Frugal Five Star: The Anatomy of Surf and Turf

Making delicious & impressive five star meals doesn't need to be expensive. No need to spend at least $25 each entree at a fancy shmancy restaurant! This Surf and Turf delight was made on a tight budget. Here's a breakdown of the meal . . .

1. Lobster Tails  (these are on sale right now this week at Harris Teeter for only 2.99 each!!!)

2. Uncle Ben's Ready Rice (this was free using the $1.00 off one coupon from the 7/11/10 Smart Source--then I waited to buy until my grocery store doubled it to get it for FREE!!! expires 9/5/10)

3. Chef's Requested Bacon Wrapped Fillets (there is a super hot coupon for $3.00 off any 8oz or greater Chef's Requested product coupon after you sign up for the newsletter Here!!! They sell these at Wal Mart for $3.68 for 2 fillets, which turns out to be only .68 for 2 after the coupon!!!! That's .34 cents a fillet!!! You can also splurge on the filet mignons they carry, which would turn out to be about $1.50 each--still an awesome price!!!

4.  A1 Steak Sauce--this was also free, but I have to admit I got it a long while ago and the coupon is no longer around . . . but do not fear. . . I found you a coupon for $1.00 off Heinz 57 Sauce and it looks like it can be used on their steak sauce or any of their other Heinz 57 Sauce Products!!!

5. The veggies (onions, peppers, tomatoes) were all purchased from my local Asian grocery store. This is my little secret to purchasing cheap produce. I always seem to find the produce at my local ethnic markets to be cheaper than chain grocery stores. I got the peppers for less than .50 a piece, which is good around my area!!!

So, the total cost for this Frugal Five Star was under $5.00 per person!!!  You can get a footlong for that much, but did you know you could get a Five Star meal for that much?!?!

FREE Salsa: Let's have a FIESTA!!!

Salsa is delicious . . . it's fresh, flavorful, calorie friendly, pretty, but most importantly it's DELICIOSO!!!!!! 

One of my favorite ways to enjoy it (other than with chips) is to put the whole jar in the crockpot with a few chicken breasts. Let it cook all day and shred it.  Then you have scrumptious chicken to use as nacho topping or taco filling, in burritos, and enchiladas or use it any way you want!  It's sooooo easy (& healthy)!!!

Here is a roundup of everything to have yourself one heck of a fiesta!!!!

This week (starting today!) you can head to Harris Teeter to score FREE Newman's Own Salsa!!!  It's on sale Buy One Get One Free . . . so use a coupon here for  .50 off one or .75 off one here and enjoy!!!  I love the mango salsa & the peach salsa! 

There's also a **caliente** coupon for Wholly Salsa if you head here and join the party!  The coupon is for $1.00 off and can also be used on guacamole or queso!!!!  I've never had their queso, but LOVE the salsa and guac . . . is it any good?

You gotta get some tortilla chips for all that salsa . . . make your way on over here and scroll about halfway down the page to get yourself a $1.00 off Grande Tortilla Chips coupon!  (Although it is from the Earth Fare website, it is in fact a Manufacturer Coupon, so there shouldn't be a problem using it anywhere)! Talk about a CRUNCHY DEAL!!! has even more to add to the party . . . check out the Chi-Chi's coupons. 1.00 off any 2 Chi-Chi's products and one for 1.00 off Chi-Chi's snackers (individual salsa cups!) and 1.00 off Chi-Chi's fiesta plates. (Use zip 27804 if you can't find 'em!)

Did you ever try using plain greek yogurt in place of sour cream to top off those nachos?  It works perfectly and tastes so good!  Plus, it's easy on your waistline!  Go right here to print off your coupon for .30 off Yoplait Greek yogurt cups!

Nobody would be happy if we forgot the cheese! Shredded cheese is a must, so head on over here to print your Kraft cheese coupon (good for $1.00 off 2 packages of Kraft natural shredded cheese)!
