Tom Leonards: Weekly Specials January 12 -18
Tom Leonard's is such a great market. It's one of the few markets I can take all 3 kids to without issue. We went last week to pick up some chicken at the fabulous stock up price of $1.49/lb and bananas at $.39/lb. They had sold out of the chicken and the next truck was running behind. The kids did not whine or fuss at all while I shopped. They enjoyed the singing animals, acrobats on trapezes, and all of the "try me" samples. We hit the perfect day for samples! We sampled cheese, hummus, cookies, fruit, veggies, crackers, and various snacks. Since they were out of the chicken breasts, I picked up boneless chicken thighs for $1.99/lb. I remembered a recipe that was recommended by a friend, Skinless Chicken Thighs with Shallots in Red Wine Vinegar. I picked up shallots on the way to the register. I made this for dinner and it got rave reviews from the whole family and requests for seconds!
I went back to Tom Leonard's on Sunday for the chicken breasts and picked up a few packages. I cooked some for dinner last night with some Soy Ginger Marinade in my Deep Dish Covered Baker. The rest we sealed up and put in the freezer using some "dump recipes". These make for easy dinners. Just pull out of the freezer and put into the fridge the night before. At lunch time the next day, I can toss it in the crock pot for dinner. Or I can wait to later and bake in the oven.
