With our freezer stash of chicken nearly gone, I was thrilled to see the sale on boneless, skinless chicken breasts at Nob Hill this week (Safeway had them at full price: $5.99/lb).  Along with their sales on a lot of Organic produce and raw almonds (David's everyday snack at work), it was a no-brainer to shop with them.  Cooking Light magazine did a chicken overhaul in last month's issue that gave me a ton of ideas for stuffing chicken breasts so, I decided to take advantage of baby spinach being on sale for one night's meal, as well as sauteing it down with ground beef (from last week's purchases!) and making calzones again this week (David loved them!).  Although I have no meals planned this week using ground turkey this week, it was a great price to stock up on for future weeks.

Another bonus of shopping with Nob Hill: when you spend $50 you receive $0.10 off every gallon of gas (discount prints on your receipt and is good for 90 days); if you spend $100 you receive $0.25 off every gallon of gas.  I filled up my 16gallon tank after shopping today (my gas light was on!) and saved $4.  Very cool!
