I am always on the lookout for good deals when it comes to groceries. When in a store, I grab the sales papers and swing by the marked down food racks. I hit upon a bargain this weekend when I ran into Walmart to pick up a few items.
In the back of the store, our Walmart has their marked down Bakery products. I found their loaves of sliced French bread marked down to 75 cents a loaf. A great bargain in my book so I bought two!
Monday morning began our adventures with our two loaves of bread. While the children cleaned their rooms I made a hot breakfast....French Toast. A few eggs, a little milk, some cinnamon and vanilla and I had a tasty batter. This bread was sliced thinly so I was able to feed our 8 breakfast eaters on less than a loaf of bread. After grilling the battered bread, we added powdered sugar and sliced strawberries. It was a success!
Lunchtime rolled around and our French bread came to the rescue. I toasted several slices and then spread them with some canned spaghetti sauce. We added black olives, mushrooms and a few veggies that I had on hand. We topped it with grated cheddar and put it all under the broiler for a few minutes for a tasty pizza for lunch.
Much to my amazement we still had some French bread left so at dinner I garliced and buttered it for a yummy addition to our spaghetti dinner. I spent $1.50 for those two loaves of bread so it came out to less than 6 cents a serving for bread. Not a bad deal!
