Cooking the Deals of June 12-18

Not everything that is included here is at rock bottom prices this week, but some of you may have a lot of this on hand already and paid less for it.
Since I find it easier to plan ahead, than try to play catch-up, I will be posting the meal ideas part-way though the week (I'm shooting for having it done by Tuesday night, so you know might have a better idea of what you want to get at Rainbow on Double Daze on Wednesday), with the idea that you can do your grocery shopping for the next week. But of course, if you see something you just have to try then why wait until next week? Cook it up tonight for dinner!

Keep in mind though, that I do assume that you will have some of the staples stock-piled on hand. When you're starting off you may not have some of these things stock-piled, but as you go you will!

A "*" denotes items I have on hand that I have gotten for free.

Rainbow Shoppers (that's me!)... check out the list of deals this week at Rainbow.
And for those without a near-by Rainbow... check out the list of deals at Cub.

First, I wanted to share this recipe that looked really yummy for the summer. Cantaloupe is at Rainbow for $2 this week, and I found this Cantaloupe Soup recipe that sounded too good not to share! Maybe you could use it with a meal or bring it to a picnic or something!
