SPROUTS Farmers Market Beats Costco’s Prices for Large Eggs June 17th – 24th

Sprouts Eggs 6.17.2015 - 6.24.2015

People fall victim to the false premise that Costco is always cheaper, and Costco counts on you to do exactly that when you shop there. Sure, it doesn’t make sense to drive all over town to save pennies. However, if you have a SPROUTS Farmers Market near you or on your way home from work, get your eggs there this week (or always). Right now, SPROUTS has their Cage-Free or Omega-3 eggs Large, Grade A or AA for $2.99 per dozen. That beats Costco‘s best price of $15.99 per flat of 5 dozen regular large eggs ($3.20 per dozen regular large eggs). It’s even more expensive at Costco if you buy the smaller quantity of $5.19 per 18 regular eggs ($3.46 per dozen regular large eggs).

Bargains for the week of June 2 – June 8

I see that Albertsons currently has a BOGO, or “Buy One Get One FREE” sale. When you see a good deal, always take the time to figure out the cost per pound.  Albertsons three different price tiers for their meats: Select, Choice and Choice Angus (Stockman & Dakota).  Like Vons, Albertons “brands” their Choice Angus beef to distinguish it from their cheaper Select grade of beef. Albertsons BOGO Boneless Chuck Steaks sounded like a good deal until I called the meat dept. & found you had to buy the “MaxPak” quantity of Stockman & Dakota at $6.49/lb.  so that is just under $3.25/lb. and $1.38/lb. more than Food for Less.

Boneless Beef Chuck Steaks – Food for Less $1.87/lb. And the next best price is Von’s Rancher’s Reserve $2.27/lb.

Red Cherries – Frazier Farms $.99/lb. This is not a good deal, this is an awesome bargain! The regular price at other grocery stores has been $1.99/lb. – $2.50/lb.

Yellow Peaches -Food for Less $.77/lb. This is another awesome bargain because the regular price has been hovering around $2.49/lb.

Raspberries, Blackberries, Bluberries – Sprouts $.99/6 oz. basket

Here is a recipe for Bulgogi Beef marinade that you can use with the beef. This is enough for 1 lb. of beef or one of last week’s bargain chickens from Stater Bro. Marinate the thinly sliced beef, or the chicken cut into serving pieces, at least 2 hours or overnight in the frig. Bring meat in marinade to room temperature before grilling.

Bulgogi Beef Marinade
Mix thoroughly until dissolved:
•3 Tbsp chopped garlic (about 2 cloves)
•3 Tbsp soy sauce
•2 Tbsp sugar
•1 Tbsp honey
•2 Tbsp fresh squeezed juice from an Asian pear
•1 Tbsp Japanese rice wine (mirin)*
•1 Tbsp sesame oil
•3 green onions, finely chopped (including white part)
•1 tsp pepper

Here is a reprint of my Super Easy Fruit Cobbler recipe for those the peaches and berries:

Super Easy Fruit Cobbler
1 stick melted butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. flour
1 t. baking powder
1/2 c. milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/4 t. ground nutmeg
4 C. 1 inch pieces of fruit or berries
Mix all the above together and pour over fruit or berries. Then sprinkle 1/2 cup sugar over batter. Pour 1/2 cup water over sugar and batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour.

Note: For really watery fruit like strawberries, pour only 1/4 water over sugar and batter.
