Bargain Meal of the Week 3/19/10

It's time for another week of Bargain Meals! Erin over at $5 Dinners (a great read!) is hosting a gathering of bloggers all over the Internet, creating frugal meals straight from the sales circulars of their favorite stores. Check it out for even more inspiration. I contribute every week for the current sales at Publix, which run from Wednesday to the following Tuesday. Keep in mind that you do not need to purchase two of a product to get the buy one get one price. Publix marks down their products to half price for the BOGO deals.

This recipe has been around for a long time. Whenever I pick up cookbooks that date to the 1940's and 1950's there are usually several versions of this recipe in it. It's a great quick recipe and one that kids often like.
