My newsroom friend Niesha shares this recipe, which is from Bon Appetit. It makes great sandwiches, for home or work.
Lemon Tarragon Chicken Salad
1 store-bought rotisserie chicken
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup low-fat mayonnaise
2 tbsp chopped fresh tarragon
2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp grated lemon peel
Sliced bread (rye is suggested, but wheat also tastes good)
Thinly sliced romaine lettuce
Prep: Shred chicken, cutting away skin and fat. Mix celery, mayo, tarragon, lemon juice and zest in a large bowl to blend. Stir chicken into mixture and season with salt and pepper. Spread on bread. Chicken salad can be kept covered in fridge for about 3 days.
And a Shop Cheap shopper from El Dorado Hills shares his Walmart story:
I know you list the coupons and specials at the major grocery chains, but I think you might want to mention how great the prices are at Walmart Supercenters for groceries.
I know they aren't everywhere and that people may have to drive to get to them, but the prices are considerably cheaper. I have three kids so I end up buying a lot of the same things every week. I was a loyal Raley's shopper but with the tough economic times, I have been trying to save money in evey place possible.
Thus I switched to Safeway and I focused on many of the weekly specials, stocking up when I thought they had good deals. I had heard that Walmart had good prices but I had never been. I finally went to the one in Orangevale and I was shocked by the price differential. My kids eat Spagetthi-o's with meatballs so I end up buying them every week. On a special week at Safeway I may be able to get them for $1.25 a can. Not on special it is closer to $3. At Walmart, the everyday price is $1. Again my kids like eating Gripz. Regularly nearly $5 a box at Safeway. Rarely on sale. 2 for 5 bucks at Walmart. (I found them in the larger Walmart in Roseville)
If the price difference was a dime or a quarter, it wouldn't be worth the special trip. But these prices are amazing.
