Cheap and Healthy Meat.

A while back Meijer had their ground turkey in the 10 for 10 get the 11th free sale. Essentially you buy 10 items and get one free( or if you want to get technical, each item works out to $0.90). That time it was only Meijer brand items that were on sale, so I didn't have any coupons to use. I decided to pick up 9 1lb turkey rolls( you know the turkey in a plastic tube), and two bags of pretzels. So I had the turkey in the freezer for a few weeks trying to work up the courage to use it. I really don't like to try new things, it takes me a while to talk myself into it. Well the other day I finally opted to make turkey tacos. I let my husband know what we were having for dinner. He got home and looked in the wok and said I thought you said we were having turkey? Isn't that beef on the stove? I told him it was turkey and he was shocked. We ate dinner and he put his stamp of approval on it. So now in an effort to eat healthier, we are going to use ground turkey in place of ground beef 75% of the time. Meijer has some really good deals this week. I'll try to post them later.
