Bargain Meal of the Week- Food Lion


I am so excited to be a part of 5dollar Dinners new feature: Bargain Meal of the Week! I am a bit behind because of being so sick last week. My store is Food Lion and they run the ad from Wednesday to Tuesday. Tomorrow is the end of the ad so these prices will still be good until then. You can view your own weekly ad at Food Lion as prices can vary depending on location. I'm in middle Tennessee.

Here is my meal for the week.
1 pound of cube steak $3.49
2 packages of Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers (one corn, one broccoli and cheese) 2/$3
Total: $6.49

To make Country Fried Steak with Gravy

Most of the items to make the steak and gravy would be pantry items. So this meal would be probably around $8.50 total including those pantry items. My goal is to find more meals around the $5-7 dollar mark. However, even at $8.50 it's much cheaper than eating out! Or even frozen dinners for everyone (which can be $3 each).

My new meal for Food Lion will be up by Thursday. Hope you enjoy!
God bless,

I will have to check out your weekly meals. We live near a Food Lion and sometimes I think they are cheaper than the commissary.
