Bargain Meal of the Week - Price Chopper NY

Bargain Meal of the Week

Week of 3/29/09

Hatfield Country Style Whole Boneless Ham $1.99/lb
Dole Pineapple Rings 10/$10 buy 1 can for $1.00
Fresh Broccoli Crowns 99cents
Betty Crocker Scalloped Potatoes 99cents
(if you have a coupon for the potatoes or for Dole, your total will be even less!)
Note: You will have to buy a whole ham but you only need about a pound of it for your dinner.
My suggestion: Cut the ham before you cook it. First cut it in half. Then from each half cut about a pound worth of ham steaks. Bag them up seperately and put them in the freezer. Then put your other pound or so of ham into another bag to bake another time.

Place ham in baking dish. Pour pineapple juice over it and pineapple rings. Let pineapple rings on the pan heat through with the ham. It will add a nice flavor and warm pineapple from the oven is a favorite of mine!
Steam broccoli crowns as you normally do (I have a handy gadget from Pampered Chef that allows me to steam veggies right in the microwave - I think it's called the micro-cooker).
Cook potatoes according to directions on box.
Total cost: About $5...maybe a little more depending on how much ham you use!


  1. Steamed broccoli is even better cooked with basil. I have 3 girls (9, 2,& 2) and they actually ask for broccoli at the store and ask for seconds when we have it for dinner.

  2. Yum,that sounds good! I'll have to try it. Do you use fresh? I'm hoping to get some herbs growing soon!
