The Whole Deal's Meals for One



Making a meal for one is a lot tougher than it sounds. You can't live on carry-out alone and you sure don't want to be eating leftovers for a week. So, what's a solo guy or gal to do? Turn to The Whole Deal! You'll find a week's worth of Meals for One ideas that are simple, tasty and affordable. They are so good, you just might be okay with eating leftovers.Take a look:MONDAY: Veggie MondayUse the organic bread coupon from the in-store The Whole Deal value guide to make the best grilled cheese ever - perhaps cheddar with sautéed apples and onions, or mozzarella with arugula and sundried tomatoes. Add a green salad. TUESDAY: Use Your NoodlesToss broccoli and chicken with soy-ginger sauce to serve over our 365 Everyday Value Egg Noodles (a Sure Deal! at $1.99 for 16 oz) and then sprinkle with sesame seeds and cilantro or scallions. Tip: Buy only the broccoli you need at the salad bar.


WEDNESDAY: Black Bean SoupPurchase prepared soup from the deli, make your own with canned black beans and veggie broth adding cooked ham or bacon if you choose or find a recipe that sounds good and make soup from scratch using economical dried beans. (If you cook a pot, freeze serving size portions for easy meals later!) Enjoy with Quinoa Cornbread or cornbread from our bakery.THURSDAY: 2010 Comfort FoodCreate a satisfying one-pot meal by mashing a boiled or baked potato with cooked chopped collard greens. Top with slices of browned chicken sausage (coupon in the in-store guide). Freeze extra sausages singly for later use.
