Bargain Meal of the Week 5/14/10

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 is one of our family's favorites! It is especially good for camping, traveling and when there is a flood! It is a perfect stockpile recipe. It also takes no time at all to make and tastes homemade.
