is that? MONDAY: Veggie Monday 365 Everyday Value® bottled pasta sauce over our frozen Ravioli alongside a Spring Salad with Strawberries and Creamy Orange-Avocado Dressing adding more salad greens. TUESDAY: Fresh Twist Try a new take on pasta primavera with our recipe for Quinoa Primavera with Chicken, Spring Peas and Asparagus. WEDNESDAY: St. Pat’s Dinner Remember the budget tip of serving smaller portions of very flavorful meat with larger side dishes when you have corned beef with Cabbage and Cheddar Gratin. Stash lots of corned beef for sandwiches a few days later. THURSDAY: 2010 Comfort Food This one’s simple and awesome! Chicken Taco Pizza. A giant green salad makes it a satisfying meal. FRIDAY: Go Farmed Fish Kids love our Creamy Smoked Salmon Pasta with Dill recipe. Try substituting a half pound broiled farm-raised salmon for the smoked salmon—and look for our new Responsibly Farmed logo. WEEKEND: Brunch for a Bunch! Feed a crowd with Savory Sausage and Cheddar Breakfast Casserole using Australian cheddar (a Sure Deal!) and our house-made link sausages, removed from the casing. Make small versions of Vanilla Berry Yogurt Parfaits and serve 365 Everyday Value® Organic Orange Juice--it’s a Sure Deal and meets our Whole Trade Guarantee! The Whole Deal value guide is packed with more great meal ideas, budget-friendly recipes, money-saving tips, Sure Deals and valuable coupons. What are you having for dinner this week?
